Christmas is a time to celebrate Jesus coming to earth as the only way for us be to saved! One of the best ways to share in the joy of Jesus and what he has done is to watch "The Chosen" with your family and share it with others. I just went to a life-changing, eye-opening Israel trip this summer and this series does a GREAT JOB at bringing Christ's story to life.
"The Chosen" tells the life of Jesus in vivid, vibrant color, not through the lens of Hollywood, but true to the Bible and the Christian faith. The acting and cinematography are so superb I felt transported to the time when Jesus lived. "The Chosen" tells the stories through the eyes of those He touched, the first testimonies to God's glory. Many lives are being transformed around the globe as this series has been downloaded and streamed in over 142 countries this far!
"The Chosen" is directed by Dallas Jenkins and distributed through VidAngel, but it is completely crowdfunded. For those unfamiliar with crowdfunding, it means the production is paid for by viewers and contributors, not large media production companies. In fact, 16,000 investors gave a total of 10 million to make this vision a reality! I know Dallas and he is one talented, hard working man.
Thank you to a Facebook friend for suggesting this binge-worthy show! The first 4 episodes are free!
Check out the official trailer here.
