More than picture book Jesus

Psalm 105:4
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

Bethany asked me what Jesus looked like. I explained that no one really knows what he looked like because a long time ago there weren't any cameras.
She confidently said, "Well! I know what he looked like." I said, "Oh, yeah? What did he look like?" "Well, he had kinda long hair and a white...gown lookin' thing on." When I asked, how she knew what he looked like, she said, "I saw him in a picture in (so-so's) basement. Yeah, he is telling people what to do and how to be nice and use their manners. Like say excuse me and all that stuff."
I explained, that he probably did have longer hair and did dress that way, but some one just drew his face the way they imagined it might've looked.
