vaguely feel like the good samaritan is still a thing

Thank you for this observation. I have never heard this before. Yes, Jesus loved everyone, Jews and Gentiles alike. He spent his time among the poor and the shunned: lepers, prostitutes, and adulterers. He is the Samaritan, and he taught us to follow his example.
