Some groups, like the Black Hebrew Israelites, claim that Jesus Christ was a black man of African descent. They even have a few verses out of the Bible which they use to support their claim. One of those is Revelation 1:15, which talks about Jesus' feet being like bronze which is burned in the furnace. They also say that the description of Jesus' hair being like wool fits a black man, because black people have curly hair. Is this true? Find out by watching this video! ➨

Should it be? No. Will it be until the time of Christ? Yes. We live in a world with a zillion shades of skin color and if yours is different (too light, too dark) then you will be considered an outsider and a threat.  Can't say why God created us so different from one another physically except perhaps to keep us from rebuilding the Tower of Babel and creating a one world government.

The short answer (which doesn't surprise anyone) is that Jesus was born into the Semitic race and therefore was a shade of brown rather than being black.

You will note that the attempt is to draw comparisons with Jesus' glorified body and our unglorified bodies. The comparison with the hair does not work as Rev.1:14 is refering to the colour not how curly it is or isn't. Nobody on the planet has feet that look like brass ("as if they were burned in a furnace") neither do any humans have faces that are as bright as the sun no matter which race they belong to.

Whilst it is equally wrong to portray Jesus as a white, blue-eyed, blonde-haired the proponents of the "Jesus was black" theory fall into the same trap of wanting to claim Jesus for their particular race. It is a racist viewpoint that is not supported by history, the Bible or the cultural makeup of the time.


@Gabriel, to answer your question: it is made "relevant" due to the racist beliefs of those who put forward this argument.

I have a question, is skin color relevant?
