    “I also appreciate that the people in these illustrations actually look like they could come from Palestine: no blond-haired, blue-eyed Jesuses here.”

    You mean like the blond-haired, blue-eyed Jesus hanging in the downstairs church hallway next to the kitchen? 🙂

    I enjoy how people in different cultures/times “customize” Christ’s appearance. My favorite example was a stained glass window in a Beijing church with a decidedly East Asian-looking Christ, although I also love my 1970s-era Zondervan Children’s Bible, in which many of the photos feature characters with outrageous hair styles of the time.
