Tall enough to get the job done. We don't have this informatoin about the historical Jesus. He was probably average for the time...but that's my opinion. Jesus was more than likely of average height and built impressively. He was a carpenter, so he probably had strong arm muscles. He walked around everywhere he went so he probably had impressive leg muscles as well. Given all that, he was a perfect man on top of that. So he must have had a commanding and authoritative appearance about him. The average height of humans was apparently less in that time, around 5 feet.
The historical Jesus pre-existed as the Word and was revealed in the Biblical Scriptures. However the physical Jesus did not only appear for 33 1/2 years on earth as a man as foretold by the Scriptures, but as is testified by the Scriptures, he also appeared to His followers after His resurrection. One of the promises that He made before He ascended was that He would never leave them nor forsake them. This promise was to His followers of all time. Now in the spirit realm and accessible only there as the Scriptures testify, He has also promised visions and dreams and prophecies that continue today and until there is no more need for hope or faith.
Consistent with the Scriptures He has appeared in vision to even His present day followers for various purposes, one of which has been to show how He appeared when He walked the earth in physical presence. If you can believe all, then you can believe that here is the record of His revelation to the prophet.
He was about 5 foot 7 inches tall. He had dark brown hair that was slightly curly, what some would call wavy. He had an olive colored skin. His forehead was high and the nose mostly straight but ever so slightly angled a bit up about 2/3 or so of the way down. His build was medium. He wore a trimmed full beard. In this particular vision all His hair was the same length curling slightly at the bottom, swaying back and forth above His shoulders as He walked. His eyebrows were wide (top to bottom) but allowed for the skin to be seen through them. He was nice looking but, of course, had nothing but absolute wholesomeness in His expression. The line of His face was forward from under the nose down in comparison to the line of His forehead.
This is consistent with the Scriptures in that a short man, Zacheus, could not see him above the heads of those of the crowd. Some have seen Him in vision much taller, but this was the purpose of the vision spoken of, to show His appearance when He walked the earth.
I will be the first to admit that the final verdict on the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin has yet to be reached. Perhaps a conclusive answer may never be made. However, the Shroud has been thoroughly studied by a number of anatomists who have used various formulas and calculations that all seem to indicate that the person (Jesus?) depicted on the cloth was between 5'11" and 6'1". Excavations of Jewish tombs from the 1st century show that a height of 6' would not have been any more unusual than it is today. See the link below for more information.
There is absolutely no evidence known to history, literature, or science as to the precise size or appearance of Jesus of Nazareth. Assuming that he was of average size for the time, he would have been no taller than 5 feet, 6 inches or so. Any taller and he would have been easy to spot in a crowd, and the Gospels are clear on the point that he was able to escape apprehension several times by slipping away through the crowds.
This also requires that he would not have looked much different form the rest of the people around him, and because they were almost all Semitic, that means he, born (as was supposed) of Jewish parents, was Jewish (Semitic). This means he had olive-colored skin, coarse black long hair (Nazarites did not cut their hair), a coarse black bushy beard, and was quite hairy over his body. He was not blond-haired or blue-eyed, not fair-skinned, and not built so thinly that you could count his ribs, as is the case in many Medieval and Renaissance depictions of him.
His body type would have been very brawny, because he was a carpenter in an age before power tools. In order to save money, he probably cut down his own trees with his own axe, sawed his own planks and hammered his own nails with a very heavy stone hammer, as taught by his father, Joseph. Thus, he would have looked like a lumberjack.
