I doubt that there is any more well-known parable than the Parable of the Good Samaritan.  It has been used, unfortunately, in anti-Jewish polemic over the centuries.  But this is a misuse of the parable.

One way of looking at the parable is to see this as Jesus reminding his listeners that focus, while a good thing, can lead us to lose sight of the issues and situations on the periphery of our vision.  They are also matters of concern.
