    I don't know what race he was but there's some options that make more sense than others. Unlike you, I don't use the ambiguity as an opportunity to play make believe.

    When it comes down to it, his race doesn't matter.

    Correct. Which is why his race, among his other characteristics, does not really matter.

    the Jesus I grew up with had neither blonde hair nor blue eyes...most depictions have brown hair and brown eyes

    So you say his race doesn't matter.....after I already said his race doesn't matter......while also saying you don't know what race he was but I'm being ambiguous? You sure like to debate some strange things sometimes, dude.

    Whatever you say, Mr. Defensive.

    I said I don't know what race Jesus is because....wait for it....I don't know what race he is (just as is the case with you and every other person on this planet). I'm certainly not the one claiming that Jesus is any ethnicity someone imagines him to be.

    So here we are: I answered your stupid question truthfully and factually, you claim that you agree with me, and yet you're still here *****ing and whining for some reason. I don't know what you want or expect but you can **** off with this circular nonsense.

    Jesus was an ordinary looking Jew.

    What a stupid thread.

    Thanks for all your posts.

    As I mentioned earlier, I find the question of Jesus’ characteristics (including race) completely uninteresting from a strictly religious persepective but far more interesting from a anthropological perspective. If that does not belong in this forum, so be it — my bad.

    Directly, I know, but as I am one of the principal posters in the thread, there is some implication.

    Lol yeah I made such a big deal out of your false suggestion:

    Da **** outta here.

    You get so defensive it's ridiculous (especially when it comes to anyone you've had a disagreement with recently). Again: I answered your question, you claim we are in agreement, and here you are continuing to ***** and moan. Some lame variation of this seems to happen most every time we engage each other in conversation.

    If you can't hang with a simple back and forth, don't bother replying to me.

    smdh
    When I 'hang' you claim I'm being defensive
    When I let it go, you've questioned why

    Let me know when you've made up your mind.

    Dude, you have a real tendency to extend a conversation, then give the other guy **** like HE'S the one extending the conversation. This all started simply because you felt the need to question why I'd say people can view him how they choose....just like you and I can view each other as we choose.
