The Messiah's face has certainly been on a far-reaching tour, having appeared on naan bread in Surrey, on the window of a Tennesse man's pick-up and on the arm of a US woman, in the guise of a bruise.
We're always kept guessing as to where he'll pop up next, which as it turns out is in Rhondda, Wales, in the Allen household. On a Marmite lid.
It's not quite as clear-cut as other sightings, though. Perhaps the face of Jesus is losing its touch.
But the Allens are convinced that they've seen something heavenly.
It was Claire Allen who first noticed it, as she spread the spicy paste on her son's toast, and husband Gareth was left gobsmacked.
"The kids are still eating it, but we kept the lid," he said.
"Claire saw it first and called her dad to come and take a photo of it.
"When I first looked at it I wasn't sure, but when I moved it away from me it started coming out. I thought yeah, she's right - that's the image of Jesus."
Claire was as equally convinced and explained how her sons were left in awe by the holiness of what they saw: "Straight away Jamie said 'that looks like God', and my other boys (Robbie, four, and Tomas, 11) even said they could see a face," she told the South Wales Echo.
"People might think I'm nuts, but I like to think it's Jesus looking out for us.
"We've had a tough couple of months; my mum's been really ill and it's comforting to think that if he is there, he's watching over us."
My mom loves the stuff.
No way dude! It's Morrison from his bloated, drunk era.
That’s my pat answer nowadays. Whenever I see a “Jesus aparition I say it looks more like Jerry Garcia. It is A) funny and B) since there are no photos or paintings of Jesus you cannot argue it.
All those “face of Jesus” things are really “something that looks like a guy in a beard”.
I sometimes drop by these type stories just to remind everyone that NOBODY knows what Jesus looked like.
jesus looks like what? wheres his photo?
On the internet, right next to the place where you left your capitalization skills.
It looks more like Karl Marx.
Henry the VIII?
Jesus’s picture is on the billboard for J.C.Superstar don’t cha know
Does it really matter what he looked like anyway?
Yup that's him alright
Oh, good!! Now we can see what Jesus looked like.
That’s not Jesus; that’s Frank Zappa.
His appearance does not matter to me, but the fact that people keep seeing Him in Vegemite seems degrading and irreverent.
Charlie Daniels. No, wait. It’s Opie from Sons of Anarchy.
