Despite the rain this "man" was completely dry.

Points to consider:

How could anyone think that this had anything to do with UFOs or UFO occupants is beyond me. This is obviously a story about someone who thought he met "Jesus".

It the story is true, the "JEsus" here could have been a man with psychiatric problems posing as "Jesus", But of course, all this may have been totally invented, no sign of credibility of the story being apparent.

Evaluation:

Madman or invention, not UFO-related.
