The Chosen’s Jonathan Roumie tells March for Life participants “God is real”

Roumie at March for Life

The popular actor challenged young people to "vote with all their resources" and to change the culture by impacting it.

Jonathan Roumie who plays Jesus in the popular crowd-funded series The Chosen spoke at this year’s March for Life rally on Friday, July 20 in Washington, DC.

His speech was a testimony of his Christian faith and a call — especially to the Gen Z and Gen Alpha generations at the march — to turn their backs on the evil and destructive aspects of the culture and use their gifts to make an impact for love and for life.

“True love gives way to life, not death,” he said.

The actor, who said it was his first time at the March for Life, said he decided a few years ago to start following “prompts of the Holy Spirit” – which is one reason he was at the March this year. He began his speech by reminding everyone listening how much they are deeply loved by God.
