'Jesus' Spotted on Montauk Highway

The white-robed man is heading to Montauk.

A spotting of 'Jesus' was all the talk in Westhampton Beach on Tuesday afternoon. Residents were also Facebooking and Tweeting about the sighting of a man dressed in a robe, carrying a cross. 

Some said he saw him sitting on a bench by , others saw him near  and there was reports of him on Montauk Highway in Quogue. 

According to an article published on 27east on Wednesday, the man's name is Robert Wood. He told the publication, that he is from Freeport and is walking to Montauk to draw "attention to Jesus because everyone needs him.”

27east further reported that Wood started his journey to Montauk in April, but has been walking on and off for 22 years.  When he reaches Montauk, he said he plans to head back to Brooklyn.

Have you spotted the man dresses as Jesus? Let us know in the comment section below.

Start reading the Bible Gospels people; Jesus is coming back soon, and we must give an account to His Dad! www.NeedGod.com

I wonder what wil happen when he crosses paths with that uber bigot in front of the 7 -11?

He was almost at Carvel in Bridgehampton, when I returned from Southampton. I thought I was seeing things on my way there. So, today should be our lucky day in East Hampton. Are food and water offerings appropriate???

oh good! Because my foot hurts. Wine and fish and bread. I hear his wife, MM and kids have a place out here for the summer. We could use the divine intervention! Think of the headlines: Hark! The Hamptons are Holy! South of the Highway: JC & MM spotted at Main Beach. MM leads women paddlers on divine feminine retreat. JC chats with commercial fishermen. Catches increase. Regulatons go to he....

I wonder what his birth certificate says? And also wonder if he was born in the U.S.

Spotted in the Hamptons: JC & MM taking care of their culinary needs at Loaves and Fishes...

Somebody find + talk to him! We should LOVE this character - he's bringing attention back to the most important thing - God! The Hamptons are materially rich but so spiritually deprived...In the orthodox church this guy is called a "Fool in Christ"...he pretends to look insane but inside he's ILLUMINED!

No one will believe Jesus when He comes, anyway. This will be the typical reaction, won't it?
Gail Simons May 31, 2012 at 02:33 PM
I love this!!! Jesus walks!!! Yay, Jesus! MM, too? Yay!!! :)

I saw him yesterday just east of Watermill. Hadn't heard anything about him so I was a bit befuddled when I saw him

I just saw a guy with a cross, but no robe, stopped by the cops just east of the Amagansett IGA, lights flashing on the police car!
Jeff Havlik May 31, 2012 at 07:06 PM
I just passed him about 15 minutes ago on the stretch heading east
Gail Simons May 31, 2012 at 07:44 PM

Desiree Garcia May 31, 2012 at 08:57 PM

passed him at the fork of 27 and old mtk hwy just east of cyrils at 415 today.
lola snow June 01, 2012 at 02:13 AM
i saw HIM near the beginning of the stretch.........and then i wondered...........woud we know HIM if we truly saw HIM? i believe that i am deeply blessed to have the good fortune of knowing HIM when i see HIM. our modern souls have been dead a long time, and seeing HIM has lifted my spirits immeasurably.............. the one walking may be just a man, but in my mind i have NO DOUBTS from the origins of this walk..............

Everyone keeps asking: if Jesus comes, will we know? The answer is "yes"" if you believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible; when he comes back he is going to make quite a ruckus, it will be apocalyptic in fact. Fools, posers, freaks. Don't be swayed by them. When Jesus comes it's going to be BIG. Of course, I'm not sure why it is so important since true believers have the afterlife to consider. If you are going to spend an eternity in heaven, what's the rush?

right, so JC walked by the woods, said oh yeah, they need saving. Done. My foot feels better. And the fish I left on the counter somehow became more fish after he left! MM? Cool lady. We talked about the sun and the whole redhaired thing, sunscreen is important. I shared some curly products with her. And their kids? Adorable. And well behaved. Well, they have those awesome grandparents... thanks for the visit!

Yes I have seen him getting off north ferry to greenport
Captain Rob Aaronson June 02, 2012 at 08:54 PM
If he walks off Montauk Point and heads for Block Island I'll be impressed
the baby June 03, 2012 at 02:45 PM
I spotted him a few weeks back on Montauk Hwy. in Massapequa!
jodi June 03, 2012 at 03:26 PM
He was doing " The walk" yesterday on 114 north between East Hampton and Sag Harbor
