Was Jesus Christ Black?

If we take what we have learned from the Bible he had dark skin and hair like wool making him more of an African descendant intern also part Ethiopian because of his Mother. With that said how did Jesus historical depiction change to a pale skin man with silky brown hair? Some would say the new depiction is not of Jesus but of the devil hence the old saying the white devil.


Description of Yahushua as told in the Bible. Daniel 10:6 His body was like topaz. Rev. 1:14 The hair on his head was like wool. Rev. 2:18 These are the words of the Son of Yahweh, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. Ezekiel 40:3 He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. (Know the truth, Yahushua said let NO man deceive you!)

Different Faces of Jesus Christ – Jesus and Media Project

This painting of Jesus is older than the image of the black Jesus Christ in the Church of Rome which is from the 6th century. Description from I searched for this on


This image of the dark-skinned and black-eyed and haired Jesus is dated 530 CE, found in a church of Rome. This portrait of the face of Jesus is totally different from those of the Renaissance era.

What Color Is Jesus Christ?

I really like this picture of Jesus because it is difficult to tell what race he is. It looks like he could be African-American but he also looks, like he could be Hispanic. He could even be Caucasian. Nowhere in the bible does it say what Jesus looks like. I like how it allowed me to interpret the painting similar to how you have to interpret the bible in your own way.
