The parable of the Good Samaritan is simple and well-known. It is as powerful as it is brief. One does not get crucified, however, for preaching that we are to love others as ourselves. In this homily offered on Trinity 13, 2015, Fr. John shows how this familiar story by Jesus was revolutionary in its day and how it redrew the boundaries between the Jewish people and the world. Finally, we learn that the whole world can have a share in the family of God, just as God had originally declared to Abraham.
