Q: 1) How does jesus look like? 2) who are gods parents?
A: Dear Jaden,
We’re so glad you’re enjoying Kids’ Time!

Thanks for some great questions. First of all, What does Jesus look like? When Jesus was on earth, he looked like any human being. He was of Hebrew, or Jewish, descent, so He looked like a natural-born Jew would look today, probably with dark hair, dark skin and dark eyes. But when He went to heaven, He was glorified, and when His disciple John saw Him, this is how he described Jesus –

“Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength” (Revelation 1:12-16).

This was the best language John could find to try to describe what Jesus looked like.

Your second question, Who are God’s parents, is easy for us to answer but hard to understand. God didn’t have parents, nor was He created. Everything that exists came from Him, but He didn’t come from anything. He has always been in existence. That’s what makes Him God. This is true of God the Father, of Jesus the Son, and also of the Holy Spirit. They have always been. When the Bible calls Jesus the Son of God, it is not referring to His biological relationship with God the Father, but their interpersonal relationship – in other words, Jesus was not born; He, too, has always been (see Micah 5:2; John 1:1-3).

Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!

Your friend,
Pastor Howard
