  • It is common to portray Jesus in the racial characteristics of a country. This is because God is God of all, not the pure, not the racially pure (think of Jesus with the Samaritan Woman at the Well), not with the ritually pure, (think of the woman with the issue of blood who believed, if she touched the hem of Jesus's garment, she would be healed); not the elite (the big problem in Jesus's time).
  • God does not play favourites with colour, all are his children
