Africa’s biggest Jesus statue’ unveiled in Nigeria

Nigeria on Friday unveiled a nine-metre tall statue of Jesus Christ carved from white marble, thought to be the biggest of its kind in Africa.

Standing barefoot with arms outstretched, the “Jesus de Greatest” statue weighs in at 40 tonnes.

More than 100 priests and hundreds of Catholic worshippers attended the nine-metre (30-foot) statue’s official unveiling in the village of Abajah in southeastern Nigeria.

It was commissioned by Obinna Onuoha, a local businessman who hired a Chinese company to carve it and placed it in the grounds of a 2000-capacity church that he built in 2012.

In his homily at a Mass before unveiling the statue, presiding bishop Augustine Tochukwu Okwuoma said it would be a “very great symbol of faith” for Catholic worshippers and passers-by alike.

“It will remind them of the importance of Jesus Christ,” said Okwuoma.

The cost of the statue has not been revealed.

Earlier in the week, Onuoha told AFP it would be “the biggest statue of Jesus on the continent.”

The 43-year-old boss of an oil and gas distribution company timed the statue’s unveiling to coincide with his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country with 170 million people, is split between a more prosperous Christian south and a poor Muslim north — an occasional source of tension.

More than 17,000 people have been killed in Islamist group Boko Haram’s six-year quest to create an independent state but the violence has been mainly confined to Nigeria’s Muslim-majority north.

And even as Nigeria rings in 2016, the ever-present threat of violence by Boko Haram hangs heavy over the country, despite official claims that the battle against the Islamist group has been “technically” won.

“We think religions can exist side by side,” Onuoha said. “We hope that people can live in harmony.”

He said the idea of building a giant statue of Jesus came to him in a dream nearly 20 years ago.

And when his 68-year-old mother fell seriously ill a few years ago, she made him promise that he would build a church if she survived. -YAHOO










:wow:
they know where to pull this. IN WEST AFRICA. TAKE ALL KNOWLEDGE AWAY AND WHORSHIP WHITE JESUS WHO ISNT ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE.

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

“I FOUND GOD… WHILE POSING AS JESUS”: MODEL TURNS TO CHRIST AFTER PLAYING HIM IN AFRICA PHOTO SHOOT — THEN FINDS LOVE WITH A MOTHER OF 5

Jesus works in mysterious ways…

‘I found God… while posing as Jesus’: Model

turns to religion after playing Christ in Africa

photo shoot (and finds love with a mother of five

too)

By MARK DUELL

Six years ago this man met a woman in a bookshop – and the encounter ended up changing his life.

As a result in that chance meeting, Phillip Miner, of Provo, Utah, went on to travel to Lusaka, Zambia, to model as Jesus Christ – and during his time out there he found the Saviour himself.

While in Africa he also met Kathy Headlee, a single mother of five from Cedar Hills, Utah. They ended up marrying and merging their families – her five children and his two sons.

Awakening: Phillip Miner, of Provo, Utah, travelled to Lusaka, Zambia, to model as Jesus Christ, and while he was out there he found the Saviour himself

Image
Happy kids: Mr Miner flew out to Africa to an orphanage for children whose parents had died of AIDS


Image
Jumping for joy: The children were overwhelmed and tearful at Mr Miner’s appearance among them
Mr Miner’s story began in a Border’s store in 2005 when he was mistaken as another model used by artist Liz Lemon Swindle, reported the Deseret News.

Before then he had left the Mormon church aged 14, got married, became a father aged 19, had another son and divorced his wife.

Mr Miner had no interest in religion but a lady who worked with Ms Swindle noticed him in the bookshop and said he could be an understudy for a model of Jesus, named Christopher Crofts.

‘I knew this Jesus guy really didn’t mean anything to me, but I got that he was a big deal in a lot of people’s lives,’ he told the Deseret News, so he decided to help out.

Image
Lovely photos: Mr Miner had gone out to Zambia on a photography trip – but he got more than expected


Image
Holding hands: Many of the children photographed had lost their parents to AIDS – or had AIDS themselves


Image
Posing: The idea of the project was for artist Liz Lemon Swindle to capture Mr Miner as if he was Jesus
His big break came when aid organisation Mothers Without Borders asked Ms Swindle if she could create paintings of Jesus interacting with African children – and the charity would take the profits.

‘I told one 12-year-old girl that I was there to remind her that Jesus knows and loves her. She started sobbing, weeping and wailing’

Phillip Miner

So in 2007 they flew out to Africa to an orphanage for children whose parents had died of AIDS. The children were overwhelmed and tearful at Mr Miner’s appearance among them.

‘I told one 12-year-old girl that I was there to remind her that Jesus knows and loves her,’ he told the Deseret News. ‘She started sobbing, weeping and wailing.’

Then one day in Africa he could not get out of bed, feeling flu-like symptoms, dehydrated and emotionally broken. A young volunteer gave him a blessing in an attempt to make him feel better.

Happy couple: During the trip he met Kathy, right, who founded Mothers Without Borders 11 years ago

‘Until then, I was on a paid vacation having some interesting experiences,’ Mr Miner told the Deseret News. ‘Then a stranger laid his hands on my head – it became clear that these weren’t his words.’

‘This Jesus guy is really kind of a big deal to a lot of people. I just happen to be one of those people now’

Phillip Miner

It was then that he decided it was time for the actor Jesus Christ to follow the real Jesus Christ.

In addition, during the trip he met Kathy, who founded Mothers Without Borders 11 years ago. He went back home and broke up with his girlfriend. Two months later they married and merged their families.

‘I go back to where I started,’ Mr Miner told the Deseret News. ‘This Jesus guy is really kind of a big deal to a lot of people. I just happen to be one of those people now.’

giving blunt a lil history lesson

The name of this west African town is historically called Judah. I wonder why

Ouidah/ˈwiːdə/, historically also called Whydah/ˈhwaɪdə/, Juda,[2]Juida by the French[3] and Ajudá by the Portuguese,[4] formally the Kingdom of Whydah

The called it the kingdom of Judah

And it's located in the area called negroland
On today's modern maps the place is called Ouidah, which means Whydah or Judah.


Image
The first slaves were brought to the America's in 1510 - Notice: in the above map, the kingdom of Judah became. or were renamed "Whidah (Judah) Slave Coast
