Hello everyone!
Recently, I've been watching this amazing Bible animated series of Jesus' life and I'm really loving it.

But, there is this thing that always makes me a little uncomfortable. Jesus' appearance.

We all know that the appearance of our Lord and Savior doesn't matter. What matters is what He did for us!

But ... I just can't get this fact that most people imagine Jesus as being a white, long hair, blue eyes and European like man. This is so wrong.

Historically accurate Jesus tells us something different. You see, He was born as a Jewish. A middle eastern man. So of course His skin was supposed to be darker and the tradition of the Jewish, they cut the hair (exceptions from Samson and John Baptist).

So, I've decided to make this little edit trying to make Jesus a little bit more accurate from what He should've looked like Meow :3 

Now I want to hear from you: how do you imagine Jesus in your mind? I confess that I'm so used to this European version of Jesus that sometimes I really imagine Him this way and not in a Jewish way.

Yes I agree, your version looks much better! :D I too have a habit of picturing him as he's often portrayed in popular media, minus the blue eyes.
