What Jesus May Have Actually Looked Like
The Bible doesn’t describe Jesus’ physical appearance and much modern evidence indicates that he looked nothing like the way he’s been portrayed over the centuries.

And without skeleton remains or other body parts that might have Jesus’ DNA, researchers had to rely on forensic anthropology. A team of British scientists and Israeli archeologists used the same methods that are commonly used to solve crimes when they created this image. Is this what Jesus really looked like?

What Richard III May Have Actually Looked Like
It wasn’t possible to recreate what Richard III might have looked like until 2012. That’s because his body was lost to history soon after he passed away. In 2012, a research team looked through some clues that brought them to a parking lot.

There they found his body and it was exhumed. There were a lot of members from Dundee University who helped bring us this image. There aren’t realistic paintings from when he was alive, so researchers had to use historical records.

What Cleopatra May Have Actually Looked Like
Cleopatra was well-educated and could speak multiple languages, which made her the dominant ruler during her co-regencies. She was also regarded as an exotic beauty that harnessed the powers of seduction, so she was also known for her romantic relations and alliances with rulers from other empires.

Considering her reputation, it’s no surprise that 3D artists wanted to use existing portraiture and sculptures to determine what this Egyptian queen really looked like. Cleopatra’s prominent nose and masculine features might come as a surprise to some who picture her the way Elizabeth Taylor portrayed her in film.

Jesus looks a bit of a turn up for the books but that is probably cos we are used to seeing him as a white European instead of Jewish and Middle Eastern. I'd have thought Mary Magdolin could have given his hair a bit of a trim!

Its interesting that you have a PC characterization of Jesus H. Christ which contradicts the historic record that Christ had long flowing Christ like hair- yet, OTOH, you don't subscribe to the PC thought that Cleopatra was a Black Broad that was ghetto-fabulous.

For 40-50 years godless libs have salivated over the idea that Jesus had dark skin, as if that really matters

Its not wrong for every culture to picture Him in their own image

because Christ exists for everyone

Cleopatra was likely blonde or more strawberry blonde. After all she was Macedonian Greek known as a fair people.

I don't think what you posted, is what he was referring to. Most jews of that time had long flowing hair. Not necessarily straight or blonde.

And I don't think anyone thinks he had a perfectly trimmed goatee either.

Most Judean men kept their hair fairly short to prevent lice. They were olive skinned, brown eyed and black haired. Average height was 5'5" , but they didn't look like cavemen!

I've searched pics of Middle Eastern, Palestinian and Judean men, and NONE of them looked like that.

Weak minds need the interpretations of others to support weak ideas.

Without access to his actual skull, I don't know how they can even begin to try and produce a genuine likeness. Even with witnesses' descriptions, like those photofit images of criminals, the police come up with when the actual villain is caught he seldom looks remotely like them. In fact, I'd say those images do more to protect the identity of the suspect than if they just gave a general description.

I've always said Man created God in his own image
Well arent you the smart one?

Jesus is the Son of God in human form, but He’s not God
