Catholic Answers Live - What Was Jesus Like

January 15, 2021

Who was Jesus and what was he like?

Questions Covered:

  • 19:27 - It seems like today people see Jesus as a lovey dovey hippy, but the language in Scripture from him can be really strong. Why does he use such harsh analogies and words at times? 
  • 29:26 - How can we better understand why Jesus talks about not judging other people’s hearts? 
  • 31:51 - Do we know what Jesus’ build and height were, based on the Shroud of Turin? 
  • 34:04 - What happened to Jesus between ages 12 and 30? 
  • 43:32 - What did Jesus actually look like? Why and when did artists start depicting him as a European? 
  • 47:50 - Have you seen The Chosen series? Is that a good depiction of Jesus? 
  • 50:35 - Was Jesus a handsome person? In Isaiah, it says that there is nothing remarkable about him.
