Chosen a multi-season show which examines the life of Christ in a way few movies and television shows have done, began streaming its first season around March/April. It is being produced and directed by Dallas Jenkins.
The Chosen spotlights the lives of men and women who knew Christ directly. The first four episodes focuses on Matthew, Peter and Mary Magdalene.
Speaking to Crosswalk.com Jenkins says of himself and crew that “We have the time to really make these characters into human beings and spend time with them.”
According to Jenkins, the series, was created to help viewers love the Bible more. “This show was designed to enhance our love for Scripture, to draw us more to Scripture, and to bring to life some of the stories that we’ve heard many times,” he told Crosswalk.
The show which was crowd-funded by 15,000 investors who raised more than $10 million for the show to be created is binge worthy. It includes scenes and dialogue directly from Scripture as well as dialogues based on artistic liscense. The characters are all relatable and leaves you longing for more.
The show which is now on the App store has drawn so many positive reviews. Below is one from Katharine Menning who among many viewers have rated the show 5 stars:
“There is a lot (and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT) I could say about this show. But for the sake of your attention span, I will try to keep this short and to the point.
THIS SHOW IS AMAZING!!! I don’t think I could come up with one negative thing to say about it. The acting, casting, writing, sets, costumes, directing, cinematography, just everything about this show is so good and amazing. It has made me laugh out loud and weep. I have watched all 8 episodes of season one multiple times and will continue to do so for a long time. When watching this show, one cannot help but acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s presence in this project and that God is moving and working through it. This show is what thousands, dare I say millions, of Christians have been longing and hungering for.
Personally, this show has shown me Jesus in a different and beautiful way and has deepened my relationship and love for him. I can’t wait for season two and the many other seasons to come! Please go download the app and support this project. You will not be disappointed! Blessings!
