Default The Real Face Of Jesus : Forensic Expert Reconstructs How He Would Have Looked

Quote:


In many religious artworks, Jesus appears as a white, studious-looking man with flowing, straight hair.

He is never directly described in the Bible, so artists have constructed an idea of him over the centuries.

But the reality would have been very different, a forensics expert has said - creating a face using skeletal remains of men from the era. .

Medical artist Dr Richard Neaves reconstructed a face of Jesus using three skulls of Middle Eastern Jews in the Galilee area of northern Israel at the time.

In one scene in the Gospels, in the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus is described as looking like his disciples - so Dr Neaves constructed what he believed to be a typical male face from the area at that time, using forensic techniques.

He also used skeletal remains to work out a likely build for Jesus.

Dr Neave and his team said that he would have had a beard and short hair, as most Jews of the period did.

They also hypothesised that he would be more weather-beaten than he is typically portrayed, as he had worked outdoors, as a carpenter.

Truth is no one knows how he looked. What they can see if how some Jewish people looked back then. Whats true is Jesus would be much darker then depicted in European photos. He wasnt a fan of long hair either so yeah some of that photo might actually reflect him. Besides he was only half Jewish. The other half was well...kinda like Hercules lol.

Exclamation Seek first the Kingdom of G_d

It never ceases to amaze me how so many people even inside the Christian church have anti-Semitic views even when it comes to Yeshua (Jesus). Millions do not, however there are those like a deacon, in a church, I once worked with. The mere idea that Yeshua (Jesus) was an actual Jew stuck in his throat so badly he could hardly admit it. The subject would come up at work sometimes when things were slow on the night shift and you could visually see the struggle on his face when the subject was discussed. He would make attempts to deny it only to begrudgingly have to admit it. How he became a deacon in a church with such views is beyond me.

The amount of anti-Semitism in some denominations of "Christian" Churches is not biblically based and should be excised from all of Christianity! Where in the Bible did Yeshua say to hate or despise the Jews? He instead said he came FIRST for the Jews and he also said a man has no greater Love than to lay down his life for another. We are to love the Jews as we love ourselves and to seek for them what we would seek for ourselves. Not the smallest part of G_d's word has changed nor shall it ever for He is the Everlasting and Unchanging G_d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob unlike the god Allah who changes his mind and word constantly throughout the Quran and Hadiths! All Honor, Glory, and Praise to the the G_d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who was and is and is to come!

When men place their own avarice and ego over G_d's word they raise themselves over G_d just as Satan sought to do! Satan was the anointed guardian cherub on the holy mount of G_d. He was the most beautiful of all the cherubs but he corrupted himself; the created sought to be equal to or greater than the creator. Many men in their denial and blindness to G_d seek the same thing; thus sealing their own fates. They may flourish for a season but their end is the same upon the trash heap of history in utter destruction the same as Satan. Seek first the Kingdom of G_d for to serve self is self destruction.

It is not a big deal how Yeshua looked like besides historical inquisitiveness, his teachings being of actual importance. Nevertheless, human beings are vain and place undue emphasis on looks, so the depiction of Jesus as a blue eyed blonde does seem to be indicative of inherent anti-semitism, the motive being to distance Christianity from its origins.
