A stunning image of a Christ-like figure was captured appearing through the clouds over a small town in Argentina.
The photo was taken in the city of San Salvador de Jujuy by Monica Aramayo using her smartphone. She then shared the stunning image of a startling white figure with outstretched arms on social media.
The image spread quickly online leaving many people falling to their knees and praising Jesus Christ.
According to the DailyMail, the fervently Catholic South American country’s social media users compared it to the portrayal commonly seen in Renaissance artwork.
Some people pointed out that the image looked like the famous Christ the Redeemer statue found in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The ‘head’ of the Christ-like figure can be clearly seen in the image as well as a cassock which the Jesus Christ was thought to wear appears to flow down to the ground below.
Some people also pointed out that the ‘head’ appeared to be adorned with a crown of thorns associated with the Crucifixion of Jesus.
Social media user Mariela Romano commented, ‘The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready.’
Carlos Daniel Nieva said, ‘Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.’
Of course there were also some skeptics who said there’s nothing more to see other than the sun shining through the clouds. Some critics doubt the photo is real, claiming it was photoshopped.
This isn’t the first time believers have claimed to see images of Christ in unusual places. In March, Alfredo Lo Brutto, took a picture of a glowing image of Jesus above an Italian town as sunlight broke through the clouds. Can you see the resemblance?
