    Default Was Jesus white?

    And if so, does this lend its weight to support the (assumed) purity of white people?

    No, I'm a proper Christian, not some wannabe-Jew.

    Jesus wouldn't have been white.
    Whoops.

    Prolly more olive-colored than white.

    What's "a proper Christian"? Does it mean you don't live under the law?

    The answer to the both the OP and my post are the same. That answer also applies to "is Smiley really a 'proper Christian'"?

    You lost me there. You are referring to Jews, correct? I've never heard the term "proper Christian" used before; not even jokingly. Thus, I inferred he was talking about Jesus being crucified; as a result, Christians no longer live under God's law. Does that make sense? (I'm not sure if I'm saying that correctly.)

    He's saying that Christians (in Europe) aren't circumsized usually...which is why I asked him the question, because I pretty much knew the answer. Circumsizion is generally associated with Jews outside of the United States, and this is actually Biblical.

    So that's what he means.

    Given the list of his supposed descendants and where they were from (between the Tigris and Euphrates, around the area where Turkey meets Iran, Egypt, around Palestine and Israel before the 1940s-50s diaspora made it a lot whiter), it stands to reason he wasn't. I don't know a lot of white people who are both born in and descended from those regions, personally. Generally Middle Eastern looking seems like a safe bet.

    Most Christian nations tend to portray Jesus as looking like their most prominent ethnic background. Very white, very black, whatever. These are of no use as evidence.

    Some years ago there was a sort of study done to try and approximate what Jesus would've looked like given what we know about his geneology in the Bible, the time, and the place. Their final model looked like this:

    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Also, as for the assumed purity of one race over another, I don't think there's anything explicitly about that in the Bible, though some people have tried to use stories like the "curse of Ham" and the Cain and Abel story to imply some races are "cursed" or inferior.
