    Jesus was white with blue eyes.
    (Cuz that's what he looked like in my picture at Sunday School!)

    Which only shows that he's the miracle of God, because no other Jewish baby ever looks like that.

    With the way we consider the Jesus message in modern culture, much less back then? He has to be smoking that ganja.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Jesus is whatever makes people feel best about themselves.

    Which means that if said people are white, he's gonna be white.

    I remember in white Evangelical circles 10-15 years ago when I heard lots of complaints about black people portraying Jesus as black in plays and art, and "how wrong it was." I mean, the were really HOT under the collar about it, you'd think it was a stoning offense for blaspheming the character of God.

    Yeah, it's sad... since whites have habitually stolen the image of Jesus for decades if not centuries. Recasting a savior in the eyes of the people is a way for them to feel kin to that savior; it doesn't even have to be a historical comment per se, it's just a way to tell a story to say, "this guy understands us and can identify with our tribulations." Just like on 9/11, people the world over were "American" because they empathized with what our nation was going through.

    (Of course, some denoms of Christianity are notorious from not being able to separate allusion from history from myth from whatever else... everything is forced to be literal.)

    It's kind of sad to see people fighting for ownership over someone's image who is realistically supposed to be for "red and yellow, black and white," as simplistic as that sounds. Jesus was Jewish; ergo, he most likely (99.999999%) looked like a Jew of the time. There's not much more to be said about his appearance besides that.

    Jesus wasn't white. But he is white now. Everything and everybody in heaven is white, and the only thing on TV is Ed Sullivan, and nobody has to eat any strange ethnic food. It's the reward given for living a good life.

    I don't think Jesus would have been white like he is portrayed in the catholic artwork. I think he would of been on the darker side and probably a more olive skin tone.
