He likely had a beard but so did many of the Jewish men in that day.
They had no power tools of course so the wood had to be cut by using hand tools and great physical labor which must have took long, tedious hours to work with.
The wood was not like what we see today; two by fours or four by sixes. These timbers had to be cut down by hand and they had to be sawed down into workable sections. And carpenters in those days worked with stone more than they did wooden beams.
Does Jesus look like what most pictures of Him reveal?
Did Jesus have long hair and wear a white robe as the pictures and movies portray?
So we see that Jesus was a man’s man and may have had the body of a heavy construction worker. Time and time again, the New Testament records that Jesus slipped away into the crowds and that the religious officials, when looking for Him, frequently couldn’t find Him? Because Jesus must have looked much like any other rabbi of the day with a robe yes, but not with the long hair that we think He wore.
Did He look different from the rest of the Jews or was He no different from those of His day?I believe that we will be shocked on the day that we see Jesus Christ.Hopefully you will see Him on the day of His return as your Savior and not as your Judge, but we’ll discuss that later but right now we are asking if Jesus had long hair.The Bible is silent on the length of His hair but there is no reason to believe that He had the long, flowing locks of hair that the movies portrayed Him as having or the thousands of pictures that display Him with long hair. In fact Paul knew that it was customarily a shame for a man to have long hair (1 Cor ) and knowing that Jesus was a carpenter, having long hair would have gotten in the way of His work.
Jesus was not the effeminate looking man that most images reveal Him as.
He was a carpenter and carpenters in those days not only worked with wood, they worked with stones.
