A group of medical experts have created a vague image of what they think Jesus looked like.

According to MetroUK, the experts made this recreation by studying Semite skulls.

Retired medical artist Richard Neave came up with this illustration showing curly black hair, a tanned complexion, and a wide face.

It is believed that this is what Middle Eastern Jews basically looked like.

Dr Neave reportedly used forensic anthropology as well as information he gathered from the Bible to get a more accurate view.

A 3D reconstruction was also made use of when trying to depict what his skin must look like.

It was also decided, using the Bible, that Jesus had short hair. Paul wrote: ‘If a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him’.

That contradicts most depictions of Jesus that have been created since then.
