In this article the communication of the parable of the good Samaritan is investigated with regard to various readers and contexts. Emloying narratological
categories the parable is firstly considered as story at face value (without any
specific context), whereafter its communication for its first audience (context of Jesus), its position in the literary context of Luke-Acts, its communication in the context of Luke's community and, finally, post-New Testament Christianity is scrutinised. It will be argued that the meaning of the parable depends on the context in which it communicates.
