God, Self & Other – Luke 30: The Good Samaritan & the (Non-) Limits of God’s Love

The parable of the Good Samaritan is often taught as a morality tale about the importance of compassion (with overtones implying that such acts of generosity are means by which one secures a place in the heavenly afterlife).

But Jesus’s intent goes far deeper! In this episode we examine central command to love and the human temptation to draw boundaries that divide the lovable from the not-so-much. And we discover that God’s embrace knows no bounds.

The text for this episode is Luke 10:25-37 (NRSV).
