The Good Samaritan 好撒玛利亚人


有一个律法师,起来试探耶稣说,夫子,我该作什么才可以承受永生。耶稣对他说,律法上写的是什么?你念的是怎样呢?他回答说,你要尽心,尽性,尽力,尽意,爱主你的神。又要爱邻舍如同自己。耶稣说,你回答的是。你这样行,就必得永生。

那人要显明自己有理,就对耶稣说,谁是我的邻舍呢?

耶稣回答说,有一个人从耶路撒冷下耶利哥去,落在强盗手中,他们剥去他的衣裳,把他打个半死,就丢下他走了。偶然有一个祭司,从这条路下来。看见他就从那边过去了。又有一个利未人,来到这地方,看见他,也照样从那边过去了。惟有一个撒玛利亚人,行路来到那里。看见他就动了慈心,上前用油和酒倒在他的伤处,包裹好了,扶他骑上自己的牲口,带到店里去照应他。第二天拿出二钱银子来,交给店主说,你且照应他。此外所费用的,我回来必还你。

你想这三个人,那一个是落在强盗手中的邻舍呢?他说,是怜悯他的。耶稣说,你去照样行吧。
(路加福音 10:25~37 和合本)


思考问题:

  1. 根据这课文,怎样才能承受永生?

  2. 这个律法师是不是真的要知道谁是他的邻舍?

  3. 强盗是怎样对待被他们抢劫的人?

  4. 祭司是怎么样的人?为什么他从那边过去?

  5. 利未人是怎么样的人?为什么他也不帮助被抢的人?

  6. 撒玛利亚又是怎样的人?他怎样帮助这个被抢劫的人?

  7. 你愿意做这故事中的哪一种人?为什么?

And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” 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.” And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.” 

But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

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. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, 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. 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.’ Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?” And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.”

(Luke 10: 25~37, NASB)
