The parable of the good Samaritan taught to us by Jesus Christ demonstrates how to be a good neighbor. Jesus told the story when asked, “And who is my neighbor?” The biblical story talks about a traveler stripped of his clothes, beaten to death and left alongside the road. A priest came by, then a Levite. Both avoided the man. Then a Samaritan passed by. Jews and Samaritans hated each other, but the Samaritan helped the injured man, and this is the story that inspired Jacob Crocker of St Louis.
