Take a look at the famous Jesus tree of Lebanon, and find out what’s the true story behind those viral photos!
Is The Famous Jesus Tree Of Lebanon A Real Miracle?
Pictures of the famous Jesus Tree – a tree that looks like Jesus crucified on a cross – are often shared on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, emails and elsewhere online.
These pictures are often accompanied by prayers and claims that it’s a true Christian miracle.
It really looks like Jesus crucified on a cross, doesn’t it? It would be quite a miracle if a tree actually twisted itself to look like that.
Or is it just pareidolia – the perception of a familiar pattern or image, where none actually exists?
The Famous Jesus Tree Of Lebanon Really Exists!
For Christians who need vindication for their faith, we have good news and bad news.
The good news is the Jesus Tree exists. The bad news is it is neither natural, nor supernatural. It is certainly not miraculous.
The Jesus Tree is the artistic creation of Lebanese poet, painter and sculptor Rudy Rahmè, who carved it out of a dead cedar tree in the forest of the Cedars of God (Al Arz el Rab) in Northern Lebanon.
Here is the original picture taken by louppe1 in June 2007.
On the 24 July 2015, when a James Morales took this picture below, and made it viral on Facebook by calling it evidence of “the power of God’s goodness…” :
The truth and the far more mundane fact is that it took Rudy Rahmè 5-6 years to carve that sculpture. Here is a closer look at the sculpture.
Rudy Rahmè did not just create that famous Jesus Tree. He also carved Jesus’ image into other cedar trees in the Cedars of God.
The Jesus Tree Was Created By Man, Not God
Instead of misleading other people into thinking that the Jesus Tree is a supernatural or miraculous creation, we should give the artist Rudy Rahmè props for turning these dead cedars into such incredible works of art.
He is the true miracle behind the Jesus trees of Lebanon!
