Alexamenos graffito

Check out this piece of 2nd century "graffiti", an image of Jesus crucified ... but with the head of a donkey! Crucifixion was designed to completely humiliate and destroy a person and their reputation. So, this "cartoon" is a joke on Christian faith, bearing the words, "Alexamenos worships his god". (This particular story was also told this past Sunday in the message.)
