Hey Steve,

I'm with you bro--but the fact is Jesus would have had short hair, as Jewish men did in First Century Palestine! You need to get your hands on Joan E Taylor, WHAT DID JESUS LOOK LIKE? (T & T Clark) for a scholarly answer to this question. She provides evidence that portraits of Christ with long hair and a long beard are based on stock images of pagan emperors, with the intention of turning gentile culture on its head by proclaiming that Jesus alone was Lord. However, Taylor provides all the evidence you need (including early Judaeo-Christian art) to show that Jesus would have had short hair.
