DESCRIPTION OF JESUS BY PUBLIUS LENTULUS,
GOVERNOR OF JUDEA, ADDRESSED TO TIBERIUS CAESER, EMPERPOR
OF ROME. FOUND IN AN EXCAVATED CITY WRITTEN IN
ARAMAIC ON STONE.....
"There lives, at this time, in Judea, a man of singular virtue whose name is Jesus Christ, whom the barbarians esteem as a prophet, but his followers love and adore him as the offspring of the immortal God. He calls back the dead from the graves, and heals all sorts of diseases with a word or a touch.
He is a tall man, and well shaped, of an amiable and reverend aspect; his hair of a color that can hardly be matched, the color of chestnut full ripe, falling in waves about his shoulders. His forehead high, large and imposing; his cheeks without spot or wrinkle, beautiful with a lovely red; his nose and mouth formed with exquisite symmetry; his beard thick and of a color suitable to his hair reaching below his chin, His eyes bright blue, clear and serene, look innocent, dignified, manly and mature. In proportion of body, most perfect and captivating, his hand and arms most delectable to behold.
He rebukes with majesty, counsels with mildness, his whole address, whether in word or deed, being eloquent and grave. No man has seen him laugh, yet his manner is exceedingly temperate, modest and wise; a man, for his extraordinary beauty and divine perfections, surpassing the children of men in every sense."
Jesus and his disciples were real, honest-to-goodness, flesh-and-blood, breathing, eating men, as well as spiritual giants. Their Divinity was expressed through their humanity. In fact, if Jesus were not a man, there is little hope that any of us could follow Him...and He never seemed to have any doubt that we can follow Him.
