wool, as white as snow and his eyes were as a flame of fire And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace and his voice as the sound of many waters.Revelation 1 1415 King James Version In African American churches across the United States, traditional depictions of a White, blond haired, blue eyed Jesus are being replaced with images of a savior with dark skin, brown eyes and kinky locks From the pulpit to the pews, Black worshipers are looking for a reflection of themselves in the Jesus they serve.But apart from the works of artists and the popular grassroots movements to have all European images of biblical personalities removed from African American churches, there is a growing movement among Black biblical scholars to set the record straight and to declare, through critical scholarship, that there is valid reason to believe that Jesus Christ, if not Black, was most certainly a person of color.The idea of a Black Jesus is not new, says James Cone, the Briggs Distinguished Professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York and one of the scholars who espoused a theology of Black liberation in the 1960s In the 19th century, Black nationalist Robert Young made that assertion Bishop Henry McNeal Turner of the African Methodist Episcopal Church often stated, God Is a Negro, and Marcus Garvey later argued the same theme.The difference today, says Cone, is that Black scholars, for the first timecertainly since the 1960shave begun to realize that they can challenge the dominant White theological establishment.In what is described as a reappraisal of ancient biblical traditions, this new breed of Black biblical scholars are challenging long standing views about who Jesus was, where He came from and what He looked like, and they are debunking many of the popular racial myths purported to be biblical interpretations.It is an understandable concern of African Americans, given our history in this country and given the way the Bible and Scriptures have been used against us, says the Rev Renita J Weems, assistant professor of the Hebrew Bible at Vanderbilt University School of Divinity in Nashville, referring to whether it should matter to Black people if Jesus is or is not a person of color.We have been told our color is a curse, and all our images of God and biblical personalities have been European, Weems says It would be a correction of at least two or three centuries of racial oppression It should be a concern, but Im not sure it should be a preoccupation.At issue are the teachings of European scholars who have de Africanized the Bible in their interpretations and who view Blacks, Afro Asiatics and other people of color as essentially unimportant to a biblical exegesis.Some European scholars consider the argument that Jesus was a person of color to be negative, revisionist history, while African American scholars consider it positive, corrective history In short, contemporary Black biblical scholars have upped the ante and staked their own claim on the Holy Scriptures.Artists, writers and people of renown or people who are of astute minds have always sought to correct things when they find that they are incorrect, says James W Peebles, publisher and compiler of the Original African Heritage Study Bible His company, Winston Derek Publishers Group, of Nashville, turned to scholars such as the Rev Cain Hope Felder, professor of New Testament language and literature at Howard University Divinity School in Washington, D.C., to help develop a Bible that, says Peebles, puts everything back into focus.For instance, in footnotes to the account of the crucifixion of Jesus in Mark 15 21 and Matthew 27 32, the Original African Heritage Study Bible states that Simon of Cyrene, the man called upon to carry the cross of Jesus as the Roman soldiers led him out to be crucified, was an African visitor to Jerusalem He had come from the province of Cyrenaica in northern Libya, where many Black people lived.This Easter season, many African Americans will worship with the added knowledge that the man who helped to carry their saviors crossand the man on the crosswere people of color, much like themselves.This is than just an academic exercise.Black biblical scholarship has given comfort to African American religious communities that have become discontented with European images and biblical interpretations that suggest Blacks contributed little to the biblical narrative, that they come from a cursed race Genesis 9 2527 and that they were destined in the Scriptures to be the slaves of other nations In Genesis 10 are the descendants of Noahs sons These scriptures, and others, were used as justification, first for the enslavement of Blacks in America, and then for the legalization of racial segregation and discrimination.Black church denominations, including Protestant and Catholic, are publicly addressing the issue of racism in religion.Some predominantly White mainline denominations, evangelical groups and ecumenical organizations also are studying the issue of racism within the church Even after such reviews, some Whites have not altered their vision of Jesus Some openly question whether an Afrocentric view of the Bible, with a Jesus of color at the center, is nothing than a kind of me ism and false pride that could become a barrier between the races.I think what has happened in the past is that people in the dominant culturethe White, European culturehave imposed their understanding of God upon other people throughout the world, explains Cone, and therefore, as long as Whites imposed that position upon the African American community and made them accept the White God, everything was fine, and that was regarded as objective and true.Now that European truths are no longer readily accepted and African Americans and other people of color have begun to critically evaluate what they have been taught, there is a new level of racial tension.White scholars get angry, and they say all we get into is kind of everybodys view of God is just as good as anybody elses, and thats not true, says Cone What we are saying is that if we are going to come up with a God that is good for everybody, then everybody has to be a part of that debate.It is not God who does all this talking, it is human beings who do it It is human beings who write books, do theology and do biblical and scientific work And we know that human beings are not perfect therefore, they need to be challenged, and they need to be challenged with evidence.In the Book of Acts, Chapter 8, is the well known account of the roadside baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch, a high treasury official in the court of Candace, the Ethiopian queen Earlier in the text Acts 2 is the account of Jews from Mesopotamia, Egypt and Libya near Cyrene who were at Pentecost, the day that the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples and followers, after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.An important fact of biblical history is that the Church at Antioch in Syria Acts 11 is recognized as the first Christian church and is where the term Christian came into use Footnotes in the Original African Heritage Study Bible attribute 50 percent of the prophets and teachers in the Church at Antioch as persons of color, with Acts 13 1 giving particular attention to two of them Simeon, called Niger, a Latin term for black, and Lucius, of Cyrene.But beyond interpreting important personalities of the Bible as Black or of African descent, African American scholars have declared that Jesus himself was a person of color.Two of the most popular and often cited passages to buttress this idea are Revelation 1 1415 and Daniel 7 9, which describe the African features of the Messiah hairs were white like wool and feet like unto fine brass.In addition to references, Black scholars have turned to historical, anthro pological and archaeological data, as well as biblical hermeneutics to make their case Much of the discussion centers around the ancient Mediterranean world and, specifically, Canaan, which is known today as Palestine and was called the Promised Land In biblical times, it was located between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea Other areas are the Fertile Crescent, called the Near East Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers Ethiopia, called Cush and Egypt, one of the major military powers in biblical times.Ancient recorders such as Herodotus, the Greek historian of the fifth cen tury B.C., in Herodotus History, described Egyptians as Black and having wooly hair And in their art, Egyptians depicted themselves as people with reddish brown, yellow and black skin tones.The ancient cultures of the Bible were quite unlike modern society, with its overt color prejudices In biblical times, people were concerned with ethnic groups than skin color.People of antiquity were aware of color differences, but people were not categorized according to the color differences, explains Weems, who also is a noted author Given what we know of people of color in that region, there were no European people Even as we look at pictures of people of the Mediterranean region, we see people who are very brown in pigmentation.And there was a great amount of social exchange between people It was an important trade route that connected Egypt with the rest of the world, she adds.Some clergy mThe 1990s African Americans achieved influenceand faced explosive issuesthan ever before
