On of my favorite search terms is ‘photos of the Apostle Paul’. Kodak is old, but not that old. Now we have more pictures of other Apostles. Yes, there were more than just Peter and Paul.
Archaeologists exploring a Christian catacomb under a residential Roman street have unearthed the earliest known images of the apostles Andrew and John.

“John’s young face is familiar, but this is the most youthful portrayal of Andrew ever seen, very different from the old man with grey hair and wrinkles we know from medieval painting,” said project leader Barbara Mazzei.
