Jesus had a beard

If the Shroud of Turin actually shows the face of Jesus, then it is interesting to note that, yes, Jesus did have a beard, and quite a full one. His face is also stockier and more rectangular than the delicate face we are accustomed to seeing in paintings.

Mila (the woman I am courting) pointed out to me that it is notable that this image had to wait for modern technology (i.e., photographic negatives) before it could be clearly shown.
