Not so long ago I took it upon myself to chastise the Fox news historical researchers for getting ready to publish a picture of Christ with blue-eyes. Now it looks like it could have been. But I’m not ready to give up my thesis completely yet. I was assuming a progression in humans from an original dark skin to a lighter skin as they moved into Europe. We see from our own observation that dark skinned are less likely, by quite a large ratio, to have blue eyes. And we learned in genetics that brown eyed humans may have both blue and brown eyed children while blue eyed people can never have brown eyed children indicating a kind of dependable progression in homo sapiens. So I’m thinking that if Jesus did have blue eyes, someone would have at least made mention of it in the gospels. BUT BUT BUT how many times do we see color by name mentioned ever, anywhere, in the scriptures?
New thought. Did the humans of that age see anything in real color or just shades? I wonder. They seemed to have no individualized names for colors. It’s interesting that women in our own age dream in color while men generally don’t. Hmmm
Get back to me on this. : ) Lee AKA Cornhusk
