When Jared Leto hit the red carpet at this year’s Oscars, people couldn’t help but notice that his long, luxurious locks were on fleek. Alas: "This is the last night you'll see me with long hair," he told ET. "This is my going away party for my hair."
Also, that he bared more than a passing resemblance to Jesus Christ.

Jared Leto is basically just Jesus through an Instagram filter.— JamieDMJ (@JamieDMJ) February 23, 2015
It was so obvious:
Maybe it’s the hair? Or the beard? Or the general chill, Jesus-y vibes? Or that we heard he turned his water into wine when Neil Patrick Harris started doing that Octavia Spencer-guarding-his-Oscar-predictions bit for the fourth time?
Jared Leto always looks like someone just threw a prom tux on Jesus and handed him some cue cards.— Max Sparber (@maxsparber) February 23, 2015

Anyway, if you were paying very, very close attention during the show, you may have seen Jesus Leto materialize onstage during Patricia Arquette’s rousing call to arms*.
(*Acceptance speech, but like, an awesome acceptance speech.)
He even anointed prophet Patty Arquette in front of her peers:
Blessed Jared materialized again on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair party, behind one of the producers of Birdman (no wonder they beat Boyhood! They had divine intervention!)
For as they say: When there were two sets of footsteps in the sand, it was because Jesus Leto was photobombing you in a silly photo. He did the same with Anne Hathaway last year:
Got that Jesus photobomb. Surely they are believers now.
In the name of the Father, the Jared Leto, and the Holy Spirit, amen.
