Saving My Enemy – Echoes of the Good Samaritan in the Tanakh
We all know the parable of the Good Samaritan well. There was a victim that was beaten, two men did not help him, but the third man, a Samaritan did. When telling this story, Yeshua intentionally mentions specific details that reveal more about the story. From the priest and the Levite to the specific way the Samaritan helped the wounded man, all find their roots in the Hebrew Old Testament.
