What Should Jesus Look Like?
Dan Buttry, American Baptist International Ministries Global Consultant for Peace and Justice, has written a great article on artistic depictions of the face of Jesus. What should Jesus look like? Is it okay to portray him like oneself and one's neighbors look? If so, why? Though he leaves out the question about whether we should portray him visually at all (an important one), where he goes with the answers he does give ends in a thought-provoking meditation on the doctrine of the Incarnation. Enjoy.
