  •  What did he teach (0+ / 0-)

    about slavery?

    •  Obey Your Earthly Masters (0+ / 0-)
      Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.

      Colossians 3:22

      That's Paul of course.  But as he's Christ's number one man with a pen, it's as good as Jesus' own words.
    •  Actually he said very little (0+ / 0-)

      As mentioned brow others spoke on the issue but Christ himself did not. And although Paul wrote the comment below, he also preached that slaves were equal in the eyes of the Lord:

      1 Corinthians 12:13: For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

      Galatians 3:28: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

      Colossians 3:11: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

      And of course we do have Christ himself teaching that as well.
