Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3: 11
I I would suggest a reading of the entire chapter of Colossians, 3.
It is just amazing, as Paul outlines what we are to put away and what we are to embrace and what holds that embrace together is love.
However, I want to call your attention to the above passage because when it was written, nearly 2000 years it was simply astonishingly revolutionary.
Paul is pointing our to us that when we come to Messiah everything changes. Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, is the great unifier. Before He came the Jews were separated from the Gentiles—everyone who wasn’t Jewish—and were forbidden to even eat with them under the rules and prohibitions set by the Pharisee’s interpretation of the Mosaic law.
