An Anderson County, South Carolina couple reports that they have seen the face of Jesus Christ... on their Wal-Mart receipt.
Jacob Simmons and Gentry Lee Sutherland claim that the image, which was not there when they got the receipt, appeared three days later.
The couple had some photos developed at their local Wal-Mart branch and left the receipt on their kitchen table. Southerland and Simmons attended a Wednesday night Bible study session and returned home to find an image that looked like Jesus on the receipt.
Right before they were about to start a movie, Sutherland noticed Simmons standing beside the counter.
I said, 'What's wrong with you,' Sutherland recalled. He said, 'Look at this receipt.' I just looked at it and it looked kind of brown, and he said, 'No, Look at it.' So I took a second look and then I saw the face. The message we had just heard at church an hour before went through my mind.
The couple said the image seemed to answer a question they had just been asked at College Park Worship Center that night about intimacy with God.
The ink-blotted bushy-bearded image with two alleged eyes, they felt, looked like a divine face.
The more you look at it, the more it looked like Jesus, Sutherland told NBC. It was just shocking, breathtaking.
Sutherland, 21, who attends North Greenville University and is engaged to Simmons, says that she was initially scared of the image.
I always wondered why in the Bible when someone saw an angel they were afraid, but now I know, she explained. We're human beings and we're not used to seeing that kind of thing.
People are going to believe what they want to believe, Sutherland told NY Daily News. There (are) tons of people who will say, 'Oh, we're in the Bible Belt,' but here's my question to the doubters, who else has the power to put their face on a check-out receipt but Jesus?
