Jonathan Roumie – Jesus

Jonathan Roumie stars as Jesus in "The Chosen." In this first-ever multi-season show about the life and ministry of Christ, Roumie has consistently shared scripture and gratitude for the chance to be a part of it.

"Epic cinema in the making. Beyond words. Two of the most challenging, yet exciting and deeply satisfying weeks of my career coming to a quiet conclusion. The Greatest True Story Ever Told continues its narrative," he posted to Instagram over the weekend.

He included this pivotal Bible verse:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
