Home — Jesus Would Welcome The Refugees

Published: April, 2016.

Jesus would extend hospitality to the refugees and help the dying people.

With all the people coming from various countries as refugees we should have the words in the bible in the back of our minds. The Bible says we should help and threat them with dignity regardless of race or religion.

"Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.", Romans (12:13)

The act of helping the people that are refugees can draw many similarities to The Parable of the Good Samaritan that was told by Jesus.

The parable of the Good Samaritan is a parable told by Jesus and is mentioned in only one of the gospels of the New Testament. According to the Gospel of Luke (10:29–37) a traveller who may or may not have been a Jew is stripped of clothing, beaten, and left half dead along the road. First a priest and then a Levite come by, but both avoid the man. Finally, a Samaritan comes by. Samaritans and Jews generally despised each other, but the Samaritan helps the injured man. Jesus is described as telling the parable in response to a question regarding the identity of the "neighbour", whom Leviticus 19:18 says should be loved.
