    From the first time Christian children settle into Sunday school classrooms, an image of Jesus Christ is etched into their minds. In North America he is most often depicted as being taller than his disciples, lean, with long, flowing, light brown hair, fair skin and light-colored eyes. Familiar though this image may be, it is inherently flawed. A person with these features and physical bearing would have looked very different from everyone else in the region where Jesus lived and ministered. Surely the authors of the Bible would have mentioned so stark a contrast.

    Jesus was a Jew. I don't think Jews are like African Americans.

    It is so far stretched imagination.
    If you want to be true to God and Jesus, abandon any kind of violence at all cost. By advocating any kind of violence, you are misrepresenting Christianity.

    He was a Jew from Galilee. I doubt that He was a man of color.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    Of course he wasn't white, so He was a man of color. Are you asking if He was a black man on earth? I doubt it.

    I have a problem with it because no one knows what Jesus looks like. God must have wanted it that way.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    Or, they didn't come up with flash photography.

    Much better than what we're used to seeing. I think he looks middle eastern.

    They had artists back then who drew pictures and also made statues.

    If God wanted us to know what Jesus looked like it would have been made known.

    As for the pictures and actors of an attractive Jesus---that is nowhere near the truth.

    Oh I don't know....ever seen a drawn picture or statue of the chief priests...I think not.
