Jacob Simmons and fiancee Gentry Lee Sutherland of Anderson County said they received the receipt when they purchased pictures at Walmart June 12 and Simmons spotted the paper item on the floor of Sutherland's apartment June 15, WYFF-TV, Greenville, S.C., reported Monday.
Simmons said a gray mark had appeared on the receipt in the shape of a face resembling Jesus.
"I was leaving the kitchen and I just looked on the floor, and it was like it was looking at me," Simmons said. "Then the more you look at it, the more it looked like Jesus, and it was just shocking, breathtaking."
Sutherland said she and Simmons believe the image was a response to a question asked by their preacher in church that week.
"We had a message on knowing God, abiding in him," Sutherland said. "(The preacher asked) 'If you know God, would you recognize him if you saw him?'"
"We just feel like it's a blessing that God showed it to us and opened our eyes. And we just feel like we should share the blessing God gave to us to everybody else," Sutherland said.
Simmons said Walmart workers told him the receipt would only change colors if heat was applied, but he does not know how it would have been heated enough to cause the mark.
