I agree. I'm sure you may have all seen this as well. Biblical Archeology Review (one of the foremost archeology magazines out there) wanted to see what Jesus really looked like in the face. They took a "typical" jewish skull from that period and performed forensic reconstruction with clay muscles. Here is what they came up with. Shocked me becuase I always viewed Jesus as a long haired white dude. But he would have been a short haired arab jew (short hair because they would shave it all off when they would mourn someones death which was often back then).
Kinda blows the mind from what we are all used to seeing... but makes it more believable that our preconceptions may be wrong about Jesus' apperance.
