The following comes from a book called “Unlocking the prophecy code” by Bryan Cutshall. In this book he tells the story of the “Good Samaritan” from an entirely fresh perspective. He defines the characters in this parable in a new and exciting manner. Of course this covers a whole chapter in his book, and I will not be posting all of it, but I am going to post for you the conclusion. I would encourage you to read the Good Samaritan story for yourself; it is found in Luke 10. After you read the actual parable check out the way Bryan interprets it in his book.
Jesus answered and said: “Adam went down from the Paradise of God to Satan’s domain. There Satan stripped him of his clothing, caused him to sin, and departed, leaving Adam spiritually dead and separated from God. Moses came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side because the Law revealed sin but could not remove it. Likewise, Aaron, of the Levitical priesthood, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side because the animal sacrifices could not permanently remove sin and restore Adam’s race back to God. Then Jesus came! He came where he was, because sinful man could not come to Him. And when He saw him, He had compassion. So He went to him and bandaged his spiritual wounds, and poured in the Holy Spirit and His own blood to heal and revive his dead spirit. He placed man’s sins on the cross and established the church to care for him. On the next day, when he departed, He paid the ministers for 2,000 years of labor. He commissioned the ministers by saying, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ So your neighbor is any sinner who is in need of salvation. Go now and save them!”
This description of the familiar story isn’t meant to replace the original intent, but it is a thought provoking, insightful look at the layers of understanding that can be found in the Word of God. Please take your time, and give the Holy Spirit time to open your eyes to this astounding insight into the parable of the Good Samaritan.
