Jesus’ problems

“Indeed, He will speak to this people
Through stammering lips and a foreign tongue,”. Isaiah 28:11

Did Jesus stutter?
“Then Moses said to the Lord, “Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Exodus 4:10
And Moses also stuttered?

“He has no stately form or majesty
That we should look upon Him,
Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” Isaiah 53:2-3

Was Jesus also ugly? Yes. He stuttered, was unattractive, sorrowful, and sickly. He was not one of the beautiful people. This was so that the truly humble would be his followers, and not those that want to hang out with the stars. You could also say he was a redneck:

“They answered him, “You are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee.” Everyone went to his home.” John 7:52
