Man Spots Jesus, Lamb—on Apple

First Jesus was spotted on Google Earth. Now he's apparently taken to fruit. Albuquerque's David Duran was making apple butter in his mother's kitchen when he came to "the last couple of apples in the batch." He was just about to peel one when he saw a divine image—in Duran's view, Jesus in a robe, holding a baby lamb—in its red and yellow markings, reports the Christian Post. Sure of what he saw, Duran took the Fuji apple to a local church where a priest blessed and anointed it. Neighbors are now flocking to see the fruit that nearly became a sweet spread.

"This is the first time I’ve ever seen this on a piece of fruit or any type of vegetable," Duran said. "There’s like the face and then his robe around here and then right in the middle you can see like a figure of a lamb." So what does the apparent image mean? "Maybe it's a sign from the Lord that maybe we need to change our ways and maybe look at things to be more positive in this world," Duran told KOB4. "Like helping our fellow neighbors and being good to people." He's now looking into how to preserve the divine fruit. As for scientists, they say seeing Jesus in inanimate objects is perfectly normal. In fact, we're hardwired to do it. (More Jesus Christ stories.)
