This article seeks to accomplish two goals: (1) to correct the common assumption that the OT text being alluded to in Luke 10:28 is Lev 18:5, and (2) to set forth a proposal that Luke is drawing from the Joseph story (Gen 37–50) to supply various raw materials for constructing the Parable of the Good Samaritan. In order to carry out this examination, I will first demonstrate that Gen 42:18, rather than Lev 18:5, is the actual text being alluded to in Luke 10:28. After establishing this, I will then probe the possible function that the Joseph story might have in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30–37).
