Discovered Manuscript Reveals Jesus Was Black



Discovered Manuscript Reveals Jesus Was Black


The argument if Jesus was Black or White still remains today. Hopefully, the recent news of a new found manuscript will put it all to rest.

A team of archaeologists from the University of Tel Aviv have discovered a collection of ancient scrolls in the West Bank region, near the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were originally uncovered in 1947, and which promise to shed a new light on the life and physical appearance of Jesus Christ.

The newly found documents which are believed to have been written by a small Jewish sectarian group, called the Essenes, retraces different elements of the Old Testament and New Testament similar to the Dead Sea Scrolls, but scholars have turned their attention to a peculiar fragment which describes the birth of the Christ figure in a new light.The manuscripts that have been dated between 408 BCE to 318 CE describe the son of Mary as of a “darker color” of skin than her parents, a revealing information admits professor Hans Schummer.

 “It is quite revealing that the unknown author of the document notes with a certain sense of surprise that the infant’s skin tone is darker in color than his mother and father. “The infant was the color of the night” reads a part of the fragment of the scripture, “In the dark of the night, nothing could be seen of the infant except the white of his eyes” reads another excerpt.

 There is also the mention of a peculiar character named Hamshet, which is described as the half-brother of Joseph. Hamshet is described as “untrustworthy” and “ill-fated”, denoted as suspicious and reviled by his brother Joseph who “despises his wicked manners” and “lack of morals”, but most interestingly, accordingly to archeologist Natanya Jeborah of the University of Tel Aviv, Hamshet and the infant are described by a shepherd as sharing “the same color of skin”, a remark Joseph does not take lightly. “In this account of the nativity of Christ, this is the first known description of Hamshet, the alleged half-brother of Joseph, with whom Joseph seems to have much contempt for some unexplained reason” she explains. “Is it possible Hamshet was in fact the true father of Jesus? Although some elements may lead us to think so, without further proof we are left only with a plausible conjecture” she adds.

  1. All of the different depictions men have produced as the image and appearance of Jesus Christ is controversial, I don't know what he looked like, but I do know that the last Adam (Jesus Christ) was made a quickening Spirit, therefore, regardless of his physical appearance I will worship Him in spirit and truth because God is a Spirit.
