At the time this 1987 book was published, William Mosley was "a scholar, former pastor and investigator with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"In short, if there was an assimilation of Black peoples among the Israelites, and there was; and if Jesus was an Israelite, and He was; then Jesus might very well have inherited genes from Ethiopian ancestors, which would have made him Black." (Pg. 7)
"It was obvious (to Eurocentric Christians) that no Black Jesus would reign over this world. He had to be White." (Pg. 14)
"This identification of Christ with a typical White appearance, therefore, excludes His identification with Blacks. At the same time it reinforces notions and feelings of superiority among those whose physical appearance most approximates the prevailing conception." (Pg. 39)
"The impact of a White image of Jesus has been devastating on the Black community. It has reduced the number of Black men who worship and the self-determination of the remaining congregation to believe they have control over their lives." (Pg. 64)

First, let me start by saying, I love everyone white, black, barney purple and kermit the frog green, but the facts are facts and based on the bible's description of Jesus, when he appeared to John on the Island of Patmos in the book of revelation. John's description of Jesus and I quote: HIS HEAD AND HAIRS WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL AND HIS FEET WAS LIKE UNTO FINE BRASS AS IF IT WAS BURNED IN A FURNACE. Okay now for the intrepretation: Jesus was clothed in a white robe with only his feet uncovered, now you be the judge, when brass or any other metal is burned, not even biblically speaking, scientifically speaking, OXIDATION DOES OCCUR does it not? Okay, here's another example, any of you non-cooks out there ever burn a pot, I have, now that pot doesn't turn white, it turns even darker than the original color doesn't it. And, as for John Bart-Plange's idiot statement about Jesus could not have been exclusively black while all his ancestors were white. Well, that's true, so I'm taking it a step further by saying that not only was Jesus an Asiatic black man, but so was his ancestors all the way down to yes you guessed it Adam. And here is also another example, remember Mary and Joseph's attempt to hide from King Herod, they fled into EGYPT, which is and will always be apart of Africa no matter what the historians say. Now how could they have hidden from Herod if they had white skin? I don't think so. And for those people who say that color isn't important, well does flesh have color on it? For those who deny the color of Jesus, denies that he is come in the flesh and the scripture clearly states:
1 John chapter 4:2-3
"Hereby know ye the spirit of God.

In a bid to raise the low estate of Black people,
this book seeks, albeit very unconvincingly, to
prove that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was Black.

The book begins by rhetorically stating that Jesus
was Black and that white supremacists, in their
long, time-tired efforts to cast the Black man in
a negative light intentionally painted Jesus White, beginning with the paintings of Michaelangelo.

The book hinges its Biblical evidence on three (3) main persons in the genealogy of Jesus Christ as given in Luke 3 and Matthew 1. These are:
(1) Tamar, Judah's daughter-in-law whom Judah, in playing the harlot, unknowingly slept with (Genesis 38).
(2) Rahab the harlot who hid the two spies sent by Joshua into Jericho (Joshua 2), and
(3) Bathsheba, King David's wife, whom David took to be his wife after scheming the death of her husband Uriah the Hittite.

ALL these three cannot be EXCLUSIVELY proven to have been Black. The evidence that the author adduces from the Bible is only circumstantial. In fact, a good concordance will show us that these people were not Black at all.

Even if only these three (3) persons (as argued by the author) were Black in a long genealogy of so many generations of White people, spanning from Adam through Abel, Shem, Abraham, David all the way down to Joseph and Mary (Jesus' parents), how could Jesus have been Black? Also, Jesus could not have been Black in isolation. If He was Black, then His people, the Jews, and indeed all Israel (including the supposedly lost 10 tribes) should also have been Black, and if still on earth today, must retain evidence of Israelitish and Jewish rites and worship from of old.
