Thought you might like this. sort of cute.


There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

He called everyone "brother".
He liked Gospel Music.
He couldn't get a fair trial.

But, then, there were 3, equally good, arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

He went into His Father's business.
He lived at home, until he was 33.
He was sure his Mother was a virgin, and, his mother was sure he was God.

But, then, there were 3, equally good, arguments that Jesus was Italian:

He talked with his hands.
He had wine with every meal.
He used olive oil.

But, then, there were 3, equally good, arguments that Jesus was a
Californian:

He never cut his hair.
He walked around barefoot, all the time.
He started a new religion.

But, then, there were, 3 equally, good arguments that Jesus was Irish:

He never got married.
He was, always, telling stories.
He loved green pastures.

But, the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:

He fed a crowd, at a moment's notice, when there was no food.
He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men, who just didn't
get it.
And, even when he was dead, he had to get up, because there was more work to
do.

this is fascinating...

I was also thinking about Jesus' eating utensils...is there a possibility they were made of wood similar to chopsticks?? Or did he eat with his fingers:wavey:
and what about footwear...didn't Jesus wear sandals??? could they have an Asian connections as well??

is there anywhere on the internet i can learn more about this archaelogical dig or about mei-chung?? i love asian culture...particularly chinese...there is an American writer, Amy Tan who writes all about ancient China, the customs, myths and family connections ..absolutely mesmerizing.
