Q. It is noted that Yahshua and his Disciples had long hair. And I imagine many men of that time had long hair as well. Actually, the short hair and clean shaven look is that of the Romans, and their influence. I myself do not wish to look ROMAN. So please show me in the Scriptures where I am instructed to cut my hair.
A. The sign of one under a Nazarite vow was the long hair. That by itself made the man different than the rest of the Israelites. Thus, it is clear that the average Israelite did indeed trim his hair. Numbers 6:5 shows us this is true. The man was to let the locks of the hair of his head grow. Is this not a departure from the norm, to let one’s hair grow when under the Nazarite vow? This is counter to your statement that short hair is representative of Roman culture and unproven. Israelites wore a beard. So did Yahshua, Isaiah 50:6. The pictures portraying Yahshua with long hair have no basis for long hair.
