Lawsuit: Detained immigrant beaten for role in hunger strike

  Lawsuit: Detained immigrant beaten for role in hunger strike A guard at a privately run immigration jail beat a detainee because the man joined a hunger strike protesting conditions at the facility, the Washington state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union said in a federal lawsuit Friday.The organization sued U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as the GEO Group, which operates the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma.According to the lawsuit, Jesus Chavez Flores is one of more than 120 immigrant detainees at the facility who began a hunger strike Feb.

But did he really look like this? Probably not . For all that may be done with modelling on ancient bones, I think the closest correspondence to what Jesus really looked like is found in the depiction of Moses on the walls of the 3rd Century synagogue of Dura-Europos, since it shows how a Jewish sage

What Did Jesus Look Like ? Probably Not What You Think .

an old photo of a person © Provided by IBT Media Most images of Jesus follow a general model: tall, white male with long locks and flowing robe. But historian Joan Taylor, religious studies professor at King's College London in the United Kingdom, paints a radically different picture of Christ’s son in her book published earlier this month, "What Did Jesus Look Like?"

For starters, she believes Jesus was short, standing roughly 5 foot 5 inches tall, according to LiveScience. This image is based on skeletal remains from people found in the Judea, a region in ancient Palestine, and Egyptian areas during the time Jesus lived. Additionally, people living in Judea and Egypt during that time had brown eyes, black hair and olive skin, which means doesn't fit the white European archetype.

Church officials: Holy Sepulchre to remain closed

  Church officials: Holy Sepulchre to remain closed Leaders of the two largest Christian denominations in Jerusalem on Monday said the Church of the Holy Sepulchre will remain closed indefinitely to protest an Israeli attempt to tax their properties in the holy city, shuttering one of Jerusalem's most venerable and popular holy sites. Both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic representatives said they were blindsided by the Jerusalem municipality's recent decision to begin taxing them and accused the mayor, Nir Barkat, of disrupting a longstanding and fragile status quo.

In her new book, a scholar says Jesus probably didn't look anything like this modern picture. Jesus likely did the same. He could have used a knife to trim his hair and beard, Taylor said, noting From his clothing, "I think what you would recognize Jesus as being is just really someone who looked .

In her 2018 book What Did Jesus Look Like ?, Taylor used archaeological remains, historical texts and ancient Egyptian funerary art to conclude that, like most While Cargill agrees that these more recent images of Jesus —including darker, perhaps curlier hair, darker skin and dark eyes— probably come

Historical texts, portraits and remains also suggest that Jesus likely kept his hair and beard short for hygienic reasons—namely, to keep lice away. And when it comes to his garments, Taylor tells the outlet that Jesus’ plain tunic was more ragged than pristine, as often shown in images.

"I think what you would recognize Jesus as being is just really someone who looked very poor," she said.

Taylor is not the first to shatter the typical depictions of Jesus. British scientists and Israeli archaeologists utilized forensic anthropology, similar to tactics used by police to solve crimes, to make a 3D model of his face, Popular Mechanics reported in January 2015. Their figure showed that Jesus had dark skin, hair and eyes, which did not come as a surprise to other religious scholars.

Jerusalem holy site stays shut in Christian protest

  Jerusalem holy site stays shut in Christian protest The church in Jerusalem built at the traditional site of Jesus's burial remained closed for a third day Tuesday as Christian leaders protested against Israeli tax measures and a controversial proposed law. Christian leaders closed the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Sunday at noon in a rare move, leaving thousands of pilgrims and tourists seeking to visit what many see as the holiest site in Christianity locked outside.Church officials say the church will be closed until further notice as they seek to pressure Israeli authorities to reverse their measures.

So according to the pictures, it didn't look like the Brown neanderthal man, which was in another jews article. This is the most ancient picture of jesus

Jesus likely did the same. He could have used a knife to trim his hair and beard, Taylor said, noting This active lifestyle, but lack of regular food, meant that he was probably thin, but somewhat From his clothing, "I think what you would recognize Jesus as being is just really someone who looked

"The fact that he probably looked a great deal more like a darker-skinned Semite than westerners are used to seeing him pictured is a reminder of his universality," Episcopal studies expert Charles D. Hackett of the Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia told the magazine. "And [it is] a reminder of our tendency to sinfully appropriate him in the service of our cultural values."

Even the latest rationale behind Jesus not being white is correct, it would be hard to erase years of the pervasive image from our mind. Taylor hopes her book inspires new representations of the religious figure based on historical findings.
