Did Jesus Have Long Hair?

A child asked me this question recently especially since we emphasize low cut (in the light of 1Corinth11:14) among males. Incidentally, the pics we show of Jesus in children materials are ones with long hair - and the child brought this to my attention. I did let the child know that I believed (and still do) that Jesus did not keep long hair and that the depictions of Jesus with long hair were not correct. And that's my dilemma - our books depict a long haired Jesus (which is not in line with the aforesaid verse).

I should appreciate your sincere contributions on the topic my good fellows, which I trust would be devoid of acrimony and abuses. A reference to the same topic being exhaustively dealt with in an earlier time would be welcome, if any.

His hair would have been the same length as that of other Jews at the time.

Women generally keep longer hair than men. So if men back then wore long hair by today's standards, then the women's hair would be longer though covered up.

After these propaganda subliminal pictures of a Jesus with long hair have been stamped in the minds of our children, we have to make this a full time effort to explain what Jesus looked like and we must all agree on one picture. Revelation 1:14-15  describes Jesus’ hair texture which is[b] like lamb’s wool[/b] as well as in 1 Corinthians 11:14 where it states that it is a shame for a man to have long hair. This goes to show you that the image of Jesus with long hair could not be the true image of the true Son of God, Jesus Christ.

The Bible says that all scripture is inspired by God, including the one that condemns long hair for guys even though it may seem like Apostle Paul's personal opinion. Now it's not possible that God inspired something so obviously anti-Jesus, right?

Even if I wasn't a Christian, common sense would have made me write that your post is just the wrong thing here. Can't you live in peace with others?
