149: “The Chosen” (with Dallas Jenkins)

We have been watching and admiring “The Chosen” since the beginning of this tv series, and are so honored to be joined in this episode by the show’s creator, Dallas Jenkins. “The Chosen” is the largest crowd-funded media project of all time, and a multi-season series about the life of Christ and His chosen disciples that is reaching people of so many different faith traditions. The stories and the characters are portrayed in a way that assures us that we are chosen by Him despite (and perhaps because of) our imperfections. The authenticity and relatability of this show has inspired us to continue to deepen our personal relationship with Christ and we invite YOU to watch this amazing production and open yourself to its message.
