Oldest Painting of Jesus

The Real Deal

Earliest known image of Jesus Christ, from the Coptic Museum in Cairo, Egypt. This painting of Jesus is older than the image of the Moorish Jesus Christ in the Church of Rome.

The Deception Exposed

Several years ago, if you Googled “Oldest Painting of Jesus”, this is what you would get:

Jesus Christ Pantocrator

The description of the painting was quite deceptive. It said, “Oldest Painting of Jesus Christ Pantocrator”.  The deceivers were counting on the viewer being too lazy to research that word: “Pantocrator“.

Do your own investigation and you’ll discover that Pantocrator refers to a certain style of iconography.  Therefore, the Oldest Painting of Jesus Christ Pantocrator IS NOT the same thing as the Oldest Painting of Jesus.  It’s merely the oldest of that (more modern) style.

Google Covers Their Butt

When I first discovered this deception a few years ago, I would tell people about it and they would simply roll their eyes and sigh.  So telling people was a total waste of time, no one seemed to care.  Eventually, I realized that I could combat the lie by publishing the TRUE oldest painting of Jesus on the internet.  Amazingly enough, even though this is a minor website, people began to discover this painting on a daily basis.  Not hundreds of viewers at any one time, mind you.  Nevertheless, a steady stream of daily viewers.

People began to catch on.  As a result, Google was forced to completely change their strategy.  Today, if you Google “Oldest Painting of Jesus” they show you the same painting that is displayed on this website, BUT NOTICE THEIR CONTINUING DECEPTION . . . .

Google Continues to Lie

Here’s what Google says when they show you the real picture:

The oldest known portrait of Jesus, found in Syria and dated to about 235, shows him as a beardless young man of authoritative and dignified bearing. He is depicted dressed in the style of a young philosopher, with close-cropped hair and wearing a tunic and pallium – signs of good breeding in Greco-Roman society.

Now wait a minute!  This is a painting found in Syria.  What’s that got to do with Greece or Rome?  NOTHING.  What they’ve done is taken a painting of an obviously melanated man and linked it up with two non-melanated societies.

Clever, huh?  Since they can no longer get away with showing you an imposter painting, they’ve made a concerted effort to link the TRUE painting in your mind with thoughts of Europeans.

More Deception

Here’s another clever trick they use:

Spanish archaeologists have discovered what may be one of the oldest paintings of Jesus Christ (possibly 6th century AD) in an ancient Egyptian tomb.

The operative words there are: “may be”.  Once you use those two words, you can stick ANYTHING after them.  For example:

Spanish archaeologists have discovered what may be one of the oldest paintings of the First Alien Visitor from ZoobeZoobe (possibly 6th century AD) in an ancient Egyptian tomb.

This is a slick rhetorical trick.  Remember, they didn’t say “. . . IS one of the oldest paintings of Jesus”.  They said “MAY BE.”  Heck, it may be a picture of your great great great great great grandfather, Seymour . . . .

Triumph of the Internet

Believe it or not, Google and Wikipedia refused to show the TRUE Oldest Painting of Jesus Christ until we published it right here on this very website.  By independently placing the authentic painting on the net, the giants were forced to change their tune.  They’re still lying, but at least they’re showing the correct image now.

Which proves that the internet is a powerful tool for positive change.
