This study addresses in turn specific scriptural, economic, and social contexts for Luke's parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-35). Reference to 2 Chron. 28:15, to contemporary Samaritan economic activity (specifically, oil and wine production), and especially to contemporary conventions of dress furthers our understanding of how the literary and narrative world of the parable relates to the literal and social world of Roman Palestine. Critical categories formulated by Russian literary theorist Mikhail Bakhtin assist in clarifying the function of these references both within the narrative and for subsequent readers of Luke's text.
