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 bad App reviews LOVE this show!
I’ve loved this show from the very beginning and every “extra.” The interpretation of Jesus is how I’ve always felt him in my heart and mind’s eye. Many of the poor App ratings are because they can’t get the new shows fast enough or with captions for the deaf. Since they release each show as soon as it is produced (and Season 2 was just completed) while more languages are being translated all the time, with captioning being planned but not available yet, I see this as a huge recommendation for the show and more like it! As far as “Pay it Forward” goes, Dallas makes it clear the decision to make the show FREE was to make it available to as many people as possible without regard to income. Since it costs a lot of money to produce a quality show (more now thanks to Covid), those who want to and can afford to donate are the ones who manage this show financially available to everyone. (Thank you!) Since I am disabled and financially unable to contribute financially, I rely on them as well. Even so, sharing the show with others IS something I can do! *I have found it takes an average of three “prompts” after TELLING someone about the show before they have actually WATCHED the show, so a sincere, “What do you think about The Chosen?!” or, “Which character on The Chosen do you identify with most?” can be a great reminder in their busy lives. Once they watch it, YOU won’t be telling THEM about it because it will be the other way around.
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!!
I love this show so much. It’s changed my life. My relationship with God has become so strong. Now, I continually want to please him. He is my Light and my Salvation. Thank you to Dallas Jenkins for listening to the call and following the leading of the Holy Spirit in this project. It has brought so many of us closer to our God, and renewed our focus on the Almighty. Reading my Bible is more enjoyable now, and I can understand things in a way I didn’t before. This show is great at bringing out the humanity and struggles of the disciples, as well as that of Yeshua/Jesus… being that He was God, but in a very human body. Everyone is so relatable and I see my own life in some of the stories, like Mary of Magdala, Nathanial, and even Nicodemus in some ways. There isn’t an episode that doesn’t choke me up, and it’s the same no matter how many times I watch. I’ve watched this series about 6 or 7 times now, and I will continue to watch when I need to put my focus back on God and less on the problems of life. What I love most about this show is that it’s the most Messianic version of Jesus that there has ever been. Jesus was a Jew and so many forget that, especially those that have made Jesus films in the past. This is the most middle eastern depiction of Jesus and His disciples that had ever been made. I appreciate how much time and effort that Dallas and His crew put in to get this all right. Thank you all again for your work. It’s been amazing!!!
