Jesus, the skinny white model…

The Lord's Supper for models

A few articles i’ve stumbled upon recently.

Article from the American Spectator thinks that 2006 might be the worst year for Jesus since 33 A.D. with reports that he was a stoner and the release of the Da Vinci Code movie.

In Italy, someone’s taking Jesus to court. He’s being charged with impersonation!

The above photo of the Lord’s supper by fashion designer Marithe Francois Girbaud was banned by Milan. I’m not sure why people were so offended. Can’t skinny white models come to Jesus as well? Sometimes we think Jesus only came for the outcast, the lame, and the poor. He also came for the popular, the socially beautiful, and the rich (ie. Matthew the tax collector).

and to go a bit further… if the world was nothing but a bunch of skinny white models (to sterotype, I know every individual is much more than that),

wouldn’t Jesus, as the God who reaches down to live and die amongst us, also have come as a skinny, white, model?

    interesting perspective on the picture. I’m not sure how I weigh in on it, but you got me thinking.

    I thought it was interesting too… and not just for it’s shock value but at an artistic level. Most comments I had read from Christians on the picture were completely negative… that was my attempt at redeeming it…

    I think it’s a cool picture and you’re right, Jesus suffered and died for everyone not just the scum of the earth but also those of us who “think” we’re alright.

    Thanks for dropping by Albert, definitely. it’s so easy to ignore those who might be seemingly well off… no one truly thrives without God
