The True Portrait of Jesus?
Akiane Kramarik’s painting of Jesus was identified by Colton Burpo, in the book: “Heaven is for Real” as the “true” portrait of Jesus!
Here we have two young children who have never met before, one (Akiane) who paints a portrait of ‘Jesus’ when she was very young, and the other (Colton), who died on the operating table when he was four but is brought back to life and claims to have seen Jesus after dying. Colton’s dad had an idea. He began to show his son 'portraits of Jesus' from his computer, even the most popular ones you would see in church. But every portrait he showed his son, Colton would say, “no, that’s not Jesus.”
After many attempts, one day Colton’s dad learned of Akiane, and her story of how God had showed her visions of heaven and without any training, she was painting portraits of heaven at four years of age. Then one day Akiane painted a portrait of Jesus! The portrait you see above would be the final picture of Jesus Colton’s dad would show him. When Colton saw the portrait, he was stunned…he stood there with his mouth opened… then Colton said, “that’s Jesus!”
