Cold steel What would you think of an aging apostle Peter, for example? A fisherman? Or the apostle Paul, a zealous Jew turned Christian? We probably would be disillusioned a bit, no?
You make a very good point, of course, cold steel. The apostle Peter was of course a fisherman, a pretty Labour intensive job I would think, with a great diet so I am guessing he'd at least be a very slimline, probably muscular or wiry guy! As for Paul, although he's always portrayed as bald and aging yet again I'd imagine he'd be incredibly toned with all his travells and obviously his intellect and drive would be pretty attractive qualities.
I can't imagine either being too concerned with appearance ( no perfectly ironed toga's and pinky rings) which I personally find very attractive in a man.
My husband told me there is one supposed description of Jesus that (contrary to Watchtower's George Clooney looking Jesus types) has him as a four foot something hunchback....I will ask him where this description is found, unless you guys know?
