It stands to sense Jesus was a swarthy looking bloke.

Post by Syl on Mon Jan 09, 2017 12:53 pm

So why when we see this image of what he would have looked like it comes a shock?
And why have all the books and bibles I have ever seen portray Jesus to be tall, blonde and blue eyed.....what a myth.

To be fair, every Christian culture has depicted Jesus in its own way. Here's how he looks in Chinese depictions:

Jesus is the lead singer of Nickelback, as a Chinese man.

This is how, he reminds me.... Razz

That's interesting.
I suppose the images that children are fed of what Jesus looked like are modelled on what that child is comfortable with....and that's the image that stays with you till you see the actual reality.

It stands to reason that Jesus was swarthy and dark eyed.

It does, but the image you were always given of him when you were a child stays with you till you think about it sensibly.

He was my favourite contestant in 2004, but then he did a rather questionable version of that song and got voted off. Crying or Very sad

Yeah that was shit. He was just above flat vocally and his vowels were too long.

sunny

JESUS would have had a good suntan,  too...

Considering the part of the world he lived in,  and his outdoors lifestyle..

And sunscreen lotions were yet to be invented.

Cool

He was probably very small in stature too in comparison.
When we went to Israel, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and toured round the places where Jesus grew up and lived, the old buildings (or replicas) especially the doors and openings, were a lot smaller that modern day builds.
So unless Jesus and his fellow men stooped low every time they entered/exited their dwelling places, they must have been much shorter in height than we art.

Oh I do know them...my grandson had one of their songs playing over and over a few years ago.
I told him it was bad cos one of the lines said something about everyone has their own drug dealer on speed dial.....I didn't like that one bit....he thought it was funny. Rolling Eyes

Yes but if you listen to the lyrics in full it's about rock stars. And he's not far wrong.
Lyric video for you. It's quite a clever song tbh.

Unless a Viking had "jumped the fence" somewhere in Mary's ancestry,  I seriously doubt that Jesus had blue eyes, either...

Or else, perhaps there could have been some kind of serious genetic anomaly taking place there,  to produce the Nordic look in that portrayal  ?
