I’ve been telling just about everyone about the new series called The Chosen. It’s the first ever multi-season series following the lives of Christ and the apostles.
So far, I really love how they’ve fleshed out each of the characters while remaining true to the original Gospel accounts. Plus for once, Jesus doesn’t have blond hair and blue eyes.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I do think some of the best standout portrayals of characters have been of Mary Magdelene and Nicodemus. But to see the Gospel stories come alive is worth seeing.
I usually cringe at the acting in a lot of Christian movies. It’s normally not the best. But this series has some of the highest production values and quality acting that I’ve seen from a faith-based production in a long time (and maybe ever).
Here’s the link if you want to check it out for yourselves.
