Modern-day messiahs! Meet people who claim to be Jesus and even have disciples

In 2014, a photographer named Jonas Bendiksen embarked on a project chronicling people who claimed to be the Biblical Messiah.

They all have followers and even disciples of their own. They believe that they are the chosen ones sent to save the world. See their photos below.
