The Good Samaritan Summary in English
The short story ‘ The Good Samaritan’ is a Parable narrated by Jesus Christ to his disciples. Long-time ago a man was walking from Jerusalem to Jericho, suddenly, he was attacked by two robbers, who beat him up and stole everything he had and also the clothes on his back.
The man lay bleeding beside the road. A Priest come along and saw the bleeding man. Instead of helping the bleeding man the priest backed away quickly and went on his way. Then another man came along and saw the man lying in the dirt, covered with blood. The man hesitated to touch him because of his terrible state and went away.
Eventually, a Samaritan comes down the road. He came over to the man and gently cleaned the man with water and also gave him some water to drink. He cleaned the wounds with a little wine to make them heal quickly. He put the man on his donkey and brought him back to town. Although the wounded man was a Jew, the Samaritan helped and saved him. Jews and Samari¬tans had been enemies for hundreds of years.
The Samaritan gave some money to an innkeeper and asked him to give a clean bed and to take good care of the man until he was strong again. After narrating this parable Jesus Christ asked his disciples which of the three men was true neighbour to the man who was robbed.
An expert at Jewish law quickly said that a the true neighbour of the robbed man was the one who helped him.
Jesus then asked them to go out and do just the same i.e, to help their fellow human beings.
Thus Jesus Christ’s disciples understood that he wanted them to love and help everybody, especially strangers who needed help.
