This wall painting, depicting the Healing of the Paralytic, is the earliest known representation of Jesus, dating from about 235 AD. The painting was found in 1921 on the left-hand wall of the baptismal chamber of the house-church at Dura-Europos on the Euphrates River in modern Syria. It is now part of the Dura Europos collection at the Yale University Gallery of Fine Arts.

Who is Jesus? Who is it that you expect to see? Is it the man in the portraits? Is it a longhaired bearded individual that you would see?
For this is the commonly held image that many Christians have of the entity known as Jesus. They do not typically see him as a curly-haired dark-skinned clean-shaven individual. They definitely do not see
him as a ‘her’, a female. They do not see Jesus in any way other than the way that has been molded for them over the millennia.

This Awareness would say it is not an image of an individual they will see. They will rather experience the uplifted conscious awareness of Christ Consciousness.Thus, when they look into the mirror and see
themselves from this raised up level, this Christ-Consciousness level, they will see the Christ Energies, and they will see themselves, for the Second Coming is not simply a repeat performance of an event 2000
years ago that is said to have occurred.

The Second Coming, or the next stage of spiritual evolution, will involve the raising of personal consciousness to the Christ Consciousness level. Thenthere will be many entities that are the reflection of the
entity now known as Jesus Christ, or as this Awareness would prefer, Jesus the Christed One. Each individual is an expression of the Christed Energy and thus there will be many images of Jesus to be seen. The curly-haired dark-skinned, the woman of great
knowledge, the child that has such pure consciousness;
there will be many, many images of the Christed One,
yourself included.

I find it interesting that Megyn Kelly would defend her thoughtless comments from all of the entirely appropriate criticism she received by saying that telling kids Santa “just is white” was merely an attempt at humor and that she has since found out that the color of Jesus’ skin is “far from settled” in spite of her statement that Santa is white is as much of a historical fact as the whiteness of Jesus, and the criticism of her ridiculous comments was nothing more than “race-baiting” by Fox News haters. I would suggest that she should have done a little more thinking before she responded to Aisha Harris’ article about a Santa makeover.

Its become clear that Faux hires very attractive females and them plays on their sexuality - with their leg cam for one- attracting a mostly make audience. Sure its working, but Kelly like many of them are simply parroting the party line, and should a less conservative network seek to hire them with more money they'll jump ship and read the POV of that news station. Nothing credible about these talking heads on any station.

Saint Nicholas was Greek,(3rd century?)...and there was an early December "holiday" for gift giving under his name in the Mid Ages...

Santa as we know the "man" - appears to be an amalgam...

I've visited the 16th century cathedral in Cuzco where they have their own painting of the "Last Supper". Twelve white guys sat along a table plus one rather brown Peruvian Indian.

Anyone want to guess which one was meant to portary judas?

Revisionist christards are evil.

I actually did a 2.5 yr in depth study on the 'whole' Bible...what's there to 'justify'? It is what it is. Period...
Funny thing is, I am still a Believer...
Are you still a 'football fan'?
I'd be surprised if you did a 2.5year study of the bible and found nothing that needs justifying. What is the point of apologetics if not to justify things written in the bible?

There are plenty of ways to view the bible and a well-rounded education will give someone an understanding of many of them. I have a lot of respect for people who have that level of understanding, whether they're a Christian, Muslim, atheist, or whatever.

I consider myself a football fan, but plenty wouldn't see me as a 'true' supporter. When I see someone refer to themselves as a 'true' anything, I check myself to make sure I'm not a part of it. There are things I value over my membership to any group (outside of my family) which I prefer be used to define who and what I am.
