The seamless robe {wiki} that Jesus wore is located in a church in Trier, Germany known as The Dom or The Cathedral of Trier. (photo) It was built by the Roman Emperor Constantine for his mother Helena.

Constantine the Great (Latin: Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus; c. 27 February 272 – 22 May 337), also known as Constantine I or Saint Constantine, was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Well known for being the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, Constantine issued the Edict of Milan in 313, which proclaimed religious tolerance of all religions throughout the empire.

  1. Facts 5-7 need clarification.

    #5 In Jesus's time, family closeness often called first cousins as brothers and sisters.

    #6 Jesus and John were first cousins once removed, as Mary and Elizabeth were first cousins.

    #7 Jesus was NOT baptised until he was grown. On the 8th day, he was "presented" in the temple as all Jewish boys were, and then given the 8 day "snip" as well. Jewish girls were not presented until the 40th day.
