The man who has gone viral for playing the role of jesus in Kenya is Michael Job, an Evangelist/President at Jesus Loves You Evangelistic Ministries in the US.
The BBC reports that he lives in Orlando, Florida, where he has been playing Jesus at The Holy Land Experience theme park, which describes itself as “a living, biblical museum”.
From a video he uploaded to his Facebook page over the weekend, he said…
“Tonight’s last night of the Kiserian crusade was awesome! God’s Spirit came upon all of us. People surrendered their lives to Jesus, many people were healed, and God’s Spirit came upon us powerfully in worship. Thank you Jesus for drawing all people to yourself. Lord, abundantly bless all of the 30 churches which combined to see a mighty harvest in Kiserian Kenya. Over 300 souls were saved in Kiserian. Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus for your amazing grace! “Go and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Tweeters have generally been making fun of the photos and how pastors in Africa like to claim miracles.
One that has been shared on some blogs alleges that “a Kenyan pastor claims he has found Jesus Christ walking on the streets of Kenya”.
