When Did Jesus Get a Haircut?

Jesus’ New HairstyleSo the doorbell rings this morning as I’m trying to get ready for work. A little old man hands me this handbill from the Jehovah’s Witnesses about their upcoming “Follow the Christ” event. Not wanting to mock the man—he seemed so sweet—I simply thanked him and shut the door. But I have to ask, when did Jesus start looking so, well, respectable? Pictured here is the cover of the handbill. Don’t be deceived—it’s not that Jesus’ hair is in a ponytail or something. In other pictures, you can see that his hair is cut neatly at the nape all around. And doesn’t “Follow the Christ” sound a tad like something Obi-Wan Kenobi would say?

    Hi, Meg! I’m back to my regular habits again and wanted to thank you for the comment on the post I wrote before I left for my hometown trip.

    I think Jesus looks nice with a hair cut. Maybe now he’ll get a job and ditch the sandals. I’ve had plenty of dealings with Mormons and their Jesus looks a lot like the Witness Jesus. He always looked a lot more like a European, which I found curious. Middle East, Midwest, whatever!

    Not only does Jesus look like he went to Supercuts, he looks like he owns a blow dryer as well.
