Are there any physical descriptions of Jesus and/or God in the Christian Bible?

Were physical descriptions--like hair or height, etc--ever written of Jesus in the Bible

The Bible contains no physical description of Jesus. The Bible also contains no physical description of God. Any description of God in the Bible that speaks of God's hands or arms is generally interpreted as being metaphorical. Theologians, historians, and artists all have debated the appearance of Jesus over time.

Isaiah 53:2-5 and 53:7(Acts 8:32) prophesied saying Jesus was basically unattractive "no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him." Verses 3-7 clue His identity. He looked like the other apostles. That's why Judas had to point Him out.

There are no physical descriptions of Jesus in the Bible with the exception of the Revelation 1:13-16. The book of Revelation should not, however, be taken too literally. The apocrypha and documents contemporary with the New Testament do provide such descriptions, though. Physical descriptions of the appearances of the Holy Spirit include the dove and the fire.

There are many scences in the Bible that refer to the description of Jesus wearing all white robes and having long brown hair. The only refence to Gods description is being seen as a burning bush for instance. Physically God was not seen however.
