Who Was the Good Samaritan?

Kids will experience the Parable of the Good Samaritan and contemplate what it means to us. In the story, Jesus Christ is the Samaritan, giving His life for us and caring for all of our needs. Out of gratitude for His sacrifice, we can care for one another. The “neighbor” God wants us to love is not just the person next door, but everyone who is made in the Lord’s image…that’s all people!

The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37, NIV) 

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply, Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Good Samaritan Parable Sunday School Lesson

Who does God call us to love? What does He mean when He tells us to “love thy neighbor”? The Parable of the Good Samaritan paints a clear picture that we should embrace and nurture others with compassion, gratitude, and love as an expression of our appreciation for Christ. By doing so, we are able to extend His adoration for all people He created. It’s easy to be kind to those who are nice back to us, but “loving our neighbor” means all people, even those who are tougher to get along with!
