This article is on the distorted fact about the physical characteristics of Jesus Christ, the man who is said to have walked the earth some 2,000 years ago. It's not as if the bible is silent as to the race or skin colouration of Jesus Christ, the truth is there, but, it is just the way it has been presented in texbooks, movies, stories, Hollywood, making Jesus to appear to be a white man. On the contrary, the bible itself left enough allegory to the physical characteristics of Jesus in several verses that indicates the real Jesus may have been a black man, and not the white, blonde-haired, blue-eyed Jesus the world have been made to believe.
First of all, let us find out how the Jews, Hebrews, Israelites of the bible looked like. To do this, let us use Moses as an example, since he was one of the popular original Israelites.
Moses himself, the Jewish law giver, was born in Egypt here in Africa, schooled in Africa, married in Africa, and therefore was an African. Moses was born at the 18th dynasty of the ancient Egyptian monarchy. Pharaoh Thutmose III and Hatshepsut were among the reigning Pharaohs in the 18th dynasty in Egypt when Moses was born and either of them is considered the pharoah Moses had to contend with to free his people.
The above is the mummified head of king Tut. And at a grance anybody can see he was typically black in all his features. In his life time, he would have looked like someone from the region of Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Uganda.
Why is the mummy important here? The mummy becomes important because it is a physical evidence to establish the race of the Jews, Hebrews, Israelites. How? Because, according to the bible, a Pharaoh ordered that every Israelite child in Egypt must be killed, however, the Pharaoh's daugher found baby Moses floating helplessly at the river banks and saved him, brought Moses to the king's palace, and the king could not differenciate Moses from his own sons. This means Moses and the king looked exactly the same!!. The Israelites and ancient Egyptians looked exactly the same. They were black!!.
The ancient Jews, Hebrews, Israelites, were blacks. If Moses and the king didn't look exactly the same, the king and the daughter would have killed him immediately. If Moses was a white man he would've been identified and killed.
I don't want to dwell so much on ancient Egyptian history, but let me actually show what the bible itself say about the race and coloration of Jesus Christ.
Here are verses from the bible that indicate the actual physical characteristics of Jesus:
1) Revelation 1:15 ESV
His feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace , and his voice was like the roar of many waters.
To start with, for those unfamiliar with the word or metal 'bronze', the colour of bronze is brown as below.
