ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Several people in Rowan County claim there is an image in an old oak tree similar to Jesus Christ.

Some say that's what they see when they look at the knot hole in a tree across the street from Ebeneezer Lutheran Church.

The tree is in the yard of the parsonage at the corner of Old Concord Road and Old Beatty Ford Road.

From a distance of a few feet, some are seeing what looks like the image of a bearded man similar to many paintings of Christ.
