Agelbert NOTE About Jesus Christ's Homo SAP physical appearance: Yes, we Homo SAPS tend to picture our God(s) in the most hyped and glorified appearance possible according to our own provincial, narrow, racist, 'take care o' yer own' (and so on) prejudices. 

BUT, the Judeo Christian Bible, according to the prophet Isaiah, stated that Jesus Christ was UGLY, as well as POOR and not particularly popular either.
Quote
Isaiah 53:2
He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

No one really has a literal view of Scripture, no matter where on the spectrum one falls, every interpretation must allow for figurative language. But in the above case, I believe the only interpretation that is logical is the literal one. Of course ;), the fact that Jesus Christ did not show up for centuries after Isaiah's prophecies is an excuse (rather tawdry, but they'll use it anyway ) to claim that God did NOT reveal the future to Isaiah because, uh, God doesn't exist and Isaiah was smokin' some great stuff! .

Yes, that passage has been interpreted (wrongly, I think  :() as a reference to what Jesus Christ looked like when he was being punched, whipped, poked and beaten to a pulp. I disagree. The prophetic link of that passage to the crucifixion does NOT justify claiming the Lamb of God (i.e. a  perfect PHYSICALLY unblemished and SPIRITUALLY sinless specimen of Homo SAPdom) looked like Michelangelo's handsome side kick.

I believe that the Shroud of Turin is an extremely accurate representation of Jesus Christ (i.e. a run of the mill Jew). There was nothing special in Jesus Christ's appearance.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
