Dimitris Karavasilis was born and grew up in Imvros, Turkey. He attended the Turkish primary school, while at the same time secretly learning the basic Greek language. Forced to emigrate, he settled in Greece. He went on to study both Theology and Greek Literature at the University of Athens, where he also attended post-graduate classes in the field of Comparative Paedagogics. He has been a radio producer at the local ecclesiastical radio station of the Metropolis of Pereus for 23 years. He still teaches religion and ethics at the High School level.
As Jesus was preaching at the entrance of the ancient town of Jericho, he interrupted his preaching and offered healing to a blind man who was desperately asking for it, while the others were trying to quiet him. So who was really blind?
Ο Χριστός στην είσοδο της πόλης της Ιεριχούς διακόπτει το κύρηγμά του προκειμένου να ακούσει την έκκληση και θα προσφέρει θεραπεία σ’ ένα τυφλό, τον οποίον οι υπόλοιποι προσπαθούσαν να κάνουν να σωπάσει. Άραγε στην περίπτωση αυτή ποιος έβλεπε και ποιος ήταν τυφλός;
