Warrior King Jesus on a White Stallion

Field review by the editors.

Owatonna, Minnesota

"The Coming King" isn't as large as some other roadside Saviors, but what it lacks in scale it makes up for in testosterone. It depicts a battle-ready warrior Jesus, with bulging muscles and a sword raised for slashing. He sits bareback on a rearing white stallion, balanced on a boiling gray cloud, crimson cape flapping in the breeze, with a ram's horn to sound the attack and a royal crown atop his disproportionately large head. It's supposedly based on a couple of Bible verses (Revelation 19:11-12).

Jesus has come back from heaven -- to raise hell.

The statue stands 18 feet tall outside of a megachurch that was formerly an aviation museum. In fact, Jesus's current spot was previously occupied by a sculpture of three backflipping fighter jets.

Snarky locals have christened the Christ "Hi-Ho Jesus" and "Burger King Jesus."
