The Word Among Us
Pray at Notre Dame University, Indiana
A scholar of religious law, in order to challenge Jesus, asked him,
"Teacher, who should I consider to be my neighbor?"
Jesus replied with
"A man fell victim to robbers
Jerusalem to Jericho.
They stripped and beat him and went off leaving
A priest happened to be going down that road,
but when he saw the victim, he passed by on the opposite side.
a Levite came to the place,
and when he saw the
victim, he too passed by on the opposite side.
But a Samaritan traveler
who came upon the victim
was moved with compassion
at the sight.
He approached him,
poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them.
Then he lifted
him up on his own animal,
took him to an inn, and
cared for him.
The next day he took out two silver coins
and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction,
'Take care of him.
If you spend more
than what I have given you,
repay you on my way back.'
Which of these three, in your opinion,
was neighbor to the robbery victim?"
The scholar answered,
"The one who treated him with mercy."
Jesus responded to him, "Then go
and do likewise."
