    Was Jesus middle eastern? Or was he Caucasian?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Just speculating, Jesus' DNA was half Mary and half Holy Spirit.
    The Mary portion of the DNA was middle eastern. How the Holy Spirit portion of the DNA effected Jesus appearance would be a guess. Perhaps it was the same DNA Adam had.

    Yea I've actually seen him in spirit but not body. I only have pictures of Jesus and they're all Caucasian. But somehow I doubt them.

    There was a Christmas Carol written by jazz musicians Alfred Burt and Wihla Hutson Called "Some Children See HIM"
    It was recorded by James Taylor. Lyrics:

    Some children see Him lily white,
    The baby Jesus born this night.
    Some children see Him lily white,
    With tresses soft and fair.
    Some children see Him bronzed and brown,
    The Lord of heav'n to earth come down.
    Some children see Him bronzed and brown,
    With dark and heavy hair.
    Some children see Him almond-eyed,
    This Savior whom we kneel beside.
    Some children see Him almond-eyed,
    With skin of yellow hue.
    Some children see Him dark as they,
    Sweet Mary's Son to whom we pray.
    Some children see him dark as they,
    And, ah! they love Him, too!
    The children in each different place
    Will see the baby Jesus' face
    Like theirs, but bright with heavenly grace,
    And filled with holy light.
    O lay aside each earthly thing
    And with thy heart as offering,
    Come worship now the infant King.
    'Tis love that's born tonight!

    Yes I like. I saw a holy spirit white. But as far as his body, I have never seen him. I hope to one day see him.

    The term "Caucasian" or "Caucasoid," if it has any meaning at all, refers to the people of Europe, India, North Africa, and the Middle East.

    So yes, to both questions.

    Or to draw a picture, here is a human genetic chart (modified from here). The orange area includes European and Jewish people.

    And how does that relate to Jesus looking like his pictures?

    That is a very generalized tree with huge gaps from the 1990s. Here is a more detailed current version...

    Holy is white. Per the bible. But what does that mean?

    Thanks for that, but I gave a genetic tree; yours seems to be a combined genetic/language tree (and I'm not sure if that's even valid).

    can you decipher for us, it's pretty hard to look at?

    Europeans and West Asians are very closely related. They look very much the same. If you walk from Sweden through Germany and Greece to Jerusalem, you'll notice some obvious changes, but they'll be slow and gradual.

    Jesus wouldn't have looked Swedish, but would He have looked all that different from a Greek? I don't think so.

    I'm not sure I do either. Why does the bible reference white as washed clean? Isaiah 1:18
