For the two billion Christians worldwide, Jesus of Nazareth is the son of God - a first century messiah who performed miracles before being crucified to atone for the sins of mankind. However, some claim that Jesus was something else entirely, and have developed conspiracy theories claiming he was anything from a hypocrite to an alien. Who, or what, was Jesus?

Jesus was an extra-terrestrial who visited Earth from another planet.
Conspiracy theorists have claimed that they have found the symbol of the crucifix on the surface of Mars. They believe that the discovery of this symbol helps prove that Christ was an extraterrestrial who sought to teach all intelligent forms of life across the cosmos about ethics and morality.
In addition to what is believed to be the carving of a crucifix, there is also a statue of a lamb next to the crucifix. The addition of the statue of the lamb is considered further evidence that Jesus Christ was an alien and that any aliens that lived on Mars would believe in Christ. This is because it is believed that this cross is supposed to be the lamb of God. Both the lamb and the cross are considered evidence that not only was there once intelligent life on Mars, but that Jesus had dedicated himself to traveling across the cosmos and spreading his message to other intelligent life forms. 
A painting from 1710 also seems to suggest that aliens were present for the baptism of Christ. The painting, titled "Baptism of Christ", depicts John the Baptist baptizing Jesus on the River Jordan. However, the painting also shows something hovering over the pair and shining light down on the baptism. Conspiracy theorists argue that the object, which many believe to be the sun, that is shining light down on the baptism bears a strong resemblance to a UFO. The UFO shape is significant is a strong symbol of the idea that aliens have been visiting Earth for centuries.
