Did Jesus really look like any of these pictures?
You see them everywhere. Churches have them on their walls, Christians put them up in their homes. But did Jesus look anything like them?
In the New Testament, in 1 Corinthians 11:14, the Bible says, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”
Here’s the context of the of the chapter:
“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”
Looking at the full context, it’s apparent that a man’s (or woman’s) head being covered means the hair is long. If it is a shame for a man to have long hair, would Jesus have had long hair?
So where did this depiction of Jesus Christ with long hair come from? If you do a Google search on the name “Sananda”, you’ll see the VERY SAME PICTURES as those you see when you Google Jesus! Who is Sananda? He is a so-called “Ascended Master”, a demon entity channeled by “New Age” practitioners.
What should we learn or do about this? Take down your pictures of so-called Jesus. That’s not Him. We don’t know what he looks like, but for those of us who are saved by His blood, one day we will see Him as He is, and that, at least as far as I’m concerned, is soon enough to know what He looks like. I want to see the real Jesus.
