Compassionate-Prophet Jesus the Nazarene

All traditional images are probably misleading. Believers down through the years have depicted him as one of their own physical ideals of beauty and compassion. As a Nazarene, the historical figure of Jesus probably would have had (long or short) thick and curly brown hair. He would almost certainly have had brown eyes and one of the dusky shades of skin common in the middle east. If he was the "son" of the carpenter Joseph, he probably had some muscle, too. Since he was familiar with the ancient scriptures from a young age, you may safely add a air of intelligence and even wisdom to the sad and compassionate expression with which we are familiar from art history. Children were drawn to his presence. Use your imagination.

"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."

"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these, so you have done it unto me."

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

"You will know the truth and the truth will make you free."

"Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you."

"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; They toil not, neither do they spin; And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

"The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all seeds. But when it is grown it is the greatest among herbs and becomes a tree so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."

"No slave can serve two masters. For a slave will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and wealth."
