Is this the face of the apostle Paul?


www.wnd.com

A newly uncovered artwork in the catacombs of Rome has some experts believing it's the oldest image of the Christian apostle Paul.
The faded image shows a man with a triangular-shaped face and pointed beard as he looks straight ahead.

According to published reports in Europe, the fresco dating back to the 4th century was discovered during restoration work at the Catacomb of St. Thekla, but was kept secret for ten days. The catacomb, or Christian burial place, is close to the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in Rome, which is said to be built on the location where Paul was buried

Im not very hip on religious history, so I believed that members here could shed some light on the subject.

I recieved a newsletter in the mail from WND.

Interesting none theless, this picture was seen for the first time in 1600 years.

I dont know what impact this will have to the religious and non religious folk out there, but nevertheless, its quite interesting.

Hi again!

Saint Paul was Himself an Iconographer!
He was the First to paint Theotokos-Mother of God Icon.
Impact?
I dont think this would impact any Christian....faith is not based on what is found in terms of wordly objects..my thoughts anyway!

From what I read, Paul wrote most of the stories in the New Testiment.
I guess they found his body according to this article and another thread just recently posted.

Wth this being announced plus this so call revealing of the ark so called gods ark. Something is comming. Or is it here. I fear either they are loosing tier flock, or they are revealing this because something more sinister is at work in this world right now.

Anyone know of any false prophets lately?

Hi Larauk/

I dont and can't help you with false prophets, but I can help you with True ones! "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing
but He revealeth His secret unto His servants,
the Prophets." (Amos 3, 7)
Revealeth His Secret unto His Servants,the True prophets~

This is neat, could you imagine the things you'd find in the Vatican's basement? Treasures and information lost to man for thousands of years, all just sitting down there, hoarded by the fat beast that is Rome.

Although, the OP did mention the info came from WorldNetDaily, which has a bit of a reputation.
