Before Columbus had even set foot in America, medieval Europe and the Islamic Middle East already had a long history in trading and exploiting slaves. An important branch of the slave trade involved buying captives from the shores of the Black Sea and trafficking them through the Mediterranean to the commercial cities of Italy or to Egypt, where many of them became slave soldiers or even rulers (called "Mamluks"). We discuss the history of the trade, who these thousands of slaves were and what became of them with Hannah Barker of Arizona State University, author of "That Most Precious Merchandise: The Mediterranean Trade in Black Sea Slaves, 1260-1500."

with Jyoti Balachandran hosted by Shireen Hamza | How did Sufis shape the identity of Gujarat, a region in northwest India? Gujarat is best known for its ancient port cities and its connectivity to the broader Indian Ocean world. It is also the site of some of the oldest Muslim settlements in the Indian subcontinent. In this interview, Jyoti Balachandran traces the way Sufi saints and communities settled the region in the fifteenth century, with lasting impacts for Gujarat's regional identity. Taking us on a tour of the vast Sarkhej tomb complex outside Ahmedabad where Sufis and Sultans are buried side by side, and through a variety of historical texts from the Sultanate to the Mughal periods, Balachandran explores the many layers of this story of Muslim belonging. « Click for More »

In the medieval world, January 1 wasn't actually New Year's Day (that was March 25), but the anniversary of Jesus's circumcision (according to the church). In fact, unlike many Christmas traditions, there's very little in the way of New Years traditions we still do today that have medieval origins. Nevertheless, this was still a time of feasts, parties, and the medieval equivalent of the Black Friday sales (think less angry queues and more nobility buying themselves fancy swords and jewel encrusted model ships). In this special episode, Matt Lewis explains what medieval society got up to around this time of year, and why medieval new year was actually March 25.

Slideshow for this message is available Welcome this morning. We just finished up our advent series, unto us a life is given. What a wonderful Christmas season! Introduction I'm truly grateful to God for the inexpressible gift of life in his Son, Jesus Christ. Well today is the last Sunday of 2021. And we are going to crack open the door of 2022 by introducing our church theme. Every year the elders have a retreat where we go away and pray and we brainstorm about the culture's problems, what needs to be improved in the church, and where we need to grow as a church. And in that process we select a church theme that we hope will provide extra focus where we need it. Now in our brainstorming exercise when it came to the part about identifying our culture's problems, we found it very easy to make a long list. We are certainly fractured as a society and whether we are more fractured today that we have been in the past is hard to quantify, but one thing is certain. We are far more anxious about it than we have been in any other point of my lifetime. As that anxiety extends into the church. A new ugly seems to be upon us. Something very dangerous and very disturbing is happening in the church. The church as a whole is fragmenting because doctrines which have been held precious by the church for hundreds of years are now agreed upon. The church does not agree on God's view of gender roles, marriage and divorce? The church is divided on the issue of same sex marriage. Even issues such as the eternality of hell, the reliability of the Bible, sex before marriage and abortion. But even Christians who are remarkably aligned theologically, and who have worshiped together for years, are fragmenting over issues of social justice, vaccines and politics. On the surface, it seems that they have all ingredients necessary for unity. Yet, they no longer bear with each other. They fight and quarrel. They use destructive language that bites and devours. Relationships that took years to build are torn apart. The resulting wounds from all this verbal slashing leave significant scar tissue of distrust. What's happening? What is the path forward? How can we experience true unity? Unity in Christ This year our theme is ‘Unity in Christ.' What we want to do is to allow the lens of Scripture to focus our attention on what makes for true Christian unity. How is it supposed to work and how should it be experienced. That is the goal. **Next week we are going to hop back into our study of John and we are going to see the theme of unity in spades. Today, as we introduce the theme, we are actually going to turn in our Bible's to Ephesians 2 and 4 which will serve as our anchor text. Paul is going to teach us how to attain unity. It's not through politics. It's not through social reform. It's not through conservative values. It is actually a gift given when we encounter Jesus Christ. So let's discover what Unity in Christ really means. Maybe you remember a time in your life where one of your parents or your teacher looked at some sloppy math homework and said to you, “Man you need to raise your standard.” Most of us probably hear that phrase as the equivalent to raise the bar. Your standard is too low meaning you are satisfied with a low performance. It's a very individual concept. But that's not what the phrase actually means (at least in terms of its origin). It comes from the Medieval era where you had these giant battles with all sorts of confusion and there were flags on poles called standards that were raised to help you find your people. You are unifed with the people beneath that standard. When that standard was lowered, you had no idea who your people were. Was this guy an enemy or a friend? But when the standard was raised, you knew those people beneath that standard are my people. We belong together. We have the same values. We have the same causes. We are fighting the same war. So to raise the standard is to remember who you are. To get your bearings and connect yourself back to your community. Your drifting from the thing that binds you together with your people. It's the opposite of individualistic. That's actually a helpful starting definition of unity. What standard do you stand beneath. Unity describes the condition in which two or more people share the same standard. Most people think of unity as finding people who are like me. That's ridiculous. Nobody is exactly like you. Unity is finding a standard OUTSIDE OF ME, an absolute upon which I can stake my identity. It begins by identifying something OUTSIDE OF ME that has intrinsic value and therefore intrinsic ability to unite diverse people. Now the reason to bring this up is because unity by itself is not a virtue. People can be unified in their shared hatred of someone. That's what war is. War brings together the most unlikely of friends. Luke records that when Jesus was on trial during the passion week that, “Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before this they had been at enmity with each other. (Lk. 23:12 ESV)” The church used to be very unified that black people could not attend the white church. That fulfills the raw requirements of unity (they have a shared standard outside of themselves) but it's not the kind of unity we are after. Calling Christians to unity without defining the standard is actually a nonsensical thought. So the great question becomes, what is the right standard. Now Paul in Ephesians 2 is going to begin here by describing a problem in the Ephesian church. They were using a wrong standard that was splitting the church. You want to talk about division and lack of unity? You want to talk about animosity, hatred and unhealthy division? How about the division between Jew and Gentile! So Paul begins by introducing us to a fault line that existed in their culture. Ephesians 2 He starts out this section talking to Gentiles, that is, those who were born and raised outside Judaism. And the standard being referenced here is circumcision. Now for this scenario to have the proper weight in your thinking you have to understand that for most Romans and Greeks, circumcision was not only unnecessary, but abhorrent. Josephus speaks of Gentiles laughing at the circumcision of Jewish men and Philo writes that Jews were often ridiculed because of it. It's not hard to get into the mind of a Gentile here. Yet for Jews, circumcision was an institution established by God as a symbol of his covenant with Israel. This went clear back to Abraham. So Gentiles mocked the Jews because they were circumcised and Jews mocked the Gentiles because they were not. Circumcision became the standard. Now of course it was right for the Jewish people to circumcise their children on the 8th day. That's what God commanded. What was not right was to disdain the Gentile who was not ethnically Jewish, and to then be treated as an inferior. I refuse to be unified with someone without that sign. That's why this is such a good example. Because the things that divide us as Christians are sometimes differing beliefs about things that God commands. We think to ourselves, I can't believe you aren't applying the Scriptures the way I do. Paul is aware of the way this external sign had developed into an unhealthy standard. Listen how he deals with it. He says, at one time you Gentiles called the uncircumcised were outside the fold of God. Now if he had stopped there every Jew in the room would have been proud of their distinct identity. We are children of Abraham and circumcision is the unifiying symbol of that identity. But the way he says it is shocking. Paul says you Gentiles are called uncircumcised by the so-called circumcised which is made in the flesh by human hands. That sentence would have been very shocking and offensive to a Jew. The offensive part centers on that phrase, “done by human hands." This term would have been instantly recognizable to any Jews familiar with the Greek OT. It was always used in conjunction with the making of idols. That phrase was often used to contrast the living God with mere idols that were "made by human hands." So you can imagine how shocking it would be for Jew to hear the promised sign of the covenant referred to with terminology used in idol manufacturing. And what Paul is doing is not-so-subtly pointing out,”You've made an idol out of circumcision." You've made it a standard instead of Christ. You have the wrong standard. Christian Unity is NEVER a function of the work of our hands. It's never found by focusing in on our performance. It's never found by identifying external similarity. Paul is saying, listen, this is an external. This is the wrong standard for unity. Now let me ask you, do we have these false standards? These rallying points that ultimately divide us? You bet we do. In 2020 and 2021 in this church there have been divisions over the choice to vaccinate and mask usage. That's an incorrect standard for unity. In this church there is prejudice over a person's origin. Are you from Idaho, Californian, Portland, Seattle. That's the wrong standard for unity. The closer this church approximates a church made up of people from every tongue tribe and nation, the closer we are to the point of the gospel. The church transcends all culture. In this church there is division over school choice. Are you a public school parent, private school, home school? Are you kidding me? Welcome. All. These are dangerous fault lines. They are standards around which many have created barriers. They have no business creating barriers here in the church. No business. So we have just established the point that unity needs a standard. If these are poor standards for unity, then what is the right standard? Look at what Paul says here so beautifully. Speaking of Gentiles he says: To say that a Gentile has been brought near to the covenant, brought near to the commonwealth of Israel and united with Israel would have been a pretty bold, offensive statement. In fact, many would have heard this as downright heretical. In church history we talk a lot about the ecumenical counsels. You have the counsel of Nicea or the counsel of Trent. And at each of these counsels the best minds from the churches in a large region and get together to discuss an issue that is troubling the church. And usually what results from a counsel is some sort of creed or doctrinal statement affirming or denying certain doctrines. And these are major issues. These are issues like: Who is Jesus? What books should be included in the Bible? We are not talking minor doctrines. Well you know what the first counsel was? It was the counsel at Jerusalem. And you want to know what the first major topic up for discussion was? Is it possible for Gentiles to be saved? Acts 15 For us it's a no brainer. Of course. Look at this place. It's filled with Gentiles. We don't give a thought to the relationship between circumcision and salvation. But it was not so easy for a Jew of the day. So engrained in their thinking was that God was working with Israel and through Israel that it would have near impossible for them to think in terms of God opening up his promises of blessing to other ethnic groups. So this is amazing to a Jew. What this should teach us is to be a little more self suspicious. Is that thing we feel is really, really important actually as important as we think it is? Maybe it is important but in a different way. Circumcision was important, but not like they thought. God was exposing their incorrect standard. The standard was not Jewishness. The standard was not circumcision. The standard was Christ. Here's a really key point. We are unifed as Christians, not because we share similarities, or because we have the same values. We are unifed because we have in us the same Spirit. We share in that Spirit. We share a common source of hope. We share a common Lord and Savior. That union comes from outside of us. In the same way that brothers and sisters are unified because they share in the same parents (they share the same DNA), in the same way Christians draw from the same Spirit and are therefore ONE. Later in Ephesians Paul is going to make this point very explicit. Ephesians 4 Here's the thing about raised standards in a battlefield. You can only stand beneath one. You have to pick. You have to have one ultimate allegiance. If I am going to fight to the death, I fight with these people who represent and ultimate love of this one thing. Whatever differences exist among us, we agree on this one thing. What is that one thing? That's what Paul is doing here. He's raising the standard of Jesus Christ.But now in Christ Jesus you have been brought near by the blood of Christ. That's our standard. We have been brought near by the blood of Christ. He himself is our peace. He has reconciled us all to God. Look at what he says next. That person who unites us, is in us. You want to know what this is saying? We draw from the same spiritual resource. What brings the church together is something very different than what brings the world together. Why do we come together at all in society? Why not just lone ranger it. Here's the reason. We are looking for reasons we have value. We are trying to find an identity of worth. That's why sports heroes unite. We have value because of what we can do with a ball. A single basketball player can't make a team but together we can do something awesome. That's why Hollywood unites. We have value because of our talent on the screen. A single actor can't make a good movie but together they can pull off an amazing masterpiece. It's why humans are so in love with causes. We love movements because it scratches that itch we have to have established worth in something larger than ourselves. These are standards to stand beneath that give us value. We are desperately looking for standards that validate us. I can contribute to this cause and say, “I was part of that great thing.” But you know what the gospel does? The gospel unites us beneath a standard of our shared confession of weakness. The Spirit of God unites us in our confession that we are powerless to merit our righteousness. We are all born with this unstoppable desire to find a way where our moral effort can be enough. If we really pull ourselves together, try uber hard, smelt out the impurities, well then you can find righteousness. Jesus says dryly, “No, you can't. It will never work. You're so bad. You've completely failed as a man, husband, father and citizen. As a woman, wife, mother, citizen you've completely failed. In fact, only the death of the Son of God can save you.” And it takes the Spirit of God to humble a person to receive that. To joyfully stand beneath the standard that says, “Beggars unite.” But when that happens, we lay down our arms. We stop strangling one another. We stand there joyfully receiving. We stand with open arms of gratitude. We no longer see ourselves as superior to our brother but a fellow receiver of his grace. And it's not that we just share in the same love of a value. We hare in the same experience of the same God. We are bonded in that way. Enemies will lay down their differences and unite if they have a common object to praise. Perhaps the best example of this is sports. You have two guys who have never met, who for all practical purposes have nothing in common. But you see them giving each other high fives, even hugging. The Spirit fills us with praise for gift of salvation. I love how Paul says it. Galatians 6 Do you see that? The cross gets rid of boasting and replaces it with exultation. The cross of Jesus Christ has broken down the dividing wall. Who can boast if we are all recipients. How can I say I am better than you if we both have received from Christ everything we have? Look at the purpose Paul describes. Now notice what Paul says here. There's a reason you are unified. You stand beneath a standard not just for the sake of unity but for a purpose. And he gives us this most helpful analogy to understand what that purpose is. He says, you are all stones in a building that when stacked together becomes a temple. And the reason this so helpful is that it points out two things very effectively. First it points out how impossible it is to be effective apart from other people - it speaks to community. And secondly it points out the purpose of diversity. It speaks to the importance of community and diversity. Community Let's start with community. Paul is saying you need one another. You can't function unless you come together under the same standard. When you do assemble under the standard, you link together and become like blocks in a temple. There's a synergy where the whole does way more than the sum total of the individual parts. Think about a cinder block used to construct a building. Unless that block is mortared together with other blocks, it's almost useless. Who wants to just carry around cinder blocks. It's value comes when it is part of the whole. Unless it's connected to other blocks, it has almost no function at all. The whole point of a cinder block is to build a building that can shelter you from the cold and keep out the rain. Why are you in a building? Why do we need buildings? Nature will destroy us so we need shelter. Building blocks, unless they're together, can't do that. One building block cannot keep the rain off of you. Just try it. It's supposed to be 8 degrees this week. Just walk through downtown Boise carrying a cinder block. That's not going to do much. You can't curl up around a building block and avoid exposure. Building blocks estranged from each other have no function at all. In fact, think about how ineffective a building is even if just one is missing. You have thousands of blocks together but just one is missing. A lot of air can get through that crack. Think if 10 are missing. You may as well just be outside. The true magic happens when they are all fitted together in unity. Now that gets to the second point. But what about the differences? How do we manage the diversity? Diversity What about diversity. Paul is saying you need one another not in spite of your differences but because of them. You were actually hand crafted by God as a unique individual to be fit into this temple to function in a very specific way. You have a role to play that only you can play in this community. You have a gift. You have a post. You have a position that only you can fill. It's part of your very nature. And if you segment yourself away from the community, you segment yourself away from your very own nature. When you are trying to be a Christian all by yourself, you can't even begin to function the way God intended you to function because you need the differences of other people and other people need the differences of you. Hear this, your existence is meaningless apart from other Christians. You are meant to be together. You are part of a whole. Fitted together into a community. One of you is a keystone that's part of the arch. The person over here serves as the header over the window. This person here is part of the roof. Enough of this lone ranger mentality. You are not here on Sunday to consume. You are here to participate. This is not the church you attend. This is your church, your community, your people, your family. You don't have the option of just pulling yourself out of the structure. And if you do, it will destroy you and everyone else. One of the constant dangers we must guard against is that unity means sameness. We are all so incredibly different. WOW! So different. There is going to be diversity. We are not all the same, we don't all have the same gifts. We are so tempted, so incredibly tempted as humans to say, the problem that we are experiencing right now is that you are different than me. You are not like me. Therefore, in order for us to change you have to become the same as me. NO. Later in chapter 4 Paul is going to change metaphors and compare the various members of the church to various members of a body. To say that we must all be the same in order to experience unity is like saying the entire body needs to become an ear in order to experience unity. What a genius word picture this is to describe what is going on. A hand serves such a different purpose than an ear or a spleen or toe or the skin. They have so little in common. And yet, because they are being nourished by the same blood, are connected to the same head, the common purpose is achieved. When a man runs a race, every part of the body is involved in that endeavor. The red blood cells are carrying O2 as quickly as possible. The lungs are capturing it as fast as possible. The heart is pumping as fast as possible The muscles are contracting as fast as possible. The feet are trying to direct the maximum amount of the muscles energy to forward momentum And the brain is coordinating all this activity. The Bible says that Jesus is our head. He is directing all these gifts toward the common purpose. He is using them all for their different purposes. And now can you tell if it's healthy? If there is love. Application So this means looking for areas of disunity and asking the question, “How can I lovingly use my gift to bring healing and unification?” Rather than comparing our gifts and saying, “I wish I had this or that gift. I wish I was like this or that person." We say, "What gift has God given me and how can I use it to bring together an unite the body of Christ?” Can you see areas where we are not as unified as we ought to be? Can you see segments of this body right here that do not feel as welcomed or included in some way? There are external factors that have a tendency to push us away as a body. It could be age. What does a 65 year old and a 25 year old have in common. Could you use your spiritual gifts to bring unity? Do you have the gift of service or hospitality? Could you host an event that brings the two groups together? Maybe it's not age. Maybe it's socio-economic? How could you use your gifts to bring together the wealthy and the poor? Maybe it's racial. Is there a segment either in our church or other churches that does not feel as included because of race. What gift has God given you that might unite? And the question we should always be asking is, “How can I use the unique way that God has made me to encourage unity in this situation.” Are you an encourager? What words of encouragement could you speak in to the situation? Maybe you are a server or a giver? What could you do to bring together the body of Christ? Conclusion What Paul does is draw their attention to the peace and reconciling power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is something here, Paul says, that can reconcile brothers and sisters, neighbors, friends, classmates, relatives and marriages - EVEN JEW AND GENTILE Our missions statement as a church is, “We exist to glorify God by pointing the affections of all peoples to the all-satisfying person of Jesus Christ.” That describes unity. When the arrows of our individual affections collectively align and point to the person of Jesus Christ, we experience unity. This alignment of affections brings the right kind of reconciliation. We are going to close today by thinking about this quote. This phrase was originally penned by the German theologian of the early seventeenth century, Rupertus Meldenius. The Puritan Richard Baxter wrote about it and it was then adopted as a motto by the Moravian Church of North America and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. It strikes a very good balance that I want to think about this year. It calls for unity on the essential things, the core of truth in our union with Christ. Certainly, there must be a core. Certainly we can agree that there is a difference in the importance of certain doctrines. Now defining that core precisely is not always easy. Historically we have errored in one of two ways. We either embrace what we might call doctrinal minimalism. That's where the church tries to reduce down the number of doctrines to be taught and believed to what we can all accept as important and ignore the rest. Movement in that direction always seems to lose its brakes and eventually nothing distinctive of Christianity remains. That's the one error. The other error is to lock ourselves up in very small groups with maximal agreement on doctrine and morals, and then separate from others and refuse to acknowledge as legitimate those who do not embrace all our distinctives. These small groups pride themselves on purity and denounce and despise those who fall short of that standard. What's the better way. We allow for a category of non-essentials (this would be things that are certainly important, they matter, but if they get it wrong, it doesn't preclude a person from being saved). We don't ignore the non-essentials; rather, we must allow individual believers FREEDOM to follow their consciences under the Word and Spirit. And we treat those brothers and sisters with utmost charity. In everything love. Colossians 3
