    If Jesus was born in Jeruselem then he is Jewish right? But, in every church I have visited both Black and White he is not as the bible describes: woolly hair, brown skin. Instead he is a White man. Why is that?

    It's kind of like how Barack is no longer a Muslim now that he has arisen as the Obamessiah.

    I didn't know that you thought so highly of Obama to use him in an analogy for describing Jesus.

    No clue where you would get something that absurd. All Christian churches know Jesus was a Jew. :rolleyes:

    Jesus was a semetic person, aka arabic.

    The "pictures" that portray him as a blond blue eyed white man are example of how wrong religion is and the racism and arrogance of humans in their worship of their gods.

    I got a whipping for asking about this in sunday school one time.
    Question nothing in church is how I was raised.
    btw it is the same denomination as Palin belongs to.

    I have never seen Jesus portrayed as a gentile with blue eyes. And since no one who portrays Him has ever seen Him, I highly doubt ANY portrayal of Him.

    Some of you might like THIS though:

    The pictures of him are people who drew depictions of him from the local population. In Norway he looks Norwegian, in Italy he looks italian.

    The guy is 2010 years dead and buried. There is not a lot of data on his appearance.

    Hair might have been red or brown, we don't know. David, who was a relative, had red hair.

    Since he had a job that required lots of physical exertion, he must have been eye candy for the women. He was, after all, a god.
