Some of you feel I am beating a dead horse, so be it. I just dont feel any of the previous post have given me any real insight to the answers which I
seek. I believe in reading through the words in the bible, through the symbolism.
Anyway i'll start with the most common verse, and then reference another verse which makes reference to Jesus' brother being black as well.
Rev. 1:14-15 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 were burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters
Notice the bold text: as if they were burnt in a furnace. This is almost as if the writer John was making it a point to describe the actual blackness
of Jesus' feet. When you put fire to brass it turns black not brown as many people wish to believe. This is a description common in those days to the
negro. Which leads me to my next verse:
Acts 13:1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called
Notice again the bold text. Niger or nee'-ger of latin origin meaning black. If i had aramic fonts i would give you the hebrew spelling as well. This
word Niger has always been used to describe blacks. Even today blacks are called 'n-word's or 'n-word' by racist or even by themselves to denote their
unique darkness. Some of you may be saying "what does Simeon have to do with Jesus being black? Well, Simeon,or Simon as the name was later
translated, was Jesus' brother. He had three: Simon, Joses(notice how similiar it is to Jesus), James, and Judas. Also notice the use of J's in all
but one of their names. Simeon was also a prophet as was Jesus.
Definitions of prophet:
noun: an authoritative person who divines the future
noun: someone who speaks by divine inspiration; someone who is an interpreter of the will of God
Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and
And if Simon is denoted as a niger in Acts 13:1, and he is the brother of Jesus, then Jesus must also be a niger "black", and his mother Mary must
also be a niger "black", and Jesus' description is in Rev.1:14-15 as feet being burnt brass as if burned in a furnace.
BBC ( Brittish Broadcasting Company) aired a documentary called " Jesus, a Black Man". In it they used a computer generated image to show
what he may look like. It was created by a forensic artist using the 2,000 year old skull of a jewish man from Israel. (the original jews were black
as well, but thats a different post). The result was a dark skinned, round face, curly haired man with a stout, broad nose. In an article entitled
"Your Own Personal Jesus" by Jennifer Askin, ABCNEWS.COM, it states: " a new documentary will show Jesus Christ as dark, round
faced, brown eyed, with a close-shaven beard and cropped hair. To some he may even look swarthy and stocky. Producers of the documentary, co- produced
by the BBC and the discovery channel, insist...it's the most accurate depiction to date."
Will post more verses after your responses..I have many more!
