“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48
If you think the cliche images of the apostle Paul are an accurate portrayal of what he really looked like… think again. While we don’t have a description of many people in the Bible, Paul is one of the exceptions. According to Europeanized Christianity, the apostle Paul looked like an elderly bearded white man. Here’s an image of “Paul” that was posted on Christianity Today without any regard to Biblical accuracy:
According to the Bible, the following incident occurred, which gives us a very specific location to reference for Paul’s appearance:
Egypt is located in Africa for those that don’t know. And BEFORE Greeks, Romans, and other Europeans began invading and mixing with Africans over the last couple thousand years, Egyptians depicted themselves in the following manner:
If we have our Common Sense Caps on we can clearly see that the man in the first picture would NEVER EVER be mistaken for an Egyptian. That guy would be sun burned to death or have a severe case of melanoma, which is the problem those Jew-ish European converts are having in Israel right now.
More Confirmation On Paul’s Appearance
In addition to the above overwhelming evidence that Paul was definitely not European in appearance, the Roman historian Tacitus (58AD – 120AD) lived during Paul’s lifetime (circa 5AD – 67AD) and he had the following to say:
“…A few authorities hold that in the reign of Isis the surplus population of Egypt was evacuated to neighboring lands under the leadership of Hierosolymus and Judas. Many assure us that the Jews are descended from those Ethiopians who were driven by fear and hatred to emigrate from their home country when Cepheus was king. There are some who say that a motley collection of landless Assyrians occupied a part of Egypt, and then built cities of their own, inhabiting the lands of the Hebrews and the nearer parts of Syria. Others again find a famous ancestry for the Jews in the Solymi who are mentioned with respect in the epics of Homer: this tribe is supposed have founded Jerusalem and named it after themselves.” – Tacitus, Histories 5.2
According to the Bible, Asshur came out of the Cushite (black Africans) empire known as Babylon. Asshur then went on to found Assyria, which is where Assyrians come from. No matter where we look, the facts keep leading back to Paul being a man of color connected to Africa.
According to the Bible and this guy:
Paul looked EXACTLY like these guys:

“O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.” – Jeremiah 16:19
