Good Samaritan 8

A lawyer said to Jesus: ‘What must I do to inherit eternal life?’
Jesus replied: ‘What is written in the law, how do you read it?’
The lawyer tells him: ‘Love G-d with all your heart and love your neighbour as yourself.’ Jesus tells him this is correct.
But the scholar asks: ‘Who is my neighbour?’
Jesus begins: ‘A man was travelling from Jerusalem to Jericho, when a gang of robbers beat him, took his clothes and left him half-dead.
A priest and a Levite passed the man but didn’t help him.
Then, a Samaritan came, and helped the man. He gave him food, water and clothes, and he tended to his wounds. He took the man to an inn and gave the innkeeper money and told him to look after him.’
Jesus asks: ‘Who was the neighbour to the man, who cared for him?’ The scholar said: ‘The one who helped the man.’ Jesus said: ‘Go and do likewise.’

Lost son 7

A rich man had two sons. The first son asked if he could have his share of the inheritance now, and the father gave it to him
The son squandered all his wealth in a far-off country
He ran out of money and there was a famine in that country, so, as he was so desperate, ate pig's food
When he came to his senses, he realised he should just say to his father that he sinned, but he would work for him to make up for it
His father saw him as he was returning home, and before the son could say what he wanted to say to his father, his father told his servants to give him the best robes, a wash, and to throw a massive party
The second son was furious and said: ‘All these years I have worked for you, and you have never thrown a party for me, but why when my sinning brother returns you throw him a party?’
The father says: ‘Everything I have is yours, but your brother was lost and now is found, so we should celebrate.’
