It is easy to be good to those who treat us well. The question is, Is it possible to be good to those we perceive as their enemies? In this course, we are going to study Jesus' response to the question "who is my neighbor?". Jesus answered the man asking him by telling a very compelling parable called "The Parable of the Good Samaritan". We will speak about the historical enmity between the Jews and the Samaritans and try to find our selves in this parable. When we complete our course we will discover the depth of Jesus' teachings when it comes to how we should treat each other especially those who are totally different than us.
My name is Fady, a native Arabic speaker and teacher. I have been teaching Christian theology for 17 years and Arabic for 10 years. I currently teach both Modern Standard Arabic and Levantine in an institute in GA and I’d love to help you gain fluency in Arabic!
I spoke Arabic since birth and I published my Arabic poetry when I was still in my 11th grade. I love the Arabic language because of its beauty and elegance. I started teaching Arabic at the Westminster Institute and currently teaching at Academia Language School.
My philosophy is that students learn best when what they study is meaningful to them. Don’t worry, you can start wherever you are.
