...It would be hard to imagine a man of noble birth, displaying unimaginable splendor, decked out like Solomon in his glory, possessing riches beyond measure--and still be the Redeemer of Mankind...

"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." (Hebrews 4:15-16) ESV

Unlike Hollywood's work in casting actors to portray Jesus, the Bible tells us by way of prophesy in the Old Testament...

"...he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; 
and as one from whom men hide their faces 
he was despised, and we esteemed him not." (Isaiah 53:2-3) ESV

Jesus Christ superstar? Not by earthly appearances...
