Megasoup Posted June 21, 2022 Report Share Posted June 21, 2022 (edited) There was a little Jewish city in Galilee named Sepphoris, just a few miles north of Nazareth. It was It was destroyed in 4 BC. It was rebuilt during Jesus's life, and after his death there was a temple built called The Nile House. The aim and the hope of the inhabitants of the city of Sepphoris were to preserve Judaism in the region of Galilee, and a lot of their efforts were put into the fine craftsmanship and exquisite art of the Nile House. Among the art which has still survived the last 2000 years are its Mosaics. The existence of these Mosaics put an end to any question regarding the ethnicity and the skin color of the Jewish Galileans during the time of Jesus Christ. He was white. I find it vexxing that this sort of thing is even up for debate, as Jewish people still exist. They have never conquered a nation or people in modern times, have intermingled very little with other people's, and for the most part have preserved themselves as a people. With Jerry Seinfeld, Gal Gadot, Paul Reiser, Natalie Portman and thousand more celebrities (as well as every Jewish person you have met personally in real life,) we all have a pretty good idea what Jewish people look like. Still, there are people who argue. So, here are Mosaics by Jewish people of that time and region, depicting Jewish people of that time and region. There's obviously many, many more of them.
