What Did Jesus Look Like?

What did Jesus look like? We all have a picture in our mind's eye.

Jim Caviezel is the image for many today due the recent popularity of Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ.

For others, it's the image found in the Shroud of Turin.

Some scholars developed an image using forensic reconstruction techniques on a skull of a Semitic man found from the first century AD. The below image is the controversial image of what Christ may have looked like.

The beauty of new technology is the ability to see all the artistic interpretations of Christ's likeness done in this beautiful YouTube video. In the Lenten season, I pray you find it as inspirational as I do as we all find Jesus in our hearts, minds and souls.

This post was inspired by an intriguing and far more detailed blog post on the subject by Msgr. Charles Pope on the Washington Archdiocese website ( I encourage you to read it.

Lenten Peace & Blessings...
