Puzzle of the Day – The Black Last Supper

Traditionally, most Christian art depicts religious icons like Jesus and the apostles as white. This is because most of this art originated in white European countries, where the dominant races were white. Just as the Bible says that God created man in his own image, societies tend to depict God as looking like them. It helps people relate to Jesus if he looks like he could be an uncle or neighbor.

What many people don’t think about is that most of the Bible took place in Middle Eastern and North African countries like Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria. Therefore, it is very likely that Jesus and his apostles were actually not white, but instead black or Arabic. Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day, The Black Last Supper puzzle by artist Bev Lopez, acknowledges this.

A supper is a supper, no matter who you share it with, and the significance of the moment can only increase if you feel spiritually connected with the people of the table. A better looking body, a taller body, darker hair or lighter skin doesn’t make any difference.

Get The Black Last Supper 1000 Piece 20″ x 27″ jigsaw puzzle from Puzzle Warehouse, assemble it, and it will remind you from time to time of the most important moments in your life, the people you most care about and what makes them so special to you: their soul. The significance of the image goes beyond its obvious religious connection and purpose and teaches a lesson everybody should know. Judging people based on their physical attributes or on any other similar feature is not only meaningless but also harmful.
