Chronicles as a source for Luke
The Chronicler described a community acting together to help their captives in these words: “ . . . and took the captives, and with the spoil they clothed all that were naked among them; they clothed them, gave them sandals, provided them with food and drink, and anointed them; and carrying all the feeble among them on asses, they brought them to their kinsfolk at Jericho, the city of palm trees. Then they returned to Sama'ria.” 2 Chr 28:15
Japhet said that “Nowhere else in the Bible do we find a community of men, motivated by purely humanitarian and religious causes, acting in perfect unity in order to help their captives.”
The Samaritans rendered aid and assistance to their captives because the Judeans were their brothers.
