Happy Birthday Jesus, and Happy New Year to you

Language Translation Available – see Top of Left Column.

I give you my respect for your personal beliefs during this holiday season and start of the new year. As for me, I am a true believer in Jesus Christ and therefore wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Pictured below are a few nativity scenes shown in diverse cultures. Below that is one of the many images you can find representing how Jesus Christ looked as a young man. I found this one searching for “middle eastern Jesus,” since Mary gave birth to him in the middle east, Bethlehem.

That by itself does not prove that Jesus was middle eastern, though. For example, If an African couple moved to China and had a baby, would their baby be Chinese? No. So the same can be true for Jesus. It might be interesting to look at all of the different ways Jesus is portrayed.

Thanks, enjoy the holidays and I pray for God to bless you and your loved ones always, amen.
