About The Author

The Chosen WHY A TV SERIES ABOUT JESUS? We've been making movies for some of the biggest studios in Hollywood for 20 years. But a subject this important shouldn't be entrusted to Hollywood. It needs to be made by us. Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I am doing a new thing..." The Chosen is a new thing. * How it was financed is new: We're the #1 highest crowd-funded media project of all time -- over $10 million from over 19,000 people. * The content is new: We're the first-ever multi-season show about the life of Christ. * The way to watch it is new: We're the first show to have our own app that connects directly to your streaming devices. No subscription needed. Just search "The Chosen" where you get apps and download to your phone. * How it's reaching the world is new: The show is free, but by "paying it forward," you help ensure people around the world can see it -- we're currently in every country. Welcome to a new thing!

  1. Chosen: suggestion.
    Bring a shepherd in. Perhaps a fleeting visit of an old man passing through with a memory of a baby in a manager. Jesus gives him a matching piece of swaddling or some sage advice. Just Jesus and the man; wandering the roads looking for work. Maybe he finds him in a sad place, an inn, doubting what he saw, what he knows. Or his life hasn't panned out well, and he needs some encouragement. Or he introduces others in the process, and Jesus preaches to them. It's a scene that can go in a dozen different directions and stay biblical to the core. Luke tells us of some courageous women who supported Jesus' ministry behind the scenes. Their story has never been told. One of them lived in Herod's household. Perhaps he goes on a mission to get money from Jerusalem or takes some to someone in need, or brings news to and from places. Or simply follows where they go, at a distance, wondering. I can write that scene, no problem. After all, I am a writer.

  2. Can someone help with something ?

    I've been getting dragged by atheists and what not on reddit about this verse
    John 9:2–3

    2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

    3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

    and basically people.point to this and say
    "see! Only a selfish God would make a man blind only to cure him! It's utter arrogance" and what not. I'm trying to out into words thats not what God would do…? Get me? Please advise.

  3. Dallas thank you so much. Keep up the Good/God Work it is so very important. Every time I watch any of the videos it literally brings tears to my eyes because of the importance of what you are doing. Thank You. and God Bless you and everyone involved.

  4. Oh my goodness! I am so thankful that the Holy Spirit has imparted this on you. There is a great responsibility to be had with this sort of mission and you appear to be following His direction well. It’s so nice to witness the sweetness that everyone seems to have with each other. It’s so nice to see. I bring you all before God in my prayers regularly. Have a beautiful day, week, month, year, life…

  7. I have no social media pages at this time, and I feel strange posting this, but not the kind of strange that is because there is something wrong, but rather the kind that we feel when Jesus calls us to do something that we don't understand why he speaks to us the way that we do.

    I had to pause this video when tears came after Jonathan-who Jesus works SO beautifully through in his depiction of the person of Jesus that has touched so many-said the words "When you were in your lowest moment, and you were alone, I did not turn my face from you. I saw you."
    In the month that you were filming this in 2020, I was experiencing my hardest year, as many were. I had lost my grandmother and aunt a month from one another from March to April, and my job had changed but I was still there daily as we are a non-profit supporting men who have been diagnosed with mental illness and I was managing under our director, who is my dad. We lost some funding but no spirit and our guys were so resilient. I had a sister struggling as well and was distant from her, though she had moved closer to me.
    At the end of October, when it felt like things were just too heavy and I knew God could see me but I could not feel Him and needed Him to move in my family, I got news of my little sister's suicide on October 29th 2020. We were irrevocably broken of the people we once were.
    I am one who can understand the hearts around me, but sleep to my own and buried it. It surfaced broken and uncertain, something it always had been…but this time the brokenness was more shattering. I did not understand the word lament truly until that night. Tears could hardly come, but I spent my evening laying there feeling the tension of what I knew was a broken heart while my dad and brother cried and wailed and questioned and screamed into the night and my mother silently cried or sat numbly in her room and I just didn't know how this could happen.
    Alongside it all I was working a difficult job but God carried me and presented the opportunity for a new job, a needed respite and departure from working so closely with family in a difficult field at the worst time of my life and my family. I found a position in other supportive housing where I was introduced to this show. The first episode offered insight to the world that I know my own sister battled in the story of Lillith, who was Mary, who wanted to end it all but saved by Jesus. Questions arose that I had already asked: why didn't you stop her, why didn't you remind her who you were, why is she gone?
    But I don't get to know those things. I have laid awake too many nights to count after the loss of friends and family, and even loss of the living as they are new people after such a loss, but God has given us Himself through His son.
    I recently met a friend who has eyes that Jonathan's are identical to. God had given me a vision of adoption, and these eyes flashed in that vision months prior to my sister's death. When I saw them, I said to myself and out loud "It's as if these are eyes that see me. I just need to be seen and known."
    My community has shrunk significantly and often I have no one next to me and certainly no one who can see me in these moments. My entire life changed from where I live, who is in my family, the world at large, my job, and again my job will be changing as of this week. Wanting to wake up and do it all can be hard any day for any person no matter their circumstance. But when God is leading us in a way unknown in the midst of grief and loss, it can be easy to want to give it all up.
    My prayer and relationship with Jesus has been closer, daily, and my notice of the life giving and sustaining person of Jesus I have through the spirit has been more acute, but so has the recognition that even this is separation and loss, because I can't look into his eyes in my greatest moments of need, or hold a hand, or speak to him in person.
    I also have a hard time allowing myself to cry when needed, even when I am alone and feel the tightness in my chest and the physical desire to just hug someone. But when I see even just a moment of filming, or watch the cast engage with one another, or watch an episode, I am reminded that Jesus was a person who lives in all who invite him.
    I am so thankful to God for all who have seen the need in this world to remember that God is God with us. That He sent a perfect son who came to live as we did in a broken world but without blemish. That Jesus still works now to help us to know him and remember that he still sees us as if he were right there. That he sees me in my lowest moments, when I am alone.
    And he does the same for all that I encounter. Thank you for reminding the world of the humanity of Jesus, the humanity of the disciples and the reality and depth of the sin that Jesus saw through.
    Thank you for reminding the world that Mary was a broken and tormented woman who wanted to throw it away but that Jesus saw who she was and loved her and knew her in her lowest moment and that it is possible to find reason to live, even amidst the torment and torture of demons.
    We are never too unclean to be loved and seen by Jesus.
    I have never met any of you, but your willingness to do this project has changed my moments, and those feel like days sometimes.
    My story is unraveling and I have never felt stronger or weaker than I have in the days since my greatest lost to date, and it is Christ who is next to me and providing these moments, but it is you, the willing vessels, who have allowed such beauty in the midst of strife to be highlighted and lifted to the surface.
    I read at some point that crying is actually a gift. It allows us a release of the intensity of emotion and experience that our flesh cannot hold in. Thank you for bringing words-which I do love dearly as I am an avid reader who has a better relationship with books than people it seems some days-to life, and in a way that reading and my own mind could not bring to life alone, and that life to the words gives me the outlet to cry when I have struggled so to find the strength to.
    Your show is so dear to me, and so needed for a world that needs their lord and savior to be next to them in their darkest hour and be seen.

  8. You are so amazing! Thank you for presenting all the struggles and sadness and joy, and so much more we have in life. You do a wonderful and amazing job—each one of you. I deeply, deeply appreciate what you do. So uplifting. Thank you very much!♥️I am always told that I am wordy. Might me. That's me. And yes, I am worthy. No, you are right. I have been taught to keep sentences short. Small, but a big mouth. What do I have to do now? Alpha or Beta? I could delete all and then we start anew. I know. This is the lovestory. There is always a and, because it never ends. And that's what we love so much. We have so much to love and laugh. I know. And I cannot stop talking, when you are around. But I will, I try. Because I love you. I do listen, even when I talk. I do, believe me. Well, a little bit. I am the opposite of perfect and that's why I need Jesus, the Messiah and that's why I need you and my family. I love you guys. And this time you have to believe me. And yes, your shirts will come. I just never know, where I have to press those buttons. Let's pray that life becomes easier. I mean it takes me hours to press somewhere and then to know how to get out of it again. But because I know that you take care of me, it makes fun. Even if it seems that I lose. I do not. You are at my side. If you are for me, who can be against me. And this to know and to understand is like walking on clouds, eating stars and drink from the waterfall of the moon. And eat crackers or more so nuts from the sun. And this is FUN. SUN / SON / FUN or NOS NUS NUF. I lvoe you all. And yes, the word is correct, because you can find out the truth as in moving around letters. I could delete now, to talk less, but this time I leave it. That's why you are always better off with an editor. I have the best. And him I love with all my heart.

  9. God's favor be upon you in a thousand generation. Your family, your children & their children's children & the rest of the team. we love watching the life of Jesus over & over again. thank you. stay safe & healthy. with love from Philippines ❤️

  10. When Philip was first introduced I thought he was Jesus because he has the same hair length hehe .. Anyway, Philip is one of my favorite characters, I just binge watched Season 1 and 2 ,and I saw how he is portrayed as the peacekeeper and more of an experienced and matured disciple. God bless all the cast and crew ,may God's anointing be ever manifested in your lives and in the show. I pray that I could also contribute financially for future episodes. Shalom!
