What does Jesus look like?

A: Dear Jaden,

Thanks a great question. What does Jesus look like? When Jesus was on earth, he looked like any human being. He was of Hebrew, or Jewish, descent, so He looked like a natural-born Jew would look today, probably with dark hair, dark skin and dark eyes. But when He went to heaven, He was glorified, and when His disciple John saw Him, this is how he described Jesus –

“Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength” (Revelation 1:12-16).

This was the best language John could find to try to describe what Jesus looked like.
