According to medieval artist/scientist, Richard Neave, Jesus is not the white, long-haired, skinny face you've been seeing throughout your entire life.

Using the powers of science, Neave found three skulls from Israeli archaeological sites and used computerized tomography to construct the best shape for Jesus's face. From his findings, Neave created a black Jesus, with a much broader nose and a new hairdo.

This version of Jesus makes a lot more sense for the region in which Jesus lived. One might think the writers of the Bible would have pointed out the fact that White Jesus may have stood out in the crowd. Maybe not...

So, since there have never been any actual drawings of Jesus discovered, scientists are calling Richard Neave's rendition the most realistic drawing of Jesus ever created.
