Recolouring the past

Jesus was not white, that is for sure. But then nor was he a Christian, says Eddie Ford. He was an apocalyptic revolutionary who hated the Roman empire and its collaborators

An apocalyptic revolutionary

19 Dec 2019

According to official Christian doctrine, Jesus was a man-god, born in a stable to a virgin mother. His first worshippers were three humble shepherds, followed by three kings from the east bearing fabulous gifts. As an adult Jesus performed serial miracles. Misunderstood by his closest disciples, betrayed by Judas Iscariot, the Jewish people collectively sought his death. Crucified by the innocent Romans, Jesus is entombed, but after three days rises from the dead. Finally, he ascends into heaven to sit on god’s right side. Jack Conrad offers a more probable version of the man and his times.
