Man claims to be Jesus
Alan John Miller.

A man in Australia claims he is Jesus and his partner is Mary Magdalene.

The pair, Alan John Miller and Mary Luck who live in rural Queensland, have a growing band of followers for their religious movement known as the Divine Truth.

The former IT specialist, who prefers to be known as AJ, runs what is seen by many as cult from his home near the small town of Kingaroy in the state of Queensland.

Cult experts say they fear for people who are buying property there, simply to be near the couple.

Luli Faver is British and she has given up her career as a neuroscientist to become a follower.
