NARRATIVES

IN THE GOSPEL OF LIBERATION

The Holy Bible's True Description of Jesus the Christ

This Biblical description of the actual person of Jesus is foremost one of the most important narratives in the Gospel of Liberation. Without knowledge of the truth, one can never become truly liberated.

PART 1 - From the Old Testament

Every individual has an image of who Jesus is in their own mind. Unfortunately, too many people see Jesus as a white male sometimes with blond hair and blue eyes or some other version of a European male. The European race has successfully brainwashed the world into believing that Jesus is of the European persuasion, which among many other races of people of the world, undermines their own culture, and places them below the status of Jesus in the face of white supremacy.

The imagery Europeans use to project godlike deities as white has brought feelings of inferiority to Black and brown people who would otherwise view Jesus as one of their own. The task of replacing the image of a European Jesus has become a hard one seeing whites have saturated society and the world with these false images of the Messiah and savior of humanity. Many people feel that Jesus is the savior of whites only, which gives false hope to whites and an extreme and delusional sense of privilege over all people of color.

The image is so intense that if Jesus were here today, whites would have the world believe that first, he would be an American citizen, second, he would be a wealthy American, and third, he would keep company with other white guys viewing society through their eyes that places cultures of color, opposing governments, and poorer communities on the radar as ungodly or sinful. Nevertheless, this is how the white mind operates; with such an overblown sense of superiority that even the Savior of humanity would be considered one of their own who holds their views about the world and other cultures as inferior.

The concept of a white Jesus has damaged the minds of many people to the point that they cannot decipher truth from fiction or lies. Many believe that the words of Christ in the Bible are the words of white people, or that the promises made by Jesus from the Bible are promises to white people only and that he has forsaken all people of color. Because they see whites as having all things in life, they cannot understand why people of color have little else or live in poverty. But this is not because Jesus planned it this way; it is because whites have engineered a false reality as so.

If anyone were to read the Bible and analyze the life and words of Jesus Christ, they could clearly see that Jesus was far from being white and his lifestyle is even farther from that of a white American. From his upbringing in the places he lived as a child and young adult to the words he spoke, the lessons he taught and the people he hung around, Jesus' life is in complete contradiction to the lives of white Americans or Europeans. Beginning with a description of Jesus from the Old Testament book of Isaiah chapter 53, it reads:

2. For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

8. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

9. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Examining the above passage beginning at verse 2, we can see that Jesus was born a common person as described as being "as a tender plant," and "as a root out of dry ground." Meaning, he was not born out of aggression or of earthy royalty of a rich, fertile soil, but he came from a people who were dry and lowly in spirit and of an earthy element. Jesus was a Hebrew, born as a Jew from the tribe of Judah. He was born in Bethlehem in Judea, which is deep in the Middle Eastern part of the world. Today it is considered the West Bank of Jerusalem.

Now if Jesus was born in the Jerusalem fraction of the Middle East, that means he would naturally be Middle Eastern in race and culture. No Middle Eastern or Jew ever looked like Europeans. The people of that region are darker in skin tone and do not have blond hair or blue eyes. They have naturally curlier hair and their eyes are either black or brown. How Jesus turned white over the years is a mystery anyone can solve easily by simply knowing that Europeans attempted to adopt Jesus as one of their own so to deceived the world, which means that the images and pictures of Jesus today are simply not true.

The verse goes on to quote, "he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him." Jesus was not considered a beautiful person as is depicted by white America under their standards of beauty. According to the scripture, he was the opposite of beautiful, but comely, which means unattractive.

Verse 3 states, "He is despised and rejected of men;" which means that he was not popular at all in the standards of popular culture, celebrity status or famous among men and society. He was just the opposite. He did not have his own church or a certain place people gathered to hear him speak. He often traveled from place to place and spoke with different crowds of people.

It goes on the say; "a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not." Jesus was not a happy-go-lucky person who had many friends and appeared in fun places, he was a sorrowful person who bared the grief and sins of many on his shoulders. He thought about people other than himself daily and lived to bring peace to all and not just to himself. Many people did not like him because of who he was and because he did not project himself as prosperous or successful, nor did he live his life as such. In fact, people would avoid him when they saw him coming.

Verse 4 says, "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:" Jesus did not live in the world of the oppressor; he lived in the world of the oppressed. He was not praised by society or great men; he was afflicted like many people during those times who spoke against authority. Jesus would identify most with the oppressed of today instead of the rich, famous and prosperous. Furthermore, he did not complain about his situation because he understood his situation. It was a position of humility and lowliness and not of supremacy or superiority.

"He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth." Like many today, Jesus was persecuted unjustly, accused, and convicted of things in the face of tyranny and injustice. Like many people today under the government rule of injustice, Jesus faced his fate without a justifiable rebuttal that would be recognized by the courts. "He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken."

Like many people today, Jesus was prosecuted and imprisoned without a fair trial. He was considered a misfit and a menace to society. His citizenship was deemed void and he was cut off from the privileges of society according to the cultural standards of that day. In many ways, Jesus was persecuted simply for being born the person he was and the things he taught, much like some people in American society today.

The passage goes on the say; "And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth." He died as a criminal according to the standards of society and he died without money or riches but with the rich who sinned against society. He did not commit acts of violence or fight back against the injustice and neither did he lie to get himself out of his situation or to cover for who he was. On the contrary, Jesus died with all his dignity and integrity, and as a preacher of truth and justice.
