You mean all those pictures of the tall handsome bearded Nordic dude with the long wavy beautifully shampoo'd chestnut hair and splendidly clean cotton/polyester robes are fakes?


Say it isn't so!

The Bohr model of the atom drives a Volvo?


Very strange.

Well, as I just said in #89 -


It now strikes me that hints of Jesus' disfigurement may derive not  from biographical reports of Jesus but from Isaiah's Suffering Servant  (Israel), particularly at 53 -


2 For he grew up before him like a young plant, / and like a root out of  dry ground; / he had no form or comeliness that we should look at him, /  and no beauty that we should desire him.


Hence pointers to a  physically unattractive Jesus may simply arise routinely in the usual  fulfilment-of-prophecy fictions of the gospel writers.


Simply a little tidying up for this thread.

I don't think any serious Biblical Scholars have a Problem in understanding that none of The Canonical Gospels offer a "Physical Description" of The Lord Jesus (The Christ) of Nazareth ...

I'm sure they don't - there isn't one.
