See, I made it. It took me until Friday to post this week, but I'm still posting once a week.
They say you should never talk about politics or religion in polite company, but I know most of you are not polite so we're ok. Anyways we're not going to talk about religion per se, only an artifact of religion. Yesterday I spotted a picture of Jesus. I'm sure most have seen the same if not similar. The one where Jesus is blond haired, blue eyed and has white skin. Yes, the very same Jesus that was Jewish, born of Middle Eastern parents. Who and when did we come up with the idea Jesus was a white boy? I can only relate it to all these years of 2 + 2 = 4 and then someone says no it equals 5 and everyone says fine it must be so. It makes no sense to me. Come on folks, how many times has the news flashed onto scenes from the Middle East and you see someone native to that area looking totally European? It just doesn't happen. Well that is until you talk about the Son of God and now all of the sudden, SHAZAM, instant white boy Now I've also seen black Jesus, same robe and facial features, except for dark skin and a cool afro with halo effects around it. Here's the deal though, has anyone ever seen a picture depicting Jesus as Middle Eastern, in fact that's the QOD.
Have you seen a picture of Jesus depicted as Middle Eastern?
