Diver Sees a Mysterious Statue of Jesus Underwater. When He Takes a Photo, I Gasped.

A mysterious statue of Jesus Christ sits on the bottom of the ocean floor, but it’s not the only one. In 2009, an underwater photographer named Steven Weir headed to the Coral Reef State Park in the Florida Keys.
As he floated above the statue, Steven snapped an incredible photo of the statue. Though he doesn’t consider himself a religious man, the experience was one he’ll never forget. “For me, when I first saw Jesus, it was inspirational,” he says. “In the case of Christ of the Abyss, I think we all think of him as blessing the fish and protecting the reefs.” What a beautiful thought, to think this stunning statue is there watching over the underwater world.
