Jesus (or a lobster) in a tree
Here's another "Jesus Image in a Tree" for my collection. This one was found by Pennsylvania resident Craig O'Connor. reports:
By counting the tree rings, O'Connor believes the tree was at least 40-50 years old. As a furniture maker of 25 years, O'Connor has worked with wood and seen plenty of different stains and marks. He says this one is radically different from all the others. O'Connor is a Catholic and believes it's a sign from God. When asked what the message is, he replied that it's like Jesus saying, "Believe in me. I'm still here.  Have faith in me."

This image is a lot easier to see than many of the Jesus-in-a-tree images. But it looks like Jesus has lobster claws.

hey, that was the name of my garage band back in High School... "Lobster Tree Jesus"... not really, but cool name, tho. Beats "Rudy Baker and The Vegetables", or "The Pread Desidents", "Gordy and The Curbfeelers", or my least personal favorite: "The". Too pretentious, right? Oh, yeah, that tree is proof of God's will that we cut down all the trees to see the prize inside. Christ.

Jesus also looks like he's having a little boogie. Maybe it's a sign that Jesus wants us to get down and get funky?

Who's to say Jesus DIDN'T have lobster claws. I mean, changing water into wine is one thing, but when you see a guy with freakin' lobster claws doing it, you're impressed.

And yes, he appears to be throwing some powerful funky moves there. Lobster claws and boogie legs. The ultimate divine combination.

Really just looks like a big arrow...maybe someone should follow it to see where it takes them? LOL

Yeah, I was about to say it just looks like an arrow, but TVLover beat me to it.

To me it looks like one of those silhouette figures from the iPod ads.

Anyone want to Photoshop an iPod onto "Jesus?"

Pfft. You're all wrong: The image is Cher back in the Sonny Bono days.
