Why is it the even though the Bible makes it clear all events take place in the Middle East and or Africa yet everyone believes people in the Bible are Caucasian? To my knowledge Europeans were only mentioned when Rome conquered Israel. What were they called? GENTILES. There are very, and I mean very, few Caucasians mentioned in The Holy Bible. I’m not trying to be controversial or hurt anyone feelings. This is FACT. I’m tired of people trying to distort facts. The Holy Bible does not revolve around Europe.
It’s very simple people; Europe = White people, Africa = Black people, Middle East = Middle Eastern people — which is a mix of Blacks and Asians. Geography is your friend. LEARN IT! Enough of my words. What does The Holy Bible have to say it’s peoples skin color?
“My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.” King James Version (KJV)
“Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.” King James Version (KJV)
“Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.” King James Version (KJV)
Revelation 1:14 – 15 [Speaking about Jesus]
“His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.” King James Version (KJV)
This is very important what I’m about to say. Brass as we know didn’t exist 2,000 years ago. This is [sort of] a translation error. Long story short that “Brass” is referring to a deep copper like color. Well I’ll be darn. I, a Black man, have the exact same skin color as a penny which is copper. Now I’m not saying Jesus is Black. I’m just saying I don’t know many types of people who have wool like hair and match the color of copper. That’s all I’m saying.
Also Romans put Jesus on a coin. If you ever wondered how Jesus actually looked this is probably as close as your going to get to seeing his actual appearance on this Earth
The “Caucasians ” version of Jesus was drawn by the Roman Catholic Church in the 1600’s. I don’t waste time learning false history so I do not know the exact date.
I know what your about to say. “Jesus was Jewish!” I don’t know why folks think Jew can’t be Black which I’m not saying Jesus was Black but most people will assume that. [For the record I think Jesus was a Middle Eastern guy with dark skin and curly hair] In any case as always I back my opinion with actual facts.
“New Research Finds Jews Have African Ancestry” in link below.
Kapada kapow! Still doesn’t make sense how Jews can be Black? Besides Negros being the original race, which I will save for another blog post, It might make more sense if you know Moses married a Black woman!
Did Moses Marry a Black Woman?
“We learn in Numbers that “Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman” (Num. 12:1). A Cushite is from Cush, a region south of Ethiopia, where the people are known for their Black skin.”
These are the FACTS. I did not make this up. I did not “interpret” any verses. The Holy Bible is very specific about its people, locations, and regions. It’s not my problem Europe tried to “Westernize” The Holy Bible which is a MIDDLE EASTERN book. All naysayers need to learn geography. LEARN GEOGRAPHY!
Last but not least I know there will be people who say “race doesn’t matter.” it doesn’t matter what race people in The Holy Bible are but It does matter if someone LIES about The Holy Bible. The Holy Bible teaches against lying. There’s no way a Christian should let a person use God’s word to spread lies. I’m tired of the lies. Stop it.
