  • Could this be an image of Jesus?

    Archeological find 100 miles from where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

    Somehow looks lion-ish to me. Lion of the tribe of Judah, perhaps?

      Exactly what I was going to say. Looks more like a lion than a human face to me.

        Not sure about the image, but I've been reading about these books the past week or so, and they seem exciting! It will be interesting to see what is discovered as they are researched. The image does look like it could be a human face, maybe with a crown of thorns even, but I can see how it could be a lion, as well, or something completely different. Not sure if people were making representational art of Jesus in that time frame, would be interesting to find out...

          Every article ive seen on these books, refrences Revelation in connection with the books being sealed.
          I'd like to know exactly where they are getting this connection, I do not see any books being symbolically or literally sealed in Revelations.
          More and more from every article i'm coming to the understanding that they are putting alot of effort into hyping these books up for some reason.

          Agree'd though, looks like anything though if you look at it for awhile lol.

            Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Even the article you cite isn't sure that this is a Christian relic.

              Yeah, that'd be embarrassing if it was Bar Kochba...

                Nah, would still be an important historical relic.

                        Its Fenris! ..........
                        My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16

                        "Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)

                            An Oxford academic is willing to stake his career that these are forgeries.

                              I suspect his reputation is quite safe.

                              What possible reason would God have to leave an image of Christ for men to worship in place of the genuine article? God has withheld many artifacts from men that they do not become idols of worship. God is merciful.
