There is nothing like image of jesus . The image of Jesus as we see today are just artist’s creation . Further , bible did not give any account of his facial nor physical image except in the book of revelation. All these image business is cramp . If you want life you believe in his words and be born again

There are numerous devotional images from the early Church. Others are attested in the literary record. They all resemble Jesus insofar as they represent a human being, and the Eternal Word did indeed acquire a human nature for our sake. To gaze upon these images is to demonstrate one’s faith in His words. For a fuller discussion of the matter of icons in the early Church, see here.
