Because painted on the walls of the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Georgia is an image of Christ that has sent conspiracy theorists into a frenzy.
The fresco painting shows Christ being crucified with a large crowd gathering around him, but in the top left and right corners are what appear to be flying crafts or some form of advanced technology which humans clearly would have not have had 2000 years ago.
The ships are dome like, with three trails coming out of each which look like a propellant of some kind.
Art historians who have studied the 11th century painting claim that the strange crafts actually represent guardian angels, but during the Byzantine period, which was present in south east Europe and south west Asia up until the 1450s, angels were depicted as human-like with wings.
Conspiracy theorist website Ancient Aliens said: “The unknown artist seems to be telling us that these flying saucers were present during the death of Jesus.
“The faces likely mean these crafts were piloted by people, or beings, that seem to play a central role in the event.
“They must have been part of the crucifixion story, at least as it was taught by the Georgian Orthodox church.
“Were early artists and the Orthodox Church aware of certain facts about ancient aliens that have been veiled from us today?”
Throughout history, Jesus Christ and Christianity have been linked to alien activity.
Two separate texts from Egypt, now being held in the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City and the other at the Museum of the University of Pennsylvania, which have recently been deciphered in the past few years and suggest that Jesus was an alien shape-shifter.
The text describes Judas’ betrayal of Christ: “Then the Jews said to Judas: ‘How shall we arrest him (Jesus)? For he does not have a single shape but his appearance changes. Sometimes he is ruddy, sometimes he is white, sometimes he is red, sometimes he is wheat colored, sometimes he is pallid like ascetics, sometimes he is a youth, sometimes an old man’.”
Another reading, written in the Coptic language – a form of Egyptian – describes how Pontius Pilate had dinner with Jesus the night before his crucifixion.
The Roman, who is considered a Saint in Captic churches which would explain the favorable view of him, then tells Jesus: “Well then, behold, the night has come, rise and withdraw, and when the morning comes and they accuse me because of you, I shall give them the only son I have so that they can kill him in your place.”
To which Jesus responds: “Oh Pilate, you have been deemed worthy of a great grace because you have shown a good disposition to me.”
Jesus then supposedly showed Pilate that he can escape if he chose to by shape-shifting.
The text reads: “Pilate, then, looked at Jesus and, behold, he became incorporeal: He did not see him for a long time.”
