THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 10 - Verse 35

Verse 35. Two pence. About 27 cents, or 1s. 2d. This may seem a small sum, but we are to remember that that sum was probably ten times as valuable then as now—that is, that it would purchase ten times as much food and the common necessaries of life as the same sum would now. Besides, it is probable that all the man wanted was attention and kindness, and for all these it was the purpose of the Samaritan to pay when he returned.

 

The host. The innkeeper.

{n} "I will repay thee" Pr 19:17; Lu 14:14
