JESUS IS (fill in the blank) …


For decades, travelers along eastbound Hwy. 64 near Rangely have seen “Jesus is comming” (sic) scrawled in white paint high up on the rock face south of the highway. According to longtime resident Kelvin White, the lettering didn’t get much attention until the last few years with the advent of social media. Sometime in the last two months, the word “comming” has been removed. According to local history buffs, the apparent misspelling is not an error, but an archaic spelling of the word “coming” taken from 1600s Bible translations. It’s unclear who removed the word (or how) or if there are plans to repaint, revise or replace it. If anyone knows, give the HT a call at 970-878-4017.
