I know Bill, I know.
Does meek and mild sound like Jake Long to you?
Meek and mild does not equate to the physical body necessarily.
Jesus was probably somewhere in between some little scawny guy and Jake Long.
He was a carpenter by trade. This does not mean he was Mr. Muscles, but he wasn't a wimp either. He was a blue collar guy.
Players come and go, but I will always be a Miami Dolphins Fan first and foremost.
If we can all agree that Jesus was reportedly a carpenter's apprentice, that means he was a tradesman. He probably was leanly muscular with thick wrists and forearms. The repetetive actions and aerobic nature of the job probably ensured efficient calorie burn that maximized lean musccle development.
And yes. Meek and mild has absolutely nothing to do with body style.
Jesus was almost certainly a smaller man, probably around 5' 5" as that would be around average height for the time he was alive (if he ever even existed).
Also, he was either black or dark skinned. I mean unless you are under the impression that there was a clean cut white guy with a flowing beard doing manual labor in the Middle East thousands of years ago.
And he smelled, for sure.
it makes sense that jesus being a perfect man [the second one]
would have been in great physical shape. not super human, but
in fine shape.
Gods word the bible says over and over about taking care of your body
HE gave you and keeping it clean ["cleanliness is next to Godliness"].
you think some weak looking, mangy haired sickly, like most of the world
portrays him as, could do all those miles, on foot, sometimes being chased
and running for his life through scorching deserts and cold of winter could do
all that? nope. another reason to sure jesus was in fine shape.
Jesus, being Gods son, would SURELY have adhered to his Fathers command
that humans take care of the body they were given ["treat your body as a
there being NO pictures of jesus handed down through the centuries, it only
takes a little common sense to see all these pictures of him with nasty, stringy
hair and anorexic, thin, sickly body are FALSE representations.
satan loves those pics though, as they were inspired by him.
jesus would have been in fine health and physically fit. he would have been
dressed well, but with humility and moderation. he would have been well
groomed and clean. after all, he was undertaking the most important
ministry in mankinds history plus was representing his Father at every stop.
he went house to house [ACTS:20-20] and also spoke with many people as
he travelled from place to place, in person. he would want to appeal to people,
not repel them with a sickly, unclean look. remember, people in those days
were afraid of ANYONE who appeared sick as there were virtually NO cures
for most diseases and afflictions [leprosy].
so like i said, a little bible reading and common sense will give people a good
idea how he must have appeared and dressed.
Lol, you guys are talking about how Mr. Christ looks, yet there is no solid proof that he even existed...
Just imagine if the Bible was written by a random guy and was intended to be 100% fiction.
No one knows.
