Discussion for Revelation 1:15

  • If it says like brass its yellowish in tone made to glow in fire..isn 't it like a reddish orange tone? So no shoes and the heat on the skin well turn yellowish toned skin "glow "...lambs were out in the wild so not washed to a bleaching white like we see on cartoons..also wavy curly hair and soft. Eyes like fire could mean copperish gold my father had this and looks very much like fire in the sun , hazel even. So I mean flipping the coin over it could very well be a lighter tone not necessarily the pinkishwhite but yes a Mediterranean yellowish tanned tone of the skin. With that wavy soft bleachy Brown hair....just saying...not to goo to extremes...The brass put to glow in the fire well give you a reddish orange brown kind of life your skin turns when you walk barefoot onto hot concrete on a summer day trying to get to the pool he he
  • Brandon for verse 15
    People say it doesnt matter but it does ,because we was given a picture of christ white with long brown hair.mainly to black slaves that was shown a picture of christ portraying the image of who they was enslaved to..good timing from whoever made that image..and the so called jewish who say they are gods chosen people resemble that image but don carry the curses god put on his people but the negroes fullfill the curses
  • Gyenyame Flavious for verse 15
    A feet which looks like brass is not different from the hands. Woolly hair pure negroid features. Amen
  • This proves Yahshua aka Jesus was and still is a Black man no other.
  • I don't think this has anything to do with Christ's ethnicity. This was a christ I believe in his natural state, other than the way he looked while walking here on earth. It's to the description of christ during the transfiguration in Matthew. His face shown like the sun, eyes were like fire, his feet were like bronze that was made to glow in a fire. I believe this was Jesus in his natural state as he would have looked in his world, heaven. After the transfiguration, Jesus went back do looking like a normal man. No mention what his ethnicity or what he looked like.
  • Tremise for verse 15
    I believe the lord is trying to show us through John Christs ethnicity Jesus was a Hebrew in the flesh,when he walked the earth.
