What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Mormon Video: The Good Samaritan

This depiction of the Good Samaritan really adds depth to the story.  The actor of the Good Samaritan also portrays Jesus, and the actor of the victim also plays the lawyer who questions Jesus.  This story starts by providing insight as to why Jesus taught in parables.  The robbery scene is very brutal.  However, there is one who shows compassion.  I have been thinking about why the actor who portrayed Jesus also portrayed the Good Samaritan.  Could it be pointing to Jesus, who heals our wounds and makes us whole again when we fall among spiritual thieves such as sin, or unkind words or deeds.  I would strongly encourage you to give this movie a view.  It is very well done.  The concluding line, go and do likewise is very well put.
