Early Depiction of Jesus Shows Nappy Hair- Don’t Tell Megyn Fox!

Archaeologists in Spain say they have found one of the world’s earliest known images of Jesus. It is engraved on a glass plate dating back to the 4th Century AD, reports from Spain say.

The pieces were in an excellent state of preservation – 81% of its original area has now been pieced together by scientists.

El Mundo notes that Christ looks very different from later depictions: he has no beard, his hair is not too long and he is wearing a philosopher’s toga.
