According to a British scientist, Jesus might not look like the guy you remember from Sunday school.

Using forensic anthropology, retired medical artist Richard Neave came up with an image of who Jesus Christ really resembled. By the looks of these pictures, the scientists' version has a wide nose, dark skin, and a curly head of hair.

Dr. Neave also claims Jesus probably was only about 5'1" and weighed in at 110 pounds. These calculations are based on the size of a man living in Jesus' era and geographical location.
