You can say that about every single religion out there. No need to pick just one.

So, the Hagia Sofia in Turkey was built in 360... Aren't the icons there just as old if not older? And they STILL haven't uncovered all the icons and artwork there as much of it was plastered over by the mulims when it was turned into a mosque somewhere around 1450.

I had that same thought. I wish they would find a skeleton of one of these guys so that a forensic anthropologist could show us what he looked like in life. Every culture makes Jesus and his apostles look like members of their own culture (which is kind of nice in a way). Jesus would be pretty surprised if he could see all his portraits with blue eyes and blond hair... I wonder if Jesus had a sense of humor?

The New Testament was written right around the same time period. What we know as Christianity today really doesn't have much to do with Christianity in the first century after Christ's death. Church leaders were still arguing about essential points of Christianity into the 4th Century and beyond. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicene_Creed http://www.philosophyforum.net/Religion/Nicene_Creed%20_Ice.htm This is a nice find for the world of art, but as realistic pictures of Jesus' disciples, not so much.

You may be interested in this web site which contains Edgar Cayce's psychic vision of the Last Supper scene: Then down at the bottom there's a letter written by a Roman citizen that describes Jesus Christ's physical appearance. You can tell that this guy was fascinated with Christ. This deion matches up with what Cayce said and also Leonardo Da Vinci's famous painting. Cayce also said that Leonardo painted a picture of Mary Magdalene and somehow Leonardo captured what Mary Magdalene really looked like: This is interesting because this painting was discovered sometime...

Priests were not required to be celibate until the 11th century. The real problem was that they were passing church property down to their descendants and this was causing difficulties in the church. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/03481a.htm LOL, of course this is what the Catholic church would say. http://www.futurechurch.org/fpm/history.htm
