Jesus Christ and Blue Eyes...........Hmm
Does It Matter?
Jesus had blue eyes and light skin, or did he? Hmmm, now, I'm not a scholar of history or religion, yet I find it difficult to believe that Jesus Christ, son of God, had light skin and blue eyes. I also have a difficult time thinking Jesus had black skin. Yet most of the pictures I have ever seen show a light skinned man with brown hair and blue eyes.
Think of the part of the world where Jesus lived, the Middle East. What do people in that part of the world look like? Their skin color tends to be a brownish color which would be the result of a mixture between white and black. No, I'm not suggesting God is either one because the Bible teaches that God is a spirit, and when Jesus walked on the earth He was God in the flesh. Yet, it would make sense that when Jesus walked on this earth that he would have the skin color of the people where He lived, which is in the Middle Eastern world. The people there tend to have a brownish skin color.
The light skinned Jesus likely came from the white Europeans who envisioned Jesus as having light skin and blue eyes. Likewise, some black people think of Jesus as having black skin simply because we tend to see Him as looking like we do. I for instance have light skin so when I think of Jesus I think of him as having a light skin color, (I also have freckles but somehow I don't think He had those ;>)but the reality is His skin color was likely brown.
What is Skin Color?
Really our skin color is just a descriptive term to describe what our exterior, or shell looks like. It's no different than describing someone as having red, blond, black, or brown hair, freckles or no freckles. God, through His son Jesus Christ, loves the entire world (as in ALL the people in the world) and it is His desire that everyone/all is to be saved.
(1 Timothy 2:4-6)
God our Savior wants all men to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men - the testimony given in its proper time.
Now, God's son having the skin color being a brownish color would make sense because it would be a good representation of all mankind! Please think about this next time you want to think or make a racist comment????? BIG SMILE:>
Coming Soon: Is racism learned or fact?
