Read this passage from three different viewpoints. First, consider what it is like to be in dire need and to have that need taken care of. What do you do next? Is returning to a normal life a plausible thing to do? Can you imagine yourself doing that?
Second, consider the response of the Samaritan. Consider his response in terms of this Thanksgiving Day? How grateful have you been?
Third, read Jesus' response. Are these rhetorical questions? Or, was he expecting an answer?
