The Burlap Camel – The Story of the 10 Lepers From the Leper’s Point of View

Hi. My name is Ben Yisrael Samerim; but you can call me Sam. And I am a Samaritan. I’m going to tell you about the time I met that man you call the Christ. You may have heard about me from your friend Luke. While Luke might have gotten his facts right, he didn’t really know me. He never knew my name. So I wanted to introduce myself, and tell you the story – how it happened from my point of view.

The Burlap Camel is a fictional first-person story based on the account in scripture of the 10 lepers as recorded in Luke 17:11-19 that was preached by Pastor Phil at our church as a narrative sermon during Sunday worship.
