The Real Face of Jesus

Forensic anthropology reveals what Jesus would have looked like

This is really well done.  I would've expected the cheekbones to be a smidge narrower and the nose a bit more arched, but I can look at this and say, "Yeah, that's Jesus."  Such is not true of the white Christs that are the prevailing portrayal.

His appearance matters,  because it can influence how people respond to each other.  So that's one reason why I write things like "Sharper Than Nails."  If the guy in this new picture showed up in today's world, he'd get a downright hostile reception.  Again.
