Revisionist history

Does this look like Moses to you?

I can't get over how people will place their own racial identification with the great figures of the Bible over God's agency in designing these folks.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe God, aware of the future flow of history, made these Guys non-white for a reason?

Yeah, funny how racists love to twist Christianity for their own perverted uses. There's something ironic about the fact that they can claim to be Christian, white, and haters of the "Jewish race", when surprise... JESUS WAS A JEW. Haha.

An article you might be interested in:

It's an interview with Edwin Yamauchi (a leading professor and researcher in Biblical history, archaeology, and ancient studies) about the connections of Africa to the Bible.

Thanks for the link, Gar!

What do you know about Yamauchi? From his name, it sounds like he's of Japanese American descent...

xian> The name sorta popped into my brain while I was running a Google search on the link you posted. My church's library carries "Christianity Today" and though I don't necessarily agree with everything written in it sometimes, the quality of the writing is usually pretty good, and I make it a point to read it when I have time

I don't know much about Yamauchi himself, though... besides that he's a very well-respected scholar, and he looks Asian American in his photos.
