If I were to ask you who this picture is of, you would no doubt say, "Jesus." People often see Jesus in the clouds, or in a stain on a window, or who knows what. I often wonder how they know it is Jesus. Strictly from artists' pictures, most people would recognize Jesus as being European, long brown hair parted in the middle with a short beard that also is parted in the middle. However, there is no record in the Bible of what Jesus looked like. Since the Jews were forbidden to make any images, there were no artists or sculptors
WHAT DID JESUS LOOK LIKE?
in Judea in Jesus' day. There were no cameras, so, how do we know what Jesus looked like?
British scientists, assisted by Israeli archeolgists, have re-created what they believe is the most accurate image of a typical Galilean Jew in the time of Jesus. This image, though not exactly what Jesus looked like, is a lot closer than the pictures we typically see depicting Jesus.
