    Analyst Sees New Images in 'Last Supper'

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,291229,00.html

    "It came to mind to scan 'The Last Supper' and print it on transparent paper, then superimpose it in reverse on the original image. The result is a new painting, with other figures," Pesci said Wednesday at a news conference.


    He just thought of as many ways possible to disrupt the original image to fill the distorted view of the people in the world who believe and fall for this crap.

    He might as well say "I painted in new figures, and after that everyone that looked at it SAW NEW FIGURES IN THE PAINTING 111!!11!!11one1"

        Even if there were hidden images in DaVinci's paintings, why would we assume they had any significance at all? So what if DaVinci thought that Jesus married Mary Magdelene? I don't see any reason why we should respect his personal beliefs any more than anyone else's.

        I could believe that Jesus went insane and spent his last years living with a herd of antelope in France but that doesn't make it true and I'd hope that other people wouldn't be gullible enough to believe I had some secret inside knowledge.

            You are absolutely spot on!!

            DaVinci's opinion.........whatever that might be ............ is just the opinion of a mere mortal man & does not have any significance whatsoever!!

              I'm not sure what Jesus' marriage (or lack thereof) is supposed to mean as far as Christianity goes.

              What I mean is this...would it blow my faith apart if I were to learn that Jesus married? No...it might even have made sense given the time period and the social expectations of males His age. To discover He was married would not change who He is.

              But the fact of the matter is that there is simply no record of Him having married. One of the apostles would surely have said "Mary Magdalene, wife of Jesus" if that had truly been the case. That they never mentioned it (nor have any other accounts) leads me to believe that Jesus was not married. The Bible doesn't say he was, so I will believe the Bible.

              At the same time, I wonder what the "mainstream" obsession over this issue is really about. Is it that they think He would be less divine if He married? Is it that He would be more "human"? I just don't get it.

                Davinci is just a painter who didn't even live in Jesus' time. He knew none of the apostles and had no first hand knowledge of what went on at the last supper. He was simply a man, with his opinion. That this opinion has spawned worldwide disbelief in Christ is pure satan.

                I will choose to believe the word of God over any man.

                  A computer analyst claims to have discovered new images in Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper," one of the world's most loved religious paintings.
                  I really don't think this is as big a deal as he thinks.

                  If I'm remembering correctly, canvas was so hard to come by back then that it was
                  common practice for painters to reuse them, painting over previous paintings. Although
                  I may be mistaken, I seem to recall DaVinci being one who did this.

                    And not necessarily reuse a canvas, but be working on it, stand back and think 'I don't have that right, let me slap another layer of base coat on it and start over'.

                      Pagemistress, I agree with you. It wouldn't do anything to my faith if I'd found out Jesus had been married and even had children. God ordained marriage and it wouldn't have been wrong. However, that wasn't the purpose for His life here. He had a much higher calling as the Savior and Redeemer of the world. He knew exactly what His life was all about. It even says in the Bible that He didn't have the kind of looks where someone would desire Him. That says to me He was humble (as we know He was), and took His work here very seriously. If He'd been married, then those last hours before the crucifixion might not have been spent in the Garden of Gesthemene, they might have been spent with His wife and children, saying good-bye.....I don't know...just speculating. But because of who He was and His purpose here, He spent that time in prayer, with His father, and preparing for His final earthly destiny.
                      MARANATHA! Our Lord IS coming!

                        http://www.gracethrufaith.com/selah/...us-have-a-wife

                        Why it matters and why this is increasingly being promoted:

                        Excerpt:

                        Here's where the application of some simple logic can work wonders. Would the Bible, with its emphasis on the sanctity of marriage and the importance of family, have omitted something as significant as the marriage of Jesus in capturing the great events of His life?

                        And would the Jewish betrothal customs (so predictive of the Second Coming where our Lord takes the Church as His Bride) which required a public commitment ceremony followed by a year of very limited and closely chaperoned visitation have been ignored and in fact violated by the One Who ordained them?

                        And how about this? Jesus came to be our High Priest. The Law forbids a priest from marrying a woman who isn't a virgin unless she's the widow of another priest. The High Priest couldn't marry a non-priestly widow and was specifically forbidden from marrying a prostitute. (Lev 21:13-14) Jesus said He didn't come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it.

                        In Genesis 6 the Bible says that one reason for the Great Flood was to judge those from the angelic host who took on the appearance of men, married human women and produced children contaminating the human gene pool. Would a Righteous and Just God now take this privilege for Himself while holding those others in chains for judgment? Think about it!

                        But most importantly would God, who became man to offer His sinless life as a ransom for the sins of humanity, have permitted His mission to be destroyed and mankind to be lost by falling into sin Himself? The reason for the restrictive betrothal customs was to keep the couple from yielding to temptation. Remember any sex outside of marriage was punishable by death in those days, and the Lord himself cautioned us that even lustful thoughts render us guilty (Matt 5:28). His own Law required the shedding of innocent blood as the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. In order to be our Savior, He had to remain sinless in thought, word, and deed.



                        Proponents of this theory are trying to portray Jesus as a mere man. Could a man, in love with a beautiful woman, prevent even one lustful thought from entering his mind? And if his betrothed was a former prostitute could he prevent anger and jealousy from ever raising their ugly heads as well? It doesn't make sense!

                        Clearly this notion of a relationship between Mary and Jesus violates both the letter and the spirit of the Law. It's the work of unbelievers who are themselves ignorant of Biblical truth and rely on the ignorance of others for their acceptance.

                        And behind the scene just beyond the limit of our vision stands the Great Deceiver preying on those ignorant souls, using them to distort and pervert the Word of God in his frantic attempt to render humanity hopeless and helpless, portraying our only Savior as having disqualified Himself to redeem us.

                        These attempts will become more and more persuasive as the time draws closer. Let this serve as a warning, that we must know what we believe and why to withstand these attacks on our faith.

                          Yes, it matters. We are the bride of Christ.

                            It matters because they want to chip away at the deity of Jesus. If they can make Him just a prophet instead of fully God and fully Man, then everything becomes guidelines (not to mention it would make Him out to be a liar since He said He and the Father are one). Also, if they can disprove a chunk of the Bible, then the rest falls apart immediately. Either God kept his Word to us, or He didn't. And if He didn't, then everything He's had us do for the past two thousand odd years has been in vain.

                            I for one don't think He lied to us, and I don't think His work was in vain at all. He *is* the only begotten Son of God, and He *did* DIE on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins, and He *did* rise again on the 3rd day, and He *is* now at the right hand of God the Father, *very* much alive. Our God is a God of the living, and He is *very* much alive. And, He *is* coming back as He said He would

                              This is just the enemy at it again... He was able to propagate a big deception before with the "Davinci Code" book and movie . .It worked for him before so hes using it again to cause confusion, chaos and doubts....he has no new tricks he keeps using what works for him...

                              P.s. I was kinda saddened by "OPIE" working on the Davinci Code movie...I hope Andy Griffith, a christian warned him about it..
