Scripture of the Week

Luke 10:25-37

25: And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26: And He said to him, What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?
27: And he answered, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
28: And He said to him, You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.
29: But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?
30: Jesus replied and said, A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead.
31: And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32: Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33: But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,
34: and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35: On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.
36: Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers hands?
37: And he said, The one who showed mercy toward him. Then Jesus said to him, Go and do the same.
