My neighbour


You will remember that the Ten Commandments teach us two main things: our duty to God and our duty to our neighbour.  You will, perhaps, ask, “And who is my neighbour?”  Well, that is the very question that a Jew asked Jesus.  Now Jesus very rarely gave a direct answer to a direct question.  He liked to help people think out the answer for themselves, and so, on this occasion, he told the man a story, the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
