42. Jesus is a Liberal:
http://www.jesusisaliberal.org /

We created this website because we believe the historical, Biblically documented teachings of Jesus
Christ clearly show that Jesus is a Liberal. His philosophy, based in compassion, equality,
inclusion, forgiveness, tolerance, peace and - most importantly - love, is 100% Liberal.

For 20 years we have seen the growing domination of the radical right wing evangelicals on TV, on
the radio and in the news, newspapers and magazines and in politics - claiming to own a virtual
monopoly on Jesus. They have redefined what He meant and used His name to advance their
radical right wing social, business, governmental, political and military agenda - or as President
Bush calls it their just and righteous Crusade. We strongly object and disagree.

We reflect the views of over 150 million Liberal, Progressive, Tolerant and Independent thinking
Christians, Catholics, and others of all spiritual paths, religions and traditions in the USA and
Canada. Together, we reject the radical right wing Republican evangelicals' claims that they alone
represent the will, expression and blessing of Jesus Christ. We believe it is high time someone
stand up for the Liberal, Progressive, Tolerant and Independent thinking majority's position that any
plain reading of His words, any genuine interpretation of His intent, outline a Liberal, Progressive,
Tolerant, Loving and holistic world view.


What did Jesus look like?:

http://thesprig.org/jesuslooks.htm

HIS LOOKS: Have you ever wondered what Jesus looked like? I have always pictured Jesus as a perfect looking man, almost on the order of how a child would think about Superman. A perfect height and weight, a muscular a man with a well proportioned body, beautiful hair and great facial features. Handsome as can be, after all, Jesus was the Son of God in the Flesh. There is a description of what Jesus looked like in the Bible. I don't know how you picture him, but this is what the Bible says concerning his looks. In Isaiah 53:2 We read "For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He has no form or comeliness and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him". According to Prophet Isaiah there was nothing about his looks to draw men to him, that people would desire.

Jesus had no outstanding features, no beautiful hair, skin, eyes and so on. In fact, there was nothing about any part of his physical being (his flesh man) that you would desire to have for yourself. Isaiah described Jesus as a plain looking man. This may be one reason the Jews missed him? They, like many of us were probably looking for a GREEK GOD type of Messiah.


Jesus would have looked to be very ethnically Jewish for the Middle East and he definitely would be challenged in Arizona.
