    The concept of race was not invented until more than 1,000 years later.

    So: no, at that time Jesus was not the least bit concerned with the concept.

    Nope. "For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.…"  (Gal. 3:28)

    I think people were important to Jesus. I think he looked beyond the race like we all should do, just like he ignored peoples back grounds or social standing.

    No, but race was recognized as important to people at that time.
