The Chosen Season 3 Episodes List
The Chosen Season 3 Episode 1 “Homecoming” Recap
In The Chosen Season 3 Episode 1, we witness a deeply emotional moment in AD 24 as Alphaeus, with a heavy heart, disowns his own son Matthew, a publicanus. Fast forward to AD 26, we find ourselves captivated by the continued delivery of Jesus’ profound Sermon on the Mount. That begins right after season 2 finale left off.
Amidst the teachings, a bittersweet farewell unfolds between Jesus and his disciple Judas Iscariot, but little did Judas know that his destiny would soon be intertwined with Jesus once again.
A much-needed respite beckons for Jesus and his devoted followers, and it is during this period that Joanna, a courageous woman from Herod’s palace, emerges as a beacon of hope. Joanna, moved by the plight of the imprisoned John the Baptizer, ventures alongside Andrew to visit him, forging connections that span prison walls.
As the impact of Jesus’ words resonates with hearts near and far, a diligent soul named Yussif undertakes a profound task, meticulously documenting the remarkable deeds and teachings of Jesus, penning a heartfelt letter for Nicodemus. This sacred missive finds its way into the hands of Jairus, the newly appointed synagogue administrator in Capernaum.
Meanwhile, amidst soul-searching conversations with John the Baptizer, Andrew experiences a profound shift, redirecting his focus to the profound wisdom of Jesus. Judas Iscariot bids adieu to his people, reconciles with his beloved sister, and embarks on an inspiring journey.
Amidst these transformative moments, Andrew, humbled by past missteps, seeks solace in apologizing to Mary Magdalene, while Matthew, overcoming a tumultuous past, finds solace and reconciliation within the comforting embrace of his parents, particularly with his father Alphaeus.
This remarkable chapter in the chosen narrative reminds us of the timeless power of forgiveness, redemption, and the awe-inspiring journey of discipleship, forever touching our hearts and weaving connections to our own lives.
This also answers to our question why Matthew’s father disowned him. It was because Matthew was supporting the tax collectors and helping enemies to slay his own people. He was building huge wealth for himself without caring for his people.
That’s why people despised him and his father decided to disown him because Matthew has bring shame to the family.
The Chosen Season 3 Episode 2 “Two by Two” Recap
Pilgrims from far and wide converge on Capernaum, causing the city lines to be redrawn and catching the attention of Atticus Aemilius and Gaius, who report back to Quintus. Meanwhile, Simon Z., a disciple of Jesus, encounters Atticus Aemilius and is asked a crucial question about Jesus.
This encounter leads to an offer of alliance to put an end to the Zealots. Inside Simon’s house, Jesus commissions his twelve chosen apostles, granting them authority to heal the sick, cast out demons, and proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of Heaven to the lost sheep of Israel. However, tensions arise as Jesus pairs up the apostles for their mission.
Amidst this, Little James expresses his longing for healing, and Jesus comforts him through his inspiring words and assure him that healing will come in due time. Outside Matthew’s former home, the apostles join together in reciting a Psalm of David, underscoring the unity and divine purpose that binds them.
This episode of The Chosen Season 3 introduces us to the incredible mission of Jesus to make the earth a better place to live. Even though, all episodes depict something, this one reminds us the power of faith, healing, and unity in our own journeys.
The Chosen Season 3 Episode 3 “Physician, Heal Yourself” Recap
In episode 3 of the Season 3, Jesus returns to his hometown of Nazareth to celebrate Rosh Hashanah with mother Mary and shares his stories like a good child about his disciples. The scene is so heartwarming that I watched that on repeat.
Shortly after, his childhood friends Lazarus, Mary, and Martha join them from Bethany. At the synagogue, Jesus reads from the prophet Isaiah and declares that the prophecy is fulfilled on that very day. He uses examples from the stories of Elijah and Elisha to support his proclamation of salvation in the Year of Jubilee.
Jesus then proclaims himself as the long-awaited Messiah, which both enrages and upsets the people around him but disciples rejoice. The community of Nazareth rejects and condemns Jesus, attempting to drive him out of the town and even throw him down a cliff. So sad, my heart aches on this scene.
However, in a miraculous moment, Jesus passes through their midst unharmed. Later, he visits his earthly father Joseph’s tomb, reflecting on the legacy and wisdom Joseph passed down to him. This powerful episode of The Chosen Season 3 showcases Jesus’ unwavering faith, love, and purpose, despite facing rejection and persecution from those he came to save.

Amidst their endeavors, Yussif faces immense pressure from Rome to repair a broken cistern that has contaminated the local water supply, causing suffering among the people. Jairus, inspired by Yussif’s sealed account of Jesus, confesses his belief in the Savior. The disciples reunite, struggling to comprehend the profound experiences they’ve had.
Eden seeks to reconnect with Simon but faces resistance, leading her to meet Veronica, a woman tormented by an ailment for twelve years. Meanwhile, Jairus’s daughter falls ill due to the polluted water, prompting Jairus to question Yussif about Jesus’s power to heal. In the midst of these events, Shammai proposes a decree against false prophecy, gaining council approval.
Simon, recognizing tension with Eden, becomes disheartened by the use of his home as a meeting place but finds solace in a conversation with Gaius at the synagogue and agrees to assist in fixing the broken cistern.
As the The Chosen Season 3 episode 4 concludes, Jairus’s wife urgently calls for her husband, indicating a critical situation. Through this touching narrative, we witness the challenges faced by the faithful and the profound impact of Jesus’s miracles on their lives.

However, tragedy strikes as the young girl passes away before Jesus reaches her side.
However, Jesus resurrects her, demonstrating the limitless power of his divine love. A remarkable encounter takes place as Veronica, seeking solace and healing, reaches out to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, and her faith is rewarded with immediate restoration. Jesus humbly acknowledges her faith as the source of her healing. Alongside these extraordinary events, we bear witness to the ongoing struggles faced by the disciples.
Zebedee, one of the chosen twelve, makes a significant sacrifice by selling his fishing boat to purchase an orchard, a testament to the profound commitment of these men to follow Jesus. However, a cloud of disquietude lingers as Judas, entrusted with ministry finances, makes a questionable purchase.
Despite the hardships and challenges faced by the disciples, we find solace in the bond between Peter and Gaius, who work together to repair a cistern. Through this episode, Dallas wants to remind us that the power of faith, the depth of Jesus’ compassion, and the extraordinary miracles that continue to shape our lives today.
The Chosen Season 3 Episode 6 “Intensity in Tent City” Recap

Despite recognizing its effectiveness in collecting money, Pilate longs to find a way to bring harmony between the Romans and the Jews.
Meanwhile, Simon Z faces the disapproval of the zealots for proclaiming Jesus as the Messiah while the Romans still hold power. However, their doubt is transformed into awe and belief when they witness the miracles performed by Jesus, realizing that Simon Z has remained faithful all along.
The disciples of John the Baptizer approach Jesus, seeking confirmation of his identity as the true Messiah. Instead of directly answering, Jesus instructs them to report back to John what they have personally seen and experienced. Later, Jesus compassionately heals the blindness of Shula and the leg of Barnaby, demonstrating his divine power and love.

However, after witnessing Jesus perform miracles, the zealots begin to understand Simon Z’s faith. Two disciples of John the Baptizer approach Jesus, seeking confirmation of his true identity as the Messiah.
Jesus responds by encouraging them to report to John what they have witnessed. Jesus then performs extraordinary healings, restoring Shula’s sight and Barnaby’s leg. Leander, who witnessed Andrew and Phillip’s preaching in the Decapolis, comes to Capernaum, sharing news of unrest caused by their message and urging them to return and restore peace.

In the end, Eden confides in Simon about her tragic miscarriage, leaving him devastated by the loss of a pregnancy he didn’t even know about.
This episode depicts the complexities of faith and the power of miracles that impact the disciples of Jesus and those who followed him on the journey.

The Chosen Season 3 Episode 8 “Sustenance” Recap
In this powerful episode of The Chosen Season 3, Jesus finds himself in a challenging situation as various groups clash in Decapolis. However, Jesus rises above the chaos and performs a miraculous healing, capturing the attention of the multitude. Through his compassionate teachings, Jesus brings solace and hope to the people, even continuing late into the night.
The next day, he performs another awe-inspiring miracle by feeding the entire multitude with just a few loaves and fishes, demonstrating his boundless love and provision. Amidst these events, Eden opens up to Salome and Mary about her painful miscarriage, and they seek comfort and guidance from the wise Yussif.
In the middle of all this, Shmuel and his companions from Jerusalem arrive, determined to gather evidence against Jesus. Meanwhile, Simon secures a boat for their journey back to Capernaum, but Jesus asks him and the others to depart ahead while he seeks solitude. It is during this time that Shmuel encounters Jesus face to face, and Jesus extends an invitation to pray together.
However, later that night, the Twelve disciples find themselves caught in a fierce storm at sea, fearing for their lives. In a breathtaking moment, Jesus emerges through the storm to their rescue. At first, the disciples mistake him for a ghost, but Simon recognizes him as Jesus and steps out onto the water.
Overwhelmed with doubt, Simon begins to sink, but Jesus lovingly lifts him up, encouraging him to keep his focus on him alone. In this profound moment, Simon confronts the deep grief of losing his unborn child, finding solace in the compassionate presence of Jesus.

With Utah Lake at its borders, vast plains and cedar trees surrounding the town, the place serves as the backdrop for a mini Jerusalem in UT. The production team was wiping every footprint right after the shooting to keep the place fresh & clean.

Some experiences on the set
On 3 June 2022, the actor playing the role of John The Baptist revealed that they spend an entire day to film a single scene inside the prison. The actor shared that shooting that prison scene was the best experience of him so far with the Chosen.
Clouds were hovering all over the sky and it was raining half the time. However, shooting for Season 3 of the Chosen is almost completed and the shooting is expected to wrap up by June 2022.
The filming was halted in July 2022 as the crew members were feeling exhausted after consecutive weeks of filming for seven weeks and in August, extreme weather conditions forced the team to take a break from filming.

You can grab a few gifts from The Chosen Gifts website to support the creators. The masks are going on sale from 1 April 2022. More importantly, just remember the billboard thing before binging The Chosen Season 3.
It will come out for sure in the future but it might be delayed due to various factors which are acting as a stumbling in the shooting process. We hope DJ will be fine soon and back on the set of marvelous Jesus series to play his part.
Most of the viewers who have watched at least one season of The Chosen have taken the path of spirituality and turned their life towards self improvement.

Elizabeth Tabish is not the “Virgin mother of Jesus” in this. 🙂 She’s just Mary Magdelene.
Thank you for mentioning that, made the correction.
God should be upper case G in May God bless everyone. Pagan god is lower case.
Peter labeled John the Baptist Creepy John at the beginning of Season 2 Episode one. Mary Magdalene backslides and gets repossessed by the devil and has to be delivered all over again. Jesus has to memorize and practice his sermon on the mount. Disciples built Jesus a stage for his sermon on the mount like he is some kind of actor or rock star ruined this exquisite film that could have been perfect.
Put yourself in the time that Jesus walked the earth. Think about the socio economic structure that was in place 2000 years ago. Think about the intention, getting the word of god out. Jesus is the son of god, and a man who walked on the earth amongst men. This preperation was suitable in that time, to preach the word of god amomgst thousands of men. Jesus remains humble. His followers more focused on the preperations.. Mary Magdelene fallomg back into sin is nothing more than a representation that even we, believers in christ who have given ohr heart to the lord, can be tempted and fall back into sinning again, and with this representation in the story, what was the outcome of Mary sinning again? She was forgiven by Jesus and regained herself in the love of god and light. We are forgiven, repent and do gods will.
Amen amen and amen!! Well Spoken Dillon, I was thinking those very same words but you spoke them much more elegant! I believe that we believers forget sometimes that we’re not perfect, even though we have been forgiven by God and followers of Christ Jesus we still sin on a daily basis in one way or another, in action, deed or thoughts, sins of omission, sins of commission and so on…. But the difference is that we should be quick to repeat, because then we are forgiven and placed back into right standings with God the Father who lives in Christ Jesus, just as Mary was forgiven, she repented ! Thank you so much for explaining for everyone!! God Bless You 🙏♥️
God ……… capital G. nonexistent gods are of course little g. Unless you are a liberal steeped in wokism??????
Yes I had those concerns as well. This is an artistic rendition of the General story. I decided for myself to just let it go.
I would have done it differently however, there is so much good we can miss if we spend our time pointing out faults. There is a beam in my eye. It will make it impossible to find the splinters in someone else’s .
I am also amazed at how many people think that because Jonathan R. Is a catholic that the Chosen was created by Catholic. Or because the Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints owned the set of season 2 and Video Angel is owned by people of that faith that That church created this. These people are so afraid of false teachings or false prophets that they forget to fill the oil in their lamps. I can see it now. When the Bridegroom comes they will say something like look their are Mormons or Catholics in the wedding party. That can’t be Him. They have false teachings. I’ll wait for the real Jesus Christ. How sad. Let’s stop focusing on whatever think is bad. Instead let’s focus on Jesus.
To see the sermon on the mount scene played up like preparation for a Billy Graham crusade is a bit of a let down for me, especially since Matthew is taken aside by Jesus as a scribe and advisor. If we look at Matthew, since it is connected to it, obviously, we see from the last paragraph of chapter 4 and the first verse of chapter 5 that the crowds were already gathered there and Jesus simply took advantage of their presence and began teaching. Still, the quality of the series as a whole and the “back stories” in particular makes it forgivable. The series is great and most of the interactions between the disciples they portray are very believable. As for what you said about the Catholics and Mormons, there will certainly be Catholics in the “wedding party” but Mormons as Mormons is unlikely as they have very bad theology that needs to be overcome.
Jesus is the judge. If Mormons are living up to their beliefs and are trusting in God, who are we to judge them? We must look to our own salvation ‘with fear and trembling’. There will be folks in the kingdom who have never heard the name of Jesus. God ‘winks at’ the time of their ignorance.
It is not our place to condemn anyone, whether they be Mormons or Jehovahs Witnesses or anything else. However we make judgements everyday, every one of us. Mormons believe that Jesus and satan are spiritual brothers, peers, or in other words equals. But this is not true. Jesus is the Creator and satan is a created being they are not anywhere close to be equals. It is clear that if a person is trusting in anything other that Jesus ALONE for their salvation, they misunderstand the gospel. God will not share His glory with anyone. I am not condemning a Mormon if they are trusting in Jesus plus Joseph Smith or Brigham Young, they are condemning themselves by thinking that there is any other name under Heaven whereby we must be saved. I am not sure where you get the idea that there will be folks in the kingdom who have never heard the name of Jesus. God does not as you say “winks at” the time of their ignorance. Certainly God is a God of Grace and if a person confesses his or her sin God is faithful and just to forgive their sin and cleanse them from all unrighteousness. But be very sure God will not pardon sin for someone who rejects His Son Jesus Christ.
Well put, I was at first worried myself. Because the Mormons actually believe Jesus and Lucifer are spirit brothers. But, I’ve been watching close and seems to be pretty correct. I’m just praying that the people that are believers of false doctrine will actually come to the Jesus of the Bible and maybe are just as blessed by this as I am. Praise God!!
How they are doing it Is for the most part correct I meant, not that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers. That is pure blasphemy.
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (who many people nickname “Mormons”), I just want to clarify that we believe Lucifer and Jesus are brothers in the same way that we are all spirit sons and daughters of God. Lucifer just chose to rebel and took a host of followers with him. But to clarify, it’s no different relationship than that of Jesus being our brother.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator, Lucifer is a created being. They are not equals and they are not brothers. They are not equals. Remember also that we are all created being, but we are not all “children of God”. In John’s gospel chapter 8:41-47, Jesus is speaking to the Pharisee’s (the religious elite of His day), and He told them “Ye are of your father the devil” There are two kinds of people in this world the “children of God” and the “children of the devil” and we do not always know who is and isn’t a child of God. Evangelism is speaking the good news of the gospel to everyone and God is the one that gives the increase. God draws His children to Himself. Unbelievers hear the gospel, and if they are a true child of God, He gives them the faith to believe, He convicts them of sin and they repent and He saves them by His grace.
Extremely well said! And your points are spot on! Thank you for your comment
Yes, let’s “Bridge the Gap” and focus
Yes Wendie I agree….Like Mel Gibsons The Passion, it is a very flawed and one must take it with a few grains of salt!
The Passion of the Christ has it roots in Catholicism. If you do a study of what the Bible says and what catholics say and believe, you will find there is a stark contrast between the two. You sometimes hear people say the Catholicism is a branch of Christianity, but you would be hard pressed to put the two side by side and compare them and be able to come to an honest conclusion that they are. I think you will find that they are very much antithetical to one another. There is no way when you honestly compare the two that you can say they are the same. You can no more say the Catholicism is the same as Christianity than you can say that Pharisee are like Christ. I am not saying that a Catholic can’t be a Christian, because I was a Catholic before I read the Gospel and converted to Christianity.
Catholics were studying and interpreting the Bible as the basis of the Catholic faith for 1500 years before Martin Luther invented his “version.” Ironically, at the end of his life, Luther condemned “every clown who, thinking he is imbued with the Holy Spirit, starts his own sect…”
So, when you can find for me in scripture, a Divine mandate that the Bible is the sole rule of faith (would have been news to the mostly illiterate martyrs who died in the ten persecutions between 33-313 AD, almost 200 years before a Christian Canon was compiled and approved), or that faith alone, without good works as exemplar of the grace a soul has accepted, is the path to Salvation, you might have a leg on which to stand.
Until then, good luck to you.
How do you know that they didn’t create one originally? You don’t unless you were there…
Let’s rejoice over this; that millions of people are committing or recommitting their lives to Christ as a direct result of this series. I know my life will never be the same. Let’s all keep our eyes on the prize.
I don’t think Mary gets repossessed. She experiences something that causes her to backslide–as we all sometimes do.
Please Jesus was elevated in the real sermon on the mount please dont be trivial.
Dallas Jenkins, I was saved in August of 99. I have studied the word passionately. This series has given me a picture of the new testament that I could never envision. It has renewed a fire in my heart. Thank you!
We hope, they will see it
Sad if this mostly fictionalized film renewed ones heart more than the Bible.
Be ye kind …
Said like a true Pharasee, your way or the highway. Are you a Democrat?
Totally uncalled for. Nowhere in the Bible do I see mention of Democrats or Republicans and saying that because you are one or the other that you are right or wrong is just plain not right. Judging is so prevalent in today’s society. We need to be concerned about our OWN sins and shortcomings.
Right on. Thank you.
What does it matter how peoples hearts become rekindled? All that should matter is that they do!!! And just like the Bible exists because God wants it to, so does The Chosen!!! It is extremely apparent that this series is reaching people! I went from watching this, to reading my Bible more than ever! Stop putting God in a box! He can do literally ANYTHING from the smallest of miracles to changing the hearts of kings and atheists! There are so many different interpretations of scripture and God uses any and every tool at hand to teach and reach different people at various times in their lives!
This series has served as a catalyst to help people seek Jesus the risen Lord. But DJ is right. It’s the Bible, the Word of God, that will truly set your heart on fire for the Lord. Remember the disciples walking with Jesus on the road to Emmaus? There hearts burned within them as the Lord explained the scriptures about him. And yes, “God” should always be capitalized!! God bless everyone.
The mere fact the author wrote in the title Spoilers and What Will Happen proves the Chosen film is far too fictionalized to be taken as true Bible events because to find out what happened is in the New Testament portion of the Bible for anyone to read.
As a lifelong Christian and student of the Bible I find nothing too objectionable about this series. They take Liberties sure but nothing anti-biblical by any stretch. It would be nice if they showed Jesus half brothers and sisters as the Bible says he had etc but I find this series to be beneficial to believers and non-believers alike. It is actually a thrilling departure from typical Jesus stories and extremely heartlifting and refreshing.
Thank you I agree wholeheartly The Gospel accounts do provide the back drop for the content of this series “Look and See for yourself” I am a nurse and this series, both seasons, has provided me with a Blessed relief after dealing with the harshnees, pain, devastation and sadness of COVID I thank the Chosen producer for providing this series to uplift us
Actually, there isn’t proof Jesus had half brothers or sisters. The passages in the Bible (I can’t remember where at the moment) where it mentions Jesus’ “brothers” doesn’t necessarily mean brother. It comes from the Aramaic word “aha” which means “kinsman” and then was changed into the Greek “Adelphos”, meaning brother. So it could still actually mean brother, but it’s certainly not for sure. As a Catholic, I believe Mary didn’t have any other children, but it could still also mean step brothers. So the makers of the Chosen wouldn’t want to add in half brothers and sisters that Jesus might not have had. God bless!
Mark 6:3 3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph,6:3 Greek Joses, a variant of Joseph Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
Mark 14:40 40Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joseph,15:40 Greek Joses, a variant of Joseph; also in verse 47 and Salome.
I totally agree….
I have wanted to ask that question too, will we see Jesus’s half brothers and sisters. In the Gospel of John chapter 7 they feature prominently. I hope the series doesn’t try to ignore this.
If anything “The Chosen” should drive us to get into our Bibles. And read them. To study to show ourselves approved unto God. To be like the Bereans who were more noble than them that were in Thessalonica in that they searched the Word daily to see if these things were true. The Chosen should not replace the Bible but direct the viewers to it.
I have seen both seasons and I think this series has been a blessing because some people may not read the Bible. The series gives them also a human side of Jesus that many films about Him do not. This also should cause people to get into the word to see how much truth is in the series. Even though a different approach has been given in this series, you can see His human side as well as His spiritual side which causes His followers in the series to believe He is God’s Son, the Messiah, and He has no sin. He causes others to think about the words He is speaking, in the series. And,
He still causes us to think about the words He is speaking in the Bible. Be Blessed.
This film should not be a replacement for the Bible. That is how Cult religions have began.
How does the Bible come better than the movie. The pagan populous are not great readers – we’re moved by story and films are stories.
The film Chosen accomplishes what Sunday School and Bible Study can kill. Ask the mellinnials who raised in church don’t go now.
“That is how Cult religions have began.”
Indeed. Then how did Christianity start and flourish for 485 years before a Canon was compiled and approved?
Could be you are idolizing a book per a wayward hubristic former priest named Luther, instead of following a Church?
I have been a faithful Christian since 1963, probably before some of you were even born. I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The Chosen. The parts that have been added only enhance the Biblical thought. It has made me read and study even more. I can’t wait until Season 3 comes out!!
Amen Alice, thank you for saying so. I seek God daily but it’s easy to get lost in this world, but then… I saw the chosen and I could see my weaknesses and where I need to work and strengthen my walk with the Lord, I felt seen again. God bless you all. And if you have God on your hearts ppl and believe that Jesus died for your sins and this series strengthens that belief…then how can you possibly be mislead by this? Love you all.
YOUR COMMENT COULD BE MINE, WORD FOR WORD. I AM SOON 67. BLIND IN ONE EYE NOW.
JUST FOUND OUT RE: THE CHOSEN FROM AN AD THAT POPPED UP ON MY TABLET. WATCHED FIRST 2 SEASONS IN 24 HOURS, THEN REWATCHED MOST OF IT AGAIN, BEFORE HAVING TO SLEEP. THAT WAS A WK AGO. YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST, MISS PATTI
You are so right. Thank you
I love the cast, they have portrayed the gospels very closely. Great job! I’m very happy to be able to watch seasons 1 & 2 and am very excited for season 3 to start. It’s has been hard to be patiently waiting but I’m.
I too was bothered by Jesus having to prepare for the sermon on the mount. But I agree that the series is so good that i can let it pass. As someone already said, as long as it doesn’t go against what bible says and seems like its in the realm of possibility we can go with it. To address concerns about people getting drawn to this rather than the Bible. We must accept that we are living in different times now. With today’s technology and culture, a lot less people read. People watch movies, videos, etc… a lot more. So if gospel can be delivered by these means who are we to criticize. Between the time of Jesus and the new testament was written there was a gap of many years. Gospel was delivered by word of mouth. The people who received it then were arguably more on fire for the Lord than most are now with the written word and all our present understanding. Let’s not put God in a box and think that He can only work in the way we think He should. Any way that people receive the gospel should be applauded. Especially when we hear that so many ppl have been touched to renewed faith.
Praise God and His bless
I am not bothered by Jesus having to prepare for the sermon. The second person of the Trinity emptied himself of much knowledge when he was born, so Jesus was not omniscient while on Earth, until his resurrection. He constantly prayed with the father for the divine knowledge he would need for his ministry. He had to learn to walk, talk, carpentry skills, etc like any human being except he was without sin.
What would make you think Jesus didn’t prepare before hand? It makes plausible sense, as do most of the other points shown in the series where we just don’t know, but can surmise. That is why they have a panel of people, e.g. Rabbi, Evangelical, Priest, Pastor, to discuss what could possibly have been during that time. Which allows them to give substance and added depth to the actual biblical stories. I think most modern day pastors, etc. prepare their sermons to make sure their thoughts are clear and concise.
welli thought the series the chosen was very good see.. when we get a sereis like this people go in with a big maginiying glass trying to find something they can find fault with its a good series the stage owned by mormons i dont as dallas as far as i know it evangelical i dont think he would let mormons own a share in production of this hes a good evangelical plus the mormons dont believe jesus was the son of god so johnathen a catholic so is mel gibson the question here is have they both madea comittment to our Lord jesus christ as a true believer cathoilcism will not get you into heaven it wont you must be born again the disciples were called christian not catholic well musent harp on
I loved season 1 and 2! It makes me want to read the Bible even more! I can’t wait till season 3, and the rest of the seasons to come out!!! It has been such a blessing to me and my husband, and I have also told others of this series! It may not be perfect but who or what is except for Our Father, Son and Holy Ghost! I think God has his hand in this and with will bless any one who watches, this what I truly believe! God bless the Chosen and all those who are part of this wonderful blessing……
The response to the Gift Dallas Jenkins is giving us (by God’s Grace and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) is showing us the elusiveness of the Unity for which we must strive (I Cor 1:10), the abomination that Division in the Body is (Proverbs 6:16-19) and just how much we – individually and collectively – must work to grasp the powerful Truth behind Phil 2:3-4 and Romans 12:3.
The precious episodes Dallas and his team produced thus far have drawn “casual affiliates” of The Faith (regrettably many professing Believers) into a renewed assessment of their concept of Jesus, The Christ; of seeing the marvelous reality of his true humanity as The Perfectly Man Divine dichotomy that also includes some treasured, brief “sparkles” of the Perfectly God Supreme Being interacting with the self-possessed Roman officials and legalistic religious authorities who fail to comprehend they are in the presence of a Fearsome Holy Lion who will someday remind them of their errant encounter/interaction with the Creator of All That Is.
The Bible IS the Eternal, Inerrant Word of the Living God. We MUST know it better each successive day than we knew it yesterday. It compels me/us – when read as if it is (what it truly is) The Bread of Heaven – to ask 4 Questions:
1. Do I believe?
2. What do I believe?
3. But what do I REALLY believe?
4. What then am I doing about it.
The Word of God compels action. Dallas Jenkins – at great “cost” to himself – has taken a bold and blessed action to which the Holy Spirit is calling those He invites to The Chosen to produce in them an awareness of their greatest spiritual needs or a revelation of their blindness and pharisaical attitudes.
Those who are “caught up” so powerfully in the Bible-responsive actions of DJ (as am I) that have produced 16 inspired episodes that lift up Jesus, The Christ are those who have been called/chosen (if you will)/privileged to see the first 2 seasons.
I think, when all is said and done, we will collectively be stunned by just whom we find in Heaven and whom we don’t. Thank you, Dallas, for acting on what the Word galvanized in your spirit. You validate the Fruit of the Tree verses from Matthew 7 and 12 which we all would be wise to heed.
Perhaps then we would stop fighting Europe’s Thirty Years War in America and embrace the reality of a great Catholic Saint (Thomas Aquinus), the Reality of Martin Luther and the message of Billy Graham as they repeated Paul’s Great Declaration: “The Gospel IS simple.” Jesus told us a Child can comprehend it, though the Wise struggle (I Cor 1:19-31) almost fruitlessly.
In an America that – based on secular human history only – is most likely in its final hours of existence (works of Toynbee, Sorkin and Spengler), I suspect Father God is behind The Chosen to give Everybody one more way to assess their Faith (or lack thereof) before they stand before that Lion of Judah in one of two Judgements.
Thank you to all who have cooperated with DJ to bring about the first 2 seasons of an anointed, inspired, Divinely-directed presentation of the splendor that emanates from Our Perfectly Man, Perfectly God Savior, Jesus The Christ! That would include the LDS community and BYU TV.
I am grateful, Dallas. Thank you.
George Xanthis is John the Disciple ,not the Baptizer.David Amito plays The Baptizer.
Good job, made the correction.
I love the series, but I have a different take on many of the characters. In particular,
Simon Peter: I believe he was a much more faithful and simply better man than what is portrayed in the first few episodes of Season 1.
Matthew: And as lovable a character as he is in the show, there is no way he was autistic, the way he is portrayed.
John the Baptist: Even though he lived in the wilderness, I don’t think he was the weird, creepy character that he is portrayed in the show.
Still, great show overall, and perhaps these portrayals add some spice.
I love the simplicity and humaness of The Chosen.
What a heartfelt experience of joy and learning for me.
I have felt an increase of love for others and understand more about how much Jesus loves us, shows mercy and kindness to us and claims us as His.
I have loved this series and cannot wait for season three. I would like to make just one comment to the person named William. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints (MORMONS), I would like you all to known we do believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. He is also our Savior and Redeemer. Thank you to the cast and producers of this series, it is beautiful.
I truly love the first two seasons of the chosen. I have been a Jesus believing Christian for about 50 years and a serious student of the Bible. I find no fault in this series in the first two seasons. Of course there is background interpretations concerning the day to day interactions between Jesus and his disciples. Unless you were there you cannot know every second or minute of what was done or said. Duh! In my opinion the whole production staff of The Chosen has done an excellent job, following the Word of God, in their rendition of the gospels. I applaud them tremendously. Those who are nitpicking about what they think truly happened in the day to day events must be over two-thousand years old. Trust that the Holy Spirit is guiding the whole staff of this production. Please try to enjoy this series for what it is, one’s interpretation of what they have read in the Word of God. Nothing more. If you have questions or concerns about what you see and hear, pray to God and read the Bible. I promise you this, God will tell you the same thing he tells me, nothing different. God is not the author of confusion.
Watch this series with the attitude of seeing the Word of God coming to life since we could not be there. While it may not be exactly correct, who cares, the significant and important information stated in the series has been accurately portrayed thus far. I too cannot wait until season 3 and those thereafter. God bless all.
Amen! This is so beautifully done and as a Bible scholar, the things that aren’t exact are in no way enough to cause me to change my understanding of scripture.
As someone who occasionally fights depression and feelings of inadequacy, I can get down on myself and this show helps me see that I am no worse than those that Christ chose in that time. It reminds me that God already knows what I have to confess and repent of, He’s just waiting for me to do it so He can make me clean again.
This show humanizes Christ and His disciples and shoes me that I never have to feel not good enough for God.
Thank you Randy. I think our world is so Critical, and certain people think their opinions are the only ones that matter. This makes no sense and I feel their egos are getting in the way… stop nitpicking! Nobody I know has walked with Jesus physically, so none of us can say what Jesus’ exact conversation was with anyone at that time. I binged watched the first 2 seasons of the chosen over and over again and can honestly say I felt so much closer to Jesus than ever before. It showed me how simple Jesus was to everyone ( in a good way) how approachable he was with his love, understanding, and forgiveness. He wasn’t complicated. If we could only make a small change in our lives and have faith to follow Jesus we will be able to make bigger changes down the road that can help so many. I’m looking forward to Season 3 and pray for everyone that are working with the Chosen to keep doing what you’re doing. We finally have something on the screen that his meaningful, and that meaning is God/Jesus in our life. God Bless!
I say forget about the different denominations love the lord thy God thank him for salvation and thank the Son of God Jesus for his sacrifice love the gift of the Holy Spirit. Enjoy what the almighty Father has has given you don’t abuse it or take it for granted but cherish it. Amen thank you Father.
Let’s continue to pray for all who are involved in this wonderful, inspiring gift and pray for each other, who are also the chosen, that our lives may clearly reflect our Redeemer! Love to you all!
July 2022 release date? Dude, that’s not how production works. If they were still shooting in May, as you say, there’s no way they’d finish post production by July. Every minute of finished video requires hundreds of labor hours, at least.
So either they’re much further into production than you stated or they’ll launch season 3 much later in the year or sometime in 2023. We’ll see.
I understand but the season 2 episodes started coming out just after the completion post production. So can happen with this season. At least, we cam keep our hopes up.
You predict… what, for Season 3? 😳 Have you even read the Bible you’re making plot predictions upon? It says right there what happens next. Why don’t you read it, and amend your ridiculously ignorant post?
I found this article when trying to find information about season 3, because I have enjoyed The Chosen so much. And then I caught the comments. No one should seek to build the kingdom of God by tearing down and insulting the beliefs of others. Let’s leave mudslinging to bad political campaigns and concentrate on what draws us together…the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ. The world has more than enough enmity right now without adding to it.
I have to agree with you on this. I was brought to tears with the last 10 seconds of season 2. When the multitude starts to kneel, bow, sit at the Masters feet. Does it really matter that it was on a stage or not? I would also like to quote from the Bible;
Galatians 3:26-28; For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:11; Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
We are all ONE in Christ Jesus. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I believe in Christ. I have faith and therefor am a son/daughter of God. It comforts me to know that anyone else out there who also believes in Him, is my brother in the belief of God and His son, Jesus Christ. It is what He taught, it is what He wanted, for us to be ONE, in Him.
This series is helping do just that. Thank you to DJ and all the efforts of so many to put media out there that is uplifting, good, inspiring, helpful, resonating, impactful…I could go on and on!
The one thing this portrayal did for me was to show the human side of Jesus. My ability to comprehend the life of Jesus as both God and man was always difficult. This series proposes that he has a sense of humor, gets tired and shows other characteristics of man….something I had never really imagined. I remember watching the mini-series “Jesus of Nazareth “ when I was younger and he was always stern and straight-faced. The Chosen gave me a view of Him as truly loving, kind and happy…one I’m drawn to!
CHRISTMAS IS A PAGAN TRADITION, wake up Chosen directors !!!!
They knew all of these things, the date, the traditions, were pagan ideas. The Puritans banned Christmas for 20 years in America before the celebration became just too popular.” ,
The unexpected origins of popular Christmas traditions
December 25, 2018 / 9:05 AM / CBS News
Though December 25 is the day Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the date itself and several of the customs we’ve come to associate with Christmas actually evolved from pagan traditions celebrating the winter solstice.
“Christmas is really about bringing out your inner pagan,” historian Kenneth C. Davis told “CBS This Morning.” According to Davis, Christmas was celebrated as early as the fourth century, suggesting that it had almost nothing to do with Jesus Christ.
“In ancient Rome there was a feast called Saturnalia that celebrated the solstice. What is the solstice? It’s the day that the sun starts coming back, the days start getting longer. And most of the traditions that we have that relate to Christmas relate to the solstice, which was celebrated in ancient Rome on December 25. So when Christianity became the official religion in a sense, in Rome, they were able to fix this date. … There’s a little discrepancy about it but there’s no question that the fact that it was celebrated in Rome as an important day with gift giving, candle lighting, and singing and decorating houses really cemented Christmas as December 25.”
Another custom we can thank the pagans for? Christmas trees. Davis explained that the evergreen trees signaled the “return of life” and “light” as the winter solstice meant the days were starting to get longer.
“They started to hang an apple on it, so little red balls on green trees — get the picture here? … So all of these things celebrate the idea that life and light are coming back into the world, which is essentially what Christmas means to Christians around the world.”
Mistletoe, though, that was started by the Druids, who believed it was an all-powerful healing item from the sacred oak tree.
“If you met someone in the forest you gave them the sign of peace under the mistletoe so people started to hang mistletoe above their doorways as a symbol of peace. This was such a powerful symbol of paganism that English churches actually banned the use of it,” Davis said.
Davis also pointed out that the very first instance of a “war on Christmas” actually dates back to the Puritans in the mid-17th century.
“They knew all of these things, the date, the traditions, were pagan ideas. The Puritans banned Christmas for 20 years in America before the celebration became just too popular.”
Wow. A Historian. On CBS! That settles it.
Did you ever stop to think that the Church Fathers who set these dates were a lot closer to the actual events than some 21st century hackademic looking for his 15 minutes of fame?
I love this series and have watched it 4 times already, The one question I have is why Mary Magdalene was initially called Lilith. There is a myth of a demonic offspring named Lilith, but not anywhere in the actual Bible. I’m very excited about the new season. It is obvious Dallas and the actors/crew put their all into the show.
I can hardly wait to see the Season 3 of The Chosen. It’s been a joy to watch, and we forget sometimes that other versions of Bible stories have not always kept to the Bible, but they are filling in gaps that help tell the story so people enjoy the process. It’s important to remember this — so we don’t argue amongst ourselves. It’s a bit of license to enhance the plot, but we know, if we read our Bibles what is truth and what isn’t. I’ve been so blessed by this series that I hope everyone will drop the arguments — recognize the efforts of DJ and the cast who are working hard to bring something for us to enjoy, and even pray for them. The task they have taken on cannot be without cost. Satan will always try to work chaos and division, let’s not contribute to that, but rather be a little considerate, and pray for them. I think DJ has his heart in the right place, and God will bless him and those who work with him for it. I know we have all enjoyed the series, so lets move to being thankful and bless them and their efforts and pray for God to lead them as they move forward, they have a large task ahead of them. I bless you all, in Jesus’ name and trust you will enjoy Season 3 as it is revealed, and that our hearts will stir for the right reasons to be better disciples — I am sure that is your intention as well. I’m excited about seeing what is filling Season 3…..Hurry, hurry November!!
You’re right about the comments on Christmas. Most people don’t even know, and there is still so much more to it than even the information you posted. Tradition isn’t always seeped in Christian faith or beliefs — we have to be aware and knowledgeable and make right choices so we are not caught up in a darkness we weren’t aware of. I have opted to celebrate Hanukkah (Festival of Lights) as that is one of the times that have been noted as possibly, and I say ‘possibly’ being the time Jesus’ was conceived by the Holy Spirit. I just embrace that as my Jesus 1st Coming celebration — a new way to look at it for me that I can justifiably practice without any other added things. I use lights, as that is a Feast of Lights — and I no longer put up a tree — I have a beautiful Nativity set my MIL made for me that I set up as a focal point in my living room — as a reminder of Jesus’ birth — and that’s about it. No other big deals about decorating — I know what all the symbols used for Christmas mean, and I can’t do that any longer knowing what I know. So just search it out, the information is available — then make your own decision about how to do Jesus Birth/Conception. There are various opinions on when Jesus was born, and you can actually figure out the time, based on Elizabeth’s pregnancy and John’s time to be the Priest who entered the Holy Place. I don’t have the information with me now or I’d post it here. But it is an interesting study — in ending this, I would say that any time you celebrate Jesus is a good thing — but we do need to know that ‘how’ we do it is authentic and not filled with other forms of paganism. I don’t think most people mean to, they just don’t know anything about it. Blessings to all, and this is just my thoughts, I’d prefer no real ugly things be said about me, so thank you for that.
If only 1 person comes to or back to Christ as a result of The Chosen, it has been well worth it! Thank you for making this series- it is accessible to all.
I’m sorry that there are so many negative comments in these posts. It is not up to us to judge anyone. (But must note that to be called Christian, you must believe in the Trinity).
So looking forward to Series 3. I love that the story of Christ’s life is so detailed and can’t help but binge watch! It really makes you think and look at the scriptures again.
Thanks again for the best piece of mission for a long time. May God bless you all.xxx
