our school did that with alot of little pics of students and made a pic of Jesus.
i hope you go to a christain school  public schools should not be doing that
oh yeah its a Christian school! ,rockbridge acadamy

I often wonder how anyone knows what Jesus looked like, but I suppose it's the same as Santa Claus, i.e. it doesn't really matter... L
well the Bible mentoins things on it a few places
Does it mention: complexion, hairstyle, eye-colour, nose, beard / moustache, teeth, eyebrows, ears, chin....? L
well just a few things here and there nothing that acurate
Think about giving a description to the cops - could they come up with a good "artist's impression" I wonder...? L
