More likely this, perhaps with slightly darker skin, which would have been the complexion of the average Jewish man in the region at that time. Considering what archeologists have discovered in tombs in first century palestine and all over the Roman world it is safe to say Jesus was not over five feet tall.

People say that since Jesus didn't wear the important Jewish Kippah he was not following Judaism 100%. In this particular case, I believe the Mosaic Law only required that Israelite men cover their heads during prayer. The picture in my avatar is not a symbol against anyone who may experience homosexuality - only against using the symbol God gave to Noah to persecute Christians, promote pornography and pervert the institution of marriage.
As mentioned, it is really hard to say that Jesus was not totally practicing Judaism, because there was no singular 'Judaism' per se at the time.
Jesus, while He does have theological similarities with some of these schools (the Pharisees for one) is really a separate category on His own. The Pharisees, and others, were constantly checking up on Him and criticizing any deviations. We firs hear of the idea about the Sadducees accepting only the Torah from some Church Fathers such as Origen and St. What I would now explain is this, that the Pharisees have delivered to the people a great many observances by succession from their fathers, which are not written in the laws of Moses; and for that reason it is that the Sadducees reject them, and say that we are to esteem those observances to be obligatory which are in the written word, but are not to observe what are derived from the tradition of our forefathers.
Although it would be unthinkable for a religious Jewish man today to walk with his head uncovered, there is no explicit biblical support for this custom, while in Jesus' day, there is little to no evidence that it was a religious custom for Jewish men to cover their heads. This practice, which did not become fixed until the late Middle Ages, is then projected back to biblical times by traditional Jews.
On a more serious, historical note, Christians should be aware that any depiction of Jesus wearing a yarmulke would be anachronistic, since there is no proof of any kind that this was the custom of the day?especially in the form of a traditional skullcap. First of all, would Carroll or any writer at the Washington Post argue the fact that American Christians are the best friend the Jews ever had? To be sure, Jesus has been whitewashed to some degree, but that’s a natural factor stemming from thousands of years of Euro-centric art.
Whether Jesus is depicted as a Swedish dreamboat or a Middle Easterner or a black man really makes no difference whatsoever.
This is just another case of a liberal pointing a finger at conservatives and blaming them for their bad behavior. Plus after Jesus was crucified anyone who spoke his name, gave descriptions of him were killed. My point is that the left has a new campaign out where they are trying to conflict believers, and they call it the white-ification of Jesus. This is just another attack on Conservatives in an attempt to make us ashamed of and reject our past. My husband and I always laugh our heads off when we see a blue-eyed Jesus depicted in the movies – Jeffrey Hunter comes to mind. Always has been, always will be unless more of us Christians (me included) to reach out and share the TRUTH to them, prove that despite that seemingly ignorance about all things, that Jesus does and always has loved them.
The Aztec’s had a legend that a blond blue eyed prophet would return, so when Cortez landed they mistook him for this fair haired prophet. From my travels and working in different cultures the representation of Jesus, if the art is local, follows the local appearance. If Jesus is the son of God, he is universal, hence he will look to different cultures different.
That may have been why the painters of Jesus painted him in the visage of the people they were living with and surrounded by. This whole White-ification thing is yet another ploy by the left to spread hate and discontent.
I agree with you it’s another ploy to separate the Christians into pockets of race bait and at the same time create friction between Jewish and Christian relations.
Why fight your enemy when you can separate them first and even pit them against each other, and after the dust settles go in for the kill!
Jesus, the Son of God, could reveal himself to us in every generation in a myriad of ways to show us that he is real. Could you please let me know the exact time & day that you believe your jesus is coming back ?
The intolerance shown by Liberals, atheists and none believers in anything but themselves and the here and now, is only proof positive something about Christians and the fact they believe in something greater than themselves they envy. To what religion you adhere to is normally decided by the culture in which you were raised not by God. The distorted teaching of Iman’s does not excuse anyone from not using his personal judgement of right and wrong. Adam an eve was given two commandments by God; they could not keep one without breaking the other?


As man we make our own messes blaming Adam and Eve, is like blaming our parents for our individual transgressions. First of all Christ is a title: it is the New Testament equivalent of the Old Testament term Messiah and means anointed one. John 12:37-41 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? Something tells me you don’t believe in God or the Bible because you either believe all of it or none because Jesus in the New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old Testament.
16″For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
The religion of Islam, more than any other religion, philosophy, or belief system, fulfills the description of the antichrist spirit. The Son of the Hebrew God came in course of time to Jewry ostensibly to make amends for some of his Father’s damning vengeances. Please go back to sleep, believer in a false God, Or are you waiting for your supposed 72 virgins, creating mayhem.
LOL – I thought the new proper way was go with more smart bombs, thus lessening all the collateral damage and without suffering the consequences of radioactive fallout.

There is a general understanding within religious and academic circles that the incarnate Christ of Christian belief lived and died a faithful Jew. In the context of pluralism, in the temper of growing interreligious dialogue, and in the spirit of reconciliation, encountering Jesus as living history for Christians and Jews is both necessary and proper.
The Jewish Jesus is an outstanding collection of 19 essays: each deals with the Jewish nature of Jesus in the context of history and theology. The Jewish Jesus challenges Jews and Christians, in editor Zev Garber’s terms, to speculate on what the claim that the ‘Christ of Christian belief lived and died a faithful Jew’ might mean.
Zev Garber is Emeritus Professor and Chair of Jewish Studies and Philosophy at Los Angeles Valley College and has served as Visiting Professor of Religious Studies at University of California at Riverside, Visiting Rosenthal Professor of Judaic Studies at Case Western Reserve University, and as President of the National Association of Professors of Hebrew.

The custom of wearing a kippah (aka yarmulke) as we know it today only developed after the time of Jesus. I'm not sure about the Sadducees, but there were different kinds of Essenes and different schools of thought within the Pharisees. What I meant was I don't know if there were different schools of thought within the Sadducees like the Essenes and Pharisees or if they were basically a single uniform group. I think they would have mentioned His failure to wear a Kippah if that had been a rule at the time. I have read somewhere that some people have suggested a connection between the ancient Sadducees and the modern Karites, and this reminds me of that. In fact, a rabbi told me a traditional Jewish joke that claims that we can prove from the Torah that Isaac covered his head. There are still Christians who actually practice this archaic faith, and that’s not okay. While Obama and the left demonizes Israel every chance they get, only America’s faithful followers of Christ support the Jewish state.
It’s only natural that painters would depict Jesus in a way that would draw believers in. Since when, though, have liberals let a pesky thing like facts get in the way of a good attack on religion?
They are blaming Christians (not Hollywood) for all the movies that depict Jesus as a white haired blue eyed person. The lefts ultimate goal is to get America to reject Capitalism and instill socialism in its place. Collective religion itself has always been the fly-in-the-ointment, going all the way back to a few generations after the Flood to the time of Nimrod who usurped the authority of God’s own Government.
If you follow the religion in your prayers, then you have no choice, but to adhere to the teaching of whatever god or prophet you follow. Another way might be do simply drop bombs filled with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) causing all to begin uncontrollable laughter while curling up wallowing in the sand in laughing like hyena’s. This book will be of particular interest to scholars of the New Testament and Early Church who are seeking new ways of understanding Jesus in his religious and cultural milieu, as well Jewish and Christian theologians and thinkers who are concerned with contemporary Jewish and Christian relationships.
Difficult topics, such as Jewish mockery of Jesus and links between Christian anti-Judaism and the Shoah, are handled frankly, a sign of mature interreligious relations .


Reinforcing the challenge, each essay includes discussion questions appropriate for the classroom and Jewish-Christian dialogues. He is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of two academic series, Studies in Shoah (UPA) and Shofar Supplements in Jewish Studies (Purdue UP), and serves as Co-Editor of Shofar.
If he decided the same thing about covering one's head then that would also have been the correct interpretation of Judaism. Also I thought this development happened primarily after the time of Christ, and that the skullcap style kippa we know today is a modern fashion. While Jews today ascribe religious importance to covering one's head, in earlier times wearing some sort of headcovering (perhaps something like a turban or a keffiyeh) were done for more practical reasons: protection from the weather. You have the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes (and perhaps other groups not known to us), each with their own distinctive theology and practice, and those who were not affiliated to any party but simply practiced 'common' Judaism. In other words, they considered all of the other books of the Bible to be nice books, but not Divinely inspired Scripture. Their testimony is quite suspect at this point however since they seem to have confused the then-extinct Sadducees with the Samaritans.
Many misconceptions about Christianity and the Bible come not from the book itself but from novels, poems, movies, and art.
Think about it – they tell that you were a scumbag in your last life and that is why you are doing so crappy in this one. If people wanted to kill him again when he didn’t need to die again, he could simply vanish before their eyes. Nimrod’s wife was responsible for introducing religion as a means to expedite the process, thus initiating such ideas as Queen of Heaven, Mother and Child, and many others.
There fore they could not believe that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. As can happen when I neglect my scriptures, my mind does wander and I only just this very morning read these very scriptures. Both innocents and insurgents will collapse to the ground, we go in, determine which of the two they might be, save those that enjoy life, and send the others to hopefully collect on Mohammed’s promise of 72 virgins or more sheep and camels.
By emphasizing his Jewishness, the authors challenge today’s Jews to reclaim the Nazarene as a proto-rebel rabbi and invite Christians to discover or rediscover the Church’s Jewish heritage. There was apparently still no cultural expectation that a man must cover and uncover His head at specific times. Josephus' (our sole contemporary source) statement about the Pharisees and Sadducees in Antiquities 13.297 is also invoked, but in reality the quote is more concerned with Sadducean rejection of Pharisaic traditions. Indeed, this has become such a sign of piety that for a Jewish man not to cover his head would be to loudly proclaim his impiety.
That’s why The Washington Post printed an interview with writer James Carroll on Saturday. So, if we’re going to incautiously throw around accusations of antisemitism, start somewhere else.
He could spontaneously appear and heal people, end a famine, stop a war, or settle an important question like slavery. He is a Jew and he came for Gods chosen people the Jews and God also included the Gentiles.Yes he could come at any time and he will some day and maybe not too far off.
The essays in this volume cover historical, literary, liturgical, philosophical, religious, theological, and contemporary issues related to the Jewish Jesus. In keeping with this, a famous twentieth-century rabbi was once chastised by his mother when, as a little boy, he was not quick enough in putting his yarmulke back on his head after it had fallen off. All religions promise you everything in the next life if you just submit to their earthly power in this one, and if you don’t you are going to hell, coming back as a peasant, you are not waking up in the garden of Eden.
GOD will never consider what you do in the flesh to be good unless it comes from your born again spirit. Several of them were originally presented at a three-day symposium on “Jesus in the Context of Judaism and the Challenge to the Church,” hosted by the Samuel Rosenthal Center for Judaic Studies at Case Western Reserve University in 2009. That maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to throw away the wisdom of old for the latest sociological study.
As Priest, He represents man to God and restores fellowship between them by offering Himself as the sacrifice that removed the sin of those saved. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? This spirit will deny many of the essential biblical doctrines regarding who Jesus is and what He came to do.
