This is because Jesus was not especially handsome and there was “nothing special in His appearance that would make Him stand out” which matches with the many New Testament references of Him easily slipping through the crowds.He was not desirous to look upon nor had no beauty (in the Jewish vernacular this means that He wasn’t handsome).He wouldn’t make a popular itinerant preacher today.
Every bit of the carpenters work was extremely labor intensive and so we should realize that Jesus had to have been a big, strong man with great physical strength, yet He kept this strength under control in what is a good description of meekness: Strength under control.They had no power tools of course so the wood had to be cut by using hand tools and great physical labor which must have took long, tedious hours to work with.The wood was not like what we see today; two by fours or four by sixes. These timbers had to be cut down by hand and they had to be sawed down into workable sections. And carpenters in those days worked with stone more than they did wooden beams.Jesus’ humanity made Him out to be no different looking than any other man of the day.Otherwise, we really don’t know what Jesus looked like other than He was an ordinary looking man, that He was strong and extremely physically fit and that He was able to blend in with the crowds very easily.
