What did Jesus look like?

Open 1Cor11-14 Verse 14
Does not even nature itself teach you, that if a man

have long hair, it is a dishonor to him?

As Johnson observed, "The fact of short hair for men and

long hair for women is a divine suggestion in nature itself.

F29 It is quite evident throughout this whole paragraph

that Paul is talking about "hair," not clothes! If such is not

the case, such a verse as this is totally out of place. The

judgment of history as well as the New Testament

confirms Paul's words here are true. People may deny it

if they please; but the sacred text and the usage of centuries

are against any such denial.

NASB 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that

 if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him

Top Concern Is

We are to imitate The Apostle And Jesus which

Jesus Imitates His God, His Creator and Father.

1 Corinthians 11:1-16 

(1)    Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. 

(2)    2 Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly 

to the traditionsjust as I delivered them to you. 

(3)    3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and

(4)    the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ

4 Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces 

his head

5 But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying

 disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head

is shaved . 

6 For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off;

but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved,

let her cover her head. 

7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory 

of God; but the woman is the glory of man

8 For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man

9 for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for t

he man's sake

Therefore * the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head,

 because of the angels

11 However, in the Lordneither is woman independent of mannor is man

 independent of woman

12 For as the woman originates from the manso also the man has his birth 

through the woman; and all things originate from God

13 Judge for yourselves *: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her

head uncovered ? 

14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man 

has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 

15 but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? 

For her hair is given to her for a covering

16 But if one is inclined to be contentious,

we have no other practicenor have the churches of God.

question 1-What did Jesus look like?
question 2-What was daily life like in Jesus' day?

1. What did Jesus look like?

Traditional View: Man with flowing light-brown hair, fair skin, and a neat beard
In the Gospels, there is no mention of what Jesus looked like. Jesus' appearance in images through the centuries has varied according to different artistic and historical traditions and the artists' conceptions. In 20th-century 
America, the image most commonly associated with Jesus has been Walter Sallman's 1940 painting "Head of Christ," above.

Beliefnet Highlight: Gallery of images of Jesus through the centuries.

Non-Traditional View: Short, slight, shaggily bearded man with dark hair, skin, and eyes
There are no contemporary physical descriptions of Jesus, but scholars think he probably looked like a typical first-century Galilean peasant or craftsman: dark hair, skin, and eyes; short; slight; and shaggily bearded.

"What diference does it make, what he looked like? Even if we had a photograph of him, the important thing is, will you be able to recognize Jesus with your heart?"
