Parables: The Good Samaritian
One of the most famous parables of Jesus is known as ‘The Good Samaritan’.
Samaritans were a group of people living next door to the Jews. (The Jews were the first people to hear Jesus’ story.) The Jews and the Samaritans were enemies and avoided each other at all costs. Jesus told this parable in response to the question, ‘Who is my neighbour – or the people I should care about?’.
