Pictures of Jesus
    #1732484 - 07/20/03 04:08 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Ever been into a Christian home or church where they have pictures of Jesus? Nobody alive knows what he looks like. He was probably swarthy with an Arabic hooked nose, yet is frequently depicted as light-skinned and blue-eyed with an aquiline nose. (Didn't know the guy was from northern Europe!)

Why do Christians need a false image representation of the man or any image whatsoever?

Swami, don't you know? People need a picture of Jesus because it is proof that he existed.
And, since the majority is always right, of course he's white.

Jesus would have had an arabic appearance, but we dont wanna be praying to black people now do we? I dont know many people who sit there asking the nigga in the sky for guidance...

And be careful the christians will be here soon defending there damned book and offering us forgiveness...... How comforting

To aid their faith? Their are certain sects of Maynard's faith that prohibit members from listening to any other music...

most chrisitians would be horrified at the true Jesus. when he returns, they'll probably kill him... again. or they'll mistake him for a hippie and throw him in jail or something.

People in different cultures depict Jesus, or any other religious figure, in a way that looks familiar to them. The depicitions of Jesus aren't limited to just the Northern European ones. There's also depictions of Jesus as being black, Indian, Asian, Hispanic, etc. The same thing is true(to some degree) of Buddhism. Siddhartha, in all likelihood did not look anything like the plump figure depicted in the famous statue of him in Japan.

what makes you think that the pigs didn't already get him?

bush = antichrist = already won. we're in hell on earth. I hope not though.

I really think that is why it never actually said what Jesus looked like in the Bible. For all I know he could have been green. Jesus was a Jew, so he most likely looked like one. I always hated how people believed that Jesus had blond hair and blue eyes. But then again, I don't know what he looked like...

umm, I've never seen a picture of jesus with blonde hair or blue eyes. He's always depicted as having brown hair and eyes.

I susposse that's NOT (sorry) what he meant, dude. (I believe he meant to put brown hair)Anyways, I don't think that was the point.
All I know, is that I don't need a picture of a mushroom to "aid" me in my faith. Its funny how people need a picture to continue believing, sort of proves a point, doesn't it?
Peace.

no, I read funguys post again and I'm pretty sure that he is saying that people believe that jesus is blonde/blue, which I don't agree with (maybe some aryian nation types...)

but with the mushroom thing.... most of my friends who get their own places immediately put up all kinds of trippy posters and cloth tapestries and blacklights and etc., many of them with mushrooms and weed leaves, etc.

this could be interpreted as idol worship, but who cares? I like looking at pictures of weed and shrooms just like the christians like looking at their messiah.

One of my books from seminary , on church history, has pictures of Asian and other ethnic Christ's upon the cross. It is the same with Buddha statues. It is fairly easy to tell a common ceramic Japanese garden-Buddha from a Tibetan or a spired-cap Ceylonese or Cambodian Buddha. This is human nature, to identify with these beings.

I still don't know what to make of the Shroud of Turin. I've read earlier books on it, then the back and forth hoax-not hoax-hoax books, the Nova specials, the C-14 dating results, the microscopic pollen identification of the Crown-of-Thorns plant around the head and shoulders. I think that image is a pretty good possibility of Y'shua ben Miriam. He would've had to be mesomorphic enough to withstand a 40 lash beating with a Roman flagrum (little lead dumbells on leather thongs), plus the slapping, crowning with thorns, and then, to last some three hours on a cross. So the 5'10'', 185 lb. pony-tailed, bearded, broken-nosed, wrist and instep-pierced Semitic-looking image, has really made a lot of people wonder.
