“At the time Jesus lived, the Jewish people saw the world divided into two categories of people – themselves and everyone else. A Jewish person then regarded foreigners (known as Gentiles) as morally unclean and more profoundly, spiritually lost. For, to the Jewish people, they themselves were God’s chosen, and Gentiles, or all others, were not.”
A sermon from Revd Canon Paul-Gordon Chandler, delivered on the Tenth Sunday after Trinity.
