The Chosen, created by Dallas Jenkins, is a Christian historical drama, presented as a multi-season series, about the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. Different from the many other portrayals of Jesus, we see Him in a more personal and intimate way, presented through the lens of those who followed Him during His ministry and after. The drama is biblically accurate and true to the writings of the four Gospels.

According to Niagra Frontier Publications, as of June, 2023, over 110 million viewers in 175 countries around the world have watched part or all of The Chosen. In July, 2023, the CW (CBS/Warner Broadcasting) premiere broadcast of The Chosen was watched by 520,000 viewers in the US. There are plans to soon make it available in 600 languages.

Even without enrolling in a Bible study based on the series, The Chosen is definitely worth watching!
