Christ's Face Seen in 2,000 Year Old Pop Tart

Click to see detail

The image is eerily familiar: a bearded young man with flowing curly hair.
After lying for nearly 2,000 years hidden in a cave in the Holy Land, the fine detail is difficult to determine. But in a certain light it is not difficult to interpret the marks around the figure’s brow as a crown of thorns. The tiny booklet, a little smaller than a modern credit card, is sealed on all sides and has a three-dimensional representation of a human head on both the front and the back. One appears to have a beard and the other is without. Even the maker’s fingerprint can be seen in the lead impression. Beneath both figures is a line of as-yet undeciphered text in an ancient Hebrew script. -- Hidden in a cave: First ever portrait of Jesus found in 1 of 70 ancient books? | Mail Online

Your Say

The maker's fingerprint? Perhaps the Maker's metaphorical fingerprint as well.
