Picture of Jesus

There have been a couple of TV “special reports” lately on what Jesus looked like.  I have in my files (somewhere) a picture of Jesus on the front cover of Popular Mechanics magazine that I like.  It was a forensic anthropologist’s rendering of what a typical Jewish man of the first century would look like.  Olive complexion, dark, short hair with a bit of a beard, probably about 5’, 8-10’’ tall  Nothing like the popular “pictures” that keep popping up on pizza’s and in the clouds… much less the ones that appear on most every country church in my old South.

Well, here’s a framed picture of my Lord that I love best:

“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”  I Peter 1:8

  1. I have always had a bit of a struggle with the white-skinned, blond-haired Jesus that some artist/s conjured up somewhere along the line. You provide a much clearer picture of our Savior! Thank you, Dun!!
