This Man Dressed Like Jesus Is Travelling The World And Spreading The Gospel!

James Joseph might not have a single penny to his name but he has a true heart and passion for the gospel. He has travelled to 47 states and 20 countries to share the good news of Christ! Yes, he looks a bit like the common depiction of Jesus, but he wants to make it clear that his mission is simply to be like him and spread his message of hope and forgiveness. 

“I want to make it very clear that I don’t think I am Jesus and I don’t try to portray Jesus, but I live a lifestyle like he lived," Joseph said according to WREG. "I meet so many different people in different circumstances so I am able to share with people that are in need, people that are curious, people that are hurting, people that are looking for inspiration.”

One passerby, Susan Yoder, felt compelled to stop and talk to Joseph. “I take it as a divine intervention. I always, I am a firm believe in signs and James walking down to street that day was a sign to me maybe I needed to slow down," she said. 

She says her perspective on life completely changed after meeting him.

“I don’t know if we will every get to our friend’s simpleness, but we’re really tried to cut back a couple of the things, ya know do we really need that.”

Joseph might have very little by today's Western standards, but he knows who holds his future!

“Just living totally for Him and that gives me a freedom. I don’t have to worry about so many things that practically everybody else does. Just focus on his will.”
