    Ravi Zacharias relates amazing testimony of man brainwashed by the Viet Cong and how God delivered him. It is about a fourth way from the beginning.

    Based on the info I have at my disposal (which I will not reveal , unless there is a good reason for it), I would have thought that JC's skin coloor was "brown " at best.

    about 5'4", brown-tone skin, black or dark brown eyes, short and curly black hair and covered in dirt.

    He was about 5'10" and of mixed race, which includes black African,
    with skin color close to James Earl Jones. As far as His features, look
    at the image of the man on the Shroud of Turin.

    I am wondering if there were any blue-eyed, blondish Germanic guys in the Judean legions in those days. Not that the virgin Mary was impregnated by one; I would never say that. But If those guys were also in the image of their Maker, they could have been a template option, and it would make Jesus stand out in a crowd, even to suffer ostracism and disappear from the scene for a while.

    "Tiles found in Caesarea Maritima, built in the second decade BC, suggest that the legion [Legio X Fretensis] was at that time based in Iudaea. Later X Fretensis moved to Syria. In 6 it was stationed in that province together with legions III Gallica, VI Ferrata, and XII Fulminata. In the same year, Publius Sulpicius Quirinus, governor of Syria, led these legions in the suppression of the revolt that sprung out after the deposition of Herod Archelaus."

    So they moved around.

    Also:

    "In general Germanic peoples on the borders are known to have served in the Roman army since the days of Julius Caesar."

    you might expect to find:

    olive, dark brown, light brown and black eyes with black and dark brown being most common.

    dark brown, black and dark red (phonecian) hair for semitic and mesopotamian groups.

    romans/greeks might have introduced light brown and lighter red hair. it's also possible some germanics were in the mix. that would be extremely uncommon

    on the other hand, a golden-haired child might be considered delivered from a divine source... and mary would definitely not confess to having fooled around (or raped!) by a germanic legionary. that might get them both killed and her husband dishonored.

    Do you have any reference on the shroud that proves your statement? No.
    I thought not. 😏

    The original label "Made In Italy" (now unfortunately lost) was a dead give away!

    Ah, you mean that 13th century scam. I guess it worked pretty well, you all are fooled. You so desperately want your delusions to be real you jump at anything, any relic fools you, even a fake shroud.

    It's very peculiar that the shroud just happens to have the number 15 discernible in several places on the cloth, a sign the famous artist Giotto did it in 1315.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2000406/Shroud-Turin-fake-created-famous-master-Giotto-claims-Italian-art-expert.html

    The 1988 carbon dating showed it to be around that time and now the Vatican will not allow it to be dated by better technology.

    You have been Pwnd.

    Professor Bruno Barberis, director of the Shroud Museum, said: 'I think the
    theory is ridiculous.' I agree. The scientists that dated the shroud have
    admitted it was messed up and one of them said he believes it is authentic.
    I have already presented this evidence awhile back.

    This article on the Shroud of Turin appears to contradict your "evidence": http://www.skepdic.com/skeptimedia/skeptimedia79.html
