Above is “Black Madonna”. The portrait above depicts Mary and Jesus depicted with darker skin. How could this be when we were mainly taught to believe Jesus Christ was a certain color (mainly from the images and paintings shown throughout the Roman Catholic Church).

Check out a few of the different depictions of Jesus from around the world and post your thoughts.
