So what color was Jesus?

Postby RoyalDude » Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:57 am

Some very interesting debate out there that the middle easterner/African Jesus was more black than the white, anglo saxon bearded californian hippie that white Americans concocted in their image. This BBC story titled 'So What Color Was Jesus' is quite interesting - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/3958241.stm

My guess would be somewhere in the middle? Not white but also not black. Sort of a half breed looking deal. An Italian looking guy?

Yep, I'm gonna go with a Pauly D looking dude, cept this Pauly D looking dude walked on water instead of being a grease ball!

Well, ODB...your geography is a little off. Jesus the Nazarine was from the Middle East with african ancestry, Nigerian to be precise. The general consensus from religious historians was that he would have been a cross between a middle easterner and an african. Basically, the white bearded californian hippie, ie Jim Morrison from the Doors, image that the anglo saxon christians created is false. I hate to the say the word, but most anglo-saxon neo-nazi whitey's refer to the middle eastener african as a Sandn****r.

I didn't mean I think he was Italian, though 87.8% of religious Italians are Catholics. I'm referring to the color I think Jesus was. Italians aren't neo-nazi white (although they did join and fight along side the Nazi's in WW2). They're more of a dirty off white...

From the article:

As light-hearted evidence that Jesus was black, it adds that he "called everybody 'brother', liked Gospel, and couldn't get a fair trial".

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Kind of explains why north american christian whitey's are so racist and hate the African Americans and Jews. Jesus is an African Jew. It's like some sort of denial thing, displaced aggression.

Italy is a long and diverse country.
A lot of people in northern Italy, eg Milano, could pass for German or Austrian, while most people on Sicily look like Arabs.
I take it you think he looked like a Sicilian.

I'm trying to fuel the fires of debate over this hot button issue. This heavenly cloud of mystery surrounding Jesus and his color. What's wrong with that?

My personal opinion, knowing the kinds of peoples that make up the middle east, right next door to Africa...I would assume that Jesus was not your everyday longhaired, bearded White Hippie from California resembling Jim Morrison like the dude in Jesus Chris Superstar but more like and African Jew. I don't think you would find many people of that style and color in the middle east back then.
