Coins Depicting Jesus Uncovered?

Dr. Ronald Stewart : Nov 25, 2013  Independent Archaeology

Referring to discovered coins that may depict Jesus, Dr. Tim White of Northwest University says, "The 3D imaging analysis of early coins with possible pictures of Jesus is very intriguing."

Jesus Coins (Gonzales, TX)—In what appears to be a very significant discovery of Art and Art History from the 1st century A.D., historian, historical archaeologist, and imaging inventor Ronald Stewart, ThD, PhD is stating that he has possibly uncovered hand-struck coins minted sometime between 33-47 A.D. which have images and depictions of Jesus Christ—many which correlate to well-known Biblical events. Research is ongoing, but these initial findings would be a major development throughout art history, Christianity, Near Eastern history, and numismatics.

Prior to this unique discovery, the earliest known depiction of the face or likeness of Jesus Christ was in 235 A.D., in what is known as "The Healing of the Paralytic." This has long been a concern for believers (and others), insofar as there were no (extant) drawings, painting, or other images of Jesus for the 200 years immediately after Christ's death.

Likewise, the earliest image of Jesus on a coin showed up in a Byzantine gold coin estimated to be from 692 A.D.

Examples of readily-identified Biblical stories of Christ which Stewart has seen on these coins include: Jesus healing the blind man, Jesus raising Jarius' daughter from the dead, and Jesus being bound and dragged on His way to Pontius Pilate.

In order to arrive at his conclusion, Stewart has relied on his own advanced imaging technology called Infinite Microscopic to Macroscopic Imaging, a system that has been used and improved upon for the past 25 years. This imaging system has been used by the federal government, select State and county agencies, private museums in the USA and the UK, and other researchers and archeologists over the past several years.

"I am excited by this work. This is exactly the kind of in-depth research of which Christians need to stay apprized. The 3D imaging analysis of early coins with possible pictures of Jesus is very intriguing," says Dr. Tim White-adjunct professor at Northwest University and senior pastor of Washington Cathedral.

Dr. Stewart plans on displaying the coins at some pending exhibits throughout the USA in 2014.
