Jesus was a dirty, dirty God?

Jesus was a lot more like you than you think, and a lot less clean cut than this iconic image of him that floats around culture.

You know the image. It’s the one where Jesus is walking like he’s floating in robes of pristine white followed by birds singing some holy little ditty. He’s polished, manicured, and clearly – God.

But despite the Christian belief that Jesus was both fully God and fully man, Jesus was a rather dirty God.

He was the “earthly” son of a carpenter, and life in the first-century was both more lurid and unfinished than our collective religious memory seems to recall. ...

He still touches scarlet, reptile sinners like us to heal us of cancerous sin-sickness, for our heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. So yes, I appreciated your post, John.

Are you seeing any conversions in CA these days?

Well, Barry, or whoever you really are, I use the smartphone app. The app doesn't bump anything up with recent posts so I wasn't aware, until now, that those using computers see things differently.
I'm sorry that I had to burst your little tiny bubble there, Barry, because I'll bet you really had me there. Poor Barry...feel free to give it a go another time though. I wish I could hand you a tissue because I'll bet that had made you feel pretty powerful up until now. Sorry again.

One very good reason why they should resurrect the discussion forums and get away from news stories which are all filled with pretty much the same ol same ol mind numbingly disgusting things

I can understand where he was coming from but the title he chose could not be more disrespectful. I suppose he needed the shock effect for the story to gain any ground within the media outlets.

Neil is basically correct. Jesus was not only a Semite, not lily-white as portrayed in Catholic pictures and statues, or for that matter some "pictures" of Him that circulate in some Protestant churches, but as you gentlemen so ably pointed out, he got his hands dirty -- and also his feet.

Luke 7
44 And turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair.
45 "You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet.
46 "You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume.
47 "For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little."
48 And He said to her, "Your sins have been forgiven."---NASB

Most of the roads weren't paved and feet were going to get dirty, and the rest might not stay all that squeaky clean either, since Jesus and his disciples got plenty of exercise.

So, gentlemen, I like your comments.

Jesus touched lepers in order to heal them; and made clay out of dirt and his own spit, placing this mud on a man's eyes in order to heal him. Besides all the carpentry and stone cutting he must have done when working for His earthly father Joseph. He also washed the disciples' feet.

Of course he got his hands dirty. Unfortunately I'm unable to load the whole article so I just went on the title and what was posted on SA.

The writer, or whoever decided on it, used "dirty,dirty" in the title to grab attention, but his point is valid. If we don't believe that Jesus got His hands dirty so to speak, we don't even begin to understand the total and utter condescension of the incarnation, not to mention the whole point of His life, death, and resurrection. His hands were dirtied so ours could be clean. He was/is the only one who could dirty His hands to take on sin and death, yet remain Holy.

If people imagine Jesus was all white & clean, it's because of idolatrous depictions of Him over the centuries. I bet this never occurred to the blogger.

Those claims which are not grounded in Scripture are not worth making, & what he does use from Scripture is nothing new. I think the writer is just trying to get attention by sounding naughty.

BTW, ancient Jews, like Romans, were evidently keen on bathing, if archaeology is any indication; many ancient mikvehs have been found in Jerusalem. So I wouldn't assume Jesus was all that dirty.

The title CNN used is definitely provocative. It is also interesting that this was written by a Liberty University professor. And it would also be interesting to see what CNN edited.

That said, Sean Harris makes some valid observations about the article and its shortcomings. It is important that we learn to think biblically so that as we confront the world we know "the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ" (2 Co 10:4–5).

I think SA is helping us do that.

I find this article offensive and bordering on blasphemy, suggesting that Christ experienced sickness or had to control His temper. Why has SermonAudio chosen to publish this?
