This week we tackle the familiar parable of the Good Samaritan. Do you know who your neighbor is?
The Good Samaritan
We’ve all probably heard the story of the Good Samaritan given by Jesus. Today we will dive into the cultural and historic situations which led to the discussion. We will address the question Jesus was posed which led to the story and how it relates to the Shema or what we often call, “the Greatest Commands”.
What were the reasons the lawyer posed the questions? Where and what was this road Jesus spoke of? Who were the famous players and what is a Samaritan anyway?
We’ll address all of these questions and more as we examine how the parable still applies to us in our modern day Christian lives today.
