The 20 Most Ridiculous Things People Say After You Say Jesus Was Black and 60 Ways To Respond

[table id=6 /]

[table id=1 /]

If there was ever a topic that breeds hilarious, ridiculous, annoying, and outright unbiblical responses based on nothing more than hate for black people… its the subject of Christ being black. Put the words “black” and “Jesus” in the same sentence and people will lose all common sense.

Some people just can’t fathom the idea that a man that lived in Africa to hide, came from a lineage that started by mixing with African descendants of Ham, and were often mistaken for Africans… could possibly be black (cognitive dissonance). What it boils down to is that they just flat out hate the idea of a black Messiah… and those that would reject Christ based on race will not see the kingdom of heaven. Feel free to drop a link to this page any time you encounter any of these type of people.

“Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – John 4:24

  1. If it wasn’t about race his race wouldn’t have been changed from black to white, and then repainted white over and over again for over 700 years.
  2. If it’s not about race, why don’t conservative Christian film companies cast people with the same skin tone that ancient Egyptians to play Hebrews, since Hebrews were mistaken for ancient Egyptians in the Bible?
  3. If it’s not about race then why do you feel the need to speak up against the truth being taught?

  1. How did a color blind God create so many different colors?
  2. If God doesn’t see color how did so many references to skin color make it into the Bible?
  3. If God doesn’t see color how did he know he was turning Miriam white for her comments about MosesAfrican wife?

#4. I Don’t Care What Color He Was

  1. If you didn’t care you wouldn’t have to tell us you don’t care.
  2. If you didn’t care you wouldn’t feel the urge to make a comment just because you saw the words “black” and “Jesus” in the same sentence.
  3. If you didn’t care you wouldn’t be arguing with us about the race of a man that was told to hide in Africa to escape being found (they always argue).

  2. Lying on Christ and painting him white doesn’t make Europeans special… just liars.

#11. That’s Not The Point of The Bible

  1. The point of the Bible isn’t to deceive everyone into believing a lie by turning Christ and the Hebrews into white people, but Europeans still do it.
  2. The point of the Bible isn’t to ignore any scripture that makes you feel uncomfortable, but Europeans still do it when it comes to the truth about the race of Christ and Israel.

#20. It’s Not Necessary To Discuss Race In The Bible

  1. It’s very necessary for us to teach our people our history and point out that it was stolen by Europeans.
  2. It’s very necessary for us to teach our people that the Bible is not a European religion.
  3. It’s very necessary for us to reach our people that have been pushed away from salvation due to the lie of a white Christ pushed on the world by Europeans.

The Breakdown

The reason people respond the way they do to the idea that Jesus was black, is because they simply can’t stand the idea that the Messiah would choose to be black and not white. They can’t fathom a creator that would choose to be one of the very people they have spent centuries hating, enslaving, scattering, and oppressing, WITHOUT CAUSE, instead of choosing to live on earth as a European. They’re hoping and praying that black people in American are not Hebrews because many of them know how horribly they’ve treated God’s people and they know they’ll have to answer to the Creator for what they’ve done… and they won’t be able to make a single excuse for it.

A black Christ is the ultimate blow to white supremacy and that’s why many respond to the idea of a black savior the way they do. Their racism won’t allow them to recognize or worship a black Messiah… but they do expect everyone to associate Christ with the fake white idol they’ve used to fill churches all over the world… and make no mistake, there won’t be any racists in heaven because Christ knows that they aren’t coming to him for the right reasons… but for the white reasons.

By Black History In The Bible

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47


  • The Hebrews were black just like the Ethiopians and the Egyptians. The prophet Moses was black.You cannot hide a white baby in the king’s black household. Many here in the USA believe that Egypt was like America… that there were white (Caucasian) Egyptians in charge of the society and non-white Egyptians on the bottom of Egyptian (Kemetian) society. That is NOT true. The Egyptians, Ethiopians, Nigerians, Sudanese, Lybians, and Hebrews were all black people and not white people with a suntan. Most Caucasians–regardless if they are liberal or conservative–will take the position that the color of Jesus Christ does not matter. Here’s what they really believe: “The color of Jesus Christ’s skin does not matter…as long as He’s white.”

    Minister Fortson, I’d like to keep in touch with you. My contact email is AND my website is

  • I remember plain as day the reaction I got when I told a couple of my so called white friends at the time that Jesus is black one of them said “that’s heretical, it’s the same bible”. When I told my other so called friend about the iconoclast destruction of ancient black images not to mention the constant biblical whitewashing that has taken place to this very day he replied “Who created every color in existence followed by okay lol”. Little do they know they are in for a HUGE surprise come judgement day. By the way thank you for all your hard work in getting the truth out to our people Minister Fortson.

  • I’m not convinced that very many people have a huge issue with Jesus’ skin color one way or the other. I’m white and have zero issue if he was black, brown, or otherwise. The message not the skin is the point.

    • We aren’t here to convince you of anything. We know what we see and experience daily when we speak TRUTH. If skin color wasn’t an issue, Europeans wouldn’t have to lie and avoid the issue to begin with. None of you would tolerate any fake white images of Christ if skin color didn’t matter.

      Furthermore, we don’t need you to tell us what the point is either. Nobody ever said skin color was the point. That’s just the BS you people make up to avoid the truth. Skin color is a FACT of life… and the fact is Hebrews were and are black… and every European that played a part in the enslavement of Israel, murder, and rape will answer to The Most High for it. They’ll answer for their refusal to pay reparations for slavery as well. Those that refuse to speak out and stand with us against social injustice and police murder of innocent black people are standing with the enemy and have no grounds to call themselves brothers or sisters in Christ.

      Keep your doctrine to yourself. You can either come to learn or sit and watch silently, but what you won’t do is teach anyone here or tell anyone here what scripture is or isn’t about. Period. Europeans need to keep quiet when it comes to teaching the Bible… because you have no integrity. You’ve sat for 700 years and let the lie of white Jesus spread… and only now that we’re pointing out that Christ was black do you wanna speak up. Continue to sit silent about it like you did when the deception of white Jesus was being pushed on the world.

    • okay. I’d have to say that’s easy for you, a white man to say. Your identity hasn’t been stolen from you. That being said, if Christ’s (Yehshuah’s) race doesn’t matter, then why did your people (white folk) deceive the world by deceptively inserting images of one cesare borgia into bibles to depict Yehshuah (Christ), instead of teaching everyone the biblical description of Christ found in Revelations? The revelation that describes the human side of Yehshuah’s leniage, as being that of a negro?

  • Thank you so much, sir, for all of your hard work. It is very enlightening! I am awakening. If you have not done so already, can you please do some research on the subject of Judaism and the old testament laws? Messiah said the law will not pass away. Are we as Hebrews and Israelites who believe in the Messiah Jesus supposed to continue to follow all of the ceremonial and food laws? I don’t think so. What do you think? I think we are commanded to keep the Sabbath though. What do you think? This is all very new for me and I’m still trying to figure out the proper things to do or not do. Ultimately, I just want to please the Most High in everything I do.
    Thank you very much.

    • Black History In The Bible -

      You’re very welcome. Glad to hear that you’re coming into the knowledge of the truth. If we could keep the law, there would be no need for Christ. I plan to do a full study on it soon, but I wouldn’t get too caught up in the law because the salvation of grace is free through Christ. It can’t be earned or lost by half following the law. And even those that claim to keep the law still break the law constantly. Mixed fabrics is the one most broken.

  • Maria E. D. Vergara -

    Sir, have you read about a very young girl-artist (now teenager) who was 4 years old or so when she began to paint and have visions of Yeshua , and a boy of 4 years who had the same picture in his mind when he came back from a near-death experience? One was a story-testimony, and another a book/film testimony. They were continents apart but both children had the Same Image of Yeshua-Christ in their hearts as a reddish-haired Man with colored skin and non-European facial features. It was a shock to their white -skinned parents. But finally the parents accepted it all. What can you say about these 2 true-to-life stories? 🙂

    • Black History In The Bible -

      Show me in the Bible where Christ has red hair. Prove to me it wasn’t a fallen angel pretending to Christ. You’re free to trust the dreams of 4 year olds for your spiritual doctrine, but I’ll trust the Bible that says he has white hair like wool. Anything other than that is deception. If his “colored skin” wasn’t bronze, then it’s a lie. Period.

    • Hello maria e. d. vergara. I’d just like to say, the Bible says “God forbid: Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” If whatever anyone says whether they’re children, men or women, contradict what God says or reveals, then they (according to this verse) are liars; it doesn’t matter if they’re children or grown. The biblical description of Christ doesn’t have red hair anywhere in it. The stories you read were planted by the devil, to deceive those who don’t study the Bible for themselves, or receives the after effects of the satanic teachings of judaism today. Which contradicts the word of THE MOST HIGH.

  • Another good and insightful article. You may consider not using images/idols of a black Jesus to prove your point against images/idols of a white Jesus in part due to unintended consequences of engraving an image/idol of black Jesus in peoples mind. Thanks so much for your diligence in study and time committed to promoting truth from the scriptures through mass communication.

  • Dear Dante. Dissimulation keeps truth under evil lies no matter the subject.we have been duped in so many ways. Worship in spirit and truth is a glorified thing, supernatural , above all nature oh that repentant hearts may beat with Christ”s love. I appreciate your work very much

  • Hello. Have you ever read a book called “When Rocks Cry Out” by Horace Butler? If so, what do you think about this book?

    • Black History In The Bible -

      Yep. Who hasn’t heard of him? Europeans have spent billions pushing the deception of a white Christ, and many just don’t know yet. The lie is crumbling fast though.

  • Thank you minister Fortson! Your research and work are thought-provoking and compelling because it’s backed by the Scriptures. Yes – you’re right – the majority of whites cannot accept the fact Christ’s appearance is African – like the Civil War monuments placed around the U.S. as a form of racist persecution – the whitened image of Christ is also found in every Evangelical and “Christian” church. Whites seem to be rabidly entrenched in the “religion” of white supremacy – a darkness the light of Christ does not penetrate. During a recent hospitalization at a Catholic hospital a nun entered my room and the first thing she did was attempt to hand me a picture of “Christ” – a white man with dark blonde hair – that I refused to accept. The look on the nun’s face when I refused to accept what she was trying to give was one of shock – even anger.

    Though your work is meant for all audiences it is African Americans that need your help the most because for our generations in the U.S. “reality” is the racist brainwashing of hundreds of years of blasphemous lies, persecution and oppression. Several years ago I asked myself “What image do I see when I pray”? The honest answer to my questions was the same image I saw in bibles as a child – a time of few questions in the fog of a wretchedness that dominated both our physical bodies and our eternal psyche – we “accepted”.

    Thank you
