My God, you’re sexy!

I’m getting a little ahead of myself, perhaps this should be more of an Easter post. I mean, it’s still before Christmas, Jesus hasn’t even been born. However, the sign down the street keeps telling me “Jesus is the reason for the season!” so I’m going to take liberties and skip ahead to grown-up Jesus. (Not my best logic.)

I know why the Church has always portrayed Jesus as a handsome guy. What better way to fill the pews, right? All the women want him and all the men want to be him… something like that anyway.

As Popular Mechanics illustrated over ten years ago, if Jesus was a real person, he would have looked more like this.

The artist emphasizes that his re-creation is simply that of an adult man who lived in the same place and at the same time as Jesus. As might well be expected, not everyone agrees.

Jesus would have only been about 5 feet tall and his olive toned skin would have been dark and aged from working out in the sun. It is very unlikely that he would have looked like Hollywood’s version of him over the years. For example, Robert Powell, who is the blue-eyed Adonis at the top of this post.

Or Ted Neeley, in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Anyway, the whole point of this post is to show you my new favourite Jesus.
