Philosophical post, Vinegar Taster, thoughts and rants

Vinegar TasterCome across a post which makes me rethink about Philosophy and Humanity. Jack Lilly of Druid Journal comment about Vinegar Taster (三酸图),

"often wondered what Jesus would be doing in this painting. Would he scowl in anger, as he did at the money-changers in his father’s temple? Would he react with indifference, as when he callously said “You’ll always have the poor, you won’t always have me”? Or would he smile, as when … hmmm… did he ever smile? … "

Did he ever smile..? Can you imagine a man who knew he is about to accomplish the greatest task in humanity history, don’t smile? I am quite intrigue with such kind of thinking, and revisiting historical event.
