    Just as there were many who were appalled at Him – His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and His form marred beyond human likeness….He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Isaiah 52:14 - 53:1-3

    Are you implying that black people are "marred beyond human likeness"?

    Don't know, but if He was from the Middle East He probably wouldn't have been white.

    It's possible to be semitic and black. They come from hot countries such as Ethiopia, there is a large community there. It was also believed that Moses was black as well.

    in RE for GCSE i was told that there is no mention of Jesus's complexion, as if there was then people wud look at that colour to be the right colour.

    No one really knows what colour complexion he had! Different races have different answers

    I would say he was most probably black, but it was so long ago perhaps they had another race then that we don't even have now? There are so many possibilites I think it's impossible to be certain when its about someone alive so long ago.
