why don't people admit Jesus was black?
I thought Jesus was Hebrew.
There were black hebrews back then, and your a dam fool for not know it.
Did the bible mention anything about jesus wearing a gold chain?
no but it said he capped three white crackers
The bible did mention that jesus was shot nine times, and that he thouroughly enjoyed watermelon, as well as fat asses. I beleive it was in the book of OldeEnglish 40oz:800
I could have sworn he was born as a Hebrew. They weren't black or white yeah yeah yeah. There are black people who have painting of Jesus and make him black. They don't feel comfortable worshiping a white man which is how he's colored in painting for the most part. Sad...very sad indeed.
im not talking paintings. he is what i said he was.
Because White People have accomplished ALOT in the past 2,000 years. Black People have acomplished ZERO in the past 2,000 years. This is proof that Jesus had to WHITE!
first off, grapost you're an idiot! and yes I know Jesus was black, although it really is irrelevent because he died for everyone.
Ummm Palestinians are Arabs that means there BROWN not black mr baggles where do you come up with this crap?
The bible tells us that he was,Olive skinned.
Jesus wasn't black or white, he was born in Bethlehem in Israel.
Don't you know what Israeli's look like?
jesus never died you fools! didn't you get the hints! i am him....now worship me....kiss me...there..
mr. baggles you are an idiot. Show me some proof of him being black. My proof is that the bible depicted him as Jewish- olive skinned, neither white nor black.
if I am an idiot, explain to why the bible depicts him as having bronze skin and wool hair. HUH! HUH! it is clear none of you buffoons have an a clue about the bible, let alone theology. the only thing thats olive-colored is a toasted baggle with butter melting on it. ARE YOU COMPARING JESUS TO A DAM BAGGEL! A BAGGLE!!!
according to them, he was a bagel.
How dare some dumb ignorant black try to tell us jesus was a Nig*er!
IGNORAMASUS: He was neither. White Americans have painted his all up as a blonde blue eyed european looking man. Blacks have painted him to be an Black American...He was neither people. Do your dang research. What is wrong with you people?
Then why do we have communion wafers and wine at mass instead of chicken wings and malt liquor?
Bible clealy states that Moses'wife was black(cush).and if Jesus was indeed black man,I'm sure Bible would have said so.
Jesus probably looked similar to the men of present day Syria / Jordan (present day Israel has lots of European desecdants)
Jesus was Jewish but spoke Aramaic.
guest_7472b,your statement that you are not a racist does not reconcile with your statement (among others) Why cant you just accept the pale white death looking fat see the veins in your skin blue eyed sleeping with animals selves that you are.
Hey guys you know what's kind of funny, watch like one of those channels that always show conflicts in the Middle East, look at one of those you know, guys from that area (not the Coalition Forces) you know those people, well that's the color of Jesus.
jesus is any colo you want him to be he never existed hes a copycat of horus egyptian god
he was as black as a TOASTED BAGEL PEOPLE!
I know couchgnome is the bigist racist on this site. thats why I hate him so much.
You will be cast into the lake of fire for calling jesus a NIGG*R
Are you saying that Jesus had a felony record?
Jesus never raped, robbed, stole, killed, and never spent a day in prison. This proves he was White!
Jesus was a Jew, and jews aren't black. And the drawings of him were done like a thousand years after his death and resurrection so those drawings really dont dipict his race and you also have to consider that Rome was in control at that time and Rome was a white civilization. I don't really care what he looked like because he told for me and the nigga who wrote this
he died for me and the nigga who wrote this
Jesus abolished the notion of racial salvation, so what difference does it make? I wouldn't care if He was green.
Simeon Toko was black
Who cares. Sure he walked the earth and just as sure was a mortal man like any other.
He was black people. You can lie but you can't deny. I bet this makes you racists question your existence doesn't it?
and for you idiot clowns, THERE ARE black jews! In fact Israel has program to transport them from African countries to Israel if they want sanctuary.
Did Jesus have an afro?
Wouldn't it be cool to turn water into malt liquor?
How many whites OR blacks were prancing around the area of Bethelhem? He was Hebrew you idiot! But then again, if you're gonna say black or white Hebrew, I don't know. Why is it, all white people think he's white, and alot of black people think he's black? All the clue I have is, he doesn't underrate minorities, but he doesn't talk in ebonics, and bob his head when he yells, either.
Jesus was a middle eastern Jew .... a Hebrew.
I am your lord, who have the power of a God. Only monkey human beings concern about the color. I am colorless and colorblind to all my believers.
How many black jewish people do you know??
Stop watching Malcom X I know that movie gave you the stupid idea
Why would Jesus look any different than what people look like who come from the same geographical location today?
Didn't Jezus have red hair?
Anyway to solve this argument can't we just compromise and assume that he was a homosexual who loved a deep sun tan
and was really into bondage and S.M.
and called a prostitute his best friend in the world???
Did Jesus ever try to carjack a sheep?
coughgnome, you are going to get me in trouble for busting out laughing at work. carjack a sheep, that was funny!
Jesus was a Black Jew from Ethiopia who spoke Amaraic or something like that.
So yeah Jesus Christ was a darkie.
If you are worried about the color He was then you have missed His whole point. And I'm not even religous.
Semites are caucasian.. this is genetically(descendancy) determined. Even if you go into northern parts of Africa the haplogroups show that many are caucasian. So even Egyptians are white(if you want to term it that). Its called the out of Africa and return to Africa theory. Even some Native American have caucasian haplogroups.
so what who cares. he dead.
it doesn't matter what jesus looked like, because He is God He could have looked like whoever He wanted. But if you want to get technical, He most likely had tanned, brownish skin (not exactly white, and not excatly black) he most likely had brown or black eyes and brown or black hair. look at the average arab and there's your clue. but think about what He did for you, not what he looked like cause black, white, or brown, it doesn't matter.
But what is the evidence that Jesus might be described as a person of colour?
The region in which Jesus lived: the African American Biblical Scholar Cain Hope Felder(4) makes the case that we should see the Middle East of Jesus' day as a kind of eastern extension of Africa, using archaeological and linguistic evidence to demonstrate the interaction between these peoples in these regions.(5)
Jesus' General Ancestry: A key element in the narrative of the Hebrew Bible is the Hebrews' move to, sojourn in and liberation from Egypt. Felder claims that they were a mixed race of Afro-Asiatics. Moses had a Cushite, or Ethiopian wife (Num.12:1); a son of Aaron, the one who begot the priestly line, was Phinehas (Ex.6:25), which in Egyptian means "the Nubian", referring to the area of Sudan or Ethiopia (Jer.38:7).(6)
Jesus' Genealogy - four Afroasiatic women are mentioned in the Genealogy that opens Matthew's Gospel: Rahab. Tamar, Ruth and Bathsheba. (Matt. 1.2-17)
Jesus' Connection with Egypt: in both Christian and non-Christian texts, Jesus is placed in Egypt during his formative years. Celsus, a Jewish critic of Christianity from the second century, reported the tradition that Jesus learnt his magical powers in Egypt (Origen, Contra Celsum, 1.28). And Matthew's Gospel famously reports the holy family's flight to Egypt (Matthew 2) and announces the return with the scriptural "Out of Egypt I have called my son" (Matt. 2.15).
"If the truth be insisted upon, the family stock of Jesus himself was none other than Afroasiatic. His parents probably resembled the typical darker Palestinian, Egyptian or Yemenite of today; many African-Americans would have similar features . . . It may not be going too far to suggest that the "Sweet Lil' Jesus Boy" of the Negro Spiritual is probably most accurately described as an Afro-Asiatic or "a person of color." While the Negro spiritual intones: "We didn't know who you was," it paradoxically reminds many modern Christians that what Jesus actually looked like may come as a surprise.
One must be very careful when jumping to assumptions about His appearance, especially when we consider the only physical description given in the Bible of Jesus:
Just as there were many who were appalled at Him – His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and His form marred beyond human likeness….He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Isaiah 52:14 - 53:1-3
Many Christians become very defensive when their perception of Jesus as the perfect looking human being is shattered by the above passage. The first comment I’ve received in talking about this to other Christians is that this passage in Isaiah must refer to what Jesus looked like after being beaten by the Roman soldiers before and during the crucifixion, not before. However, one must look at Isaiah and read it carefully, no one was going to be attracted to Him by His physical attributes.
Jesus was truly an African!

same reason they dont admit im black, BECAUSE IM NOT
The Fallasha Jew's in Ethiopia do not get recognized by the "White Jews/Orthodox Jewish Church" based on their denial that they could be or have any ancestery to the original Jews. This was broadcast on the HISTORY CHANNEL by scientist within this fielld who conducted DNA tests that proved that the Fallasha Jews ancestery was stronger by a large margin in comparison to the Orthodox Jewish Temple's members throughout the world. The original Jews were black. To deny this is to say that the original Egyptians were white or even Arabic (which someone had mentioned earlier). This example should clarify this entire subject:
Today, here in America we have a melting pot of cultures and backrounds. When one today is recognized as an American to one who is in another country, it's automatically assumed that the person is of European decent and now resides in the U.S. and is classified as being white. Let's look back 1000 years ago, who were the inhabitants of Nothern America? It was the Native Americans. See my point? You cannot make a claim that one is or was a certian race based on who lives in the reigon now. The Nubians and Egyptians were black but aren't seen as being so, they're seen as being "Middle eastern"... Take yourself out of the picture and put it on paper. Egypt IS IN AFRICA. Jesus WAS AN AFRICAN! The middle east is A PART OF AFRICA. The PEOPLE of the land back then were people of Affrican Decent. Part of the reason why he was gated by the Romans (Italians) was because who he claimed to be, the Son of GOD. That's where racism came into paly. They didn't want to believe that the Son of God would be in the form of a black man. Why do you think he was beaten and treated the way he was by the Roman soliders and the Romans who were in attendance. There's a similarity to African Americans who proclaimed that they were MEN and WOMEN and should be given rights like every other American. Hence the Civil right movement and the beating and lynching of inncoent people. It's paralleled. Nevertheless, don't be suprised when you see him. Afterall, even the POPE has a picture of a black Jesus on his desk in his OFFICE (That ought to tell you something.....).
-peace to all
AS far as the white depection of Christ, this came from two seperate sources:
Michael Angelo AND Caesar Borgier Ander whom was the 2nd son of the Pope Alexander of Rome. The images were made in their image, not the image of the one people call Jesus... Sad but true... Research it and cross examine. For those spewing hatered on here, grow up. It's obvious that you're an adolecent, are in denial of the truth or just a racist. No need. I'm sure you wouldn't say any of the racist remarks in my face.... Knock it off and have respect. Let's continue..
