Description

Who were the Samaritans? Who are they today?

The Samaritans are a small people that claims to descend from the ancient Israelites — from the biblical Kingdom of Israel — and have continued the Northern Israelite lineage and heritage. The Samaritans are associated with one of the most famous New Testament parables, known as "The Good Samaritan". It recounts the incident of a Samaritan man who went out to aid a roadside victim who had been beaten, robbed and left to die near Jericho. The Gospels also tell of Jesus' encounter with a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well.

Like Jews, Samaritans base their religion on the Torah. Their holy site is at Mount Gerizim, near Shechem, in the heart of the region of Samaria rather than in Jerusalem. The Samaritans are one of the oldest cultures still in existence from ancient times. Throughout the generations, there has been an unbroken chain of high priests from the time of Aaron through today.

Understanding the Israelite-Samaritans is a richly illustrated narrative of a unique community surviving despite the odds since biblical times.
