The Gospel crosses nationalities, ethnicities and cultures.
In the story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, was God’s act of coming down and scattering the people a curse or a blessing?
God values unity in diversity and variety, not uniformity. Throughout the Bible, God opposes empires, which eventually fall apart or are scattered.
In Genesis 12, a people group emerges that seems to be the start of an empire. God instructs Abram to leave his empire behind and move.
Micah 4 presents a vision of what the kingdom would look like across nations.
The Great Compassion in Matthew 28 calls us to cross boundaries: ethnic, cultural, and status-related.
In Acts 2, the events of the Tower of Babel are reversed.
