Story Behind the Art

In this parable of compassion, the Good Samaritan is both a pattern of Christ, who administers to all that have fallen, and is an example for all those who seek to be a true disciple of Christ.  As His followers, we are called to “Go and do thou likewise,” considering all people as our neighbor, coming to the aid of every wounded and weary soul we find along our Jericho road.  In the painting, the figure of the man who fell among thieves is reminiscent of Christ’s figure on the cross, and thus is a reminder of Christ’s teaching that “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40). - Joseph Brickey
