    I find John 4:9 explains that Jews did Not have dealing with Samaritans.
    Luke 9:54 compares from 2 Kings 1:10.
    It was Not yet time for the preaching campaign among the Samaritans - Acts of the Apostles 8:14; Acts of the Apostles 8:25.
    Remember the Jews were given the first opportunity to follow Christ, then afterwards the Samaritan, and lastly the people of Gentile nations.
    That one particular village of Luke 9:53 simply turned Jesus away because he was a Jew.
    So, the disciples may have misunderstood at this point and referred back to 2 Kings 1:10.
    But as Luke 9:55 informs us that Jesus 'rebuked' his disciples, and in verse 56 they simply went to a different village.
    That different village could have been another Samaritan village.
    And like us, the disciples could have wrongly cursed others in their hearts - Ecclesiastes 7:22; James 3:2; James 3:8-9
    So, Jesus was showing that one's background in itself does Not make a person an enemy, so Not get mad.
    And being quick anger is being foolish - Proverbs 14:17 - especially when over reacting.
    Seems that like Jesus those disciples should have just ignored the behavior of the people in the first village.

    We used to have a fairly active JW crowd here.

    Their overlords one day commanded them by decree ordering them to not mingle anymore with the heathens.

    And boy oh boy, they swiftly left in masse as obedient as can be.

    It was weird and creepy when they left like that at the snap of the fingers.

    There were threads made when it happened and probably is still in the archives somewhere.
