The Jesus Guy on TV

Last week, What's Your Name (The Jesus Guy) was on the Award-Winning Sam Lesante Show. The show is the #1 talk show in all of Northeastern Pennsylvania. What's Your Name discussed what he has been doing in the past two years since he was in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. He talks about his trip to Rome and the time he spent in the holy land during holy week. What's Your Name continues to evangelize but mainly in Tampa, Florida due to some health problems that are restricting him from walking as much as he used to. He hopes that his words can be spread through the help of Sean Tracey's film, The Jesus Guy.

What's Your Name also discusses with Sam Lesante why he decided to make a movie and how it came about. Sean Tracey read about What's Your Name in Time Magazine and thought he would be an interesting subject to make a documentary about. An interview was arranged in Pennsylvania and together they decided to make a film. Together they filmed for 7 years and recorded over ninety hours of footage to create the documentary you can see today. What's Your Name is very happy with the outcome because of its authenticity and rawness. He fells that Sean made a film that captures special moments between people and their reactions. The whole episode of the show can be seen at

TJG Featured in the Examiner

The Jesus Guy was recently featured in a November 22nd article on The Examiner, a local online source for news and events. The article revealed that “The Jesus Guy” has been spotted in downtown Tampa, FL.

“If you see a man in Tampa with long hair, a beard, and a white robe, don’t be alarmed. You are not experiencing hallucinations or a religious vision.”

Jeffery Ramon, the author of the article, had a chance to sit down and talk with James about his journey. James has been in Tampa for about a year now with no immediate plans to travel elsewhere.

James Journeys to Israel

On Tuesday, March 30th we got an unexpected call from James Joseph (the Jesus Guy): he is in Israel for Holy Week! A friend of his who works for Delta Airlines invited him to go for free, and while he is wearing "ordinary" clothes at the airport and major checkpoints, James says his normal robe attire is creating quite a shock.
On Monday he arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel and he is currently in Ramallah, a city that serves as the capital of the Palestinian National Authority. He tells us that this is where many Christians live, and it is extremely fascinating for him to interact with the Palestinians.
We all look forward to hearing more about TJG's adventure overseas!

Tampa Sighting

Comment posted 1/11/10 on The Jesus Guy's YouTube Trailer page:

"I talked to this guy on Saturday. Currently he is in Tampa, Florida. He is not a bum or crazy in the head, he doesn't call himself "Jesus". He calls himself James and he is actually like a priest in the words that he says to people. He is a nice person and has no anger in him at all. His clothes are pure white, his teeth are clean, and he looks like he takes a shower every day, which ultimately means that he is not a bum. His clothes are to symbolize that he is a preacher and a follower of God. What I am trying to say is to not discriminate against him."
