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. What percentage of dialogue and scenes in the Chosen, all told, would you say correspond to the Bible vs. the percentage that are imagined? I saw the series starts with an invented scene where Mary Magdalene had apparently attacked a man and another where Nicodemus had been stopped by Roman soldiers while travelling. So, before the opening credits, 0% Bible and 100% speculation. I turned it off and won't waste any time with it if this is how the whole series is put together. I think there is a false perception among non-Christians and those without biblical literacy that the series is more than fan fiction.

  2. Total nonsense, what they are making. Twisting the Bible and the scriptures. Learn the Bible as it is, that will provide eternal life. People who are supporting this fare warning, be careful of the people who will demonstrate Godliness but will be just covering and nothing to do with scriptures or the truth in the Bible. Biblical truths are always bitter for the world. Jesus himself said that not all will believe. People who belive in yhe simple Gospel, God is the one who bring people to His Son, not these twisted episodes of Chosen. I love TV serial and Movies, especially all the Biblical movies, Paul, Peter, Jesus etc. Out of all, the Chosen is the utter nonsense ever created, verse than Mel Gibson Moses and the Noah crap movie.

  3. Before the Chosen I never really thought too much about the relationships between the disciples. But they did have disagreements and different temperaments that they had to navigate. It will be interesting to see more of this in season 2

  4. I can’t wait for season two ! God bless you all for making this happen ! Just ordered my Chosen sweat shirt , I can’t wait to wear it proudly ! I’m looking forward to people asking what it means so it presents another chance to share to gospel and also get people to watch the show !

  5. I find, in the relationship of Simon & Matthew, is that they have the same sin that Simon needs to realize. Betraying their people by dealing with the Romans. Simon has digust for Matthew but hasn't realized he has done the same.

  6. I have a question and this is written with gratitude to Dallas and this project. I can’t seem to find that there was real tension between Peter and Matthew in life. I fully fully appreciate the making of side stories to enhance the times and that’s the beauty of the series. But I have to wonder if making disciples what they (possibly) weren’t is a good thing. I just don’t think so. I’m not sure I’d mess with solid biblical characters to add to movie drama. Am I wrong here?
