I randomly came across this on youtube, and I thought it might give you a giggle.
Now Megyn isn’t unattractive and her heart’s probably in the right place. Sadly her head seems to be an unwilling travel companion to put it mildly.
Jesus it turns out, was in fact ~ white (?)
Now you don’t need to be much of a biblical scholar to know that the story is born in Bethlehem to a family of Jews. So olive skin coloured at best and possibly quite dark given the outdoor life people led in the bronze age.
Also ‘verifiable’ in historical terms, means multi-sourced. I will defer to readers on this one, but as far as I know, Jesus was only referenced in the bible. Now this does not mean he did not exist as a historical figure, but it doesn’t mean he was verified or proven to have existed either.
That said, Pilate the roman prefect is multi-sourced. Archaeologists came across the Pilate stone in 1961.
This is partial corroboration of the story (by getting the detail right) but it does not record Jesus per se. (No reason to expect it would of course, if the Romans ever kept records of executions they have been long since lost).
You may have also enjoyed the story of the vicar who got himself in trouble by declaring Santa Claus did not exist.
He claimed that speaking without notes got him in trouble. One would have thought that a traditional run through on of the gospels might have been safer ground. I found myself wondering if he was speaking in code? Could he perhaps be one of these guys who no longer believes but is just hanging on for the pension? Or do the cynics amongst us think it was too much festive cheer?
