Was Jesus a red head with beautiful eyes ?



Was Jesus a red head ? אַדְמוֹנִי   If hair color is maternal maybe ....

"So Samuel asks: “Don’t you have any more sons?” Jesse, a little flustered, responds: “Well, there is still the youngest one, but he is out tending sheep.” The little one is David. Samuel demands that Jesse go get him and as soon as little red-headed David bar Jesse appears, Samuel knows he is the one. Despite the fact that physically he’s not so impressive, he has what it takes to be the strong leader Israel needs."

 וַיִּשְׁלַח וַיְבִיאֵהוּ וְהוּא אַדְמוֹנִי עִם יְפֵה עֵינַיִם וְטוֹב רֹאִי וַיֹּאמֶר יְהֹוָה קוּם מְשָׁחֵהוּ כִּי זֶה הוּא:

From Samuel 1 16:12  http://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/15845/jewish/Chapter-16.htm

If Jesus (Yeshua bar yosef) was decended from David bar jesse through Mary's line, and hair color is maternal it is possible Jesus also had read hair. If "ruddy" is referring to complexion then maybe David, and Jesus were red skinned ? coloring ? Maybe David belonged to maternal Haplogroup X2a ? One day DNA will settle all these questions.....
