The Bible is the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book ever. This isn’t an opinion. It’s in the Guinness World Records. But what’s interesting is the look of Jesus, the third-most popular person in the past 6,000 years, is not consistent. Aristotle and Plato (the only two to outrank Jesus) consistently look the same, but Jesus rarely ever looks like he’s described in the Bible.
You probably know the lines from Revelation 1:14-15:
His hair was “white as white wool, white as snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace.”
Daniel 7:9 said his “head was like pure wool.” But too many depictions show him looking like the exact opposite, and there has always been a complex account of how history portrays him.
At Goals Supply TV, we believe in a diverse, inclusive community where we have the opportunity to explore our own creative expressions. We want to give artists of all types the opportunity to share their views. Whether you believe Jesus to be a Palestinian Jewish man, a black man or have another appearance, we’d like you to share your creativity with us. Tell us what you think Jesus really looks like.
