(Fox News) In the Byzantine desert of the Byzantine Empire, the Byzantine Church found an unbelievable 1500-year-old image of Christ.
Archaeologists are located in ancient Byzantine Shivta village. Experts from the University of Haifa in Israel have cut off the image, but have been able to do it. Their research has recently been published in Antiquity magazine.
The painting, referring to the sixth century CE, refers to Jesus as the short-haired youth.
"The face of Christ in this picture is an important novelty," they explained. "It is widely spread in Egypt and in Siro-Palestine, but shorter wing from the Byzantine art later goes to Christ's iconographic scheme."
