During this turbulent and contentious time, many are searching the scriptures and asking the oft-repeated question, “What Would Jesus Do?” Daniel Smith, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Messages of Christ explores this idea by looking at how the Jews labeled and divided people during the time of Jesus. His latest video uses three examples of how Christ treated those whom the Jews saw as different from them. By studying the historical background of life in Israel, we can find similarities to how some people are treated today. We also gain insights as to how Christ would have us treat our fellow brothers and sisters, not with labels and division but with unity and love.
