  1. Jesus did not speak about the abolition of slavery, although it existed at that time. The apostles Peter and Paul explicitly allowed it, and the other direct disciples of Jesus Christ did not object to them.

    “Servants, obey your masters with all fear, not only those who are kind and meek, but also those who are severe” (1 Peter 2:18).
    “Servants, obey your masters according to the flesh with fear and trembling, in the simplicity of your heart, as to Christ” (Ephesians 6:5).
    “Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not serving them in the eyes only as men-pleasers, but in simplicity of heart, fearing God” (Colossians 3:22).

  2. I didn't come personally and didn't allow it.
    But the existence of slavery is usually justified by the Old Testament. When Noah planted a vineyard and made wine after the Flood, he got terribly drunk and lay naked. And his son Ham saw his father naked and laughed. (Other interpretations say that he raped him. Or castrated. Or he raped his mother. Or he looked at the genitals of his father and thus selected his potency – a lot of interesting options). For this reason Noah cursed the descendants of Ham, beginning with his son: “Cursed is Canaan; he will be a servant of servants to his brothers “(Gen. 9: 25). There was a tradition to consider Ham as the ancestor of all Africans, which ultimately justified slavery in the Bible.
