The Parable of the Good Samaritan Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

In the gospel of Luke, Chapter 10, Jesus delivers the parable of the Good Samaritan. This is one of the most famous parables, and therefore, you might think it is one of the most well known. However, I would like to show it to you in a way you’ve probably never seen it before.

Are You Sure You Know Joseph’s Hometown?

So let’s talk about Joseph —  the supposed Father of Jesus (Luke 3:23), betrothed to Mary (Luke 1:27) — Where was he actually from? Nazareth, right? That’s what everybody thinks. He and his high-school sweetheart Mary, who was prego-by-the-Holy-Spirit with ya-boy J.C. got married and then went to the ancient ancestral home of Joseph’s 900-year-old-great-granddaddy…
