And not only did He not show Himself to anyone, He said we must not make any image of Him.

I think it's funny all of these GRACE THREADS when Jesus Himself told John in Revelation there is coming a "Great Falling Away!" That He would send a Delusion! I can literally envision MILLIONS rejecting Christ for not being WHITE!

The USA is so racist today, it is a Den of Thieves!

My daughter is Black and when we travel she is always targeted. A Dark Skinned Jesus would most definitely cause these people to leave Christ. This is another reason I find the OSAS message to be false because Christ said there will be a Great Falling Away. If the Grace Message was true, no one could Fall Away!
I think racists will meet their maker who will appear as one of the people the racist hated and treated unjustly.
If the racist loves Jesus it will change his heart about the people he hated. If not he will die in his hate.

So you believe the BLM that are dragging white people out of cars and beating them, and ganging up on white people and beating them and in myriads of videos beating white people will see Jesus as white? Or of the other racists telling others that nearly all whites are racist, which in itself is plain racism?

No, that isn't going to be what happens. These racists will still be racists until they die, or get converted.

For the record I don't believe racists are believers, nor do I think seeing Jesus in any color will change them.

It is the Gospel that transforms, Romans 1:16; 2 Corinthians 3:18, not seeing Jesus in ones favorite skin color.

I did not say Jesus was Arabian. I said his skin color was more Arabian than black or white.
Jesus was a Palestinian Jew, and certainly the Arabians or Arabs (Ishmaelites) were descended from Abraham (just like the Israelites).

And so his skin color would be more like...
a.) White
b.) Black
c.) Arabian

Africa is a continent and not a country. How is Jesus portrayed in you country?, most people don't ask that question.

If you can ask that question, you will probably understand where I am coming from.

Maybe you should read what I said then you would understand Africa is also a place. As Asia is too a Continent. I have too many places on each of them. In my country, Jesus is not portrayed, HE is being betrayed.

As he grew up but his body was prepared by God. His body was not of Mary nor of Joseph. The seed was of God. We can assume that God made his body as a Jewish body.

I like that.

Pharaoh oppressed the Israelites because they were increasing in number. He did not want to loose his power as it had a lot of impact on his self esteem.

I think insecurity is destroying humanity. Oppression is a sign that the perpetrator is simply intimidated. We find our identity in power, wealth etc and cannot risk loosing it, hence the oppression, slavery, racism etc.

Insecurity is very dangerous and is the cause of many crimes.
The perpetrators do not have to be outside of the ethnic group ... people sell out their own people time and time again if there is personal gain.

Son 5:10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

Song of Solomon says he was white with a healthy redish color.

Thanx Bro, red ain't exactly white but point taken and was he comparing himself to the queen of Sheba ?Was that the queen of Sheba speaking about Solomon ? Been a while but same difference

And so would that be the same color that the Jewish/Arab folks in that part of the world have?

Ishmael's mother was Egyptian. Sarah was not - she was Abraham's half sister.

I’m white with a red tint, as most caucasians are.

The woman who is a foreshadow of the bride of Christ describes Christ her husband as being white and ruddy with black curly hair.

I've heard it said that Sarah was his 1/2 sister but I have my doubts , Hagar was an Egyptian
Abraham replied, "I said to myself, 'There is surely no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.' Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father though not of my mother; and she became my wife." Genesis 20:11-12

***************

Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; Genesis 16:1

(Giving both since I am not sure which one you doubt :))

Didn't he let her go and never saw her again, though their son Menelech did come visit when he was older for a while

I think white is just another term for Caucasian because the verse goes on to say he was ruddy. I don’t know that Jews have a specific color but I do know that there are three basic races, caucasoid, negroid and mongoloid.
