    Of course we all know Jesus was white. Just look at the old family photographs.

    Seriously, the problem is a tendency by people of all races and ethnicities to try and recreate God in their own image. It's not done consciously or with evil intent, but, rather, because it's easier to identify with a Deity who is as much like us as possible. The downside, of course is not only that it becomes racist and treats others as outsiders, but, even more importantly, that seeing God as being "just like us" reduces the need for us to change to become more like God.

    Actually, the general practice has been for people to depict Jesus in ways that identifies him with the intended hearers. In 16th-century New France Catholic missionaries composed a song about the wisemen bringing Beaver pelts for example.

    On the issue of Saint Nicholas, aka Santa Claus, he was an ethnic Greek from what is now Turkey.

    According to the US census, people of Middle Eastern ancestry are white, so by US census definitions Jesus was white. Until the US census gives up and stops defining people from Iraq, Yemen and Egypt as white, I see no reason to say other for Jesus.

    If you are LDS --
    He looks just like his Father --
    per LDS doctrine.

    BTW - that darker skinned, Socialist, giving away free Healthcare, and feeding the masses, was Jesus - NOT Obama.

    Seems to me that this is important because for at least a thousand years white people have considered white better and brown inferior. We, as the dominant race, have communicated our perception very effectively to others. I've always been a little put off by Friberg's nordic appearing Nephi simply because it is inaccurate(and I know he was depicting inner qualities). A black child's Santa is really black, and an Indian child's Santa is really brown. Until we can all stop looking at others through our own colored and cultural lenses there will never be peace on earth.

    RE: A Scientist, The “Pale” of Christianity believes the birth of Jesus was a unique miracle by the Holy Spirit.

    Luke 1:34,“l know not a man”! Did Mary tell a lie? Mary knew the reality of her own virginity. She declared that her pregnancy was the result of the miraculous overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, not from a man (even if that man is the immortal God in a human body/Mormonism).

    The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee..(Luke 1:35).

    This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about, His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. (Mt 1:18 NIV,ASV)

    RE: Semi-Strong, “Our Father which art in Heaven with, The supreme being transcends space and time. The first goes to pieces if you begin to apply the literal meaning to it. How can a sexual animal really be our father? How can it be in the sky? The second falls into no such traps. C.S. Lewis.

    If I recall correctly Santa Clause's origins were Saint Nicholas. I believe he was Czechoslovakian. As such, he could have been white or other skin shade. Almost certainly not Black or oriental.

    Description of Jesus, from D & C 110:2-4:

    "We saw the Lord standing upon the breastwork of the pulpit, before us; and under his feet was a paved work of pure gold, in color like amber. His eyes were as a flame of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun; and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great waters, even the voice of Jehovah, saying:

    I am the first and the last; I am he who liveth, I am he who was slain; I am your advocate with the Father."

    It is far more important what He did and continues to do for us thatn what He may have looked like.

    Santa Clause has become a symbol of selfish materialism, so you can keep him....

    As for Jesus' appearance, scripture informs that he was:

    "in the express image of his person" (Hebrews 1:3) "his" being God's.

    Since "God created man in his own image" (Genesis 1: 27) and that
    included "male and female" no wonder we all look pretty much alike.

    As the Apostle Peter said:

    "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every
    nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted of
    him." (Acts 10:34)

    I am heartily sick of hearing the racism, sexism (female as well as male),
    wealth-ism and general class consciousness, tribalism and partisanship,
    and perceived superiority of people, including in this part of the world.

    It is so much easier to see yourself as innately superior from birth than to
    do anything to prove your worth, hence racism and the division of mankind
    into classes is ever popular.

    As Jesus himself said:

    "And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for
    I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto

    (Matthew 3:9)

    God our Heavenly Father is the father of all humans - therefore, he represents all races. Jesus, being his Son, would also represent all races. By the very definition of who He is, He would be Black, White, Asian, Indian. He would appear to His followers in a form they would recognize and accept.

    Trying to pigeonhole Him and claim He only matches you shows arrogance and a lack of understanding of who He is.

    A little story from a kindergarten teacher:

    A 5 yr. old boy was drawing a picture and she - the teacher asked - what are you drawing?

    He replied "A picture of God".

    The teacher replied "But nobody knows what he looks like."

    The boy replied "They will in a few minutes!"

    That is good enough for me. I am more interested in God's perfect characteristics. Especially the gift of mercy because I need it.

    If God is the physical, literal father of Jesus' mortal body, as many LDS believe, then he not only had to have his own physical body that had some kind of racial or ethnic appearance, but he also had to have had intimate relations with Mary.

    Do Mormons truly believe this? Do Mormons truly understand the theological implications of this idea?

    You know I disagree on predestination. It dumps both our triumphs AND failures at God's feet and makes him a rather monstrous and irrational being. Not God at all.

    Christ taught us to address his Father as our Father and he consistently spoke of him that way. Again, his intent was clear (and Christ was the greatest hence clearest of teachers). Was Christ dissembling?

    RE: Semi-Strong, ABBA Father,The misguided but popular concept that all people are children of God and can truthfully call Him “Abba Father” is simply not true. Just as children do not choose to be adopted or choose who will adopt them, neither do Christians choose to become children of God. Instead, God chooses them. He predestines them “to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will” (Eph 1:5), having been chosen by God from “before the foundation of the world” (Eph 1:4).

    RE: Alfred, There's no description. In Rev 1:14-16, The symbols portraying God, the Father, in the O. T. are now being applied to God, the Son, in the N.T. .John's description of Jesus' eyes being like flames is very similar to Daniel's description of an angel: "I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color…" (Daniel 10:5-6).

    "God the Father is a title given to God in Christianity and Judaism in part because he is viewed as having an active interest in human affairs, in the way that a father would take an interest in his children ..."

    If He has an active interest in human affairs, as you say, where is He? Why has He not shown Himself to his children, huh?

    "Jesus did't leave any doubt about this truth. God(The Father)= spirit!"

    Of course He is spirit... everyone has a spirit. But, does He have a body? Christ had a body... He showed it to His disciples after resurrection. And He, Christ, was the Son of God. Right?

    @Lane Myer: "My question is - why is Joseph Smith becoming lighter and blonder every few years?"

    It's called old age... almost everyone grays with age.

    @nej2323: "...but are you telling me you think that God the almighty is actually a human...??"

    No. We're telling you He is God.

    @Serenity: "Perhaps the reason that there is no physical description of Jesus to be found is that his looks never mattered."

    There's no description because there were not cameras back in the day.

    While it doesn't matter what Jesus looked like as a mortal, we definitely care about what He looks like now. Everyone will one day be resurrected with varying degrees of glory. There are several detailed descriptions of Him (most notably D&C 110), and it is encouraging to know a little about our potential state through the eternities.

    Palestinians today probably don't look like what Palestinians did 2000 years ago, there has been a lot of ebb and flow in conquering nations that would have added differences in the local gene pool. The Romans were there for a few hundred years, the Arabs came up in the middle ages and then there were the French and other crusaders and then it has been mostly Arab rule since then.

  • Serenity Manti, UT
    Dec. 16, 2013 5:57 p.m.

    Perhaps the reason that there is no physical description of Jesus to be found is that his looks never mattered. Except maybe in Isaiah somewhere it says that he had no apparent beauty that man should desire him, in other words, he was of average looks, no one knows what the Savior looked like when He was on earth. What we should care about is what He taught. He gave us a whole new perspective on life. He said "Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you". He said "Father, not as I will but as you will" even unto His death. The New Testament shows Him as God incarnate, even the Son of God who brought the good news that death is not final and that we may have eternal joy if we but follow Him. He - God's only Son - gave us hope, taught us to love one another as He has loved us. He gave us the surety of the resurrection and life in the world to come. What He looked like makes no difference, but what our salvation depends on what He said.

    We say father because it was a way to explain the birth of Jesus - mother - father and of course the bible is written by men so the strong figure would have to be male.- but again god has never been seen we as humans may interpret god as we want to see god -but are you telling me you think that God the almighty is actually a human that waved a wand and created the universe?? Again that is what we believe as an explanation for creation but you can not take the bible literally - but since we placed Jesus's birthday the same day as Winter Solstice - the SUN GOD maybe we are all incorrect and Jesus is a just like all of us the Children the Earth. So again talking about the race - gender of God is comical - God is a mythical figure to explain the creation of the universe. And yes if a child was born to the mythical figure that created all of everything then yes that person would be the son - but saying that actual person looks like God is well ridiculous.

    I don't know what Jesus looked like. Neither does the fox commentator; you get the impression she just wants him to be a white guy. But she's cherry picking, and that's no surprise. The bible apparently makes no reference to what he looked like, so one could assume his looks were unremarkable. Unremarkable, inasmuch as he lived among and was a first century jewish palestinian. That being the case, I suspect he bore little resemblance to the guy we see in pictures, who comes across as nordic or almost celtic in appearance.

  • klangton Akiachak, AK

    Recognizing that Jesus was dark-skinned based on his heritage, on where he was born, etc. has no bearing on his message. It is of note that Christians everywhere, including in the US, relate to someone of our own race/ethnicity/skin color more readily and tend to "see" Christ as white, as Anglo-Saxon, rather than recognizing he was born 2,000 years ago in Palestine, and would have the same physical features of other Palestinian people of that time. It is simply too bad that so many of us have a problem seeing beyond skin color, even when "seeing" Jesus Christ. It does make one wonder about the scripture of a promise, if certain people repent, they can become a "white and delightsome" people. Jesus may not have been white, but he certainly was "delightsome".

    I don't care what color Jesus is. He is my Savior and atoned for all our sins.

    Having said that, I'm pretty sure he doesn't look like the well-coiffed California surf dudes in so many modern paintings of him (including those by many modern LDS artists). In my estimation, paintings of the Savior by Carl Bloch depict His appearance much more faithfully than so many of the modern artists. He probably looked like a common Hebrew from Palestine, and was probably not Madison Avenue handsome/pretty. At least that's what Isaiah 53:2 seems to say, "...he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him , there is no beauty that we should desire him."

    RE: LDSareChristians, God does have gender,or he wouldn't be called Father?

    God the Father is a title given to God ins Christianity and Judaism in part because he is viewed as having an active interest in human affairs, in the way that a father would take an interest in his children who are dependent on him. In Trinitarian Christianity, God the Father is regarded as the first person of the Holy Trinity, followed by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

    In Judaism, God is described as "Father" as he is said to be the creator, life-giver, law-giver, and protector.] However, in Judaism the use of the Father title is generally a metaphor and is one of many titles by which Jews speak of and to God.]

    (John 4:24).God [is] spirit. ( *pneuma ο theos). There is ‘*no article’ in the Greek text before the word spirit, and that emphasizes the quality or essence of the word. Furthermore, the word spirit occurs first in the sentence for emphasis. The literal idea would be something like, “Absolutely spirit in His essence is God.” Jesus did not leave any doubt about this truth. God(The Father)= spirit!

    Jesus mother, Mary, would look a lot like whatever a Jew would have looked like 2000 years ago. Not today's Palestine Jew. His Father, God the Father, could be Norwegian for all we know.

    God does have gender, or he wouldn't be called Father. And he has been seen, by both Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon. If there had been a drastically different appearance than what they were both expecting, surly they would have comment on it.

    Likewise the dozen or so early LDS leadership who saw Jesus Christ.

    First of all Jesus the historical person was a Palestinian Jew so he would look like a middle eastern Jew - so brown skin dark hair - not the white - blonde - blue eyed person we regularly see depicting Jesus currently. As for his mother and father - Mary again was a dark haired - brown skinned person. As for the father that is up in the air - if you believe Jesus is the son of god then since god has never been seen is not human and is for the most part a mythical being - God would not have a race or even a gender. Jesus would look like his mother - a dark skinned, dark haired middle eastern Jew - someone who now a days would have a hard time getting on a plane in the US... kind of funny wouldn't you say the person we worship is much different then the actual historical person.

    According to the Holy Bible, Jesus possesses "the brightness of his [God's] glory, and the express image of his [God's] person." (Hebrews 1:3) Based upon this description, the physical appearance of Jesus resembled that of his father. Since God, the Father, loves all mankind, and "is no respecter of persons" [meaning He doesn't put one person above another), His appearance need not be an offense to anyone.

    Like theirs, but bright with heavenly grace,
    And filled with holy light.

    It may not be accurate to say that the resurrected Christ is currently white, because the color white reflects all light wavelengths. In His case, He emits light of all wavelengths, and therefore doesn't reflect light of any wavelength.

In today's silly world of political correctness we have to try to CHANGE real history to something that fits our politically correct history which amounts to a lie. Santa is a fairy tale...who cares what color he is. The fairy tale originated as a white Santa so let's just leave it at that. Kelly is absolutely correct about the race hustlers on the political left always looking for a way to stir up race hate even when there is none. Race hustlers make their money from race hate and in my opinion the race hustlers on the left are no different than the KKK and others who use race to generate hate.

    Jesus's mother was from Galilee. But his Dad wasn't from anywhere near there. I'm guessing he might have looked a bit more like his Father than his mom.
