Physical Description of Jesus the Christ & Physical Descriptions of Jesus The Christ Eye-Witnesses
Published from WordPress by Donna Brown Bowles. August 11, 2022
This is a reprinting of a letter from Pontius Pilate to Tiberius Caesar describing the physical appearance of Jesus. Copies are in the Congressional Library in Washington, D.C.
A Gentile TO TIBERIUS CAESAR: A young man appeared in Galilee preaching with humble unction, a new law in the Name of the God that had sent Him. At first I was apprehensive that His design was to stir up the people against the Romans, but my fears were soon dispelled. Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather as a friend of the Romans than of the Jews. One day I observed in the midst of a group of people a young man who was leaning against a tree, calmly addressing the multitude. I was told it was Jesus. This I could easily have suspected so great was the difference between Him and those who were listening to Him. His golden colored hair and beard gave to his appearance a celestial aspect. He appeared to be about 30 years of age. Never have I seen a sweeter or more serene countenance. What a contrast between Him and His bearers with their black beards and tawny complexions! Unwilling to interrupt Him by my presence, I continued my walk but signified to my secretary to join the group and listen. Later, my secretary reported that never had he seen in the works of all the philosophers anything that compared to the teachings of Jesus. He told me that Jesus was neither seditious nor rebellious, so we extended to Him our protection. He was at liberty to act, to speak, to assemble and to address the people. This unlimited freedom provoked the Jews — not the poor but the rich and powerful. Later, I wrote to Jesus requesting an interview with Him at the Praetorium. He came. When the Nazarene made His appearance I was having my morning walk and as I faced Him my feet seemed fastened with an iron hand to the marble pavement and I trembled in every limb as a guilty culprit, though he was calm. For some time I stood admiring this extraordinary Man. There was nothing in Him that was repelling, nor in His character, yet I felt awed in His presence. I told Him that there was a magnetic simplicity about Him and His personality that elevated Him far above the philosophers and teachers of His day. Now, Noble Sovereign, these are the facts concerning Jesus of Nazareth and I have taken the time to write you in detail concerning these matters. I say that such a man who could convert water into wine, change death into life, disease into health; calm the stormy seas, is not guilty of any criminal offense and as others have said, we must agree — truly this is the Son of God! Your most obedient servant, Pontius Pilate.
CHAP. XX. THE GOSPEL OF NICODEMUS AN ACCOUNT GIVEN BY PONTIUS PILATE.
I just read this entire book a few months ago and it the most extraordinary book I have ever read! It’s only 22 Chapters. Well worth 30 minutes of your time. I can assure you that it will change your perspective and your life.
CHAP. XX. THE GOSPEL OF NICODEMUS OKAY OKAY
1 Christ delivers Adam to Michael the archangel. 3. They meet Enoch and Elijah in heaven, 5 and also the blessed thief, who relates how he cares to Paradise. THEN the Lord holding Adam by the hand, delivered him to Michael the archangel; and he led them into Paradise, filled with mercy and glory; 2 And two very ancient men met them, and were asked by the saints, Who are ye, who have not yet been with us in hell, and have had your bodies placed in Paradise? 3 One of them answering, said, I am Enoch, who was translated by the word of God: 5 and this man who is with me, is Elijah the Tishbite, who was translated in a fiery chariot. 6 4 Here we have hitherto been, and have not tasted death, but are now about to return at the coming of Antichrist, being armed with divine signs and miracles, to engage with him in battle, and to be slain by him at Jerusalem, and to be taken up alive again into the clouds, after three days and a half. 7
I play this at night and it helps me sleep sound in the holy presence of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST. IS THERE ANY DOUBT WHO THE TWO WITNESSES ARE AFTER READING THIS?
*ENOCH AND ELIJAH*… Are the two witnesses beyond a shadow of a doubt Praise GOD for HE IS worthy of praise in JESUS NAME!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Debbie my sister, I love and miss you so… When I first heard that you had left this earth, the only thing I know, is that, I missed you and, I loved you and, am sorry for not telling you before you had to go.
Broken, and reluctant to believe that it was actually you, then, it hit me, It is definitely true! And now I must confess, I should have been there for you before this awful mess… I’m sorry. I regret that I was not there for you as, you were there for me.
As reality echos in a melancholy tone; I want to be where you are so, you won’t have to be alone…
Reminiscence, in days of long ago; there’s a special space in time, where only you and I can go.
Like how you nurtured me when I was very young. You were an angel, that I truly loved.
I thought of all the times when I had been awakened in the night and I’d say, “Debbie, I’m afraid,” and, you’d say, ” Come on, it will be alright, ” allowing me to sleep with you until the break of day.
Our mother was so burdened , raising children on her own but, you were always there to help, and make a happy home.
You made sure I was in, when the streetlights were turned on. You made our home a refuse, anchored to our Jesus and our Lord.
Mom knew that she could trust you until the morning light. You were blessed with strength and courage to guide us through life’s journey insuring that we did it right.
Teaching by example made me want to be like you. When things were broken, you fixed them, putting a smile on mom’s face. I always wondered how you knew the workings of radios, and mother’s clocks . Your determination to always make everything alright.
And now you’re gone, leaving painful memories so high I cannot reach. Forced to lie here broken as, if I cannot speak; it feels like forever!? why did you have to leave!?
And truthfully, at this moment everything’s I can see, isn’t really clear… ,honestly, I sure wished you would have stayed.
Words crashing in my head, screaming, “why was it not me instead!?” It feels so wrong, I cannot look, my thoughts of you are off the hook! Regrets, leave me devastated, absent of words to speak. I just thought you’d be here forever but, I guess it wasn’t ment to be. GOD had other plans you see, He needed a rock’n’angel so, HE chose you because you were much stronger than our brother Joe and me.
Debbie, my sister, I love you and, I wish I had one last chance to tell you before you had to pass.
Photos of my dear sister and her beautiful family. R. I. P.
I know you’re with our mother and I cannot wait to see…. your smile and the laughter of times that used to be. I know it is timeless until my eyes can see but, I must admit the truth, GOD has truley set you free.

LET GOD BE THE JUDGE AND EVERYONE ELSE BE SILENT
This is not only, a valuable part of the Gospel Of Nicodemus but very important for all who would desire to be like Jesus and escape hell.
There should be no doubt that God loves us all equally, regardless of our sins, after reading this I’m convinced. JESUS CHRIST has mercy on all sinners, no matter how great their sin is? There is no sin greater than the other…Remember, don’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you do.
THE GOSPEL OF NICODEMUS, FORMERLY CALLED THE ACTS OF PONTIUS PILATE 20:5-14
5. And while the holy Enoch and Elias were relating this, behold there came another man in a miserable figure carrying the sign of the cross upon his shoulders. 6 And when all the saints saw him, they said to him, Who art thou? For thy countenance is like a thief’s; and why dost thou carry a cross upon thy shoulders? 7 To which he answering, said, Ye say right, for I was a thief who committed all sorts of wickedness upon earth. 8 And the Jews crucified me with Jesus; and I observed the surprising things which happened p. 88 in the creation at the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus. 9 And I believed him to be the Creator of all things, and the Almighty King; and I prayed to him, saying, Lord, remember me, when thou comest into thy kingdom.
10 He presently regarded my supplication, and said to me, Verily I say unto thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise. 1 11 And he gave me this sign of the cross saying, Carry this, and go to Paradise; and if the angel who is the guard of Paradise will not admit thee, shew him the sign of the cross, and say unto him: Jesus Christ who is now crucified, hath sent me hither to thee. 12 When I did this, and told the angel who is the guard of Paradise all these things, and he heard them, he presently opened the gates, introduced me, and placed me on the right-hand in Paradise, 13 Saying, Stay here a little time, till Adam, the father of all mankind, shall enter in, with all his sons, who are the holy and righteous servants of Jesus Christ, who was crucified. 14 When they heard all this account from the thief, all the patriarchs said with one voice, Blessed be thou, O Almighty God, the Father of everlasting goodness, and the Father of mercies, who hast shewn such favour to those who were sinners against him, and hast brought them to the mercy of Paradise, and hast placed them amidst thy large and spiritual provisions, in a spiritual and holy life. Amen.
[Although this Gospel is, by some among the learned, supposed to have been really written by Nicodemus, who became a disciple. of Jesus Christ, and conversed with him; others conjecture that it was a forgery towards the close. of the third century by some zealous believer, who observing that there had been appeals made by the Christians of the former age, to the Acts of Pilate, but that such Acts could not be produced, imagined it would be of service to Christianity to fabricate and publish this Gospel; as it would both confirm the Christians under persecution, and convince the Heathens of the truth of the Christian religion. The Rev. Jeremiah Jones says, that such pious frauds were very common among Christians even in the first three centuries; and that a forgery of this nature, with the view above mentioned, seems natural and probable. The same author, in noticing that Eusebius, in his Ecclesiastical history, charges the Pagans with having forged and published a book, called “The Acts of Pilate,” takes occasion to observe, that the internal evidence of this Gospel produced, imagined it would be of service to Christianity to fabricate and publish this Gospel; as it would both confirm the Christians under persecution, and convince the Heathens of the truth of the Christian religion. Rev. Jeremiah Jones says, that such pious frauds were very common among Christians even in the first three centuries; and that a forgery of this nature, with the view above mentioned, seems natural and probable. The same author, in noticing that Eusebius, in his Ecclesiastical history, charges the Pagans with having forged and published a book, called “The Acts of Pilate,” takes occasion to observe, that the internal evidence of this Gospel shows it was not the work of any Heathen; but that if in the latter end of the third century we find it in use among Christians (as it was then certainly in some churches) and about the same time find a forgery of the Heathens under the same title, it seems exceedingly probable that some Christians, at that time, should publish such a piece as this, in order partly to confront the spurious one of the Pagans, and partly to support those appeals which had been made by former Christians to the Acts of Pilate; and Mr. Jones says, he thinks so more particularly as we have innumerable instances of forgeries by the faithful in the primitive ages, grounded on less plausible reasons. Whether it be canonical or not, it is of very great antiquity, and is appealed to by several of the ancient Christians. The present translation is made from the Gospel published by Grynæus in the Orthodoxographa, vol. i. tom. ii. p. 643.] p. 64
This is the most extraordinary book I have ever read from the Apocrypha; “The Lost Books of the Bible.” It’s 22 chapters. I put the last chapter Because it’s extremely important and amazing; however, the entire book is extraordinary! I’ve included a link that takes you to the entire Book of THE GOSPEL OF NICODEMUS. If you have the time please read this book. You will be amazed at how much information the elite has hidden from us for hundreds of years.
The GOSPEL of NICODEMUS, formerly called the ACTS of PONTIUS PILATE.
1 Pilate goes to the temple; calls together the rulers, and scribes, and doctors. 2 Commands the gates to be shut; orders the book of the Scripture; and causes the Jews to relate what they really knew concerning Christ. 14 They declare that they crucified Christ in ignorance, and that they now know him to be the Son of God, according to the testimony of the Scriptures; which, after they put him to death, they are examined.
AFTER these things Pilate went to the temple of the Jews, and called together all the rulers and scribes, and doctors of the law, and went with them into a chapel of the temple. 2 And commanding that all the gates should be shut, said to them, I have heard that ye have a certain large book in this temple; I desire you therefore, that it may be brought before me. 3 And when the great book, carried by four ministers of the temple, and adorned with gold and precious stones, was brought, Pilate said to them all, I adjure you by the God of your Fathers, who made and commanded this temple to be built, that ye conceal not the truth from me. 4 Ye know all the things which are written in that book; tell me therefore now, if ye in the Scriptures have found any thing of that Jesus whom ye crucified, and at what time of the world he ought to have come: shew it me.
5 Then having sworn Annas and Caiaphas, they commanded all the rest who were with them to go out of the chapel. 6 And they shut the gates of the temple and of the chapel, and said to Pilate, Thou hast made us to swear, O judge, by the building of this temple, to declare to thee that which is true and right. 7 After we had crucified Jesus, not knowing that he was the Son of God, but supposing he wrought his miracles by some magical arts, we summoned a large assembly in this temple. 8 And when we were deliberating among one another about p. 90 the miracles which Jesus had wrought, we found many witnesses of our own country, who declared that they had seen him alive after his death, and that they heard him discoursing with his disciples, and saw him ascending unto the height of the heavens, and entering into them; 9 And we saw two witnesses, whose bodies Jesus raised from the dead, who told us of many strange things which Jesus did among the dead, of which we have a written account in our hands.
10 And it is our custom annually to open this holy book before an assembly, and to search there for the counsel of God. 11 And we found in the first of the seventy books, where Michael the archangel is speaking to the third son of Adam the first man, an account that after five thousand five hundred years, Christ the most beloved Son of God was come on earth, 12 And we further considered, that perhaps he was the very God of Israel who spoke to Moses, Thou shalt make the ark of the testimony; two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 1 13 By these five cubits and a half for the building of the ark of the Old Testament, we perceived and knew that in five thousand years and a half (one thousand) years, Jesus Christ was to come in the ark or tabernacle of a body;.
14 And so our scriptures testify that he is the son of God, and the Lord and King of Israel. 15 And because after his suffering, our chief priests were surprised at the signs which were wrought by his means, we opened that book to search all the generations down to the generation of Joseph and Mary the mother of Jesus, supposing him to be of the seed of David; 16 And we found the account of the creation, and at what time he made the heaven and the earth and the first man Adam, and that from thence to the flood, were two thousand, two hundred and twelve years. 17 And from the flood to Abraham, nine hundred and twelve. And from Abraham to Moses, four hundred and thirty. And from Moses to David the king, five hundred and ten. 18 And from David to the Babylonish captivity, five hundred years. And from the Babylonish captivity to the incarnation of Christ, four hundred years. 19 The sum of all which amounts to five thousand and half (a thousand). 20 And so it appears, that Jesus whom we crucified, is Jesus Christ the Son of God, and true and Almighty God. Amen.
In the name of the Holy Trinity, thus end the Acts of our Saviour Jesus Christ, which the Emperor Theodosius the Great found at Jerusalem, in the hall of Pontius Pilate among the public records; the things were acted in the nineteenth year of Tiberius Cæsar, Emperor of the Romans, and in the seventeenth year of the government of Herod the son of Herod king of Galilee, on the eighth of the calends of April, which is the twenty-third p. 91 day of the month of March, in the CCIId Olympiad, when Joseph and Caiaphas were Rulers of the Jews; being a History written in Hebrew by Nicodemus, of what happened after our Saviour’s crucifixion.
50) Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where did you come from?’, say to them, ‘We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established [itself] and became manifest/clear through their image.’ If they say to you, ‘Is it you?’, say, ‘We are its children, we are the elect/chosen of the Living Father.’ If they ask you, ‘What is the sign of your father in you?’, say to them, ‘It is movement and repose.'”
