Well.. I guess if you want to get super technical about it.. He was Asian.
I am trying to understand why this is so important to you. I mean, hebrew, jew, black, bronze, whatever. He was semitic, that means he had color to
his skin. Hair like a lambs wool.. that sounds to me like he was sporting a "fro.. I don't know how many black peoples heads you have had your hands
in, or how many sheep you have touched, but MY answer is MANY to both, and so I can say with some authority that sounds like they are describing black
hair to me.
Bronze can go any way..
Someone posted WAYYY in the beginning of this thread a link that explains the color origins to the different peoples/tribes in the bible.. When I get
a chance, I am going to look it up again, and research for myself what was said, because it made a lot of sense to me, yet I saw no one discussing it
or it's merits.
Oh well. It would have been nice to see someone smarter than I dissect that link and it's information.
Jesus was a semitic Jew, which means he looked a lot like an Arab. Few people are going to deny that. But I don't understand why this has you so
upset, and so determined to correct everyones misconception.
But as someone said, he was closer to being a black man, than he was to being white. I mean, 50 years ago, there would have been people that would not
have thought twice about lynching him in America. 20 years ago, I am sure that there were people in South Africa that would not have had a problem
killing him either... Based on his skin tone.
