Jesus is played by the show's producer, Neil Saavedra, who wears many hats at KFI, including hosting "The Fork Report," a Saturday afternoon food show, as well as selling advertising for the station. Saavedra refers to himself on-air as "your holy host." He does not believe that he is actually Jesus Christ.[2] The show describes itself as "...interactive radio theater designed to teach people about themselves and the historical person of Jesus."[3] The premise is presented on the air as "What if you could talk to Him, laugh with Him, learn from Him?"

The show became a part of Premiere Networks on June 1, 2008, and is syndicated to radio stations in the U.S., including WGST in Atlanta, KOGO in San Diego, KSTE in Sacramento and WRNO-FM in New Orleans.

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.[4]
