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.

Yes yes yes!!!
I’ve seen this multiple times over and I’ve been an advocate for it for months and months. It feels like pulling teeth to get people to watch it... but once they do! Support this project. Help others see Jesus through the eyes of those that followed Him. It’s not dry material, it’s incredibly deep and the character development is miraculous but not unbelievable. Director and creator Dallas Jenkins and team have done an incredible job at showing how God truly makes us new as He comes to us and as we get to know who He is. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve been convicted, I’ve fallen in love, I’ve suffered, I’ve questioned, and through each episode, Jesus shines as an equalizer that turns everything for the good of those who love Him and are called (“Chosen”) for his purpose.
As an app, this is definitely unique. Since when do you find yourself not having to pay a subscription, wait through advertisements, create an account that requires your firstborn, or jump through a variety of multiple hoops? It gets cumbersome for people that haven’t seen it to convince them to download it. People act like it’s such a hassle. But it’s one not a single person I have convinced has regretted. And in all reality, it’s not any harder than downloading redundant apps like “Google.” Not to dog Alphabet/Google or anything...
“I have called you by name, you are mine”
Can’t believe I just found out about this show today. I’ve already watched episodes 1-7 and about to watch episode 8. Hey go hard or go home. & we aren’t supposed to leave home right now 😂.. but I can’t express how much this show moved me in just one day. The healing of Mary Magdalene was so moving. I was raised in church. I know all the stories. But to see some of them acted out through the eyes of someone like Mary ... really puts it in perspective. Possessed to the point she was declared unable to be saved by man. & they are calling her Lilith. When Jesus said “Mary” for the first time I was shook. Then he healed her. 😭😭 I’ve been praying for a long time that God would help me learn to understand the love of him and Jesus because I am very physical. I can’t see him. I know he’s there. But how can I love something I can’t see? Watching these stories depicted on screen by the INCREDIBLE acting crew, shows how loving and giving Jesus really is. & that all God wants us to do is follow him. I can’t wait to see more!!!!! I wish there were ten seasons to binge 😭 I cry every episode. What a perfect time for this show to start really surfacing too.. these are trying times. The world needs the healer.
A New and Refreshing, Relatable, and Rewatchable Form of Christian Media
The Chosen takes a fresh look at the stories of Jesus Christ found in the Gospels of the Bible, mostly through the eyes of His followers: real human beings with real human, relatable problems, whose lives changed forever through their encounter with the man called Jesus of Nazareth. What separates this show from previous adaptations of Bible stories is an intentional focus on the humanity of Jesus that allows Him to relate with imperfect people, while still maintaining the “character” of Jesus as the Son of God.
The app allows users to watch this unique show directly without needing a subscription to some streaming service, and has the capabilities of casting the episodes from the app to a TV. Given the nature of the uniqueness and newness of this app, some bugs have occasionally occurred. However, the developers have a direct help section of the app and have responded (and fixed) issues previously experienced. The overall experience with this app is fantastic and highly inspirational that breaks down barriers and allows people from various backgrounds and faiths (or even lack thereof) to have an enjoyable, potentially life changing experience.
