  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Usually John, believed to be the youngest of the Apostles, is shown with his head laid down, or sleeping, or reclining next to Jesus. Almost all Last Suppers show the 12 remaining Apostles, so if one is Mary, which Apostle is always being left out?

Lots of pictures at Wiki with no woman, but lots with a young John.

The artist of the day often painted a young, sometimes feminine, looking Apostle John, but don't let that fool you. The Bible calls John and his brother James "the sons of thunder" and they were ready to call fire down on a city that rejected their message about Jesus. However, Jesus rebuked them for their rash behavior.

That assumes, however that the cells in the offsprings body only come from the mother. From a purely scientific view that might be true, but that of courses discounts the supernatural. A transcendent God who made everything from nothing would have not trouble in producing a male offspring from a virgin.

Yup ,   total of 12 apostles in the painting.  Just sayin...   the one on Jesus' right almost always looks  VERY feminine...  none more so than  the original Davinci version.   ...Except maybe in the print on my wall.  

Hey i know!  ...  one of the twelve took the picture!*   :w00t:     . . . (lol)

The first painting of the last supper was in 1308 by  Duccio, where did he get the descriptions from to paint them like that, because the descriptions of jesus varies, let alone his posse.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Jesus was well documented by the Romans and was definitely male!
