A 24-year-old woman from Maryland claims the Savior has appeared on the Nintendo set she bought on eBay.
Brittany Wampler spotted the image of Jesus Christ on top of one of the two newly purchased Nintendo sets she received from an eBbay seller, she told Kotaku, an online publication covering the gaming industry.
"We were inspecting it for cracks/damage and when we turned it just right into the light, the image showed up," she told Kotaku. "Our reaction was mainly curiousity [sic] at first. Then as we looked at it closer and ruled out what it couldn't be, we began to get excited about it."
The image, which Wampler sent to Kotaku at their request, appears to show a blurred human face with long hair and a short beard.
Wampler reportedly dismissed the possibility that the image had to do with a form of supernatural intervention. However, she specified that the design was a part of the plastic covering, not residue. She also assured the publication that she did not create the image, or Photoshop the photo. She said she wasn’t sure about the exact origin of the image.
"I was raised religious, but I haven't made up my mind really," she told Kotaku.
When pressured to answer if she believed that the image might be a form of Jesus’ apparition, she reportedly said that she believes the possibility.
Instances when an image of a divine figure seems to appear somewhere in everyday life tend to evoke a lot of excitement - both among believers and non-believers.
Such cases of "apparitions" touching the mundane life of mortals happen surprisingly often.
CP reported earlier this months that a French photographer caught an image of a “divine figure” with a halo on his camera when he was climbing in the mountains. In this case, the photographer admitted that, despite the unique, divine feel of the event, he believes the phenomenon could probably be explained scientifically.
In July, a couple from South Carolina reported seeing the face of Jesus Christ on a Walmart receipt.
