On the next day, when he departed,
he took out TWO DENARII, gave them to the innkeeper,
and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend,
WHEN I COME AGAIN, I will repay you.’
(Luke 10:35)

The early church had an understanding of the parable of the Good Samaritan that today’s church world knows nothing about.  Working through the dark ages, Satan did a GREAT JOB of hiding the REAL truth of God’s Word, and now today Christianity remains mostly in darkness about the truth of salvation and the timing of Christ’s return.  And yet, amazingly, the parable of the Good Samaritan reveals both!

Parable of the Good Samaritan

“Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.  Now by chance a certain priest came down that road.  And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side.  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was.  And when he saw him, he had compassion.  So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ (Luke 10:30-35).


  • “a certain man” = Adam (all mankind)
  • “thieves” = Satan & his demons
  • “Samaritan” = Jesus Christ

In the parable of the Good Samaritan, a certain man falls among thieves who strip him, beat him, and leave him half dead.  Jesus described Satan as a thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy:

“The thief (Satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life” (John 10:10).

In the Garden of Eden, Adam & Eve were not to eat from the tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, or they would die.  Satan, the thief, came along and coerced them into eating from that tree, and he STOLE their happy existence away from them, KILLED them spiritually, and ultimately wanted to DESTROY them in the lake of fire one day, which is the Second Death.  The parable of the Good Samaritan accurately describes this situation, for it says the thieves (Satan) left the man (Adam) half dead. Adam & Eve tasted the first death with one more to experience — the Second Death.  Therefore, they were half dead!  And what happened to Adam & Eve was passed down to all mankind, so we are all half dead.

But then Jesus comes along, the Good Samaritan, and he has compassion on the half dead man.  Over and over again, the Bible tells of Jesus having compassion on us:

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36).

“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” (Matthew 14:14).

“So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.” (Matthew 20:34).

So Jesus picks the man up, puts him on his animal, takes him to an inn, and takes care of him.  This is like what a shepherd would do for his sheep, if they were lost or hurt.  And of course, the Bible says Jesus is our Shepherd, who laid down his life for us:

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” (John 10:11).

It was Jesus’ death on the cross that made eternal LIFE available to us.  Christ’s sinless death is now available to pay our death sentence for the sins we committed.  In this way, Jesus “took care of us” like he did to the half dead man in the parable, seeking to nurse the man back to life again.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

The Timing Prophecy

The next day, Jesus tells the innkeeper he’s leaving, but that he’ll come back.  This represents the fact that Jesus was going to leave earth after his first coming, but that he’ll come back one day:

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:3).

Jesus hands the man two denarii, and tells him he’ll repay him whatever else he owes him when he returns.  In Jesus’ day, one denarii represented an average man’s pay for one day’s work, so two denarii covered TWO days wages:

“Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.” (Matthew 20:2).

So, this seemingly trivial, unimportant, little detail in the parable of the Good Samaritan was actually God confirming that Jesus Christ will return to planet Earth in 2 days after he leaves it!  The two days represent two thousand years, specifically days 5 & 6 from God’s prophetic 7 Day Creation story!  Jesus died/resurrected/ascended during earth’s 4,000 year of existence (AD 28) and he will return 2 days (2,000 years) later, during earth’s 6,000 year (AD 2028).  Isn’t the hidden meaning of God’s Word INCREDIBLE?  So the parable of the Good Samaritan confirms the title God gave me for my book back in AD 2008 … Jesus Christ Will Return to Planet Earth Exactly 2,000 Years After the Year of His Death!  Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
