“Yes, of course it is,” he said, adding that Jesus is portrayed differently in countries around the world. He said that he was in regular contact with leaders of the Anglican Church from around the world who did not show Jesus as White.
“You enter their churches and you do not see a White Jesus – you see a Black Jesus or a Chinese Jesus or a Middle Eastern Jesus – which is of course the most correct.
“You see Jesus in Fiji – you see that Jesus is depicted as much as cultures, languages, and understandings.”
Welby added that Jesus’ representations are not “who we worship,” but rather “reminds us of the universality of the fully human God.”
“We will look very carefully and put them in the content and see if they should all be there.” Said.
“Question [about whether they should all be there] it turns out, of course it is, and we’ve seen it all over the world. “
