Interesting posting at Deacon John’s Posterous:
What did — does — Jesus look like? Is He as soft as some artists have made him out to be (especially in recent decades), or more like the Shroud of Turin?
In the afterlife, of course, He will be different than any artist can conceive. He is in glory. He is Light itself. He comes in the way He deems best. To some, He shows wounds of Crucifixion. To others, there is simply the strongest, most attractive, most loving Presence they have ever seen. To most, He appears as He did after the tomb: risen (and to some of His followers, barely recognizable due to His glorified state). Yet, everyone knows Who He is.
Heaven will hold many surprises! . . .
