    Jesus – a Jew – stayed with the Samaritans for two days. Most likely eating. And eating unclean food among an unclean people group.

    I think it is very reasonable that He would, if alive now, be drinking wine with the rich that sought his advice, and beer with the dock worker that listened to him.

    He would take a puff of weed among those so inclined to hear his parables, and drink coffee with the poets as they came to hear his poetry.

    Jesus just was so interested in people… with so much love…. he truly became like the culture.

    Oh… so did one of his followers, a man named Paul:

    “And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

    “To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

    To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” [I Cor 9]
