Nine Oldest Paintings of Jesus in the World
Although images of Jesus are relatively common throughout Christian churches, many ancient portrayals of Jesus have either been censored or radically altered in a determined effort to promulgate ethnic or political supremacy.
Images of Jesus tend to show ethnic characteristics similar to those of the culture in which the image has been created.

Wikipedia adroitly avoids mentioning that Caucasian oligarchs were the very first to finance a transformation of the images of Jesus into portrayals displaying ethnic characteristics similar to their own. As you’re about to witness, many centuries prior to that Caucasian transformation, Jesus was already revered around the world as a melanated being.
The oldest existent paintings of Jesus date back to the late 2nd to 4th century. However, the oldest images of the Hebrews are even more ancient, having been created over three hundred years before the birth of Christ. Any seeming controversy regarding the historical ethnicity of Jesus is easily resolved simply by referencing the ancient paintings of the Hebrews, a few of which have been included here for your examination.
9. Christ and The Disciples
Christ and The Disciples depicts Thomas touching the wound of Jesus with his finger so he could believe in Christ’s resurrection, while the rest of the disciples look on.
Coptic Museum, Cairo, Egypt
8. Christ in Majesty
Christ in Majesty with symbols of The Evangelists. An illumination from a Castilian Moralia in Job. Created by Monk Florencio. Biblioteca Nacional, Madrid, Spain. Painted circa 945 AD
7. Christ at the Second Coming
In Christ at the Second Coming, Jesus is standing on red clouds (representing the dawn), dressed in golden robes labeled with the monogram “I”*. He holds the scroll of the Law in his left hand.
* There is no letter “J” in either the Hebrew or Greek alphabet. The original King James Bible had no “J”s in it. Jesus = Iesus. Thus the monogram is the letter “I”.
The basilica of Santi Cosma e Damiano is located in the Forum of Vespasian, also known as the Forum of Peace. In 1632, Pope Urban VIII ordered the restoration of the basilica. So perhaps it is historically accurate to suggest that Jesus was the very first “Urban legend.” (smile) Basilica of Santi Cosma e Damiano, Rome, Italy. Created 526-530 AD
6. The Raising of Lazarus
The Raising (or Resurrection) of Lazarus is a miracle-based painting. Jesus brings Lazarus back to life four days after his burial. Catacomb of Via Latina, Cubiculum 0, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 400 AD
5. Adoration of the Magi
This fresco is believed to be the oldest depiction of the three Magi. It was created around the mid-third century and appears on an arch in the Roman catacombs. The image is simply drawn and shows three identically sized men, in similar outfits, each carrying a gift to present to what appears to be a melanated mother and child. Catacomb of Priscilla, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 350 AD
4. Christ Among the Apostles
This painting of Christ Among the Apostles is virtually NEVER shown to the public. Perhaps, that’s because Jesus is definitively portrayed as melanated AND he’s seated amongst melanted disciples. Stringent efforts have been made to alter this painting and others like it . . .
Unbeknownst to the public, a covert campaign has been directed towards whitewashing the ancient images of Jesus. According to ethnocentrists, Jesus and his disciples were not melanated. Rather, we are supposed to believe their faces were “dirty” and “grimy” and need to be “cleaned”. Catacombs of St. Domitilla, Crypt of Ampliatus, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 350 AD
3. The Good Shepherd
The image of Jesus as the Good Shepherd was an especially popular motif in the early Christian centuries. It was based upon several biblical passages including the 23rd Psalm and the sayings of Jesus. Catacombs of St. Callixtus, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 350 AD
2. The Good Shepherd
This painting of The Good Shepherd is older than the previous one. In this image, we see a more mature Jesus. His face is clearly portrayed as black. His hair is short and curly. His legs are depicted as melanated. Jesus is surrounded by wild beasts and stands above them as master over them. This image imparts the moral imperative that Christ is the force of mastery which conquers the animal nature in man. Catacombs of St. Callixtus, Vault of Lucina, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 250 AD
1. The Healing of the Paralytic
The Healing of the Paralytic is said to be the oldest painting of Jesus in the world. The face of Jesus is definitively black. His hair is short and curly and his legs are light brown. Christ is healing a bed-ridden man, who then has the strength to carry his bed on his back and walk.
This painting was discovered in 1921 on a wall in the Dura-Europos Church in Syria, which is the oldest known church in the world. Today, the painting is kept at the Yale University Gallery of Fine Arts as part of the Dura-Europos collection along with other frescoes found at the church. Dura-Europos House Church, Dura-Europos, Syria. Painted circa 235 AD
Editor’s Note: Why is the United States conducting war in Syria? The Satanic oligarchs are desperately trying to destroy all historical documentation of a melanated messiah.

Samson and the Lion
Samson, the strongest man in the world, battles a lion. The spiritual guideline is clear: the greatest strength is derived from conquering one’s animal nature.

Jonah Thrown Into the Sea

During the sea voyage, a huge storm arises and the sailors learn that Jonah is to blame because he disobeyed God. Jonah admits his guilt and states that if he is thrown overboard the storm will cease. The sailors recognize their imperative duty and for the safety of the crew, they throw Jonah out of the boat. Jonah is miraculously saved as a result of being swallowed by a large fish, (commonly interpreted as a whale). Catacomb of Saints Marcellino and Pietro, Rome, Italy. Painted circa 300 AD

Wikipedia’s Dirty Little Secret
You might be wondering why the historical paintings we’ve shown you are not featured by Wikipedia. Especially in Wikipedia’s Depiction of Jesus.
Jimmy Wales, is the co-founder of Wikipedia. There is something extremely important which is omitted from Mr Wales’ online biography . . . .
Jimmy Wales was born in Huntsville, Alabama. During 1971-72, I toured around the world with Up With People. One of the towns we visited was Huntsville, Alabama. Huntsville was SO racist, it was the only town during the entire year, where the coordinators had difficulty placing black members of the cast with host families.
In other words, Wikipedia’s dirty little secret is: The founder of Wikipedia grew up in one of the most racist towns in the entire United States. Furthermore, Jimmy Wales attended an exclusive segregated prep school. So during his formative years, (despite the glowing words of praise in his bio to the contrary), Jimmy Wales was raised to consider black people as inferiors. We seriously doubt, he’s had ANY experience interacting with melanated people except as gardeners, maids and butlers.
Wikipedia Wants You to Believe Melanated Images of Jesus are Cultural Outliers
Compare the paintings we’ve shown you with the ones offered by Wikipedia and witness for yourself that when it comes to Jesus, Wikipedia promotes a racially skewed perspective. They want you to believe melanted images of Jesus are cultural outliers. However, you have witnessed definitive proof that, for thousands of years, Europeans have been worshiping a melanted Jesus. And many continue to do so to this very day . . .
. . . Follow the Money
Sadly, the founder of Wikipedia was raised to be a racist. This affects all of us. When ethnocentrists rise to positions of social influence, images and communications that foster social unity are intentionally censored. Wikipedia is not alone in this regard. Follow the money and you’ll discover MANY organizations around the world have a vested financial interest in promulgating the racist Caucasian Jesus paradigm.
Now You Know
In a world riddled with corporate corruption and malevolent misdirection, it’s certainly no surprise that authentic images of Jesus are difficult to locate on the internet.
Congratulations on finding this webpage despite the efforts of the racist censors at Google to hide it. We hope you’ve enjoyed Nine Oldest Paintings of Jesus in the World.
