  • My Blog

    this is going to be my new blogsite for regular rants of mine.

    This hopefully will supplement my webpages.

    please, if you comment stay on subject. I am interested in feedback, especially real thoughtful feedback. if you don't agree with what i believe that's fine too, but argue about why you believe differently, if that's appropriate.

    and of course, this is for fun interest and for something to think about, not to offend anyone's ideas or beliefs.

oh jesus !

let me preempt this by saying i do believe in God and Jesus. I have faith, i even have faith that one day churches can be used for good.

let me also say that race is the government’s way of classifying people, to divide them into groups.  we’re all earthlings.

no matter how you look at the world, evolution or Divine Intervention Theory (DIT), the beginning of the world started with one race. with evolution, the theory is that people came from the Fertile Crescent. in the Bible, the same. there is a lot of ambiguity about who was living in the Fertile Crescent at that time. but i’m not attempting to prove who was there, more who wasn’t there.

In that area there is Iraq and Iran which were the home of the Bible lands. Israel is there. The area of Greece is close. If you think in terms of languages, however, you will remember that the Greek language is not as old as Hebrew. I would say that the Greeks emigrated there from the Fertile Crescent area, then developed the Greek language after that.

now, according to evolution, people developed different color depending on where they lived, how much sun they got. according to the Bible, after the Tower of Babel incident, God made everyone different colors and speak different languages so they could not continue to make fools of themselves building towers to heaven. So, during the Fertile Crescent era, very few races existed according to evolution, or just 1 according to the Bible. Some people have said to me that the Bible does not say there was only 1 race of people before the Tower of Babel, only that he separated people more, after. I say that there was just the one Adam and Eve in the beginning, and people remind me of all the history of Adam and Eve that is left out of the Bible, such as Cain and Abel’s childhood and wives and brothers and sisters.

bottom line, Jesus was a Jew. Jesus’ parents were from Israel and Iraq. above is an image of a forensic anthropologist’s idea of what Jesus would have looked like.

Popular Mechanics link here to the story:
Popular Mechanics article

as we all know, and as the article mentions, all cultures have artists whose geographical and cultural background influences how they depict Jesus in their paintings/recreations of him in churches and synagogues and such.

So my take on this really is still partial, in that, if this is the true image of what Christ looked like, great, let’s hang it in the church. However, if Hispanics want to hang a picture of an Hispanic Jesus in their church, great, let them. which is to say, the race or ethnicity does not matter. But, to be really frank, Jesus was not white.

Like the article says, “Judas had to point Jesus out to the soldiers, because they could not recognize him from the others in the crowd”. Jesus was like all of us and represented all of us. All of us earthlings.
