Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, joked on Monday that he is the pop star’s most beloved Jew after Jesus.

“Im still your favorite jew after JC : ),” Braun posted on Twitter, in a message addressed to the Boyfriend singer and New York City Pastor Carl Lentz.

The post came in response to Bieber’s surprise Twitter release of a new track entitled We Were Born for This. The singer followed up shortly thereafter with a link to a 1 hour YouTube video of a  sermon by Lentz entitled I Was Born For This, possibly an inspiration for the song.

“Love the positivity u both bring to the world,” Braun also tweeted at Bieber and the pastor.
