Deuteronomy 10:18-19

''Yahweh defends the rights of orphans and widows. He cares for foreigners and gives them food and clothing. And you should also care for them, because you were foreigners in Egypt.'' Deuteronomy 10:18-19

This theme of Yahweh defending orphans and widows finds repetition all through the Hebrew Scriptures. It is often interspersed with additions like poor, lepers, strangers, foreigners, crippled, blind, deaf, and so forth. There are over 90 passages making the point here of the need to care for the underclasses of society.

Matthew 20:28

''The Son of Man did not come to be a slave master, but a slave who will give his life to rescue many people.'' Matthew 20:28

It has been almost two thousand years and we still have not figured out that Jesus neither came as the master of slaves, nor to lead us into a similar position. As Christians, we want to hang onto privilege and force others to accept what we have come to believe. We want to utilize the halls of political power as a tool to advance some version of the gospel. We want others to respect our values, priorities, and rituals unchallenged.
