Sunderland residents, Ian Ridley and Lawrence Boys had gone out, got a little drunk and decided to stop in Mayho Chinese Takeaway on the way home, to grab something to eat.
But what makes this night completely different to a normal night out on the town is the fact that whilst waking outside the takeaway for their food to be prepared, the men spotted the son of God looking right at them from within the wall of the building.
Ridley, 39, immediately took a photograph of the holy image, he told the Daily Mail:
“It was Jesus looking right at us, we were shocked and couldn’t believe it. ‘It’s a miracle! The best thing about it is the face is actually facing the direction of St Luke’s Church so it looks like it is supposed to be there.”
Ridley showed the photograph to several other people who all managed to spot the uncanny resemblance to Jesus in the peeling paintwork.
This is not the first time the image of a religious icon has popped up in an everyday place, people are constantly finding their deities faces in the strangest of places – in a tomato, an egg yolk, or even a decade old cheese sandwich which allegedly bore the likeness of the Virgin Mary.
Thanks to eBay, people who are lucky enough to come across these holy representations in the commonplace can make a small fortune, the cheese sandwich sold for $28,000!!
