The Christian faith took after Jesus. His followers were first called Christians in Antioch as recorded by the book of Acts because they were like Jesus in their doings. Born of the Virgin Mary over 2000 years ago, Jesus, the beloved son of God, came to liberate humanity from sin according to the Bible.
More than 2000 years after he returned to heaven, writers, journalists, scholars researchers, and other interested persons, have continued to speculate on whether he was a white or black man.
Go to Google and you will be amazed at some of the expository and insightful articles and books on the complexion and mission of Jesus Christ while on earth.
However, recently, Evangelist T. C. Wanyanwu, an author, teacher, and preacher man, came out with an e-book: Jesus Is A Black Man: An Inconvenient Truth
It has 8 chapters. It is a well-researched document with deep insight by the author, who is also a member of the Assemblies of God Church.
The book which is currently being sold on Amazon Books, has continued to generate mixed reactions globally. It has exposed historical, empirical, and scientific facts, pictures, and statistics as backups to the effects that Jesus was a black man.
The author told this writer in a private Facebook message that his mission is to unveil the truth and keep the record straight on the complexion of our Savior Jesus Christ. As expected, my book is bound to generate mixed reactions from readers all over the world, which is welcome, he said.
However, Google Books wrote on Wanyanwu’s book that more than 2000 years ago, Jesus in ancient times, it was no secret that Jesus (Yeshua) was a Black man from the tribe of Judah.
From finding on the Google search engine, the early Jews, Romans, Greeks, and others of his time, and long afterward, knew that the messiah was a Black man.
Yet lies, deception, and conspiracy theories robbed Jesus of his true identity with false European images. This has been proven biblically, scientifically, forensically, historically, and iconographically.
Wanyanwu in his book seems to give fresh angles to the place and date of birth, country, lineage, mission, and death of Jesus.
