We’re looking for someone to play an authentic Jesus for our “Wounded for our Transgressions” music video. Christafari is searching for someone that could pass for a 30 something male that is ethnic looking (or mixed race) with olive or darker complexion. Ideally, someone with brown skin that is not too handsome. We want to be authentic to the Scriptures, especially Isaiah 53. Let’s do away with the incorrect European Jesus stereotypes that we’ve seen over the centuries. This person should be able to pass for Middle Eastern or north African. They should have some acting experience and be willing to safely reenact the crucifixion. Must be willing to grow a beard for the next two months and non allergic to latex for prosthetics.
30 to 33 years old, African, Black/African American, Mediterranean, Mixed Ethnicity male. Please do not submit if you’ve been told you “look like Jesus” w/the Caucasian, Anglo-style Jesus. (non White) Israeli, Middle Eastern “authentic” looking preferred.
