In this exposition, New Testament scholar Emerson Powery explores the timeless relevance of the parable of the good Samaritan for today's church. He highlights how mercy is inherently linked to faith, emphasizing Jesus's powerful portrayal of an "enemy" as the story's hero. Powery examines various interpretations of the parable, situates it within the theology of the Gospel of Luke, and applies its lessons to contemporary issues. This book from the Touchstone Texts series, edited by Stephen B. Chapman of Duke Divinity School, encourages readers to reflect on the ethical implications of the parable in their own lives.
