The Changing Face of Jesus by AAtheist The Changing Face of Jesus by AAtheist
If you like this kind of thing take a look at my facebook page at [link]

There is no physical description of Jesus in the gospels or the new testament letters, however when he was arrested Judas had to point him out to the soldiers, so it can be assumed he wasn't "funny lookin" or odd in any way.

This means that he would have been about 5ft1. Not the usual image you get of jesus is it?

As an interesting aside Sir Richard Burton was an English explorer who translated (actually, wrote -- that is, bowdlerized and invented) the first English language version of the the Kama Sutra
