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.

    No words to describe these series especially when you are brought up a Christian your whole life. God bless you guys for making these series because it’s not just for Unbelievers but also for people who have been Christians their whole life. Amazing!! A very different perspective on Jesus unlike previous ones. It provides a great insight about the life during Jesus’ time and also about the Jewish culture.
  • Can’t get over how great this series is!

    We’ve watched 4 episodes so far and love it! First class acting, cinematography, production. Can’t get enough and each episode flies by. I’ve been recommending The Chosen to all of my Christian friends.

    I have been a very dry place spiritually . Hard to pray . Because of circumstances beyond my control I am now as St John of the Cross says “a dark night of the soul .” This scene in which Nicodemus opens his heart and soul and recognizes Jesus as the Messiah brought me to tears. It also brought me to remember why we all have Crosses. To be with Him we pick up our cross and go to Him. Thank you for The Chosen.

    I really like the fact that the actors don’t speak with an English accent. Enjoyed the series a lot, a whole lot. Very Biblical and what creative liberties that were used didn’t detract from the most important part......the message. Thanks for your efforts.
  • A profoundly remarkable fresh take.

    Took a while to be encouraged to start watching... but once I started, by episode 5 I just wish the episodes never had to end. Tremendously encouraging, absorbing, and engaging. Love the refreshing reminder of The Faith.
  • Excellent and Beautiful

    This show is one of the most incredible things that I have ever seen. I cried and laughed during every episode. I had heard many friends talk about “The Chosen” over the past couple months and all of them recommended it. I assumed it might be cheesy, poorly acted, or poorly made. I’ve seen plenty of Christian films with great messages but below average acting or production, so I put this show on the shelf for another time. After a videographer friend, a high creative and trusted voice, spoke highly of the show, I checked it out. And fell in love This show is full of excitement, beauty, wonder, and intrigue. There was never a dull moment while I was watching it and it brought familiar stories to life. I am immensely grateful for this show and will be putting my money where my mouth is to help fund more seasons to come. To those reading: Please check out this app. It’s worth it. To the creators: I’m humbled and inspired. Thank you
