The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan sculpture, located on the campus mall, is a graphic representation of the parable told by Jesus in Luke 10:30-37:

"A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half-dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying 'take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.'"

The larger-than-life sculpture represents the philosophy of Loma Linda University and Medical Center "to make man whole."
