The Example of Jesus

Jesus loved and affirmed his own ethnic identity.

Our Lord lived his life among his people, and defined his earthly mission as specifically nurturing his own ethnic group (Matthew 10 & 15). Jesus did not seek to diversify his ministry or reach beyond the confines of his own people (his apostles were Jewish males).

God placed us within specific ethnic identity groups so we can better serve our communities for him. We should follow Jesus’ example.
