Bible Study Company Interview with Dallas Jenkins of THE CHOSEN TV Series. The first-ever TV series on the life of Jesus Christ that features the Jewish context of Scripture!
Dallas Jenkins, the Creator of The Chosen TV Series, joins Ric and Mary Joyner in "Podcast for Pewsitters" to discuss the show.
We love the introduction. It is a description of repentance!
The music is outstanding!
What brought the TV series to life for Mary and me is the "backstory" of the characters. Scripture is a type of narrative. But to round out the story, we need to "immerse" ourselves in the lives of the characters. Bringing to life the characters is what The Chosen TV series does. What is His will, and how do we please Him is our constant question?
A particular joy is to watch the characters giving up their "lives" to follow Christ and how that impacted their families. Christ chose His disciples in the beginning of His Journey of obedience to the Father. Onward to the cross, He went for our salvation. The disciples did not know what lay around each corner. So, as you watch The Chosen..."Get ready for different!".
Dallas shares about the many difficulties The Chosen experienced to complete the first season, and God met each one. When Dallas shares with us the experiences in his enthusiastic style, we are on the journey with him, so please join us!
Mary and I are both so excited to watch this series continue. We highly recommend it to all of you. We are also so grateful to Dallas Jenkins for honoring Bible Study Company and coming on the Podcast!

Official Statement of The Chosen
WHY A TV SERIES ABOUT JESUS?
We've been making movies for some of the biggest studios in Hollywood for 20 years. But a subject this important shouldn't be entrusted to Hollywood. It needs to be made by us.
Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I am doing a new thing..."
The Chosen is a new thing.
* How it was financed is new: We're the #1 highest crowd-funded media project of all time -- over $10 million from over 19,000 people.
* The content is new: We're the first-ever multi-season show about the life of Christ.
* The way to watch it is new: We're the first show to have our own app that connects directly to your streaming devices. No subscription needed. Just search "The Chosen" where you get apps and download to your phone.
* How it's reaching the world is new: The show is free, but by "paying it forward," you help ensure people around the world can see it -- we're currently in every country.
Welcome to a new thing!
