Of course Jesus was white!

And he didn't really have that awful homosexual long hair. He had a crew-cut!

He was good southern Baptist like me. If you'd read your Bibles you'd know these things!

<quoted text> the original jews were israelites,sons of the man judah,a son of jacob.
they intermarried with the cananites,and pertook of the cananite religion,which killed their own children and burned them,on an alter. god took away their idenity as israelites and caused them to become known as jew,s. so yes at one time a jew did represent a race of people. but today they just like the christians,have a lot of people within their organizations calling them selves jew,s.but are not really jews. because today any one can become a jew or christian,just by joing and abiding by their rules. and yes the original jews as well as all of the israelites were white people,but when the sons of judah,married into the cananites,they changed thir image.as the cananites were decendants of the man cain,that married a negro woman.
Jacob's 12 sons make up the tribes of Israel. Shortly after those tribes made it to the promised land, they split into two houses, The House of Judah and The House of Israel.
If you read the New Testament, you will find that Jesus' legal father, Joseph, was from the tribe of Judah, the king line, and Jesus' mother, Mary, was from the tribe of Levi, the priest line. Therefore, it is no accident that He is the King of Kings and the High Priest, in relation to the Old Testament, to fulfill the Law given to Moses by God.
So, Jesus was Hebrew. Did He look like the Jews of today, basically white, or was He darker in skin tone, due to the climate? I have no idea. I think it's more important to learn about His family tree, than worry about what color He is.

By the way, Moses was married to an Ethiopian. His sister, Miriam, had a problem with that, and God gave her the smack-down in the form of leprosy.

You sound sort of crazy. Denominations weren't even around back then. What Bible do you read? It describes Him to have feet of bronze. He had skin like Arabs. Supposedly people are finding proof He may have been Black. Jesus was not White. He had hair like sheep's wool, not a crew cut. You're very confused.

The discription of Jesus says he was dark as burnt copper and had hair as sheeps wool. Now i am not saying he is black, but how many white or Jews do you know that fit that discription.

Of all the people that have written of Jesus to make up the Bible, their stories and descriptions make it obvious that Jesus had white skin. Why would anyone dispute this? This is going overboard, to the point of being embarassing. Who said the Virgin Mary was black? Really would like to know what their concusion is based on. SILLY SILLY SILLY!!!
Well unless Jesus had a couple of visits to the local tanning booth, he was discribed as having darker skin and wool like hair. Again not saying he was black, but he was apparentlly not white.

joseph was not jesus,s father,legal or otherwise. mary his mother was an israelite of the tribe of levi. so jesus was not a jew,but instead an israelie. joseph may well have tried to raise him as a jew, according to jewish tradition.but jesus refused and delivered his own perception and went about teaching and raising up some one to teach for him. his teaching as you well know had nothing to do with judism,but instead established a new line of thought pertaining to religion.

And for all those people who say that Arabs are white you are wrong just because we have most of us have light of fair skin does not mean we are white because like black people we come in all shades from very light skin to dark dark skin

Of course semites (arabs and jews) are not white. And since jesus was born in the middle east 2000 years ago before europeans mixed in their blood he was black as tobys' @$$. Hair of wool, skin of bronze, don't sound like no white boy to me.

What utter foolishness most of these posts are. Read the Bible and learn the truth. Or better yet get to know the real Jesus Christ, He is just a step of faith away.

Nice try. The "hair of wool" line is a bastardized version of the line in Revelation, "his head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow..."
"And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace...and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword..."
This is what the author of Revelation (a psychopath who called himself the Apostle John) wrote about what - in one of his wacko visions - Jesus looked like when he was in heaven. This looney-tunes John character wrote all kinds of nutty stuff, yet you say he describes Jesus as a black man. Do any of your relatives have a two-edged sword sticking out of their mouths? Doubtful. A Swisher Sweet cigar maybe, but not a two-edged sword.
Lamb's wool is curly. So is my hair. With my whiter-than-white skin and blue eyes, am I supposed to believe that I'm an "undercover brutha?"
I have actually never read the bible so I defer to you on that quote. But anyone born in the middle east 2000 years ago was far from being white. The history channel had a documentary on what jesus probably looked like. They discovered a skull from the time and place of jesus and they did the thing with the clay where they fleshed it out. The facial features were not that of a whte man. And I smoke cohibas double coronas.
