Is it odd that Jesus was the only white man in the middle east at the time?

Is it weird that Jesus Christ was the only white man in that area of the world in that era?

  • it's all made up, will will not ever know what his real color was. As time went on the stories change, and can't ever go back to what the first person said, because that person is long dead.

    • Touche puddy cat but you know what I mean. Is it odd that he was the most pale of all the honkies/crackers etc?

    • i just think it's because most of our depictions of him come from european artists, who probably saw him as something close to themselves.

    • Excellent answer and response.

  • What ever colour he was, at least one thing is for sure: his daughter was black. ;)

  • Everyone knows jesus was middle eastern (Israeli). He was depicted as a white man to appeal to the Europeans thus spreading Christian influence.

  • Jesus wasn't white. Western society has drawn him that way because there are more whites than other races. He was middle eastern ( He was born there so he couldn't of been white)

  • Just like my philosophy teacher said: religion is adapted to who you are. If cows believed in god, their god would have the shape of a cow.

    So Christianity had a bigger influence in White Europe, so obviously they're gonna make Jesus white.

    • Of course some Nationalistic uneducated western moron down voted you.

    • As usual when it comes to religion, you can never please everyone. There are not many open minded people when it comes to religion.

    • Religion in my opinion is a sickness/plague.

  • yes it's odd which why if you choose to belief jesus existed we need to understand that he was almost certainly not white...

    something you seem to forget is that the Bible was published by white people, so is it shocking that they'd make the savior in the image that most easily they associate with

    • Well I don't forget but yes it is shocking if we assume no white people are ignorant of what others in the middle east look like. Good answer.

  • jesus was whatever color you imagine him to be. That's the benefit of imaginary beings.

    • Well now after this picture he surely has a warrant or two for his arrest.

  • This is what the lord actually looks like, this was painted by a Russian girl who the lord came to in a dream and told her to paint it, people who have had out of body experiences or temporally gone to heaven after being close to death but were saved (resuscitated) can and have confirmed that this is what he really looks like.

  • He was Semitic and would have looked like a Palestinian man. White Christians just can't cope with that shit. It's hilarious that all the prophets of the abrahamic religions were poc but whites christians insist on presenting them as white beacuse they're huge racist hypocrites.

    • Because of their tanned skin. However, black is typically refered to people of African descent and the original Jews aren't as dark those from africa.

    • Supposedly the ones that left Egypt were way darker than a tan and half of the ones that were in the middle east were for real black. Your article and a few history books show that.
