The picture used in the article entitled "Jesus and the Rich Young Man" really should be evaluated as it's not historically correct . The picture was created in 1879 and at the very least hints Jesus was somehow in China. Facts. This story took place during the first century moreover in the Christian Bible New Testament it say in Matthew 19:1 "...he (Jesus) went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan." and in verse 16 of the same chapeter says "...a man came up to him (Jesus, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do to have...". In other words, the setting for the rich young man that approached Christ took place in Judea which is Israel. The audience in that day was composed almost exclusively of Jews. My concern is that a novice who pulls up this article will look at the picture and think from looking at the picture that the setting of this story was in Asia.

I hope this helps and love the site!

I'm not sure what you'd like to see changed. Do you want the picture removed? Do you want something explicit in the caption that states "Jesus was not actually in China"? Personally, I don't think the picture implies he was in China; the caption states it's a Chinese depiction of the story. Hoof Hearted (talk) 13:57, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
