Did Jesus have 6 toes on both feet?

Ok, let me start this off by saying this is a LONG SHOT. And by "long shot" I mean, this is completely speculation and probably not true; but hey, what are conspiracies for? Here it goes...

I came across a picture on Deviant Art that is of a stained glass window which seems to depict Jesus with 6 toes on one of his feet. Here's that picture:



Now, here's where the conspiracy part comes in...

A few days ago, I read THIS ARTICLE about different people and entire tribes around the world that are born with 6 digits on their hands and feet. The above image automatically made me think about this article and made me wonder if perhaps the extra Jesus toe and these tribes are somehow related.

Some think that the extra toes and fingers come from long ago when ancient humans interbred with a race of giants. Now we all know that the Bible says giants lived on Earth at one point...and one verse even says they had 6 fingers and 6 toes... 2 Samuel 21 "In still another battle, which took place at Gath, there was a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot--twenty-four in all. He also was descended from Rapha. When he taunted Israel, Jonathan son of Shimeah, David's brother, killed him."

Again, I want to say for all those who are going to skewer me, THIS IS JUST SPECULATION. I don't believe this theory, but it's definitely fun to think about.

So...what do the fellow ATSers think?

All the best,

I say it is a reach.

You realize there will soon be posters telling you that Jesus didn't even exist, right?

Yeah..I think Jesus and the Hemingway cats are all related.

Can you tell when I am joking? Joking. Really, who knows?

haha "a reach" is a major understatement. and yes, i've come to realize that most of ats just wants to debunk every word of anything instead of having an interesting conversation about an outlandish topic.

thanks for reading!

Well Jesus didn't exist, except in books, cartoons, and movies... so that should solve the mystery.

However the phenomenon does exist and is pretty cool...

Christ on crutches. No one knows for certain if he had two, three, or four toes....let alone six and, unless someone is alive today who claims to have known Jesus personally, then this will have to remain a burning question for you, OP.

I think this is more a case of the artists bias than reality...
...offspring of the Nephyl had six digits on each limb for example Goliath who David slew.


2 Samuel 21:20-22 "And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant. 21 And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him. 22 These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants."

I never said this was a "burning question" for me. I don't even believe it. I simply posted it here because I thought it was fun to think about. Clearly you took me too seriously...

Yes, EvilBat confirmed that the artist did it himself.

Alas, Jesus did not have a birth defect.
