"What did Jesus look like? In their new book, The Color of Christ, Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey explore how different groups have claimed Jesus as their own — and how depictions of Jesus have both inspired civil rights crusades, and been used to justify the violence of white supremacists."
----------------------


In my mind I picture Jesus as being a little 5'2" bandy legged, kinky black haired, brown leathery skinned, Jewish Rabbi, with a slightly hooked nose, and a scraggly beard. Bandy legged meaning skinny muscley legs from walking everywhere.

I guarantee you he was NOT a 6' tall light skinned blue eyed Aryan. He was probably slight, lean, and brown skinned from the Sun.
