Am vazut filme si reprezentari ale lui Iisus. Unele mi-au placut, altele m-au lasat rece. Ma intreb daca nu cumva ni-L imaginam fiecare, raportandu-ne la ce e mai bun in noi. Poate ca viata ne invata chipul lui Hristos, in functie de cum traim, ce patim si ce oameni intalnim.
It's hard to recreate a face you've never seen. A gentle expression, a broad forehead, nicely shaped eyebrows and a delicate smile are certain characteristics. But what about stereotypes? What about when life gives us appearances that we judge poorly? How can one paint the face of a Man like Jesus? There's some testimony regarding His looks, but still not enough.
I've seen some movies and different representations of Christ. Some pleased me, some didn't. I wonder if His face is shaped by each one of us, according to our own life and experiences.
