The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus. Created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen allows us to see Him through the eyes of those who knew Him. No matter where you are in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you.
MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
I’ve been a believer my whole life, I’ve attended Christian schools my whole life, and I’ve heard the stories of Jesus countless times. I’ve also seen every Jesus movie and miniseries ever made, and there have been dozens. So why a new TV show about Jesus?
Because I have a passion for people to hear the “old, old story” again … for the very first time. When I see Jesus movies, it’s sometimes hard for me to feel moved or excited. I've heard the stories before, and many Jesus projects just take you from Bible story to Bible story, not spending as much time on the humanity and backstories of all these characters. And they sometimes feel stiff and formal.
So when we started to write a show that explores Jesus through the eyes of those around Him, we were repeatedly moved and excited. We explored the backstories of Simon Peter, Matthew, Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, and a few of Jesus’ miracle recipients, and in turn experienced Him in the way they did. We couldn’t help but identify with their recklessness, rough pasts, religious piety, and desperation for life change. And ultimately, their redemption.
One of our favorite responses from an early screening? "The story of Jesus that actually appealed to my teenagers!"
No matter where you’re at in your journey with Christ—whether you’re one of the many people in the gospels who encountered Jesus after a horrific past without Him, or you’re a Nicodemus who’s been a lifelong member of the God team—Jesus proved over and over that we have so much to learn and innumerable traits that need change.
We hope this show allows you to see Jesus as they did. The end of the trailer tells you how to watch this show right now.
Ratings and Reviews
Even my 14 yr old son couldn’t stop watching!
I watched the first season marathon style while stuck at home after my son’s surgery. He would wander in the living room and end up staying a while, asking questions, laughing, and (here’s the kicker) not looking at his phone! The last 2 episodes he stayed for the entirety of the episodes. He asked questions that could only be answered by starting over - which we did! This gave us a wonderful opportunity to not just share the gospel story, but explore the humanity of Jesus, discuss the history of the time, and answer all of his questions about the “flash backs” to the Old Testament. My son doesn’t sit through ANY show - even major motion pictures unless we are at a movie theater. The fact that this series had him fully engaged to the point of asking questions and talking about it with me after is HUGE!! I am struck by how any license taken with the backstories or the characters personalities never veered from the biblical script - it just filled in the blank. I was expecting some deviation as we’ve seen so many times in Bible movies and mini series of the past. You only ENHANCED the biblical script and didn’t change it in any way. I am downloading the app to watch season 2. I am 100% behind you and this movement, and I am diligently praying God uses this to mount a spiritual revolution calling people to Christ and deepening the faith of believers everywhere. God bless you and the work of your hands!!
Thank you Jesus
God is using this right now to help free me from 12 years of addiction and anxiety and depression. I used to see the face of my abuser when I tried to pray or read the Bible it made keeping my faith feel impossible, so I gave up I thought God hated me and I went on my prodigal journey. Somehow this portrayal of Jesus resonates so deeply with my heart that the more I watch the show the more the face of this portrayal of Jesus is slowly erasing the face of my abuser I don’t know how to describe this and it must sound absolutely crazy to people. But I’ve been able to start praying again because of it I’m able and hungry to read my Bible each day now because of it. To everyone who has played and is playing a part in creating this show I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you for saying Yes to the Holy Spirit everyday that you’ve written and prepped and worked on this show. Season 2 episode 4 is a lightning rod from the Holy Spirit DIRECTLY to my heart and soul. I watch it any day I feel tempted to go back to the addiction and I’m about to join a a group that I know has had great success with sobriety. This is a review as well as a testimony. To the doubters I say, if you’re here reading this, I believe there’s a purpose, pray and ask Jesus to reveal Himself to you. To the fellow believers please pray for me. I just got the 40 day devotional and I NEED spiritual food to stay in Gods grace. Thank you for your prayers.
Just what we need
This show is absolutely amazing!! The writers, director, cast, crew & spiritual advisers are a gift to all of us. My sister has dyslexia & had a difficult time reading the Bible…I sent her the information on the The Chosen app…because of the wonderful way the show is written, she binge watched & is now understanding the Bible, Jesus & His disciples in a way she didn’t think was possible. I am so grateful, my sister’s husband passed away in 2020 & she is a recovering alcoholic…needless to say she has been walking through a storm for a while….can’t thank all of you enough🙏🏻. I believe the Lord’s hand is definitely involved in The Chosen. He always gives us just what we need & in His timing, which is impeccable. I believe He hand picked all the people involved in this TV series…love, respect & appreciate His diversity🙏🏻. It seems, from interviews I have seen with Dallas Jenkins & cast members, that everyone involved with this TV series is grateful to be a part of it & they work together so well, regardless of where they stand on their spiritual beliefs or lack there of…..I love it! Too bad all people in the world couldn’t do that…how sweet would that be!! I will continue to pray, as are millions of people everywhere, for everyone involved in the series, personally & professionally….may the series go through seven seasons & beyond, according to the Lord’s will🙏🏻. God bless you all 🙏🏻 Many thanks & gratitude 🙏🏻
