"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:30)

[http://www.skyhound....n/NGC_2264.html

The Cone Nebula lies in the southern part of NGC 2264, the Christmas Tree cluster. The Nebula is an intense region of starbirth, a chaotic place where new stars are born inside a natal cloud and recently born, hot and massive stars buffet the nursery with intense radiation.
The nebula of gas and dust, lit by surrounding stars, is about 2,500 light-years away.

Faith is belief in what you cannot yet see. That it will come to be and you will see what you believe.

Yep, cool pick but, it's making me have to to pan the screen left and right to read the text. Oh well, I did that once before also, so I guess that I can't kvetch.

Is it just meant to be inspirational? There are pretty cool

If you save the pic and view it a little smaller it's supposed to look like the back of jesus head with a crown of thorns. Well, not exactly but, sorta like that anyway. And I'm a Jew! How come you let me see that first?

The big dark cloud: like a profile view.  You can see the beard, even.  It's a bit big, so you'll have to scroll down.   But it is a cool picture.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I... think I see the european mideivel version of  Jesus.... but, I gotta squint...  Honestly, if I was someone who worshipped him, I'd atleast make sure to have the propper image then one made up....  I'm weird that way... I'd rather honour him by atleast having the correct look.

And...I'm not even going to mention what I thought first when I saw that image...  X)

if you insist.  The closest I can get is that it is 'someone' in backlit silouette, and that only because the OP said "look!  Its Jesus".  Of course, those of a religious disposition would see something of a religious nature.  Kind of like seeing shapes in clouds.

this is of the right side of his body. his profile. the picture i posted before this is a close up of his head and hands. I can't see how it looks like anything other than Jesus. let me know if you still can't see it.

Faith is belief in what you cannot yet see. That it will come to be and you will see what you believe.

I see where you are getting your imagery from now.  But as I said,  it depends on your point of view.  The first time I saw that image, I wouldn't have come to the same conclusion you did.  Probably because I'm not looking for signs of the messiah.

Actually, to me it looks like the Lord Mithra!  What you are calling a "crown of thorns" is very evidentially the cap that Lord Mithra always wears.  He seems to be getting ready to lay the bull again!  Praise Mithra!

Through the grace of our Lord Mithra do we recieve salvation and life eternal.

How do you like that one! Ya'll let me find it first and I was right!

The reason that they chose a more Europeon look for him is that no one knew what he looked like by the time it became the fashon to worship him. I've heard that the image is actually that of Zeus! Besides, who'd believe that a Jew would be totally nailed to the cross. Everybody knows that no self respecting Jew would have anything that wasn't at least 10 percent off! Ha-ha! I know, that was bad but, with a name like Umbarger, it has to be good. And no, I'm not anti-semetic, I'm Jewish.

It's a beautiful picture, but how you got the idea that it even looks human, let alone like Jesus, is beyond me.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours." -Sir Charles Napier
