Praying for the right words, asking the LORD to go before me, order my steps and speak what only needs to be said.





Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.

Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."


Gabriel tho!

Gabriel can take me up immediately

I’ve been giving a lot of thought about how important representation is - Twitter and Tumblr have taught me a lot, watching how exciting people get over seeing ANY sort of representation for themselves in media.  

Embracing the fact that I want to game a GAME, what’s the point of limiting the main character? What if players can choose between a few different “Charlies”? I won’t have the scope to do different body types, but some different faces and skins doesn’t seem like a crazy order. So I’m experimenting with some different character designs to choose from.

And when I think about seeing an excited post from someone discovering the game and realizing they can be a fluid Indian lady that makes me smile already.

Missing someone that doesn’t miss you is the worst.
You can’t just make yourself not miss someone.
