Colossians 3:11
This word, being associated with the term “barbarian,” signifies a most uncultivated person (Col. 3:1111Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. (Colossians 3:11)). Happily such a one has the same reception as the most cultivated; such is the grace of God. “In Christ Jesus” all distinctions are lost. As a race, the Scythians were located north of the Caspian and Black Seas. They were esteemed by the ancients as very low in intelligence and culture.
