Task 1: Choose five words that you would use to describe Jesus.

Task 2: Find the answers to these questions:

  • When was Jesus born?
  • What religion was he?
  • Which country was he born in?
  • Which town was he born in?
  • How old was he when he died?
  • How did he die?
  • What do Christians think he did 3 days after his death?

No-one knows what Jesus actually looked like, because there are no physical descriptions of Jesus in the Bible.

 So every picture of Jesus is either: A personal response or the person’s own idea of what Jesus was like or… An image that tries to get us to think in a certain way about him.

Task 3: For each of the following images complete these tasks…

  • Use one word to describe the image
  • How would you describe Jesus in this image?
  • Do you like/not like this image? Why?

Task 4: Depending on your gradepath, complete one of the following…

Level 4:

Give three examples of different ways that Jesus can be portrayed.

Level 5-6:

Why are there different interpretations of Jesus and the way that he looks?

Level 7+:

Which interpretation do you agree with the most? Explain your answer.
