No one knows what Jesus looked like. What we do know, is that he was a carpenter, no doubt strong and muscular from the hard work he did. We also know that his appearance did not attract people, but that by his love and his unworldly wisdom he drew many people to himself. Here, I have depicted him having been beaten prior to his scourging. We see an intense resolve to accomplish his mission to redeem all people to himself by taking upon himself the penalty for our sins.
