Christen in her blog, The Uncontainable Truth
With Easter just around the corner, many of us are getting ready to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. Like most churches, our church has been doing sermon series that lead up to Easter Sunday. Recently, our pastor showed us this video about a documentary on the History Channel called The Real Face of Jesus? The Real Face of Jesus? follows a team of graphic experts as they use cutting-edge 3D software to bring a holy relic known as the Shroud of Turin to life. Many believe Jesus Christ was buried in this ancient linen cloth, which bears traces of blood and the faint, ghostly image of a man.
I must say, watching this video made me wonder what Jesus really looked like. Of course, the first images that come to my mind are a man in his thirties with a beard, but what else? Did he have his mother’s eyes? Or Joseph’s lips? Did he smile a crooked smile or run his hands through his hair?
Getting to see the face of Jesus one day is going to be a marvelous discovery. Even though I can’t physically see Jesus each day, I see him in other ways. I see him through my husband and my children. I see the face of Jesus when I sing praises to his name. I see him when I am hiding away in fear because his light enters my heart and my mind. Jesus is all around us and He is just waiting for us to greet him hello.
