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.

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) 
Expertly done, fellow deviant! Clap

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.

If you are looking for a way to make people turn away from sin, or become closer to God, you are going about it the wrong way. Pointing out peoples flaws and mistakes won’t make them listen to you. It will only make them cling harder to their set beliefs.

Matthew 7:3

Why do you see the splinter in your brother's eye but not notice the log in your own eye?"

Therefore, his long hair is unacceptable and false, that it.

*Facepalm*

Alright... You do not listen to what Bible say.. Nothing to do with Mathew 7:3. Therefore, I am not saying about people turn away from sin since nobody's perfect but we should learn about him and his son Jesus just to get closer to God. God is just subject and a title. God has a name. Look it up in the bible. Jesus said Let's your name be sanctified. He revealed his father's name.

Anyway, you do not understand me. This picture is against God's law according to one of 10 Commandments because people worship this image. You must not worship the image. That's simple. I am trying to help you out. Many churches have many images and they broken God's law.

It is true, you should not worship an image or idol. But I did not get that idea across in your first message. It is important to get the bible’s word out there for people to see, but if it comes out harsh no one will listen or care. 

Proverbs 15:1-2 

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly

I understand but if no one will listen or care then they are a fool. I would listen and I would care. I obey God as ruler rather than men. Do not worship an image. This picture is an actor from the movie. Not actually Jesus himself. As I said, Jesus do not wear long hair according to the bible from the verse that I gave to you.

Isa 41:29 (NIV) "See, they are all false! Their deeds amount to nothing; their images are but wind and confusion."

1 Sam 12:21 (NIV) Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless.

Eph 5:5 (NIV) For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person--such a man is an idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. See "idolater" ?

1 Jn 5:21 (NIV) Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.


1 Cor 10:14 (NIV) Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.


1 Cor 10:7 (NIV) Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: "The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry."
