Jews, Samaritans and Jesus – What Controversy?!?!

There is a TON of talk about race lately.

And Jesus had run ins with race as well. He approached these issues differently than most people are doing today. I want to look at one of my favorite stories of Jesus life and that comes out of John 4. This event holds just about everything you need to know about God and worship and Jesus and race and sin and judgment and love.

Almost every news story I read has a racial component. This is sad because we are supposed to see each other as image bearers of God first, and literally everything else second.

Galatians 3:28There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

So how did Jesus handle a tense situation? Listen to the podcast and find out!
