Jesus - God of 99 Faces  

Jesus Christ, a Christian God of many faces.

Even though there is no physical description of Jesus in the New Testament. Christians have always been creative when it comes to drawing God with their own hands, in various images, artwork, statues and idols.

The conventional image of a bearded Jesus with long hair emerged around 300 AD, and became established after the 6th century. Before 300 AD, the Early Christian Church considered illustrating Jesus Christ as controversial so avoided it.

    Islam forbids the drawing of Jesus, or any other Prophet
    Islam strictly forbids drawing images or illustrations of any Prophet of God. As it involves detracting from their status and showing disrespect to them. It is a transgression against their dignity and undermines the Prophets as the best of God's creation. 2
