Jesus flies today. I got ta see this, tweeted Teigen. The special also features rocker Alice Cooper as King Herod, Ben Daniels as Pontius Pilate and Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene. Cooperrecently spoke about his inspirationfor playing Herod, which he first played in a 1996 London production of the play. He revealed that his inspiration for the role comes from Alan Rickman's portrayal of Professor Snape in Harry Potter.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Nothing should bother you in life not even adversity nor poverty. For, nothing lasts forever. Yes of course, every matter or issue of life has a limit or breaking point including adversity and poverty. Are you undergoing adversity presently or are you currently experiencing poverty? If Yes, then listen up, it's just for a little while. That is to say, you will sooner or later outlive it or rather you will overcome it eventually. I mean, you won't remain poor forever or rather you won't keep on undergoing adversity or poverty forever. Furthermore, nothing should make you to become orgulous, proud, haughty, disdainful or arrogant in life. Not even your own child or children, nor your certificates, nor your qualifications, nor your political status, nor your social status, nor your job, nor your money, nor your properties, nor your knowledge, nor your wisdom, nor your insights, nor your power, nor your riches, nor stuffs like that. Because, you cannot and you will not live forever. Oh! Yes, you heard me right as usual, you will definitely leave everything you've acquired behind someday. Apart from that, God resists the proud or the arrogant (James 4:6). But guess what? He (God) gives more grace to the humble. Besides, whenever you are proud of whatever you have, you are unknowingly disregarding God and taking his grace upon your life for granted. In other words, whoever that is proud of anything he or she has acquired at any given period of time has failed to acknowledge almighty God as the giver of whatever he or she claims to possess. And God is never happy with such person(s). Thus, desist from pride and arrogance. For, you should not be condescending at all. -Emeasoba George

  5. Samin Sedghi Zadeh:
