  1. Thanks Ms. Bailey for emailing me those answers from Friday’s quiz. Jesus, you ask, what did he look like. Well, he was born in Bethlehem of 100 percent Jewish parents. I’m guessing that he looked a lot like them, dark skin and hair,basically your average, everyday Jewish person\\\\\ . NO, he didn’t look anything like the brown haired, blue-eyed english looking picture hanging up in so many homes. Can’t wait to see the expression on so many peoples eyes when they do see the real Jesus, when that is, if it is, however it is. Priceless will that expression be!
