Description

See the record-shattering series about Jesus that has a 9.9 on IMDb. 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.

    I love the app and the stories but I can barely watch an episode without constant buffering to the point that they just completely stop and won’t load.

    The first episode I was trying to figure out, “What is this?” But it wasn’t long before I could see the gospel coming to life and the words I’ve read so many times in the New Testament were coming alive in me. I could see myself as someone Jesus met and loved and forgave. I seriously bawled happy tears by the end of each episode because my spirit was so encouraged. Especially right now, when so much uncertainty and pain is plaguing us around the world, Jesus’s words are good news and bring great joy.

    Absolutely the best! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched season 1. The quality of the cinematography, sets and writing would never let you think it was made with the purpose of being free to viewers. I love how the characters are portrayed as Real, not some old stuffy grumps who were all business and never allowed to smile. It doesn’t replace scripture, it just adds another layer to consider when reading the bible. If you haven’t watched it, you don’t know what you’re missing!

    This has been the best version of the parables and stories in the Bible put into film or action if you will. I’ve been very happy with every episode and I cannot wait for season 2! From the jump this whole project has been unique and turning. Please continue to support and share this content. Bless all!
  • Great Series over the Gospels!
