Earliest reference describes Christ as 'magician' - Discovery.com- msnbc.com


Earliest reference describes Christ as 'magician' - Discovery.com- msnbc.com

A bowl, dating to between the late 2nd century B.C. and the early 1st century A.D., is engraved with what may be the world's first known reference to Christ. The engraving reads, "DIA CHRSTOU O GOISTAIS," which has been interpreted to mean either, "by Christ the magician" or, "the magician by Christ."

(Thanks to LucidusV for the Palm Tree Garden for pointing this out.)
