My my. You, who does not believe in a higher power, a creator. First starting a thread "a conversation with God". You, who has never read the Bible. You who doesn't know the third verse of the first book, Genesis.

Who's Next On The Chopping Block? Martin Luther King Jr statues. He voted Republican.

Jesus Christ actually was somewhere in the middle. He was a Jewish man of North African / Middle Eastern descent... which would have had him look more like someone from Italy. Brown hair, brown eyes, and slightly darker skin... like what most Arabs look like in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.

Like this guy:




He was not black, and not lily white either. Either way, doesn't matter to me... as long as people are talking about Jesus Christ, I'm thrilled... and that's two posts from you now about God... so jokes on you.

And just how long...i mean beyond next week.

Do the leftist wackjobs think this makeover is going to last? Here is a hint. I got uncle Ben's and aunt Jemima in my pantry, and Elmer and Yosemite ain't never giving up their guns.

Lefties are offeennndddeeddd? If they look far and wide, for days, weeks, months, years even and with a little luck, they might find someone who gives a **** about their attempts to rewrite history.

To get an idea of what people from that region in that era looked like, look at how they saw themselves.

Two image searches:

Fayum portraits



dura europos synagogue



Anyone who thinks Jesus looked like he was from France, raise your hand.....and slap yourself. I figured it out when I was about ten years old.

Let's judge Jesus (since Boondawg believes in Jesus) by the content of his character, not the color of his skin.

OK, he knocked over all of the merchants' tables and chased the bankers with a whip. He was the original antifa terrorist. So there.



Oh, wait.....I guess that was the white Jesus.

The guy center-right with his hand on his head looks like he is saying, "Jesus Christ!"

White Jesus has left himself wide open for a side-kick to the mid-section. Very poor form.

lol... holy **** . I've read the entire Bible at one point, and follow along in church, but I'm hardly an example of a Biblical scholar... but I have to admit, I can't remember reading the story about Jesus beating the **** out of anyone... that's what God in the Old Testament did... He was the one that was pissed off at his creations doing dumb **** all the time.

There are accounts in at least three books, but the following two will give you the gist of the story:

Matthew 21:12-13
John 2:13-16

I was raised in small Southern Baptist churches in the south. Churches with real "fire and brimstone" preachers who wore simple black suits and pounded their fists and bibles on the pulpit. It was their job to literally scare the hell out of you.



I love this song.

You just might be right, but many people, for many centuries, have read it as he drove out the money changers with his makeshift whip. Besides, it's funnier that way.

Another funny new testament story is when he exorcised some demons from two men and put the demons into a herd of pigs. The pigs then jumped of a cliff into the lake and drowned themselves.

Some weird stuff just makes me chuckle.

There was not a lot of funny stuff in the old testament, but here is a pop song from the 1930's about an old testament story of Nebuchadnezzar burning people alive:



Sidney Bechet playing another old testament inspired swing jazz tune based on a 19th century spiritual:



The picture shows Sidney Bechet playing a clarinet, but he was playing a soprano sax in this recording.

How many Boondawgs have there been in the many centuries ? Way too many.
What you posted is typical (not of you) of leftist ideology. Not funny at all, sad really. Trying to created an alternative reality by making up facts.

Yet, ... Jesus did drive out the money changers. With leadership. The Church should be "not for profit".

Nothing new. I've seen Black Jesus drawings and illustrations dating back to when I attended a funeral at a mostly black congregation Baptist church in the mid or late 60s.

From my Holman Christian Standard Bible John 2:15
"After making a whip out of cords, He drove everyone out of the temple complex with their sheep and oxen. He also poured out the money changers' coins and overturned the tables."

My father-in-law firmly believed that Jesus was something as you describe, having the complexion of the modern day Arabs. He felt that Mary was from Ethiopia and could have been of any complexion. Jews and Romans were the major white race in that area at the time of Jesus's birth, but they had no part in his conception, so Jesus would likely have had the complexion of his Mother, Mary.

Just this morning, I read on a newsfeed that one of the BLM higher-ups is wanting all images of Jesus taken down, everywhere, because it portrays "White Supremacy".

That was great. Reminds me of a toned-down version of Cab Calloway.

Here's a version 20 years newer than Ford Leary's. I enjoy this type of gospel music.

I don't think Jesus ever was "white" but has and always will be a Jew. So if Jewish is a color then so be it.
Artists have always made renderings to make a point. What is the point of emphasizing the color of Jesus? Racism comes to mind.

Interesting. The Holman Christian Standard Bible. I have never heard of it. No worries.

My wife insists on being a member of a church that only uses the King James version. We have discussions, .

I prefer the NIV version, as it is written in today's language (just as the King James was back in ?1600's). She claims that other versions change some verses/meanings, that some verses are left out. I claim that the Bible states "God is the way, the truth, and the light". That it says "seek and you will find me". That the Holy Spirit will impart upon me the wisdom I need, to feed upon the word of God.
