The Jesus Christ Show is a radio program that airs every Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Pacific Time, on the Premiere Radio Network, with flagship station being KFI, AM-640, Los Angeles, California. The show is billed as "Hosted by Jesus Christ."

Jesus is played by the show's producer, Neil Saavedra (who wears many hats at KFI, including hosting a food show on Saturday afternoons as well as wrangling advertising accounts for the station throughout the week), who refers to himself on-air as "your holy host." He does not believe that he is actually Jesus Christ.[1] The show describes itself as "...interactive radio theater designed to teach people about themselves and the historical person of Jesus."[2]

The show became a part of Premiere Radio Networks on June 1, 2008, and is syndicated to several stations in the U.S., including WOR (New York City), WFLA (Tampa), KOGO (San Diego), and America's Talk (XM Satellite Radio).

The Jesus Christ Show began as a short segment on KFI's The Bill Handel Show, when Saavedra was invited to play the role of Jesus as a serious guest for an Easter program segment.[3]
