Art imitating life? Obama regime not happy with portrayal of the Devil on History Channel Bible series.

The actor who plays the devil on the History channel’s “The Bible” bears more than a passing resemblance to President Obama, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed on social media.

So, was it intentional? Responding to the speculation, the History released a statement saying, “History channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. History’s ‘The Bible’ is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”

Editor’s note: A two day Presidential trip to Israel coming up this week, but the picture looks a lot like President Obama will, in about ten years. Still and all …

And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him: That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition Who opposes and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits in the temple of God, showing himself as if he were God.  (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)

History Channel uses 21st century computer technology to reveal the face on the Shroud of Turin

Bob Stanley of “The Catholic Treasure Chest” recommends the History Channel’s special on the Shroud of Turin

The History channel ran a special last night called “Resurrecting Jesus”.

It is about the latest findings of the shroud and I thought, very good.

I say that because the History channel does not have a very good track record when it comes to Christianity. They tend to emphasize the nay-sayers.

This one was a put down to the nay-sayers. They showed a few recent findings that drove nails into the coffin of the flawed carbon dating test. The shroud ended up with being dated centuries before that test result.

It is a 2 hour program with 30 minutes of that being commercials. They will no doubt show it many times, so watch for it. – Submitted by Bob Stanley

The Shroud of Turin bears the full-body, back-and-front image of a crucified man that is said to closely resemble the New Testament description of the passion and death of Christ. The 14-foot cloth long has posed mysteries because of its age and its negative image of a bloodstained and battered man who had been crucified. Believers claim it to be the miraculous image of Jesus, formed as he rose from the dead.

The History Channel will air “The Real Face of Jesus?,” a special two-hour event that premieres March 30 at 9 p.m. EST. It aims to bring the world as close as it has ever come to seeing what Jesus may have actually looked like.

Computer graphics artist Ray Downing of Studio Macbeth used today’s most sophisticated electronic tools and software in a yearlong effort to recreate the face imprint on the Shroud of Turin.

“The presence of 3-D information encoded in a 2-D image is quite unexpected, as well as unique,” Downing said. “It is as if there is an instruction set inside a picture for building a sculpture.”
