The purpose of this paper is to justify the interpretation of Luke's Mission of the Seventy (10:1-24) and the parable of the Good Samaritan (10:25-37) through a Eucharistic hermeneutic, thereby considering the possibility of reading the parable of the Good Samaritan as an act of social justice which flowed from a Eucharistic meal occurring in the pericope of the Mission of the Seventy. This paper focuses on the Lukan connection between Eucharist and justice and concludes in a modern application.
