Who is Jesus?

One thing is for certain, you will not know who Jesus is by looking at pictures that people have painted or sketched of Jesus through the years. Here are a few examples of how people have portrayed Jesus.

Jesus 2

Possibly the closest to what a man who lived in the part of the world in which Jesus lived would have looked like.


When I look at what people have done with pictures and renderings of Jesus it sort of turns my stomach.

Exodus 20:4

4 “You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea.

I believe that Jesus looks like each of us as His hands and feet we serve those in the world around us. My fear is that people are looking for a Jesus that looks like these depictions and not the real Jesus. Jesus is God and trying to draw him while not having seen him would be a hard task. To say the least, I don’t really like depictions of traditional Jesus. If someone does a drawing of Jesus from their study of Scripture that is great but I don’t like the bobble heads, cheesus etc. at all.
