Many people are surprised to learn how often the Bible talks about ethnic groups and “ethnic relations”. If we look at the Bible in its original languages we find that the Hebrew word goy and the Greek word ethnos were used very frequently. These two words are typically translated into English as “nations” or “Gentiles” but their meaning was very close to our modern understanding of “ethnic groups”. This two page document contains many passages that can teach us about God’s heart for ethnic relations. Some of the verses contain goy or ethnos (the words are highlighted) and others teach principles that have direct implications for ethnic relations. This document can be used as a discussion starter with a small group, leadership team, Bible study, etc.
