The National Police in Italy have reportedly created a digital image of what they believe Jesus Christ looked like as a young child.
Detectives used the Shroud of Turin — a famous relic believed by some to be the burial cloth of Jesus — to generate a photo of Jesus’ face, The Independent reported. The Shroud of Turin has a faint image of a face, which some believe to be Jesus’ face imprinted on the cloth after his crucifixion.
Police then put the generated image through a computer forensics reverse-aging process to see what Jesus may have looked like as a young boy, according to The Independent.
