Was Jesus a Racist?

Was Jesus a Racist?


“What? How can you say Jesus was racist?”, you may ask. Jesus’ humanity shines through in our gospel story for today, Matthew 15:10-28, as he shuns an indigenous Canaanite woman, calling her a dog, whereupon she challenges him and his eyes are opened: Jesus confronts his racism and becomes an anti-racist. How can we as Crossroads United Church, a predominantly white congregation in the midst of a very diverse community, confront our own inherent racism? Following Jesus’ lead, how can we become the anti-racists God calls us to be?
