Story of the Good Samaritan is one of the most well-known and beautiful parables of Jesus. This parable is found only in the Gospel of Luke. It is located within the Travel Narrative (Lk 9:51-19:27). More specifically, it follows the discussion concerning salvation between Jesus and the lawyer in Lk 10:25-29. For the acquirement of salvation it is indispensable to love God and neighbor (Lk 10:27). The command to love God and to love one's neighbor as oneself is presented as uniform act. The required absolute love God takes a place in a special way in the love neighbor, which is illustrated by the parable. The priest and a Levite provide an example of people who neglect one who obviously needs help. On their behavior is emphasized that there is no true service to God, which does not display also in the service to the neighbor (cfr. Mk 12,33b). On the other side the example of Samaritan who helps the man in need enlightens the love for the neighbor. Finally the parable explains that the neighbor, whom is necessary to display love, is anyone who is in need.
