Fellow Semites

“This Easter, I can’t help but wonder, what would our church and society look like if we just remembered that Jesus was brown? If we were confronted with the reality that the body hung on the cross was a brown body: one broken, tortured, and publicly executed by an oppressive regime.”
-Robyn Whitaker, "Jesus wasn't white: he was a a brown-skinned Middle Eastern Jew. Here is why it matters."
