What year was the Shroud of Turin discovered? Not commenting on it's validity or anything, but I always figured artists (esp. those associated with the RCC) used that as their starting point. Most historical artwork seems to resemble the image found on the shroud, so maybe they used that as their inspiratation?

Ok Buzz I went there and don't see anything close to looking like Christ except maybe the last supper without a beard. Are you saying back in those days he was the first to create the image of Jesus ? There are many different pictures of other things. Never heard of that guy in my life .

I have read that the shroud and also the "napkin" (can remember what they called it) were the original inspiration for the traditional image of Jesus. There was also one state in late antiquity that used the image on their coins.

I never said he was not Jewish

That was in reference to a lot of the pictures I see of Him...you, know blue eyed...with an Anglo appearance.

We do not know what Jesus looks like
the Italian Jesus is from Catholic influence

I am not vouching for its validity, merely stating that I believe that is where the image is derived from. It bears many similarities.

This is the verse that mentions His features:Isa 53:2:" For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground:he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him." That's a good question , Ron, I've wondered the same thing in lieu of this verse from the OT describing the Messiah....

:hug I have been really down today....one of the things was that I have been feeling really ugly...(both inside and out)....God still loves me even though I'm ugly on the outside....but I have to change my inside....I think God was reminding me that He loves us for our inside not for our outside... Thank you!! :hug
