X-Ray Jesus

Well, it’s been a whole week since the last holy folk sighting, so we were due for another one, and Jesus has shown up just in time—inside the body of a Pittsburgh woman.

A 34-year-old woman in Pittsburgh, Pa., claims the image of Jesus appeared to her in a recent magnetic resonance imaging scan of her body, according to a Local 6 News report. Rhonda Hodge of Duquesne had several X-rays taken of her spine because of a bulged disc, which has been causing numbness in her neck and left arm. One of the images caught her attention and that of her friends and co-workers. "What went through my mind?" Hodge said. "Just surprise. Oh my God, that's the crucifixion." Hodge said there is no doubt in her mind that the image looks like the crucifixion.

I had some x-rays taken of my lower spine before surgery for a herniated disk a few years ago, and I didn’t see Jesus, although Mr. Shakes did note with delight, “Look, you can see your coont!” And indeed you could.
