Someone asked. Here’s my answer, without flooding his comment’s box.
Back then, there was no digital cameras. So, people would rely on paintings. But then, Jesus as a man, 2,000 years ago, wasn’t a celebrity as he is humble and kept a low profile. Therefore, no one painted pictures of him.
However, based on history, more or less the historians know what kind of fashion were in then. All the men wear robes, keep beard and based on where Jesus was born, the people there are angmohs with long hair and blue eyes. Hence, the actors that play the part of Jesus always have long hair, blue eyes. Since Hollywood rules, everyone sort of have that same image of Jesus.
Then again, if you watch Discovery Channel, you may know that there is a piece of cloth that was believed to be used to wrap Jesus after he died. On that piece of cloth (The Shroud of Turin), there is an image of the eyes, nose and mouth. Just like the one on the Google map.
Part of what is mentioned on Discovery Channel webpage :
“A determination of the kinetics of vanillin loss suggests that the shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old,” Rogers wrote.
According to Tom D’Muhala, the president of the American Shroud of Turin Association for Research, the new chemical tests produced “conclusive evidence.”
Anyway, for us Christians, it does not matter how Jesus looks like. We believe in Him, His words (Bible) and we can feel and see how He works through us. With faith, we do not have to go all the way out to prove anything. What matters is what is in our heart and how we live our lives each day.
