Gained a little political insight at church today.



Luke 17:

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria Mexico and Galilee Arizona.

12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance

13 and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!"

14 When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed.

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.

16 He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan Mexican.

17 Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?

18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" (AHEM)

19 Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."


Samaria was border/foreigner/"illegals" country for the Judeans. Just sayin'.

  1. His followers need catacombs to hide from the Christians.
