An Update On 'Sheet Metal Jesus'

Just a quick update... You've only got one day left if you're going to get in on this Jesus sighting!

The interesting thing to me is that Jesus has gone down in value since we last checked in on Him. He was valued at $2000 last week. He will go home with you today for just over $1000. No way! What a bargain!

The bid history is interesting. It seems many people have bid higher amounts for the Man 'O Steel but they've either rescinded their bids or had their bids cancelled by the seller. Imagine that, the seller feels some of those bids are not serious!

I could preach on this: Jesus declining in value in the hearts of people; People making impressive overtures toward Jesus and then rescinding them; Pharisee types telling people their overtures toward God are not good enough... A sermon series in the making?

I'm not so sure I see Jesus in the sheet metal. I think it looks like me - growing forehead, mustache and goatee with no connectors, hand on my chin in that classic 'thinking man' pose. That line across my forehead is just a little metal fatigue...


  • It could be a very interesting piece of art inthe right contxt. There's a term in the art world known as found objects. Artists have made many found objects famous, from paperclips to porcelain toilets (I'm not kidding). Howver, this does not at all look like Jesus. I can imagine faces in just about any textural surface. This one looks more like average joe, or even perhaps as Shari said, Satan. I have yet to figure out why people think any semblance of a face in an object is Christ. I'd be a little more wary.
