The Good Samaritan


The Good Samaritan
from the New Testament
Bible 11

(Story on the back of the 5X7 greeting card)


Jesus replied to an inquisitive lawyer that he must serve God and love his neighbor to have eternal life. “But who is my neighbor?” asked the doubtful lawyer. Jesus told of a traveling man who was stripped, robbed, wounded and left half dead by thieves. First a priest came by, but he crossed the road and passed by the stricken man. Next came a church official who also passed by, offering no help. Finally a despised Samaritan came by. He lifted up the man, dressed his wounds, seated him on his own donkey and took him to an inn where he paid the innkeeper to care for him. When questioned by Jesus, the lawyer had to admit that the good Samaritan was the kind and caring neighbor. “Go, and do thou likewise,” said Jesus.

BOOKS ABOUT THE GOOD SAMARITAN

Donkey to the Rescue: The Good Samaritan's Donkey (Bible Animal Board Books) by Tim Dowley and Steve Smallman (illus). (2005 - Ages 9-12)
Review
This charming little board book retells Christ's parable of the Good Samaritan from Luke 15:11-31 from the perspective of the Samaritan's donkey, who was also along for the ride! The book places an emphasis on the emotions of the donkey, which mirror the types of feelings young children go through on a daily basis: grumpy, hot, tired and perhaps not in the mood to help out! Donkey and his rider take time out of their day to help a man in need, reinforcing the concept that we should take time to be of service to anyone we encounter along our path that might need a helping hand.
The book contains a reference to the passage in Luke where this story is told, to encourage parent and child to explore the Bible together.

Review
We own several of these Patricia Pingry books. They are long enough to give basic information on each subject but just short enough to finish reading to my 3 and 4 year old before their attention span runs out. They are also pretty durable.

The Good Samaritan by Dandi Daley Mackall. (1995 - Ages 4-8)
Review
In a few pages, this small and brief book retells Jesus' parable of the good Samaritan found in THE BOOK OF LUKE (10:25-37). Told in rhyming couplets, the story follows the man on his way to Jericho who becomes the victim of robbers. Beaten and left for "half dead," a priest and a Levite both walk by and ignore the man who greatly needs help. Finally, a Samaritan man comes to his rescue despite social and religious conventions and shows his compassion to the man in need. At the end of the book, the moral of upholding the relationship of neighbors is reinforced. This book has lovely illustrations in the form of bright and broad cartoons that children will find very attractive.
