    Sharpton Guest: Jesus was a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist”

    Sharpton Guest: Jesus was a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist”

    “Jesus can be too white and too empired for us to understand.”

    Jesus: social justice warrior? Apparently so, if you believe Jacqui Lewis, senior minister of the very liberal Middle Collegiate Church in NYC. During her appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, Lewis described Jesus as a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist.”

    The notion that Jesus was Palestinian has been thoroughly debunked. He was Jewish, after all. But that hasn’t stopped anti-Semites like Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, from also making the claim.

    Claiming that “America has forgotten what it means to be Christian,” Lewis said that “Jesus can be too white and too empired for us to understand.”

    And was Lewis alluding to Jews, sometimes referred to as the Chosen People, when she said “the Jesus that is created by the white church . . . believes that because, quote, folks are chosen, that they have more money, more assets, more wealth, better education”?

    Note: Lewis describes the Jesus created by white America as too “empired” to be understood. Empired? Is that even a word? Or is it a neologism of the sort left-wingers favor, to lend an intellectual gloss to their spiel?

    Note segundo: here is Lewis in 2015 relying on Scripture to help Harry Smith make the case that the US should admit Syrian refugees.

    Well, his skin was almost certainly light brown. The Mishna (Nega`im 2:) describes Jews as being neither black like Africans nor white like Germans, but rather the color of boxwood.

    But “Palestinian”? The name would have meant nothing to him, since he died more than a century before Hadrian destroyed Judæa and renamed it Palæstina so as to eliminate all memory of the Jewish nation.

      How do you know this? I can cite from authentic hadith that Muhammad was white as snow. It actually matters little to me less than nothing what shade Jesus was. But from what I can glean from history Middle Easterners came in all shades.

        How is Mohammed’s color relevant? This is about Jesus, not Mohammed, and he was a Jew of that period, and therefore had skin like boxwood. I’ve already cited my source: the Mishna, Nega`im 2:1. What more authoritative source could possibly exist for the appearance of Judæan Jews of that period?

          A) Semitic people are Caucasian. Caucasians are all kinds of colors.

          B) I asked you how you know this. You answered. Good enough. Thanks for clearing things up.

    You know they’re at their wits end when the godless invoke god.

    If only the ancient Israelites had listened to God and killed ALL of the inhabitants of the Promised Land when they entered…perhaps current politics and history would be a lot different.
