As a non Christian, Muslim or Jew- Jesus has no relation to my religious beliefs. However I find it interesting that he is depicted as white man in most images I have seen of him. As a Palestinian Jew surely he would have been arab looking? What do other board members think?

As a follower I would say you are correct. At a minimum he would have been an amalgam of the races/skin tones of the geographical area. Which ethnic group he most closely resembled could be debated but I am confident in saying he didn't look like someone from Western Europe. I'm sure if someone who,looked like me showed up in Israel at that time claiming the things Jesus did I would have zero credibility with the locals.

Chalk it up to the standard narrow mindedness of the human race. The Bible states we were created in God's image so obviously Jesus was a pasty skinned white guy like me.
