9 Strange Jesus Sightings

God reveals him(her)self to people in mysterious ways–a feeling in church, a message in meditation, beauty in the way a leaf falls from a tree. But for these people, the revelation hasn’t been quote so subtle. In celebration of Christian holidays and all things Jesus, here are some of the more inventive ways JC has been making his presence known.

MRI Jesus
A Pennsylvania woman spotted Jesus in an MRI. Jesus is within, and everything, but I’m not so sure I’d want Jesus this within. Looks ouchie.

Marmite Jesus
Some people might suggest that if there were really were a God, there wouldn’t be such a thing as Marmite. But nonetheless…Claire Allen, 36, of the UK said she was the first to notice the image on the underside of the lid as she was putting the yeast spread on her son’s toast. “People might think I’m nuts, but I like to think it’s Jesus looking out for us…”

Cheetos Jesus
A Missouri woman says she has found Jesus in a bag of Cheetos. When Kelly Ramey opened a bag of Cheetos, she noticed a mini orange sculpture that resembled Jesus. She calls it…’Cheesus.’

Hard Candy Jesus
Considering all of the candy associated with Christian holidays, what better place for Jesus to appear than…in a piece of candy? James Burrows, 63, claims to have found an image of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus in this confection while shopping for candy at a grocery store in Toledo.

Funyuns Baby Jesus
This Madonna and child comes in a unique combination of great taste, great crunch and good fun. The  owner of this savory scenario, law clerk, Jim Mize, auctioned the duo on eBay, which sold for $609.

Naan Jesus
An ethnic-food twist on the popular Jesus-on-Toast phenomenon, 34-year-old British plumber David Howlett found Jesus on his naan bread at the India Dining restaurant in England.

Iron Jesus
An iron, which a newspaper pointed out was ”otherwise unremarkable: manufactured for the Wal-Mart house brand, with a basic dial for fabric settings and a steam/dry switch,” garnered a lot of attention for the Boston woman who discovered the scorched image of JC.

Pancake Jesus
Marilyn Smith, from Port St. Lucie, found Jesus in her pancake. Along with toast, pancakes are a popular vehicle in which Jesus often manifests himself. The holy hotcake sold on eBay for $338.

Grilled Cheese Virgin
And what would Jesus be without the Virgin Mary? Perhaps the grandmommy of all religious sightings: the sacred grilled cheese Virgin Mary. Discovered in 1994 in Florida, Diane Duyser saw the image just as she was about to bite Mary’s head off. Duyser claims that she did nothing to preserve the sandwich, yet it remained fresh and decay-free for a decade. (Just like a Happy Meal!) In 2004, she placed the griddled Mary on eBay where it sold for…$28,000. By the time the sandwich auction closed, the sale had received over 1.7 million hits on the auction site.

Sorry but these 9 photoes just show that 9 people want Jesus and Mary to be real so badly that their imagination helps them find stuff like this. Unbelieveable! And the nutcases who pay so much to own them is mind boggling. Surely these are brainwashed people who listen to religious garbage 24/7. Wake up people, Jesus is a myth and the bible is no more then a means of controlling people that the church came up with.

Several were a real stretch; funny that they brought in so much money! Artistically, I think I like the iron the best. As for sin? I dunno. Jesus is the love of my life and I just found this article entertaining.

I think if Jesus made his face to be shown to someone on their breakfast toast, then it would be sinful to make money from selling it. What do you think?

Really?? Food was being sold with "jesus" or "mary/jesus"? People are seeing what they wish to see. I think the only thing that looked like jesus was the xray. Rest I didn't think were clear.
