When you think of Jesus Christ, the distributor of loaves, the influencer of sandals and the son of God, how do you imagine him?
Growing up in the church I saw the image of Jesus all the time.
Upon the cross, looking skeletal and sad, standing tall in a white gown, arms outstretched, always bearded, not one for a clean shave…
It was years later that I was told, being Middle Eastern, Jesus was probably brown, but of course, my white neighborhood had always opted for pale Jesus paraphernalia.
But if like me you think the Jesus imitations you’ve been exposed to were a little unrealistic, wait until you see how one church in Mexico decided to depict Christ.
