5 feet, 1 inch. 110 Pounds.

What did Jesus look like?  I don’t know.  Nobody does.  But we all have a picture in our minds of what is possible.  For me, he is tall, has light skin, long brown hair, and no muscle.  I don’t want this picture in my head, but it’s there.  Lots of pictures, posters, t-shirts, flannel graphs, and Simpsons episodes put it there.    Maybe it would help if we had something a bit closer to the truth.

Read Justin Taylor’s post on what an average man in Jesus’ culture may have looked like in his early 30s.
