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?

I believe it was said Jesus had hair of Wool, skin of brass,so I'd go
with Arab-looking.Renaissance paintings would would have him white-
looking - possibly visually pleasing to those at the time.

A "surely a man capable of these miracles had to look like us" kinda
thing. Since there's a commandment about not making graven images,
no-one who followed him would have made pictures of him.

If Jesus were white-skinned like the oppressive Romans,not the same
color of the people he wanted to rise up,it wouldn't make sense.
