    Correct word is "plucked", Kayla. You're probably referring to Isaiah 50:6 which goes:

    Took a look at your profile. Since you're just 16 (or 15 going to 16) are the Dartts your grandfolks or what ?

    My sound card is broke so I could not listen to the songs, but if they sing like, you know, country or bluegrass type of gospel, I'll probably like it.

    The Messiah has to have facial hair long enough to be "plucked". Some who want to rewrite history say Jesus was clean shaven (AS WE SHOULD BE, they would continue), and that this facial hair was from a day's growth.

    Right. I don't know ANYONE who is so hirsuite as to be able to grow hair on the face in 24 hours that is long enough to have someone grab hold and rip it out.

    Jesus had a beard. Hope that helps.

    From my own observations of the period, I believe:</font>
    • Our Lord's hair was longer than a US Marine Corps Drill Instructor's, but shorter than Willie Nelson's.</font>
    • Our Lord had a beard. How long, I have no idea. But, in that day, the only razors were made of bronze. So, unless you had a slave to shave you every day, you had a beard.</font>

    Pssst Kayla,

    Take a look at the photos of Dr. Bob and Squire (facial hair)-- so of course you know what they'd say about Jesus and his facial hair!

    Always consider the source.

    Clean-shaven Tim (though I've been told my eyebrows are rather bushy--does that count as facial hair?)

    Tim, my beard does not enter into this discussion. If I so choose, I could have a clean shaved face with a little effort; much less effort than it would have taken our Lord in His time on Earth with a bronze razor and olive oil (they didn't have soap as we know it back then). However, as someone who gets up at 4:45am during the week and is off to work by 6a, I had to make a choice read my Bible or shave. You can see which alternative I took.

    It would seem to me that since Judas had to kiss Jesus, so the guards knew which guy He was, that He looked like all the other guys. I don't think the disciples had a lot of spare time for hair cutting and shaving tho. Not that it matters one bit to me!

    Isaiah 53:1-3
    1 Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.


    Diane

    Steel. The old style cut-throat steel razors go back at least 200+ years. The modern disposable "Gilettes" go back 100+. My point is that "back in the day" neither shaving or hair cutting were as easy or convienient as they have been for the last 90+ years. Remember, only a hundred years ago it was standard procedure for a gentleman to stop by his barber's shop for a shave. The barber using the shaving soap mug with the gentleman's name on it. Gentlemen kept a mug at their barber's shop, The barber stored the mugs on a shelf on in a mug cabinet. I just refuse to hold my Savior to grooming standards made possible by technological advances since 1890.

    Just had a vision of the next edition of "Passion", with Willie Nelson playing Jesus.

    But this time, at the miracle at the wedding in Cana, the water turns into Whiskey River . .

    Squire,
    You have always put me in mind of C.H. Spurgeon.

    But I don't think he smokes cigars. Just a surmise.

    I don't post my picture (I think there is a rule about posting offensive items), but I also have a beard of 19 years standing and a moustache before that. Having raised children while I had a beard, I can testify (although in a very weak form and certainly not to be compared to Christ's torment) about the pain of plucking the hair.

    I cannot say how long Jesus' hair was; the Romans were close-cropped folks, and I think it unlikely that the Jews would have emulated the hated conqueror. Paul, OTOW, probably had short hair, as befitted someone in touch with Greek and Latin peoples. Just a guess, and probably not a good one.

    Quite right. The stereotypical image of Jesus is likely historically correct, as it was the custom of Jewish men of the time. Jewish men typically had facial hair upon reaching an adult age, and they had relatively long hair (note: long by our standards, but not by their standards). It was the romans who were generally, but not always, clean shaven, and typically wore their hair cropped short (except in battle, when they would shave it close to the skin, to prevent an enemy in battle from grabbing hold of it).
