Did Jesus Have Long Hair?

Do a Google search for images of Jesus, and just about every picture shows Jesus with long hair.

Probably not. Consider 1 Cor 11:14 and that fact that he was a laboring carpenter.

Was his hair golden? Were his eyes piercing blue?

A blue-eyed, blond-haired man in the land of Galilee would have could not have fulfilled Isaiah 53:2, since he would have been remarkable in a crowd. No, Jesus likely had dark hair and dark eyes.

Was his skin soft and pale?

Unlikely. Consider how much time spent outside.

I encourage you to use these questions sometime with you class, or for a devotion. Help people form biblically accurate pictures in their minds.
