Jesus heals ten lepers that he meets on the road. Only one of the ten returns to thank Jesus. This leper was considered to be an outsider by Galileans for two reasons. First, leprosy was dreaded, contagious, and legally obligated the afflicted to live apart from society. Second, the leper was a Samaritan, which means that he had a different nationality and religion. Jesus looked beyond the differences between himself and the leper and taught that God’s love is for everyone.
