I don't entirely agree with that. His Incarnation was a real event, happened in the real world, he really walked around, ate, slept, preached, performed signs, was crucified, died, was buried, and rose from the dead.
He had a specific appearance, because He was really here. He was a man, not a woman; He was Jewish, not Chinese.
To say that what he looked like is unimportant could lead to suggesting that he wasn't real at all.
Not in the least. What does it matter what he looked like? Does it matter to you all that much beyond simple curiousity?
I just think it matters to God that the image God sees in our hearts is that of his son Jesus. What we see isn’t as important as what God sees in us!
...first, when Thomas expressed his doubts in the resurrection, Christ did not declare him a heretic and drive him from the community; He offered him physical evidence. Christ's corporeal nature and human form is central to our faith.
Second, if for argument's sake, one allows that the shroud is authentic, one has to ask whether or not our Lord and Savior left it here merely to be ignored by the faithful...
I entirely agree with you.
