In our increasingly mobile and fragmented society, how do we instill the values of community and family into the children we care for and love? The biblical parable of the Good Samaritan, Who Is My Neighbor? can help you explain the values that Jesus desired for His followers.

Illustrator Tim Ladwig displays the emotions of each character so children see the contrast of the priest and Levite’s cold hearts against the compassion of the Samaritan. Those universal emotions are brought to life in characters who actually look Middle Eastern and with detailed imagery and costuming that accurately reflect the time period of the New Testament. Paired with text from the New International Version of Scripture, the picture narrative helps children understand the commandment, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” An application page encourages meaningful discussion for a life rooted in Christian values.

The Stories Jesus Told series beautifully illustrates biblical truths, inviting children to consider how those truths can be applied in their own lives. Who Is My Neighbor? from Luke 10:25–37.
