Interesting. Why do you think Jesus had short hair? Short hair with locks, or just short hair?

The Jews were very good at being dominated. They adopted the styles,mores and customs of their captors to keep the peace, so to speak.
Jesus has always been shown as long haired, but the scriptures condemn long hair on a man.

The Roman hair style of the time was short hair.

Jesus was not a rebel, but the truth, and by so being, was anathema to anything false.

His truth demanded of well meaning, but (IMO) misreligioned (If that's not a word, I coin it) ... artists to depict Jesus as a long haired man when that goes against His own truth, the scriptures, that it is a shame for a man to have long hair.
