BRADENTON, Fla. - Faith can be found in all sorts of places -- even on a case of Corona beer, according to one man from Bradenton. That's where he says he discovered an image of Jesus....but that's not all.

We've heard these stories before; pictures of Jesus appearing on fruit, potato chips, and in one case -- even a sting ray. But this seems to be a new one.

It was an out of the ordinary discovery during an ordinary walk, says Bradenton resident Fred Truluck. “I was on my way back from walking my dog, and looked to my right. There on the ground was a fish.”

Actually, it was a section of a Corona beer case, in the shape of a fish.

Truluck, a devout Christian, took the case home because of the religious symbolism of the fish. That doesn't even compare to what he discovered next. “I had it on the table, turned it over to the back, for some reason, and I said, ‘Wow! There is Jesus!’”

The inch-long white marking shows what Truluck says is a profile picture of Jesus. “It's right there; a kindergartner could see it.”

We wanted to see what Joe Davis sees. He's an assistant pastor at the Church of the Palms in Sarasota. “I don't think God goes and draws his face on a carton of beer.”

Davis is happy the image provides Truluck with feelings of faith and hope, but believes and preaches that God is found elsewhere. “If you are one of us that believes in the God of the Bible, the scripture teaches more is that God would rather show his image through the works and love of his people than interact in the world.”

As for Truluck, he thinks the world of his new find. “Excited as I could ever be.” He says he plans to frame the case and keep it in his home. He hopes to one day hand it over to his children.

    It looks nothing like historical Jesus would have looked like. Do you know how dumb that sounds? Wouldn't you have to have SEEN this Jesus to even make that comment?

    What is always funny about idiots like you, is that you talk of something NOT reported that you somehow knew about? Why would you know? Oh wait, BECAUSE IT WAS REPORTED ON!!!!

    Ever notice how Osama Bin Laden and what is reported to be the face of Jesus look alike?

    I'm not sure how one can tell the difference.

    Sorry, this is not news. 600,000 people marching in Washington last week, protesting abortion, was news. But it was not reported, anywhere. Back to the funny stains on beer cartons.

    How is this news? Some drunken idiot sees a blurry image of "Jesus" (which looks nothing like what the historical Jesus would have looked like, were he to have actually existed), and this is a front page story? Hey, I got one for you. I saw a picture of the Cosmic Background Radiation on a piece of toast this morning. For F's sake, quit giving these lunatics the time of day, much less the front page.
