Who is my neighbour?
Module 1: The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Our spiritual tradition has its genesis in a story Jesus told about a man travelling along a winding, dusty road from Jerusalem towards Jericho. The Parable of the Good Samaritan, found only in the Gospel of Luke, is one of the most widely recognised of the parables, and the enduring message is one of compassion and love.
