This is How Jesus Looked, Reveals Forensics

Update Date: Dec 15, 2015 02:17 PM EST

British scientists used the forensic anthropology, used by police for solving crimes, and put together the most probable and accurate image of Jesus Christ. According to this portrait, Jesus is not the light skinned man he was posed to be throughout history. For the purpose of their prediction, the scientists studied three skulls found at the archaeological dig sites and were able to draw a possible share of Jesus' facial muscles and his head. However, the color of his skin and hair could not be accurately predicted. The discovery was made after the researchers examined a few drawings that they found in Israel and that explains the dark skin, flowy hair and Jewish beard. The latest image by the scientists is an absolute contrast to the traditional image portrayed in the pictures and paintings that we are used to seeing, reported AOL.

Richard Neave, the retired medical artist, created the face of 'Jesus' by analyzing the Semite skulls by employing the modern day techniques that are used in forensics. The portrait shows that Jesus' face may have been wide, his eyes were dark and his beard bushy with short curly hair and a tanned complexion that justifies the dark skin. These features were typical of the Middle Eastern Jews located in the Galilee area in Northern Israel. According to Dr. Neave, the portrait is of an adult man who was alive in the same era as Jesus and lived in the same place. The experts also say that his depiction of Jesus is likely to be more accurate than the paintings made by some of the most famous masters. The technique uses archeological and cultural data along with those that are used to solve crimes, said Daily Mail. Detectives used the Turin Shroud, believed to display a picture of Jesus and then created a similar fit from that material.
