Iconoclasts

 

Who has seen the veil of Veronica?

The image of dark eyes dark skin Jesus?

What happened in the Byzantine Empire?

The old icons and images forbidden.

 

This is not the one we told you about.

Blue eyed blonde skin a different Jesus.

We will not worship will only venerate.

Look upon with feelings of deep respect.

 

This is the one painted over with white

“Whitewashing” Jesus from His Jewish roots.

The European Jesus here today

or the 1st century Jesus we pray.

 

His message was deeper than savior too.

He spoke of the Kingdom of God and you.
