‘Homeless Jesus’ proves his point in Bay Village, when call to police goes viral: Leila Atassi – cleveland.com

The statue, indeed, is jarring. The life-sized resin figure appears shrouded in a blanket and asleep on a park bench near St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Bay Village. His bare feet are exposed, and they bear wounds consistent with a crucifixion. A nearby plaque explains that what you’re looking at is “Homeless Jesus,” and the chosen scripture underscores the statue’s purpose – to provoke consideration for “the least of these brothers and sisters of mine.”
