Physical descriptions of Jesus, et al


Given the tremendous miracles and teachings Jesus performed, it seems a contemporary would have taken upon himself to record for posterity the physical likeness and qualities of Jesus and some of the others at the time. Am I just thinking in modern ways about celebrity?


Jesus was raised Jewish in the Jewish traditions by Jewish parents so I can imagine He most likely looked a lot like the other Jewish men at that time in keeping with the area where He lived and the financial situation of His parents.
