Why The Pictures Of Jesus Are Idiotic
« on: June 09, 2010, 01:02:24 PM »
You've probably seen him; depictions of what Jesus Christ of the New Testament looks like.
Whoever first came up with them has evidently not read the Bible.
First, look at the picture. Next, find a Bible or Google 1 Corinthians 11:14. Then look at the picture again.



We all know deep in our hearts that Jane is the last face we'll see before we're choked to death!

I think we're using very different versions.

I was reading 11:4, my mistake. Maybe the whole concept was an attack on Xianity by the original Renaissance painters and everybody just went with it.

If memory serves, the current image of Jesus was created by a german painter to model Europeans since the Roman Catholic Church was based primarily in Europe.  No sense in making the being you worship look like someone you're actively killing (crusades).
You have been ignored for common interest of mankind.

To my knowledge, there is absolutely nothing in the bible that gives a physical description of Jesus.  Nobody really knows what he looked like, nor if he ever existed as described.

That's why these pictures are even more idiotic. They made up the image, ignoring their own holy book while doing so.

Did you read that thread you just linked?  Raist is no longer a mod, and none of the other mods are going to protect your stupid role-playing anymore.

I believe historically different churches throughout the world have tried to depict Jesus as looking like themselves.

I think it is kind of neat.
