Beardless Jesus

Post by A_Britishcolumbian »

amazing quality glass plate with a depiction of jesus without long hair or beard discovered in spain and it is early, over 1600 years old, so from the roman era. truly stunning.

I'm not worried what I say, if they see it now or they see it later, I said it. If you don't know maybe that would hurt you, I don't know. You should know though, so you don't get hurt, so you know what side to be on when it happens.

I don't think it's so unusual that images of Christ were made in the image of the artists head. Because of course a beaded or unbearded Jesus isn't as compelling as the fact that (if you believe in the historical Jesus) would have been a brown guy with black wirey hair.

My favourite comedy episode of all time was on the show Good Times where JJ painted a portrait of Black Jesus.

Dynamite!
