..................You Know What Gripes My Ass Re Jesus? .............

............... is how he is always portrayed as some Western Male Supermodel with perfect skin and trimmed beard.




........... especially when - given that he was of middle eastern birth - he probably looked more like this guy....




....... what else about Jesus are they painting differently I wonder?

I remember seeing a composite-style image years ago of what Jesus, most likely, would've really looked like and yeah, quite similar to the guy in the photo except with a bushier beard. Funny how he seems to have morphed into some kind of Aryan pin-up boy.

Mutt - funny is a word I rarely use with Christianity - NEVER with Catholicism.

I am guessing it has to do with the fact that it is such a "Corporation".

For what I remember of an Arabic description: broad shoulders, ruddy complexion, reddish hair.

Regardless of how he looked like I do find it funny that he's depicted as an Aryan instead of a Semite.

You know that only a white guy can be the saviour. That's just a given.

I have it n good authority that he was a redhead.

Yes I have heard about the Mark of Gilgamesh E.g. red or reddish hair.

He was in fact a Semitic Jew. Look at the Semitic Jews of today, that's pretty much what he fit in with.
