“Certainly, of course it does,” he reported, including that Jesus was portrayed in another way in countries close to the earth. He was often in contact with Anglican Church leaders from all around the world, he claimed, who did not portray Jesus as White.
“You go into their churches and you never see a White Jesus — you see a Black Jesus, or Chinese Jesus, or a Center Eastern Jesus — which is of course the most exact.
“You see a Fijian Jesus — you see Jesus portrayed in as numerous means as there are cultures, languages and understandings.”
Welby added that the representations of Jesus have been not, however, “who we worship” but fairly served as a “reminder of the universality of the God who grew to become fully human.”
“We’re heading to be on the lookout incredibly diligently, and placing them in context and viewing if they all should really be there,” he said.
“The query [about whether they should all be there] arises, of system it does, and we’ve noticed that all about the globe.”
