Jesus Black or White

Post by fr33k1ck » 01 Nov 2007, 01:55

Im uber bored, and we had a talk about this today in our European History class. Just thought I would see what you guys think, and dont give me that "it doesn't matter, it only matters what he taught" bulls**t. If you say something like that don't even bother posting. No racist, no sexist, no homo, no religious. Just a controversial topic nothing personal. Give your opinons and why.

Born in Jerusalem (I think), people from that area are Arabs. Plus Jesus was a semite and the closest thing to a semite up there is an Arab.

Yea but in history we learned that Arabs were still located mainly on the Arabian peninsula til about 600 AD. And there is speculation that Jerusalem could have been the property of Black Hebrew Semites.

Well around 1400 A.D. the Pope asked Michelangelo(the painter) to paint a picture of Jesus which the common person would relate to. In other words, someone that looked like them. This was essential for the peasants to believe that God looked like them, so that they could relate to what the Pope was talking about. Think of it like this, would you rather have your presdient to be a native born Singaporian, or some guy from Japan. Same basic logic.

So there is a possibility that Jesus is not what he actually looks like right now?

where is the "different color depending on different countries?". I think the color of Jesus Christ depends on the country your from. Here in the States he is view as white but ive seen pictures of Jesus from other countries and he is black. It depends on the country. (Although come to think of it, does it really matter?)

Yeah, I've heard that Jesus might have been black. But who cares? To me personally he is just another fairytale character.

lol erick. I dont think you being serious here. Unless you were truly raised to believe this then it would be a could idea to express your religious views. However, just posting "he is mexican duh" is both immature and pointless. Its all good though, we all make some useless posts. Just think before you post mate ( just a suggestion)

I know that I really push the whole Dutch thing, but mate you are taking it overboard. You just spam every topic with how the Mexican league is the best, how Mexico is the best, without even adding any decent information.

Watch out, more stuff like this and a ban is coming your way.

Mexico isn't the only country on this Earth, that's what you seem to talk about all the time.

Wasn't Jesus a jew, and weren't the original jews Israelis, so doesn't that make Jesus and Arab?

He's not black, he's definitely not asian and I find it hard to believe he was white considering that "white" people are Europeans.
