The Sunday gospel lectionary reading for Trinity 4 in Year C is Luke 10.25-37, most commonly known as the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Because of its familiarity, many people reduce the point of this text to mere social action, telling people what they ‘ought’ to do. But there is much more to this passage, and some interesting surprises.
James and Ian explore the text, the nature of these surprises, and how this issues can help to shape our preaching in a fresh way.
