THAT’S NOT JESUS!

The picture you see above is not Jesus. It is simply not what He looked/looks like. The Bible only gives us a physical description of Jesus AFTER He is glorified.

However, using clues based solely upon Scripture, we can see for sure that the man pictured above is not what Jesus looked/looks like.

 

1. He had no form or comeliness.

 

Isaiah 53:3  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Jesus was not physically attractive or had any special features. The man pictured above would stand out in a crowd of Jewish rabbis. This is not what Jesus looked like.

 

2. Thick beard.

The man pictured above has a very thin beard.

Scripture says:

Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Jesus’ beard was long enough to pluck it out from the cheeks.

 

 

3. Dark skin.

 

Jesus was and is Jewish. (Revelation 5:5, Matthew 1) A Jewish man seldom has light brown hair, and white skin and blue eyes.

 

4. Long hair.

 

The Bible is clear, men are not to have long hair.

1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

 

Do you think the perfect Man would have had long hair, thus going against nature and confusing the sexes? God forbid!

 

Jesus did not look unique from His followers, or any other Jewish rabbi during his days. When Judas betrayed Jesus, he had to point Jesus out from His disciples.

 

What Jesus looks like now.

 

Revelation 1:12-17

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
