Most Africans have been brainwashed with a white “Jesus” even when the true color of the man is presented to them, they will reject it. But Revelation 1:15 clearly describes Jesus but most Africans still can’t grasp the meaning of the description and when you envision what was described in Revelation and an artist was to produce it on paper, he’s definitely going to end up drawing a black man.

Even most of the Prophets in the Bible openly mentioned the color of their skin and still the African Christian refuse to accept a man that has the same skin color like theirs, but rather accepts a color that is foreign.

In Songs of Solomon 1:5, Solomon openly says he’s Black and if you read the Bible well, it said Jesus was a descendant of Solomon.

Enough said, James C. Lewis, a writer and a photographer wrote a book entitled the “Icons Of The Bible” and depicted how most of the Characters in the Bible should have actually been represented and did his version of what was missing in the main media depictions of Bible characters. Take a look.
