Jesus looks exactly like His Father as do all the Son.

Isaiah 53:1 "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Isaiah 53:2 "For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; (just as any ordinary Jewish looking child of the time), and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him, (again ordinary).

Isaiah 53:3 "He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Isaiah 53:4 "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:5 "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed".

to me, the forensic that should been studied is what was "INWARD" instead of what was outward. for the character or the content of the heart is better measured/studied that would be the color of one's skin, hair, or eyes. but it's good study.

PICYJAG.
Isaiah 53 is about Israel...

Man is the only creature on earth caught up with this foolishness over skin color and appearance.

Drop the d@mn color and race obsessions.
Your New Testament has Jesus stating that he was only sent unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel...That is hardly everyone...

Unfortunately they still are for most.
A dishonor to have long hair???...Where in the world do you get this from?...

Besides the Nazarite, There is also:

Strict orthodox Judaism forbids men from cutting their sidelocks, but other hair may be kept as desired. Hair is not cut during a time of mourning. The Torah in Deuteronomy 14:1 prohibits removing hair in mourning for the dead. - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_hair

But...but...this is just Mind Candy.
It is concocted to take your attention away from what matters.
It's just a distraction under the guise of intellectual pursuit...do you know how damaging distractions are to someone that is
seriously on the Path to God?
Big.


Like offering ice cream to a 300 pounder on a diet. It is from an enemy.

Someone brought up K. Hagin and then someone disliked him..so the floor is open.
I am inspired by his words...and there are many quotes...

"Thinking faith thoughts, and speaking faith words,
will lead the heart out of defeat and into victory."

Well, Since Christianity claims to have sourced out of Judaism Id like to know where in the Tanakh does G-d state this?...Or are you saying that G-d changed His Mind?...

So, how does nature teach us that a male should not wear his hair long?...

I believe we all do that unconsciously or consciously. As a man thinks in is heart so is he.
