Last Supper With Jesus Based On Jamaican Model To Replace Nativity Scene At St Albans Cathedral

Click to see full-size image

As of July 4th, a painting of the Last Supper featuring a black Jesus will replace a Nativity scene at St Albans Cathedral to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

The artist behind the painting, Lorna May Wadsworth, admitted to basing her portrayal of Jesus around Jamaican-born model Tafari Hinds.

“Experts agree [Jesus] would most likely have had Middle Eastern features, yet for centuries European artists have traditionally painted Christ in their own image,” she said.

“I cast Tafari Hinds as my Jesus to make people question the Western myth that he had fair hair and blue eyes. My portrayal of him is just as ‘accurate’ as the received idea that he looked like a Florentine.”

The Very Reverend Dr Jeffrey John,  Dean of St Albans, said:

 “The church is not in a strong position to preach to others about justice, racial or otherwise.

But our faith teaches that we are all made equally in the image of God, and that God is a God of justice.

Black Lives Matter, so this is why we have turned our Altar of the Persecuted into a space for reflection and prayer with Lorna’s altarpiece at the heart.”

Just days earlier, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said the Church of England should reconsider its representation of Jesus as white.

He was asked if the way Western churches say Jesus needed to be rethought.

“Yes of course it does, this sense that God was white… You go into churches (around the world) and you don’t see a white Jesus.

You see a black Jesus, a Chinese Jesus, a Middle Eastern Jesus – which is of course the most accurate – you see a Fijian Jesus.”

“Jesus is portrayed in as many ways as there are cultures languages and understandings.

And I don’t think that throwing out everything we’ve got in the past is the way to do it but I do think saying “that’s not the Jesus who exists, that’s not who we worship”, it is a reminder of the universality of the God who became fully human.”

An infamous Black Lives Matter activist – Shaun King, widely known for attempting to push entirely false claims is also at it again.

He called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.”

This is a very obvious push of the neo-liberal agenda, and is an attempt to forcefully fight the Christian culture and attempting to representing it as a form of “white supremacy” among other things.

Jesus was a tan Palestinian and the European racists have turned him into a Nordic blond. In India the Christian missionaries gave people inferiority complex by pushing a false blond Jesus, no wonder even the Israelis who are akin to the Palestinians are banning the racist evangelical churches.

Zara

He is whatever a person wishes to interpret him to be. In Asia they have him as Asian, Africa as black, and so on. There’s No reason to change Jesus image In a church once it’s been made, throw is sacrilege.

Ashok Varma

White racism has to be confronted.

Zara

This has nothing to do with thag

Swift Laggard II

Jesus was not white. A white Jesus is a tool of white ‘christianity’ which pushes white supremacy, racism and colonialism. that is why white church has never questioned the satanic ventures of slavery genocide of aboriginals and colonial imperialism which has wiped out hundreds of millions of black and brown people in the last six centuries

Liberal guy

He is a arab

Jens Holm

You dont know that at all. At the times of Jesus, that arabs hardly was in most parts of Palestine, Syria and Iraq.

The change came by the Islamic expansion 600 years after that and even today many socalled arabs are convertits from other etnicities.

You see the same all over, where all are mixted and connect by finding their ID by languiage and culture.

Most arabs there might be converted Jews, Christians and Baals. You even has egyptians, Greeks were dominating in Alexandsia and Italian genes are there too.

I am sure they many had slaves too.

At that time Islam not even has a single member as well.

Liberal guy

Hi granna again ur over logical insane comments hahahahaha I didn’t tell about muslim h is of arab race. Arab race was not new at that time. Pagan Europe was because they worship idols u overlogical fool now u don’t know the basics of paganism go to sleep granna hahahahaha

Z1

You are confusing Arab language and ethnicity. Even a few Germans have Arab descent without speaking Arabic…

Zara

He is whatever we want to envision him to be, Christianity in Europe depicts him white, in the Middle East he’s depicted tan, darker, in Africa as a black man, in Asia as oriental, stop this propaganda.

Swift Laggard II

That can only be said by a Pagan. Jesus was a Jew who lived in the Middle East. We know he was not white. He cannot be what you want him to be

Jens Holm

She dont write that at all.

Your version of Pagan has no patent but made up.

Swift Laggard II

go get reprogrammed. you make no sense whatever you write. tell your programmers to at least concentrate on enabling you construct meaningful sentences with proper grammar. after that they can upgrade your syntax for logical and meaningful sentences

Liberal guy

Don’t mind him he is just a insane granna hahahahaha

Zara

People can depict him how they want, mind your own business and do something productive with your life.

Swift Laggard II

those are the words of zatan. Jesus cannot be whatever you want him to be, that is the idolatry of white supremacy – they constructed a Jesus in their own image, both figuratively and theologically. There is nothing more productive for me than to defend the integrity of the Gospel

Zara

His human depiction is not what is worshipped, the son of god is what is worshipped, his human image is how we choose to pray to him, enough.

Swift Laggard II

You cannot construct a human image of God in your own imagination. That is idolatry. Jesus was not white, and he will never be, even if you argue for eternity

Zara

And I will not argue in eternity, he was not black either so go chastise the Ethiopian church that depicts him as such.

Swift Laggard II

I agree he was not black. He was a brown man just like the Jews of that time. No need to deflect from the discussion. Ethiopian church is for another day, not today

roland

You seriously think the Bible hasn’t been corrupted.

Z1

Many Jews are white… take Satanyahoo: 97% Lithuanian…

Jens Holm

Thats how it is.

Jens Holm

Its only a few among many parts to make a pocture. Here we also see the ones biasing things are the same kind, which are hypocrites of the worst.

Swift Laggard II

write something sensible. I don’t engage with bots

roland

The decimation of the Aboriginals had nothing to do with colour of their skin it was the knowledge they possessed made them a threat to the satanic European powers.

Jens Holm

I agree. Its about generalisations. The Empires by the socalled white people are based on skills for being better in tech incl war.

Swift Laggard II

of course the ideology for empire needs to be constructed, and a large part of it involved distorting and misusing Christianity to rationalize white supremacist ideology

Jens Holm

White racisme is not worse then the one among arabs, where Palestinians and Somalis are second or thord class and used as spendables for centuries.

Jens Holm

I agree.

Zara

This is sacrilege

Jens Holm

AS written above. If You sell things its a great help the product is adapting.

roland

But Jewish racism is alright isn’t Jen’s.

I insure Mujahideen that we believe in our Allah – the helper and Omnipotent – who succeeded our Jihad against infidels. Actions of the kuffar will not affect our legitimate struggle and our Jihad will reach the strand of success reverently, Inshallah. And this is an easy task for Allah, the Almighty.

The Messenger of Allah said:

Paradise has one-hundred grades which Allah has reserved for the Mujahidin who fight in His Cause, and the distance between each of two grades is like the distance between the Heaven and the Earth.

Yesterday a brother Salih Al Rifai Al Qadiri was martyred in Eastern Europe by government forces while defending mountain entrance to the undeground cave system. He went to land of Sham seeking martyrdom, he took part in battles for Mosul, but Allah chose him to be from amongst the martyrs in the distant lands of Europe. Salih was always known for his good manners, his immense tolerance. He was from those who were always obedient to the leadership. If he was told to perform guard duty he would do so. Never making excuses to avoid his duties. We regard him as such and Allah is the best Accounter. Before the battle commenced, Salih prayed two rakah prayers and then supplicated to Allah. He said to me: If we separate in this life, we will meet in the Hereafter, in Paradise insha-Allah. So news of his death reached me and i was extremly saddened, more for myself than for him because i was not from amongst those chosen by Allah for martyrdom. During the defense, he shot six infidels and then joined with brothers who have taken refuge in the woods. He was responsible for providing cover using his machine gun. Later, an aerial bomb landed close to him, May Allah have complete Mercy on him.comment image

Zara

You are isis?

Muslim Lion

Islamic state and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.

Zara

Go away from here, terrorist

Muslim Lion

The Islamic State is the name of the struggle for demand of Islam and full implementation of Sharia. Islamic state has deep roots in its faith. Its goal is an independent Islamic system according to the desire of AIIah. Islamic state in the light of Sharia respects good neighborhood, friendly relations and peaceful environment for life and seeks positive relations with rest of the Muslim world. It will be very unfair and irrational to call a Islamic State a terrorist organisation. Nobody has the right to do this and neither should anyone do it. There are clear commands of Allah almighty about sacred jihad against those who side infidels against Muslims.

And the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said:

And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped.

(Chapter 11, Verse: 113)

Ashok Varma

Go back to your cave.

Zara

Terrorist killers of innocent men women and children, you murder people for not doing what you say, terrorist.

Muslim Lion

Only defending our land and faith – Islam. You mean that fairytale you Western cowards tell yourself to justify why you always end up slaughtering 99% civilians and never defeat Islamic state since 2004? In fact it’s you animals who use human shields by occupying random civilians houses with civilians inside and then when Islamic state soldiers try to free the family from you thugs, you blame Isis lol.

Zara

You go to villages and cities and kill everybody that doesn’t agree with you or you think is not a proper Muslim. You enslaved women and children. Beheadings on the internet right what about what? And what would you do to me if you saw me nothing good I’m sure.

Muslim Lion

Only idiots and brainwashed enemies of Islam don’t know anything about Isis or anything that led to Isis liberating Sunnis in Iraq and Syria or any. Yes, most of them showed no mercy to the Shia but they did show mercy to Kurds since Kurds are Sunnis. However the pashmerga and ypg are kuffar for helping non Muslims kill Muslims in their own home and their destination is hell. Islamic state soldiers are heroes who defend the weak and hopeless. Islamic state treated those who were abused by the apostates, like they’re a rare flower, held gently in the hands of a warrior they’re valued and adored Pearls and sisters forever loved and defended until the bloody end against anyone who might dare humiliate or degrade those Queens of Islam. And the kids of Isis were treated as cubs and taught manhood and brotherhood and honor. https://youtu.be/r0_q9p0J4Pc?t=125

Zara

You behead people and kill people who don’t convert to your religion, you commit bombings and massacres across the world

Liberal guy

U mother fucker go in Syria or Iraq as ur brothers most of them are dead help them u overlogical tyrant

Liberal guy

Now defend ur already half burned ass

roland

Islamic state is controlled by isreal and western governments.
The Muslim brotherhood was created and is controlled Freemasons.

Z1

Close to every nation (not Costa Rica) has a terrorist organization called “Army”.

Zara

Stop comparing armies to isis

Z1

No, I won’t. Armies are per definition terrorist organizations. Look at Yemen, Abu Graib, Gitmo, Palestine, war crimes are common, otherwise there wouldn’t be any need for laws against them.

Zara

So you support isis?

Z1

Joker. I wrote: Armies are terrorist organizations. Even if they defend against an aggrssor, they use terrorist means.

Zara

It’s a yes or no question

Z1

Take your pick

Zara

That enough of you

Z1

It must really suck to die for a lie and be sent to be killed by your supposed friends.
BTW my version of the story says that 40 Nigerian virgin men are waiting in paradise.
Only idiots believe in fairy tails.
There is no god if there was and he made us ” in his image” he wouldn’t be a bright god now would he.

The Hypocrisy of the Neoliberal agenda in favor of the Black race is due the increasing influence of China and Russia in Africa!.. we have seen how USA and EU had lost their privileged relationships in Africa….and now they stand as the defenders of the Black race….it is not a matter of race..its just police brutality usual in USA where people have guns.

Swift Laggard II

Africans don’t need your privileged relationship which is in fact looting them

Jens Holm

Its not like that at all.

Racisme is all over and among blacks too. It is progress we can debate it at all instead of hiding too much of the past.

Muslim Lion

Isis removed checkpoints and ended corruption and citizens finally had some law and order and rules and security. Before they were only used to chaos and criminal gangs. Under Isis control they had Islamic courts and knew if they followed rules they would be safe and had diginity. https://youtu.be/jOaBNbdUbcA?t=228

Swift Laggard II

Jesus was not white, he will never be.

Jens Holm

You were there.

Christinanity is like any other commercial. In black areas Jesus is black. Clothe is same thing. adapting in time.

Maybee Allah has no clothe on, and that why pictures are not allowed:)

Swift Laggard II

Jesus was not white no matter how much white supremacists push that myth. the world has woken up and will tear down all racist symbols in the church. we have read the Bible for ourselves and we know true Christianity from White ‘Christianity’ which is the handmaiden of the colonial genocidier

Liberal guy

He is a arab. There where no Christians at that time in Europe but started from the middle east. Europe was pagan.

Swift Laggard II

He was not Arab. Jesus was a Jew. Jews are not Arabs as far as I know

Liberal guy

Am not talking about religion am talking about race come on now as there are no Arab race Jews still in the world. Even the first Jews were arabs in race

Swift Laggard II

Okay. that may actually be so, but it’s difficult to tell. We cannot pin down the ancestry of Abraham that definitively

Liberal guy

He is a prophet as prophet Ibrahim is his ancester. Not some jew. Infact the Jews, were his biggest enemies at that era

Swift Laggard II

Jesus was a Jew. His first disciples were Jews. Some Jews rejected him, others accepted him. He was more than a Prophet, He was the Promised Messiah. The Savior of all mankind

Liberal guy

From where u heard in the Talmud or in the msm or zio Hollywood films like the da vinci code? He was preaching the traitors Jews to stay away from falsehood and the traitors plotted against him who were they they were the talmudic Jews who killed other prophets before him. He was teaching the religion of true god not zio judisam when the zio Jews falsely deceived pagan Romans that he is against them and there roman interest

Liberal guy

So complicated

Liberal guy

Don’t think to serious of him and don’t take him to serious rather than take him as fun as i told earlier he is just a insane old man who wants limelight and fame in this website

good american

Maybe he was a European Jew?
