Jesus of Nazareth by shimoda7 Jesus of Nazareth by shimoda7
A drawing I made for my mother. It's a scene (probably the most famous one) from the movie 'Jesus of Nazareth'.
She told me the other day that she would love to have one of my drawings hanging on her wall and asked me to draw this one. She hasn't seen it yet but I'm pretty sure she'll like it. Mothers always do right? ;)

Hope you like it too.

- Graphite pencil on paper
- A3 (30x42 cm)
- About 30 hours


edit: Thank you =ZazzyPaws and ^PurpelBlur for the DD! Much appreciated.

with your permission, I would like to use this image as a poster proclaiming gods not dead on my campus. I would in no way be gaining any monetary gain, and have no intention of being seen hanging or posting these, meaning I remain anonymous. any credit if found out would go to you. so I ask is there any way you can send me an image with your signature on the bottom if you wish to be known, or at least your typed consent that I may use this to promote GOD?

You can use the image for that purpose. However, I can't provide you with a higher resolution image.
As for my signature, there is one already on the bottom of the image. Or do you mean some other info?

This is easily one of the most impressive and awesome portraits of Jesus I've ever seen. 
Simply observing this breath-taking piece leaves me without words in both wonder and gratefulness. :) (Smile)

1 Corinthians 11:14


Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?


1 Corinthians 11:7-10


For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, for as much as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.  For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

What Christ Did Look Like?? 


You shouldn't made a picture of Jesus according to the Bible's law:


Exodus 20:4


Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Almost all artists’ renderings portray Jesus with long hair, soft, feminine—if not effeminate—features, and a sentimental, sanctimonious look in His eyes. They bear no similarity in any way to what Christ really looked like.

The Christ of your Bible did not look like this! If it were important for us to know exactly what He looked like as a man, it would have been recorded.

You have no way of knowing what Jesus looked like. You were not there, and have no recordings of his features. It is not a sin to create an image that reminds us of the great sacrifices that have been made to allow us forgiveness from our father.

You didnt read what I say! You are ignorant. You must obey God's law! It is sin to create an image.. Read this again.. Read this again... Read this again:

You shouldn't made a picture of Jesus according to the Bible's law: OBEY GOD'S LAW! It is the 10 Commandments:


Exodus 20:4


------------------> "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."  <-----------------------

This is utterly ridiculous. I draw pics of Jesus amd im not sinning. And if Exodus 20:4 were true, ART WOULD BE A SIN!!!!! Which it's not. I am proud to see that people are drawing Jesus. Its an effort to be closer to him.

Remember, Jesus doesnt has a long hair! Listen to the BIBLE's verse I gave to you. Obey God as a Ruler rather than men. Jesus said listen to his father. Jesus obey his father in heavenly. Do not be ignorant! That's simple.

Nobody say you are sinning.. An artist is an gift. Drawing Jesus is fine but drew Jesus himself to worship is wrong according to the Law. Nobody know what he looks like anyway. Jesus himself did say his father's name, do you know ? I am just here to help you out as bible itself help me out as well. I am not perfect either but obey God's law about image is important than listen to people's words telling you that its okay to worship the image.

That's fine. Nothing to do with agree or disagree.. Its a fact in the bible, that's all. Its your word against God. Not mine.

John 15:18-21

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you... If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me."

John 12:42-44

"Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."

You obviously ignored the proof of Jesus's hair is short and not a long hair in the bible. That's your decision. Good day.
