1.I would definitely recommend The Chosen. To me, it’s strongest feature is how it succeeds in bringing the well known people in the New Testament to life. The Bible’s description can be on the fact, flat side, not multi-dimensional; we have to guess at background stories and personality traits of, for example, the disciples or Mary Magdalene.

2.Beautiful. All of it, beautiful. The casting, script, costumes, props, locations, cinematography. This show made me fall in love with Jesus again, and feel in my Spirit His abundant love. I enjoy the depth it provides to all the characters.

3.I very much enjoy the touching moments that make you laugh or cry! Dallas Jenkins and team, you are doing a wonderful job.

4.An amazing depiction of people I’ve read about so many times in the Bible. The character development brings the disciples alive, each having such diverse personalities and life experiences, which makes them relatable all these centuries later.

5.Each actor brings a richness to their role and character. Well done! I love that this is not Hollywood but has been in collaboration with a Christian Rabbi and other Christian denominations to align Jewish tradition with biblical history and teachings.
