What did Jesus look like?

Richard Neave began his research in 1998, by looking at skulls from Northern Israel from the 1st century AD and he then unveiled for a BBC documentary called The Son of God what Jesus probably looked like.


I am not sure why it was reported in the Independent today when the TV documentary was shown in 2001 (!). You can read about the documentary on the BBC website, and watch a clip about the Resurrection from the programme on YouTube. A slightly confusing thing is that there is also a 2014 film with the name The Son of God with more numerous YouTube clips. The crucifixion scene from that film is on YouTube lasting about 4 minutes and is as you’d expect quite emotional and not very enjoyable to watch.
