"A man fell victim to robbers as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight..."
Today Jesus tells us the "Parable of the Good Samaritan" to answer a "teacher" of the Law who asked: "Who is my neighbor?". What kind of question is that! It turns out that those teachers had a list of criteria to certify who was or was not "their neighbor".
-For Jesus the answer is categorical: you are the neighbor of the one who suffers. Therefore, "do in the same way", without hesitation!
