Recreating Jesus


I often wonder what old JC actually looked like. The famous paintings of him make him out to have blondish hair and blue eyes; quite caucasion...perhaps too Caucasion.

Christians continue to recreate Jesus to fit her or his personal or doctrinal stance on the Son of God.

But it occurs to me that Jesus was likely as dark-skinned (or as light-skinned if you prefer) as President Obama.

Let's get our heads around that for a minute.
