Subject/Title of Window: The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Brief Description of Subject: This two lancet epistle side window consists of four scenes from the Parable of the Good Samaritan separated by geometrical and floral decorations. This parable is found in Luke 10:23 - 37. All quotes from the NKJV Bible.
A lawyer tested Jesus with, " 'What shall I do to inherit eternal life?' " I know the law says " 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself', " but who is my neighbor? Jesus answered him with this parable.
Bottom Left Scene: "A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho [a notoriously dangerous road], and fell among thieves."
Top Left Scene: The "thieves, stripped him of his clothing, wounded him and departed, leaving him half dead." First a priest and then a Levite [member of the priestly class] saw him lying by the road and "passed by on the other side,"
Bottom Right Scene: "But a certain Samaritan [Jews and Samaritans, though both followed the Torah, had parted ways and became enemies] ... when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine."
Top Right Scene: "And he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him."
And Jesus said, " 'So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him?' And he said, 'He who showed mercy on him.' Then Jesus said to him, 'Go and do likewise.' "
Lexan protection for this window was installed in 1989 by the Shenandoah Studios of Stained Glass Inc. of Front Royal, VA.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
