Look at the variety of images of Jesus below. We do not have any eyewitness physical descriptions of Jesus; however, since he was Jewish there are some generalizations that can be made from historical studies. The Real Face of Jesus provides information and a picture of what Jesus looked like as a Jew living in Judea in the first century C.E. Basically, as a first century peasant he would have been about 5’1, 110 lbs. with short hair (lice was a problem, so long flowing hair at the time was not practical). What do you think about this article? Do some additional research to see if you can find some other images of Jesus to share. You can even explore the many different Buddha images as well. Are these two situations the same? Why or why not? Finally, is there any importance to a conversation about what a religious figure looked like?
