What did Jesus look like?
I just recently stumbled upon this, and thought it worth spreading around a bit. We're all familiar with the ever-present blond, blue-eyed interpretations of Jesus coming out of Western culture. In 2002, Popular Mechanics (?!?) published a reconstruction of a more plausible Jesus. The work was done by forensic artist Richard Neave; the details can be found in the online article.
Probably not much comfort for many of the white born-agains. And, if he were at the airport getting ready to board a plane, the TSA would surely pull him aside for extra "scrutiny" (if you know what I mean).
