Spanish Egyptologists have discovered what could be one of the oldest images of Jesus Christ, painted on the walls of a mysterious underground structure deep in an ancient Egyptian tomb.

A team of Catalan archaeologists have returned from the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus after uncovering a mystery underground structure in buried tombs which date from the 6th and 7th centuries.

Previous digs in Oxyrynchus have unearthed temples dedicated to Osiris, the Egyptian god of the afterlife, but the exact nature of the latest discovery has left the experts baffled but excited.

Padró described the underground stone structure as "incredibly good, but we don't know what it is".

Over 45 tonnes of rock was moved to get at the hidden treasures, in a meticulous operation overseen by an architect and an engineer.

Once inside, the archaeologists found "five or six coats of paint on the walls, the last of which was from the Coptic period of the first Christians."

Among the plant motifs and inscriptions was something special -- the "figure of a young man, with curly hair, dressed in a short tunic and with his hand raised as if giving a blessing," according to Padró.

"We could be dealing with a very early image of Jesus Christ," he added.

The figure is under protection while a team begins to translate the inscriptions surrounding it.

Archaeological work in the area is continuing as there has still not been time to excavate another unidentified structure connected to the tombs via a set of very worn steps.

Hmm, it's very interesting that theological writings were found at that location.

One of those writings was Apocalypse of Baruch UniqueStranger
en.wikipedia.org

Baruch argues that the Temple has been preserved in heaven and is presented as fully functional and attended by angels; thus there is no need for the temple to be rebuilt on earth. This third book of Baruch addresses the question of why God permits good people to suffer, and answering with a vision of the afterlife in which sinners and the righteous get their just rewards

Couldn't the Coptics have just used Instagram? So much easier than painting on a rock. coffeetime.gif

Actually, it would have been awesome to have hung out with Jesus back in the day. Cool dude thru and thru.

Pray for me. hug.gif

Here is the location of Ox...

The Holy Family in Egypt:

It is clear by comparing the location of Ox with the Holy Family journeys, that they were in that area and visited many places. So, I would think that if Jesus did travel as an adult why would he not return to Egypt where he and his family lived and travelled?

Here is some information on Jesus: The Lost Years...

Pressing Questions Encountered in Jesus: The Lost Years

1) How did Egypt change Jesus’ life and influence his teachings?
2) Can the ancient oral stories become a part of history? Why or why not?
3) Did Jesus perform miracles in Egypt?
4) Where did Jesus go while in Egypt? Who did he meet? What did he see?

“This extraordinary film shows sites and tells stories about Jesus that are virtually unknown outside of Egypt,” says Executive Producer Norman A. Miles, who formed Bent Pyramid Productions to create the documentary. “It reveals the secret childhood of Jesus.”Jesus: The Lost Years combines adventure, spirituality and a modern-day pilgrimage into the ancient and often baffling land of Egypt. Shot in HD and filmed in ancient church catacombs, the teeming back streets of Cairo, and the secret desert monasteries haunted by saints, Perry turns up shards of the past to reveal a very different side of Jesus."

Hey AK, one would hope one would get their just rewards in the afterlife.

They also found Pindar's poems:

Creatures for a day! What is a man? What is he not? A dream of a shadow Is our mortal being. But when there comes to men A gleam of splendour given of heaven, Then rests on them a light of glory And blessed are their days. (Pythian 8)

Ain't no faith
like a Faith that will cause you to mess up your Tomb with Graffiti .

Here's a question

If Jesus died for Mans Sin .

Define why the term Sin ,,, was thought up


and why the hell there is STILL SIN

get it ?

there is no such thing as Sin , until you make something a Sin .

like : it is a Sin to Fornicate

get out of here , just blow away

take the best experience the flesh can have

a call it a Sin ?

Oh yeah , that's freaking brilliant

it's the same as making a weed a crime

since weed became a crime

millions of people suffered as criminals

any time people suffer because some moron gets to call the shots

THAT'S THE PROBLEM

which you can also call a Sin

Sin is a Term used in certain Societies for an act that offends the awful retentive
of those Societies .

I don't think we need a God Son , to die because a bunch of assholes
were offended .

it is all relative

like this

I think it is a Sin to brutalize people by the orders of some superstitious Pope .

it is a sin to burn people at the stake because some asswipe suffering dementia
believes that person to be a Witch .

I think it is a Sin to pass laws based on some superstition that most thinking people
would never fall for .

Especially since all religions were invented by FEAR of what was unknown at the time .

Eve ate the forbidden fruit and doomed us all. Now we're sinful by default. Or at least according to the church.

Yeah, what Ca said.

Screw distant desert goat shepherd people's evil god.
Hebrew bible got j**k s**t on me.

I'd go with Kalevala and Lemminkäinen any old time.
If forced to choose. Roots and Culture, man doobie.gif

Believing 1 particular deity more real than any other d:o,
ever worshiped by 1 or more humans, is just...well, wish
we had that frustrated-Putin emote on here.

Bloody interesting from a historical angle, though.
