comment Is Jesus the Good Samaritan?
@Schuh An allegory is a type of analogy. So if someone were to demonstrate that the parable were an allegory that would answer my question. But there are other types of analogy besides full blown allegory. For instance, The Lion King is not an allegory, but it seems pretty provable that Simba intentionally corresponds to the character of Hamlet in the eponymous play.

comment Is Jesus the Good Samaritan?
@Schuh I might not be clear in my question. Of course people can willy-nilly create whatever analogical correspondences they would like. I'm asking whether Luke intends the parable to be understood at a level beyond the merely ethical in relation to the characters of his broader narrative and if so, whether one of the characters in the parable is particularly supposed to draw comparison to Jesus.

comment Septuagintal Greek in the Lukan Infancy Narratives
@Susan Looking at one quote I had in mind, the author admits a "rough analogy" would be "suddenly launching into a 'King James' style of English." Good find on that study!
