    It's kinda hard to grasp, but during a series of ecumenical councils that was the doctrine agreed on. Here's a link that might help

    Most likely, he was a bit darker than the Nordics, but probably not dark enough to be considered 'brown'.


    Modern Jews, you may have noted, include quite a range of coloration... probably less so then, but a mid-range complexion seems likely.

    I expect he would have looked like a Sephardic jew, rather then a Ashkenazi jew, which generally means a darker skin colour then Europeans in general, and more equivalent to that of Arabs in the region (not Sudanese arabs)

    Jesus was not white in the Indo-European or American sense; he more than likely looked like your average Lebanese or Jordanian person.

    Re: Was Jesus White?

    Jesus was way beyond the bodily conception of life. Therefore the notion that he was white, black or any other bodily designation is flawed.

    Actually the same can be said about attempts to label God as a man or a woman. God is transcendental to these bodily designations, and therefore such attempts are based on flawed understandings.
