The Good Samaritan was the subject of a parable told by Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet, beloved of G*d. In modern North American terms, it might be framed thus:

There was this dude with some business to do, that got mugged on the way there. There he was all bleeding and stuff on the sidewalk, and they even took his clothes. Jerry Falwell saw him and crossed the street to avoid him, and so did all the yuppie neo-conservative twats walking by. But a Pakistani taxi driver saw him and pulled over and helped him crawl into the back seat. He checked the dude into a Holiday Inn, and paid for the night's stay with his frequent flier miles. Then he cleaned him up and put some antibiotic cream on the worst of the dude's wounds, and left a breakfast coupon on the nightstand. Now who would you call the righteous dude here?
