I thought I’d offer you some insights on 2 parables – Good Samaritan and the Rich Fool. We’ve been preaching through the Travel Narrative in Luke.
It’s been great to slow down and take in the view as we go through this wonderful Gospel. Simon, Costa & I have been sharing the preaching load through the series. I got to preach on the rather familiar passage of the Good Samaritan and Rich Fool. It is fascinating to look at them in their context and see what comes before and what follows.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan or How to Mess with the Head of a Legalist – Luke 10:25-41
