Jesus Christ became the number one trending topic on Facebook Sunday night as photos came flooding in of a Medical Artist’s Rendition of Jesus Christ. using forensic anthropological research. According to Esquire Magazine, Richard Neave, a retired medical artist from The University of Manchester, teamed up with Israeli archeologists to recreate Jesus’ portrait using skulls from people who lived during his time.
“With three well-preserved specimens from the time of Jesus in hand, Neave used computerized tomography to create X-ray “slices” of the skulls, thus revealing minute details about each one’s structure. Special computer programs then evaluated reams of information about known measurements of the thickness of soft tissue at key areas on human faces. This made it possible to re-create the muscles and skin overlying a representative Semite skull.”-Esquire Magazine
