samaritan (3)

Parable of the good Samaritan (another look)

In the gospel of Luke, in chapter 10:27-37, we find the wonderful parable of the good Samaritan.  Jesus uses this to teach several valuable lessons.  We should help others and sacrifice at times for the sake of others, but several years back it dawned on me that it seems to give a hint about the time of the second advent.  I decided to bring it up again because of something posted on this site about the return of Jesus. I will simply focus on part of the parable.  Below is verses 33,34, and 35....

 33"But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee."

You will notice in verse 35 that the Samaritan gives the innkeeper money.  Most translations indicate that this is two Danarii, and some will add a note that this is about two days wages.  after this the Samaritan says he will return.  Now think of the verse where it says that to God a 1000 years is a mere day, although the number 1000 is often used to indicate completeness (note Psalm 50).  To cut to the chase, the good Samaritan is Jesus, who is going to return in about 2000 years.  The injuries suffered by the man are attacks from the devil on people, likewise the oil and wine are representing both spirit and blood of Christ, which heal us.  The inn and the keeper might represent the true church and its overseers.. This might be indicating 2032 or so as the final coming.  Maybe I am reaching a little, perhaps thinking too much on this but it is interesting.

The Sin of Neglect

"I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me." (Matt. 25:40)

Not doing a good or helpful thing is the sin of neglect.  All that evil needs to succeed is for good people to do nothing.  Sloth and neglect is a very common sin.  It is very noticeable among church going Christians when they praise good deeds then turn a blind eye to injustice. In the story of the Good Samaritan, the priest and a certain levite were pointed out and censured by Yeshua because they did nothing.  They gave no assistance when it was in their power to do so.  They simply left the injured person in the dirt. They probably were the types that preach hell fire and brimstone when in front of a crowd then when nobody is looking they will take out a flask of whiskey and curse their neighbor while they count that money received.

Moral evil is the absence of justice as surely as darkness is the absence of light

The Good Samaritan

(Luke 10:24-37)

After Yeshua affirmed that the two greatest commandments are to love God, with your heart, and to love your neighbor as yourself, the man asked the question, 'Who is my neighbor?'  Yeshua answered the man with a parable about a robbed man that no one would help accept a good Samaritan.  He explained how the person who helps and is kind is the true neighbor.  Lovingkindness is a fruit of the spirit....  One might also wonder if the parable has another message within it. Maybe Yeshua is the ultimate Samaritan? Lets examine a theory~~

First we see a MAN who is attacked and robbed by villians. He is left half dead (verse 30).  Could this man represent ADAM who was robbed and left half dead by Satan? In verses 31 & 32 we see that two pretenders come by and act indifferent to the robbed and injured traveler.  They are like so many now that speak as if they care but on the inside they only care about themselves and sports or pleasure.  They walk on by as fast as they can..

Finally (verses 33/34) a person with compassion comes by, a certain Samaritian, who lends help.  He pours OIL and WINE upon the wounds of the victim and dresses the injuries..  It reminds us of the LORD shedding his blood and the Holy Spirit coming...

We further see that the Samaritan puts the injured man on his donkey and brings him to an INN (a church) and pays the KEEPER (pastor) to watch over the injured man.  The Samaritan says he WILL RETURN and pay the keeper but in the meantime gives him two denaries...(about two days wages..).  It is not hard to figure out the possible significance of the two denaries.  If you don't know I will point it out to you.

Obviously the good neighbor is one with compassion & kindness (chesed) toward others.  It does matter if you have a ministry or if you are a nurse, caregiver, or a person with compassion, kindness is a universal language.
