Like Jesus, an anti-Trump billboard depicting the Republican candidate and the son of God on display outside an Auckland church has been resurrected.

The billboard depicting the Republican frontrunner for US president - or a cartoon of his likeness - was originally erected outside The Community of Saint Luke church in Remuera last month, where he criticises a crucified Jesus for being a "loser".

But the day before Good Friday it was stolen.

The controversial billboard, much like the man depicted upon it, has been resurrected however, and now is back outside the Auckland church.

It will remain up as long as the issue of Mr Trump's candidacy remains undecided.

It's not the first time the man behind the billboard, minister Glynn Cardy has used shocking billboards to get across a message.

When he was at Auckland's St Matthew-in-the-City Church, he unveiled a risque billboard of Jesus' mother looking dejected after unsatisfying sex with Joseph in 2009.

And again in 2011, the progressive church opted to depict a contemplative Virgin Mary holding a positive pregnancy test.
