Where's the controversy?
Which resembled current day Palestinians. Look at the countries they were from.

This is what, biblical and historically, people from the Middle East looked like during Jesus' time.

Personally, I feel like the outcry from this would reach epic proportions and be legendary. Like BIG.
Is your intent to start a racial issue, about Jesus? I think most people are fully aware of what skin color middle eastern people have. I think the only outcry would be someone going into someone else's church and messing with it, just like someone coming into your home and changing things around. It will be a great day when skin color isn't an issue on every conceivable topic.
