I recently saw a painting of Jesus. He had blue eyes and blond hair. Did the real Jesus really have blond hair and blue eyes? I started to think about some of the other images of Jesus I’ve seen.
There’s African Jesus, there’s Arab Jesus…And there’s a European Jesus (with brownish blond hair and green eyes). But could there be an Asian Jesus?
Apparently, I’m not the only one to wonder this. I was watching an episode of Family Guy where Stewie claimed that Jesus was Chinese and that his last name was Hong.
Of course, I wouldn’t take the word of a cartoon, so I started doing some of my own “research” on the subject. I found Asian Jesus’ on MySpace and Facebook. But what I was most surprised to find were the number of images/paintings of an “Asian” Jesus.
