Jesus is a revered leader in the Christian religion. Many people have a picture of him in their homes. You can learn how to draw Jesus’ face - or at least one version of what he might have looked like.

Jesus was born about 2,000 years ago. His mother was the virgin Mary. According to Christian teachings, he was the Son of God, sent to the Earth to teach people and die as a ransom for their sins.

Interestingly, even people who do not believe this about Jesus admit that he was a masterful teacher who had a lasting effect on humanity. In fact, he is considered to be one of the three most influential people in history.

What did Jesus really look like? The truth is, no one really knows. The Bible - the primary source of information on Jesus' life - does not contain a description of his appearance.

Likely, he resembled other people from where he lived and of Jewish descent - tan skin, dark hair, dark eyes, and a beard.

This cartoon shows Jesus as he is depicted in many Medieval European paintings. But even those artists hadn't seen Jesus.

They lived hundreds of years after his life and death.
