I thought that's what it means, but Dictionary.com says that it can also mean
- One's fellow human being: to be generous toward one's less fortunate neighbors.
- A person who shows kindliness or helpfulness toward his or her fellow humans: to be a neighbor to someone in distress.
Basically I was asking Christians why they translated the Hebrew word rhea as "neighbor" given that it means "comrade".
Turns out, the word neighbor in English also has the secondary meaning of "comrade", though I think the main meaning is "he who lives nearby".
So how accurate are these secondary meanings of the word neighbor?
