Education in Faith


Learning Intention: I can reflect on the message about choices that Jesus gives in scripture.

Success Criteria:

I know I have been successful if I have identified the choices made in the parable of the Good Samaritan.


A parable is a story that is told to teach a lesson. Jesus told parables to teach others about God and he challenged his followers to see their lives in a different way.

He inspired them to think about the choices that they made it their everyday lives.

One of the most well known is the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
