A team of Spanish archaeologists has unearthed what one expert says could be one of the most ancient images of Jesus, painted on the walls of an underground structure in an Egyptian tomb.

The Egyptologists from Catalonia made the discovery in the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus, with the tombs said to date from the 6th and 7th centuries.

The leader of the search team, Josep Padró, a 20-year veteran of excavations in the region, told the Spanish-language newspaper La Vanguardia the find was “exceptional.”

Why did Jesus say believers would be sitting down on His throne just as He sits down on His Father’s throne? Find out in this personally autographed best-seller!

According to the Local, the discovery by a joint team from the Catalan Egyptology Society and the University of Barcelona has caused such a buzz that even Egypt’s minister of antiquities, Mohamed Ibrahim, is now personally involved. He broke the news himself in a press release which described the contents of the tombs, which are thought to have belonged to a well-known writer and a family of priests.



Palestinian Christian Woman — Who Believes God Gave Israel to the Jews — Says She Had to Flee Bethlehem after Death Threats

A Palestinian Christian woman says she fled her hometown of Bethlehem and was granted political asylum in Britain due to threats on her life after she criticized Palestinian terrorism and expressed support for Israel’s right to exist.

The women, who has identified herself as “Christy,” posted a 25-minute video on YouTube in which she detailed the extent of the persecution of Palestinian Christians, the incitement to violence, institutional corruption, and the second class status of women under Palestinian Authority rule.

After traveling to Sweden in recent weeks where she gave a candid speech to students at Uppsala University, Christy said that her uncle threatened to kill her for endangering their family which still resides in Bethlehem.

Was Jesus really crucified in a 'T' shape ?

A new study has suggested that the traditional depiction of Jesus on the cross could be wrong.

Scientists in Liverpool have based their findings on the controversial Turin Shroud, the ancient burial cloth of Jesus himself that is said to bear his image.

The stained outline appears to show a man with blood streaming down his arms in a way that, according to researchers, shouldn't be possible if Jesus was crucified in the traditional 'T' shape depicted in Christian art.

Instead, they argue, in order for the blood to have flowed in such a manner Jesus would have had to be crucified in a 'Y' shape with his hands above his head.

This alternative position would have not only been more painful but could have also caused breathing difficulties, resulting in death from asphyxiation.

Given the dubious origins of the shroud itself however these findings have been met with a considerable degree of skepticism.

Did an earthquake create the Turin Shroud ?

Scientists in Italy believe that the image of Christ on the shroud may have been caused by an earthquake.

For years the Turin Shroud, a length of linen cloth thought to bear the image of Christ after his crucifixion, has been at the center of controversy and debate. Some maintain that the shroud is likely to be the genuine article while others are more skeptical, believing it instead to be a medieval forgery.

Now a research team from Italy has weighed in on the debate by claiming that a powerful earthquake that took place in 33 AD triggered a release of neutron particles, effectively imprinting the image of Jesus' body on the cloth like an X-ray.

In addition to explaining the origins of the image, the research also suggests that a corresponding increase in the level of carbon-14 isotopes in the cloth could have fooled radiocarbon tests that indicated that the shroud was only 768 years old.

"We believe it is possible that neutron emissions by earthquakes could have induced the image formation on the Shroud's linen fibres, through thermal neutron capture on nitrogen nuclei, and could also have caused a wrong radiocarbon dating," said Professor Alberto Carpinteri who led the study

Abraham Lincoln, 1863 (Wikimedia Commons/ Alexander Gardner)

Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States, guided the country through the Civil War and maintained the Union despite a committed insurgency from the Confederacy. He rose to prominence during the 1858 Illinois Senate race, when he and rival Stephen Douglas engaged in a widely publicized series of debates. Lincoln ultimately lost the election, but he came back two years later to win the Republican Party's nomination for president, handily winning the general election. When Lincoln took office in 1861, seven southern states seceded from the U.S. over Lincoln's publicly stated opposition to slavery. The break led to the Civil War, the emancipation of America's African slaves and eventually Lincoln's assassination. We remember the remarkable life of Abraham Lincoln today as well as other notable people who died this day in history.

The End of Income Tax

Will Kesler  Activist Post

For the past twelve years I have publicly refused to file an income tax return. Nevertheless, I ski surrounded by peaks soaring to heaven, while praying to remain free from chains.

Along with prayer, I entrust my freedom to the most concise, explicit law I am aware of that proves that there is no law that requires a citizen to file an income tax return. One law, among many laws, that would compel a jury to see the light and proclaim "Income Tax is History!" So here it is, in all its glory, the end of income tax, my stay out of jail card and an open invitation to peaceful revolution.

(Hollywood Reporter) “Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War” aims to “prove to the viewer that he was silenced because his views didn’t go along with the status quo,” says the filmmaker.

A film in the works now and aiming for a release date next year makes the case that Gen. George Patton, who died three months after the end of World War II, was assassinated, perhaps by the KGB, due to his outspoken opposition to Communism and the former USSR.

The feature-length documentary, dubbed Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War, is from writer-director Robert Orlando. The filmmaker’s most recent movie, A Polite Bribe, is about the Apostle Paul and set for release through VCI/Cinedigm on Tuesday.

Danica Patrick reveals a side of herself you didn't know

By Sandra U. Lee

If you thought you knew everything about NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, think again. When the 32-year-old sat down with's Brian Balthazar, the most successful professional female race car driver in history revealed five things that might surprise you.

1. Danica has anxiety behind the wheel

She may have the ultimate control on the speedway when she's suited up for a big race, but when she's going to the grocery store in a civilian car the anxiety sets in. "I'm very impatient. I have physical anxiety when riding in a car with someone or driving," says Patrick. She explains that even if she's got her own two hands on the wheel she's still got that need for speed. "If I can't get my way through or if somebody's driving next to someone who won't go... bumper-to-bumper traffic doesn't bother me because there's nothing I can do about it. But if I see open road in front of the car that's in front of me, I get very frustrated... Go!" Take notes, people. If you see Danica Patrick in the rear view mirror? Move!

2. Danica drives crazier than her racer boyfriend

Yes, she's the female face of NASCAR, but there's nothing girly about her behind the wheel. She tells that when it comes to driving off the track the only person she'll cede the wheel to is her boyfriend, fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. "My boyfriend is a race car driver so then now we have a whole new scenario. I drive a lot more crazy on the road than him so I let him get the tickets potentially, not me." How considerate!

Pat Buchanan: Whose Side Is God on Now?

In his Kremlin defense of Russia's annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond.

Crimea, said Putin, "is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus."

Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

This speech recalls last December's address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West:

"Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation."

Heard any Western leader, say, Barack Obama, talk like that lately? More>>>>>>>

Noah COULD have floated his boat, say scientists

The story of a man building a giant wooden boat to help his family and the entire animal kingdom survive a terrifying flood is one of the more contentious parts of the Bible.

But research by physics students suggests that a structure on the scale of Noah's ark as described in the ancient text could have been built.

And what's more, they say it would have been buoyant even with two of every animal on Earth on board.

However, while the ark would have stayed afloat they're not sure if every animal would have fit inside.

A group of fourth year master's students from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester calculated that Noah's ark, built to accommodate at least two of every animal species, would have floated using the dimensions ordained in the Bible
