The Great Lie Persists! CNN has continued its show “Finding Jesus” in which it depicts a white, long-haired Jesus. This is the HUGE conspiracy that Black people have been up against throughout our history of Christianity.
Does it Matter?!…Yes, it matters what the ethnic identity and race Jesus (Yeshua) was. If it didn’t matter, why won’t writers and producers simply give us true depictions of our L-rd. Scripture describes Jesus as one having “hair like wool.” It also tells us that Jesus (Yeshua) was hidden in Egypt for a while. To be hidden, He would have to look like the Egyptians who were Black people in antiquity. Scripture says “Out of Egypt I called my son,” meaning out of these people and this land, Jesus (Yeshua) was called. Hosea 11:1.
Jesus’ (Yeshua’s) race and true identity connect Him to His chosen, treasured people–Black people throughout the world; the original Israelite people. He has promised that in the latter days which we live in today, He would redeem and restore these people. That’s why it’s important for us–Black people–to know our L-rd and claim Him. He is our King! King of the Jews–and we are the Jews!
Indeed this understanding and knowledge is important to all people, especially Christians. Jesus Himself tells us, “The truth will make you free.”John 8:32. None of us have been free without the knowledge of what Jesus’ true identity is.
“I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars–I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.” Revelation 3:9
