Ancient Image of Jesus Found in Egyptian Tomb.

Sup Travellers?! The physical embodiment of Jesus hasn't been seen in a little less than 2000 years so it is unclear what he actually looked like in human form. There weren't cameras in those days so no one was able to snap a photo of him but archaeologists recently found the closest thing to an image of Jesus; a drawing.

According to reports from the Independent UK a team of archaeologists exploring the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchu believe they have uncovered one of the earliest images of Jesus ever found. The image was found painted on one of the walls of the ancient tomb and it shows "a young man with curly hair, dressed in a short tunic and with his hand raised as if giving a blessing,"

Experts believe that the image was painted by Coptic Christians and as we speak they are trying to decipher the inscriptions around the image. 

Almost 50 tons of rock had to be moved to get to the tomb, and archaeologists are still excavating another mysterious structure connected to the tomb by a set of worn steps. 

It could be Jesus or it could just be some random drawing [The Egyptians could have just been bored]. But whoever is the person on that drawing must have been someone really important since 50 tons of rock had to be moved just to get to it.. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
