VIII. MAIN BODY:

Luke 10:33 (Amplified Bible)

But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled along, came down to where he was; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity and sympathy [for him],

Luke 10:33 (King James Version)

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

A. Certain Samaritan taking his journey

"But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed,"

A Samaritan giving thanks to a Jew.

Luke 17:16-18 (Amplified Bible)

And he fell prostrate at Jesus’ feet, thanking Him [over and over]. And he was a Samaritan.

Then Jesus asked, Were not [all] ten cleansed? Where are the nine?

Was there no one found to return and to recognize and give thanks and praise to God except this alien?

John 4:9 (Amplified Bible)

The Samaritan woman said to Him, How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan [and a] woman, for a drink?—For the Jews have nothing to do with the Samaritans—

Samaritan doesn't like the Jew and vice-versa

Luke 9:52-53 (Amplified Bible)

And He sent messengers before Him; and they reached and entered a Samaritan village to make [things] ready for Him;

But [the people] would not welcome or receive or accept Him, because His face was [set as if He was] going to Jerusalem.

Samaritan is a an evil word to the Jews.

John 8:48 (Amplified Bible)

The Jews answered Him, Are we not right when we say You are a Samaritan and that You have a demon [that You are under the power of an evil spirit]?

Samaritans are not good in showing compassion but the LORD JESUS CHRIST saw something in them that made Him make Himself as the compassionate or good samaritan. A stranger that will show kindness to any stranger as well.

ILLUSTRATION: I often do this because when the HOLY SPIRIT leads me to share the gospel in a public utility vehicle or in prison or in the hospital, I'll just go ahead and do it for the sake of the LORD JESUS CHRIST and in so doing we are rewarded.
