Jesus and Social Status, with Pastor Peter James

This week we're continuing our sermons series on Acts. We're looking at Acts chapter 16 and the story of three conversions: of Lydia, of a possessed slave woman, and of a Roman jailer. Looking at these three people there is a clear parallel between them and the social ladder of Roman society. We have Lydia, a wealthy trader of purple cloth and part of the Patricians, a Roman jailer, a member of the middle class or Plebeians, and a slave woman, the lowest of low in social standing. Jesus looks past all of that though and takes you in regardless of wealth, societal standing, race or background.
