The Main Focus: Jesus is God
All of us have different pictures in our minds about who Jesus is. Some of us see blonde hair, blue eyes Jesus. Some of us see dark skin with dreads Jesus. Thought the Bible isn t 100% clear on what Jesus physically looks like it is clear on who Jesus was. He was God in the flesh. He wasn t just a great teacher but He is indeed the visible image of the invisible God. (Col. 1:15)
