“Indeed, of system it does,” he stated, introducing that Jesus was portrayed in a different way in nations around the earth. He was routinely in touch with Anglican Church leaders from around the planet, he reported, who did not portray Jesus as White.
“You go into their church buildings and you really don’t see a White Jesus — you see a Black Jesus, or Chinese Jesus, or a Center Japanese Jesus — which is of study course the most exact.
“You see a Fijian Jesus — you see Jesus portrayed in as a lot of ways as there are cultures, languages and understandings.”
Welby added that the representations of Jesus were not, nevertheless, “who we worship” but instead served as a “reminder of the universality of the God who grew to become thoroughly human.”
“We are heading to be hunting very carefully, and placing them in context and observing if they all ought to be there,” he reported.
“The issue [about whether they should all be there] occurs, of study course it does, and we’ve viewed that all around the planet.”
