Often the stained glass in churches or chapels depicts a story from the Hebrew or Christian scriptures. Here is a window in the methodist chapel at Heptonstall, Yorkshire. It portrays the good Samaritan. The text under the picture says 'He had compassion on him'.
You might like to read the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke Chapter Ten verses 30-37.
