Luke 10:35-37 (NLT)
35 [Jesus continued] “The next day he [The Samaritan] handed the innkeeper two silver coins,  telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here.’
36 “Now which of these three would you say was a neighbour to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked.
37 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.”
Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”
Greek, two denarii. A denarius was equivalent to a labourers full day’s wage.
TIME OF DAY:
Morning, the next day.
Harsh, strong desert lighting. I have used warm colours on the colour wheel (yellow & oranges) as the dominant hues used in this scene. I have used cool blues & violets in the shadow areas to contrast with the warm colours of the harsh desert sunlight. Short shadows indicate that the sun is overhead.
Samaritan & his donkey, Hebrew victim, Inn keeper.
In the original version I made the inn keeper female, but I noticed that the Bible text refers to “him”, so I needed to make the inn keeper male instead.
There are two versions of this scene:
01) (Previous page) Luke 10 – Parable of the good Samaritan SET01 – Scene 05 – Parting.
The original drawing, which has rather grey/brown tones.
02) (This page) Luke 10 – Parable of the good Samaritan SET02 – Scene 05 – Parting.
The “new” (2016) drawing, which has brighter reds, oranges & yellow tones.
As you may notice from the titles above, there are two complete sets of the 5 scenes that comprise the story of the good Samaritan. The principle difference between them is colour: SET 01 is the original series of drawings, which have rather grey/brown tones, whilst SET 02 has brighter reds, oranges & yellows throughout the series of cartoons.
