All historical records show that Jesus was not black. He was a descendant of David, of the Hebrew race.
A line in Revelations by St. John of Patmos indicated that when he saw the Christ in his vision, His hair was like wool. It has been said that some people use that as the basis for the claim of his being black. Most sheep, from which comes, of course are white and I assume that is what he meant, His having white hair.
His skin color should not be a reason for divisiveness. He was concerned for all people, in all times, of all races, and we were encouraged to live like Him, to be best of our limited mortal abilities.

I always thought that description was symbolic, like those of the beast and whore of babylon.

Pisky, Pisky, Pisky. Youmust remember. As well as being God, he was also a man. When do you know men changing their skin color outside of Michael Jackson---and he looks like a demon.

The black Madonna, by the way, ahd nothing to do with early christianity. The black madonna was because many of the early christians were in Ethipopia, and, people always make gods to fit the local populous. Go to Mexico, Mary is Hispanic. In Sweden, she has light brown hair, ect.

Okay, let me start by saying that I am NOT Christian. I dont believe one word of the Bible. But, I am a history buff, and specifically European history. From all of my studies, I have found that at the time that Jesus was supposedly born, there was a caste system in the land now called Israel. Jesus was not a noble, but he was in the highest class of the caste system, meaning that he was WHITE! This is why he was allowed to travel from place to place, claim to be the son of God, and not be slaughtered as a blasphemere on sight. If you dont believe me, which you probably dont, do your own research. You will find that I am right.
