Inclusion and diversity are some of our culture's most highly prized values. But 2,000 years before this contemporary emphasis, the Bible was already addressing it. This passage helps us understand how the gospel addresses the many "lines of distinction" our world sets up: racial lines, class lines, gender lines, etc. As we explore it, we see how the gospel both affirms our yearning for diversity, and offers a solution that goes infinitely farther than any solution humanity has been able to produce.
