The Good Samaritan

Luke 10:30-37
Adapted for Readers Theatre by Carol Montgomery  ©2011

Narrator 1:       A man was going on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho.

Narrator 2:      Suddenly he was attacked by robbers who stripped him     and beat him up, leaving him half dead beside the road.

Narrator 3:  By chance a priest came along the very same road.
He said to himself…

Priest:    Oh my! What’s that by the road up ahead?

Narrator 1:  As he got closer, he saw it was a man.

Chorus:    It’s a man, a man, a horribly dirty, terribly beaten, shocking to look at, MAN!

Priest:    (looks to side and shudders) Oh, how disgusting. I can’t bear to look at him.

Narrator 3:      So the priest walked by…

Narrator 1:      On the OTHER side of the road.
Narrator 2:  A Levite came down the same road and said to himself…

Levite:    Hmmm… (pause) It looks like there’s something by the road up there.

Narrator 1:  When he got closer, he also saw it was a man.

Chorus:    It’s a man, a man, a horribly dirty, terribly beaten, shocking to look at, MAN!  (continued..)
