The image, hosted on the BBC special Jesus: The Complete Story, is based off a British reconstruction of a 1st Century Israelite that would have lived during Jesus's time period, so while as random picking a single man from a Modern population to represent all men of that time period it is a forensice attempt at portraying the people of the time:
The hair style is based off images of Ancient jews from the same time period and the skin tone is based on a Biblical passage about Jesus's family fleeing to Egypt to escape persecution from Herod.
The historians who were referenced for this section of the reconstruction concluded that Israelites must not have looked very different from Egyptians at this time period if an Israelite family could have so easily blended into the Egyptian population.
So there had to be aparalell between the physical appearance of the Israelites with that of the Egyptians.
I remember whites calling this images the images of a criminal. Anyway, I posted early images.
The Northeast (lower) Egypt of Africa by that time in particular looked like the Fayum. Hence, not white. Science says they were mixed with incoming populations, but still clustered more with indigenous Africans from the South of Egypt/ North of Sudan.
Eye witness Flavius Josephus describes a man, referring at the individual Jesus/ Joshua Ben Pantera as: Short, dark skinned, with curly/ frizzy hair. And underdeveloped beard.
This is how the tradition is remembered, and rightfully so. lol
