Real Face of Christ Perspective

imageNice perspective by Lindsey K Rietzsch over at Stand a Little Taller on four images of Jesus: 1) "Christ in Red Robe" by Del Parson, 2) "Prince of Peace" by Akiane Kramarik, 3) Scientific Rendering "the Real Face of Jesus Christ" (as featured on the History Channel) by Ray Downing and 4) "Christ’s Image" by Heinrich Hofmann.

I have recently been drawn to various depictions of the Savior Jesus Christ especially those claimed to be the most accurate images of his face. It’s been spiritually uplifting for me to compare the similarities of these images and learn the stories behind the artists and their artwork. Here are the four I found to be most fascinating. At the bottom of this blog post I share with you my thoughts and feelings about the real face of Christ.

AND: Here is a link that brings together several recent postings in this blog that have included the Akiane image of Jesus.

  1. Good Job!!!!! But, i think that if you all were to take the long dark hair, beard, and mustache from Ray Downing’s picture, then apply it to Akiane’s painting of Jesus i believe that we would have a 100% accuracy of Jesus!

  2. I have a son with a severe brain injury, he can not talk, walk or eat, but understands everything going on around him. he can communicate by raising his right leg, eyebrows, sometimes a nod, or lifting his right arm. I had read the book “Heaven is for Real” but I had already known about Akiane’s pictures, I had no idea they were in the book until I read to that point and thought oh wow how great is this! Since I know my son has seen the angels, because of over the past three years he has indicated they are there, by a glance and me asking are they here, and he will smile and look at them in the room. I showed him the picture of the Prince Of Peace, I told him to look hard at the picture, his head came up off his pillow and he just stated at the picture with such focus. I asked him, “Zach if this is the Jesus you saw raise your right arm” he did not even think about it, he raised his right arm right away. I told him yes baby that is him. to this day, when I tell that story around other people and show them the picture, he lights up as well as the people seeing the picture for the first time.
