Readers’ Perspective Leave a Comment

JP readers ask: What did Jesus look like?

Aspects of Jesus’ likely appearance are discussed in several JP articles including:

Ezra, as depicted on a panel of the frescoes that covered the walls of the synagogue at Dura-Europas. Ezra’s hair and beard reflect Jewish styles in Dura-Europas in the first half of the third century A.D. (Reproduced from Carl H. Krueling, The Excavations at Duro-Europas, The Synagogue [New Haven, Yale University Press, 1956] Plate XLVIII.) Did Jesus look like this?
