When a man spotted an ‘image of Jesus’ appearing in the sky, he knew he had to share it with the world.
The amazing scenery was captured by Alfredo Lo Brutto when the sunbeam gave an impression of an image of Jesus Christ bursting from the murky clouds.
The majestic pictures were taken by Alfredo in Agropoli, close to Pompeii in the southern part of the country, on last Friday.
Since then, several people on social media have been claiming that it really was a sign from above.
On the other hand, there are also a large number of skeptics who are resorting to science so as to give probable reasons behind the unusual phenomenon.
Whether or not it was a divine sign – the sight is, without any doubt, extremely spectacular and clearly resembles the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Alfredo, who was amazed by the beauty of the scene, knew he had to share the moment with everyone.
“I was enchanted by the view,” he said.
“I don’t often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see it, because it was so beautiful.”
However, this is not the first time someone has spotted Jesus in everyday objects, or people.
For instance, several people said Superbad actor Jonah Hill was an image of Jesus earlier this year when the actor acquired a new look.
Owing to his long, blond hair and beard, some social media users even went as far as to claim that he’s the exact look-alike of Jesus.
One social media user commented: “O my god it’s jesus.”
Another wrote: “Jesus vibes. I dig it.”
Someone else said: “You look Like Jesus… Hi my friend.”
One person asked: “Jesus, is that you?”
However, some people disagreed and provided their own suggestions about who the actor resembled.
Their suggestions ranged from ‘a BTEC Alan from The Hangover’ to Gregg Allman, to Jax from Sons Of Anarchy, to ‘Thor’s other brother’.
