Why is Jesus always painted as a light skin light brown haired guy ?
Just wondering how come Jesus is always portrayed as having fair skin, with light brown hair if he lived in the middle east ? Shouldn’t he have middle eastern features ? Also Jesus is always pictures as having a really small American nose – if he was in the middle east wouldn’t he have a nose that is more prominent ?
