What was Jesus' skincolour?
Just wondering: if Jesus would show up today, how would people react to Him? I guess it depends on the location. Over the centuries our idea of His appearance has changed. Most likely his skin was of an olive/bronze complexion, as was fairly common in the Middle East some 2000 years ago. No, there are no biblical references to His looks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_appearance_of_Jesus
Why most of His followers think He was white?
Because most of His followers are.
Yes, Jesus was 'a foreigner'.
That's why it's so strange so many people call themselves
'followers of Christ.'
So, what are your argumented ideas on the subject?
