Newsweek: How White Was Jesus?
Dec. 9, 2006 - Shopping for nativity scenes? At Macy’s you have two options to choose from: "The Vatican Edition" and "The Byzantine Edition." The first comes with a set of white figurines, including a red-headed Mary, a brown-haired Joseph and a blue-eyed baby Jesus. In the second, all three are black, as are the shepherd and three wise men. Both cost $10, and more than likely, both are historically inaccurate.

While we can never be exactly sure of what Jesus, Mary and Joseph actually looked like, we know they were not fair-skinned, flaxen-haired Europeans. And, though an emerging fringe of historians would argue otherwise, it’s fairly certain they weren’t black Africans. In all likelihood, what they were was something in between: olive-skinned, dark-featured Semitic Jews living in Israel. Yet depictions of them as such are exceedingly rare compared to the countless number of images that have ...

I thought it a good line. Please note, he is coming as both Savior and Judge.

GG, yopu already said that once, we get the point, do you? Read my previous post again. If Jesus isn't your Savior, He's coming as your judge

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev. 19
This is the only Jesus we need to be concerned about now

This item of "news" is a very old one. It gets rehashed from time to time and isn't relevant to anything.

What a strange article this is and no doubt designed to create division.
As someone who has spent approx 18 years living in Asia, also my native British Isles, also the USA, and has African friends and therefore a great variety of brothers and sisters in Christ, this appears to be a goad to and of importance only to "racists" of whatever colour.
The one thing I'm reasonably sure of is that Jesus was not Irish. This is of absolutely no importance to me.

This article is incorrect in its assumption that Jesus was some olive-skinned, dark featured Jew. I believe that history, true history, shows that the original people of that area were very similar to their Egyptian brothers in the south. History also shows that the Egyptian people were black and the Bible even says that Joseph (Jacobs son) passed as an Egyptian when he was in Egypt during the famine. So much so that his brothers did not recognize him. And I submit to you that the differences at that time were cultural. Yes we definitely no that He (Jesus) was not white, but this assumption is not conclusive when it comes to whether or not He was black. Why is it still so hard to believe that Jesus may have been black, when for years American Christians have believed an obvious false hood that He was white?

Now this is puzzeling. When it's time to bash the name Jesus, there is only one. But when faith is involved, O how many Jesus's are created!!

I thought you were dead Osama? Haven't seen you in awhile. Your masters stopped putting out the fake videos and have resorted to mere audio, but that's not working out too well either.

"And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:" 2 Thessalonians 2:8

When Christ returns be certain he's going to be very bright.

comment:Numbers 12:1-3 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

I am not sure what you are saying here by quoting this verse, but Moses wife was not 'black' she was a descendant of Cush and dwelt in *Midian(#4080. Her father was a Midianite priest. He was a descendant of Abrahm:

*Midian(#4080)descendant of Abramham

Exodus 2:16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

Exodus 2:20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.
Exodus 2:21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the *Ethiopian(#3569) woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

*Ethiopian #3569 from #3568, a descendant of Cush.

from #3568 Kuwsh koosh probably of foreign origin; Cush (or Ethiopia), the name of a son of Ham, and of his territory; also of an Israelite:--Chush, Cush, Ethiopia.

'Adam' means 'able to show red in the face', meaning to blush. Fair skinned people blush. 1Sam 17:42 says David was fair skinned and of a ruddy (reddish) complexion (red haired). Moses was described as exceedingly fair (Acts 7:20). Nonbiblical accounts (like the writings of Pilate) say Jesus had blondish hair and blue eyes. What people have these traits? White Europeans. We are physical Israelites.

In response to Jessica from Canada, the Geneva Bible with footnotes by Beza, a reformation theologian, has this to say "Zipporah Moses' wife was a Midianite, and because Midian bordered on Ethiopia, it is sometimes in the Scriptures comprehended under this name"

You are quite correct, Vic.

This denying that God can tell who is a Jew or not, goes against the idea the place of Israel has in God's plan. The following to articles will cover that.

I agree with you there Osama. The Jews of today are not real Jews either spirtually or racially. They are Eastern Europeans of the synagogue of Satan. Jesus without a doubt looked alot more like Bin Laden than a Ken barbie doll.

Not that I would be one to claim to be near as enlightned as Osama, Jewish mixing with others does not negate them being Jews. There was intermarrage by Jews before Jesus was born. Ruth was one of Jesus' ancestors. I believe she was a Moabess. Not all Jews rejected their Messiah, and I suggest a closer study of Romans 11 and the history of the region as a start.

From my observation, their is more boot licking of Arabs by American pols than Jews. Jews have no oil. So perhaps it is Arabs who run our country?

Jesus looked Jewish.

Osama, oh, no doubt their are many pure Jews left as far as being semitic, but anyway, whatever their mixture is, they are a great asset to our country!

This all goes to show the Jews are some backward racist group.

They also don't support slavery like Islam does.

Numbers 12:1-3 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it. (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

Matthew 27:11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.”

1 Corinthians 10:32 Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God,

1 Corinthians 9:20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law;

John 11:45 Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him.

John 12:10-11 But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.

Romans 11:16-18 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

Romans 10:12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
