I found this description of Jesus in an old document.....
The most powerful force in this World is LOVE.
And its that love which covers a multitude of sins.
Its Gods love in you, and I, that will change the World,
Colossians 1:27, but how do we express that love?
Christianity is a relationship with a person, its not belonging to a club,or organisation,
that loves comes through us by knowing Jesus !
I found this description of Jesus in an old document,
don't know any more than that, but it really encouraged me. In the archives in Rome there is a report written nearly 2000 yrs ago by a Roman, Publius Lentulus, to His Emperor, Tiberius :-
It reads, there has appeared in Palestine a Man who is still living and whose power is extra ordinary.
He has the title given Him of Great Prophet,
His Disciples call Him the Son of God.
He raises the dead, and heals all sorts of diseases.
He is a tall well proportioned Man, and there is an air of severity in His countenance which at once attracts the love and reverence of those who see Him.
His hair is the colour of new wine from the roots to the ears, and thence to the shoulders it is curled and falls down to the lowest part of them. Upon the forehead it parts after the manner of Nazerenes.
His forehead is flat and fair,
His face is without blemish or defect, and adorned with a graceful expression.
His nose and mouth are very well proportioned,
His beard is thick and the colour of His hair.
His eyes are grey and extremely lively.
In His reproof, He is terrible, but in His exhortations and instructions , amiable and courteous. There is something wonderfully charming in His face with a mixture of gravity.
He is never seen to laugh, but has been observed to weep.
He is very straight in stature,
His hands large and spreading,
His arms are very beautiful .
He talks little, but with a great quality and is the handsomest man in the World .
