    Uh yes he was very likely white, native lebanese / syrian / israeli people are white even nowadays, even though they can tan quickly and nicely.

    Lol I'm dumbfounded that some ppl here think olive skin isn't white. Take any olive skin person and check out his unexposed skin...it's goning to be pale.

    Well, as noted, the people he descended from (King David, Moses, Adam and Eve, etc) were from areas like Egypt and around Iraq and Iran. And it's worth noting that Israel was, until 1948, part of Palestine. Around the time it formed, a lot of Jewish people from Europe migrated there, making it white in a way it hadn't ever really been before. Still, it isn't totally uncommon for people to consider Middle Eastern and caucasian the same thing, so it's not unfair to say that.

    Still, it's pretty unlikely he was as white as this:

    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    It's not uncommon to consider middle easters as caucasians because they ARE technically caucasian. Of course I know Israel is full of white people from europe now, but the same cannot be said for Lebanon or Syria, and you'll still find plenty of people that - excepting the large amount of sunlight they receive - would be white. Btw, many people from Algeria, Libya, Egypt etc. quickly become white when unexposed to strong sunlight. I know because both in Italy and France there are many immigrants from those countries, their 2nd gen's skin tone is basically the same as your average native...
    Anyway yes he probably didn't look anything like that, it's just one among many pictorial representations....

    Yes, Jesus was one small part of the tree of life that began about four thousand million years ago.

    And we are one family of life because each one us has an identical structure to our DNA passed from generation to generation and from species to species.

    One might have thought Jesus would mention this to us but we had to wait for, "The Origin of Species", and its confirmation in the gerome, to be told of this most important fact about us and Jesus.
    Jesus was indeed part orchid and chimpanzee, Victor... The presence of banana in him was through ingestion, though, as the picture of our Lord Jesus Christ clearly shows.

    The irony of that, is that God did not even place that curse. It was Noah; and it doesn't even say God ever honored that curse (people probably assumed he did, because the Canaanites played such a negative role later in scripture. But that was just because they remained close by. Otherwise, all other gentile groups were basically similar in religion and morality).

    It was a 15th or so century Italian who supposedly modeled for that. Then, subsequent pictures were modified, like replacing the blond hair with the long brown hair, the less round face, etc.

    But weren't those still people who ultimately migrated down there from Europe, and then mixed in?
    I know the census form used to define all of the people from the whole area as "Caucasian", but Caucasian means the people from the Caucasus mountains, which were the waves of tribes that came down from that regions (The Iranians: Medes, Persians, Scythians; the Greeks: Ionians, Dorians, etc. The Romans: Latins, Etruscans, etc. The Teutons (Germanic): Angles, Saxons, Vandals, Goths, Heruli, etc; and the Celts, Baltics, etc).

    Hebrews and Arabs are a totally different stock. Using the Noah-based table of nations, the Caucasians are Japhetic like the Asians, while the Hebrews and Arabs are Semitic. They may have been lighter than Africans, but they were still "colored".
    Here in NY, where you have strong Jewish areas, you will often see dark Israelis.

    Not only was Jesus white, but very likely a loaf of white bread to boot (cf. "This is my body ...")

    Nah, he was definitely a dude. And a jew. Therefore semitic. Whether that's white or brown is up to... Eugenics or whatever crap.
