Earliest Known Picture of Jesus Goes on Display

23/09/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (4) Comments

What does Jesus look like when you close your eyes and picture him? Long hair and a beard? Blue eyes even? The oldest images of Jesus ever found go on display today in New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World and there's something distinctly strange about them. The pictures painted closest to the time when Jesus was alive show him with short hair, brown eyes, and, most surprising of all, beardless. More ...

It feels odd to talk about Easter in September, which is why it seems so strange that the Advertising Standards Agency have taken four and a half months to come to a conclusion about Phones4U's Easter advertising campaign. More ...

Controversial Jesus Photograph Slashed in Gallery

21/04/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

One of the most controversial art works about Jesus has been vandalised by Christian protesters whilst on display in a gallery in France. The attack took place the day after a protest march by hundreds of French Catholic fundamentalists complaining about the work's inclusion at the Musée d'art Contemporain in Avignon. There has been tension in the city ever since the "I Believe in Miracles" exhibition began, with online petitions, criticisms of the piece by the Archbishop of Vaucluse and tens of thousands of emails objecting to the exhibition.

TV Review: BBC1’s The Nativity

20/12/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (40) Comments

For many of us our first, and possibly only, acting role was in a nativity play. So it’s strange that so few professional actors get the chance to return to their humble beginnings. The 2006 film The Nativity Story was the first time that an English version of the story had hit the silver screen since 1914. Television has tried a few new approaches to the story, such as 2007’s Liverpool Nativity, but a decent, historical attempt at telling the Christmas Story is long overdue. More ...

With a change of director and a change of studio, the latest instalment in the Chronicles of Narnia series has finally arrived in cinemas after a break of two and a half years. As with the book, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader follows the adventures of the younger two Pevensie children, Lucy and Edmund, and their brattish cousin Eustace, as they arrive back in Narnia via a painting of a Narnian ship. There they rejoin King Caspian and the valiant talking mouse Reepicheep who are on a quest to find seven lost Narnian Lords. More ...

Giant Jesus Raised in Poland

12/11/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

The town of Swiebodzin in Poland is a fairly unremarkable place. With just 22,000 inhabitants it’s only claim to fame, at least until last weekend, was being a crossroads between two of Poland’s major motorways, better known for people passing through than for anything in the town itself.
But as of Sunday the town has an unusual claim to fame. It now hosts the world’s largest statue of Jesus. More ...
