This Forum Is A Discussion About “WHAT COLOR WAS JESUS”

All of us have been taught all of our lives that Jesus was a white male. White Europeans, specifically Michael Angelo, and white Americans have not only taught that Jesus was white, but everything that is good, such as God, Angels, and everything in heaven – have all been associated with the white race. The devil and everything evil have been associated with the black race. There have not been quarrels or outcry about the white-Jesus theory from the white community until African Americans questioned the validity of this claim. If we can be honest with ourselves, the philosophy of Jesus being a white male never mattered much to anyone until the validity of the claim has been brought into question. The offense to the challenge to the white-Jesus theory often rises up with the confession, “It doesn’t matter what color Jesus was” which is completely false. The truth is that it does matter to them and to everyone what color Jesus was on earth. The white-Jesus theory has been the status quo in America for centuries. The people manifesting the seeds of offense to those challenging their theory are indeed offended by those who are treading upon a theory they believed all their lives. It matters to them, and it matters to everyone. The reason it matters is that the white-Jesus theory is false. And if we care about the truth we would seek it out, and therefore debunk all false theories that do not line up with the Scriptures. Jesus was not born in Europe or in the United States. The truth about Jesus is that He was a Hebraic-Jew from the land of Israel, whose descendants came out of Egypt in Africa (De. 10:22); and not a white male of European descent. In the Bible, Jacob’s household of seventy-people relocated to Egypt because there was a severe famine in their homeland, and there was food in Egypt. They moved to the section of Egypt called Goshen. And when Moses was eighty, God sent him back into Egypt to lead all the Israelites out; where they eventually settled in what became known as the land of Judea. Jesus was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth.

– Blessings to all of you.

  1. I’ve certainly had my share of discussions with a many of races concerning this topic, but especially among my white friends it was just as you stated, the first response is, “What difference does it make?… He died for all of us!” My response then is always, if it doesn’t matter, then let’s stop making movies and painting pictures of a “white Jesus”! Usually the conversation goes left afterwards.

  2. As an Exchange Student in Spain, I learned how the Spaniards drove the Moors out of their country. The Moors had rule the Southern region of Spain for over 700 years. The Moors had to renounce their muslin faith to avoid a beheading by the Spanish people during Inquisition.

    I share of this to say, it was about the name of your God and not the color of your skin that separated people.

    What has happened people of African descent have been associated with not being Christ believers. And in my opinion is the reason of our treatment in the world today.
