The Good People Smuggler
This year I've been leading a Bible study on Luke's gospel and tonight the question was raised; what would the content of Jesus' parables be today? I was intrigued by this, particularly in relation to the well-known parable of The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). The power of this story has been lost over time because we've become sanitised to its shock value. This is particularly in relation to "who is the hero?" A Samaritan would have been the least expected person to demonstrate love to his neighbour, at least as far as the expert in the law would have been concerned. So, I've had a go at retelling this story for today. I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
