What did Jesus look like?

By The Revd Canon Keith James, Canon for Continuing Ministerial Development - 18 April 2019

In 2001 researchers reconstructed the face of a man aged about 30 years old, from a skull, found in Israel dating from the time of Jesus.
The face was not that of a typical western European man
The face was round and robust
He had Olive, swarthy skin and short, dark, curly hair.
It is likely that Jesus would have looked similar.
