THE PICTURE OF JESUS

Are you one of those christians who have wondered how Jesus really looks like, then you proceed to check online and you see different pictures of  Jesus and you get even more confused?Picture of Jesus

There so many opinions about the image of Jesus, some people say he is white and if you have seen the movie “Heaven is real”, they suggested he is black. But can we really say we know what jesus looks like because even the Bible didn’t place so much importance on his physical appearance. He was described as many things like the bread of life , the way, the truth and the life, but not once was his physical appearance recorded.

So whose picture do we as christians hang in our homes and offices. Not long ago an actor Robert Powell who played Jesus in the movie “Jesus of Nazareth” voiced out about people worshipping him and hanging his pictures in schools and offices, he said “hanging my pictures and everyone who has ever played Jesus in a movie is like hanging a picture of any other celebrity”

Not long ago a friend of mine posted a picture of Jesus smoking and everyone got triggered by it and the he asked those people “Has anyone seen Jesus?”. A pastor once called it colonialism and mental slavery.

Exodus 20:4 strictly says ” You shall not make for yourself carved images or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above…” Do we simply ignore this commandment? And if we do, are we engaging in idolatry.
