Pita bread Jesus for sale on TradeMe

JESUS, OR HALF OF AUSTRALIA: This piece of pita bread with an image of Jesus Christ is up for auction on TradeMe.

A Hamiltonian is selling a piece of pita bread that they say looks like Jesus Christ.

The TradeMe auction shows a photo of the pita bread, which broke into pieces after being put in the oven. One piece, the seller says, resembled the face of Jesus.

"I was tempted to eat it but for some reason I didn't," the seller says in their auction listing.

"I guess what you all want to know is whether it's a coincidence or real apparition. I'm not really sure."

The pita bread piece has no reserve price. The auction ends January 8.

A stone with an image resembling the Virgin Mary was put up for auction on TradeMe last year.
