How does it Work?

See the record-shattering series about Jesus that has a 9.7 on IMDb. Watch full episodes for free, stream on your iPhone or cast to your TV! The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus. Created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen allows us to see Him through the eyes of those who knew Him. No matter where you are in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you. MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR I’ve been a believer my whole life, I’ve attended Christian schools my whole life, and I’ve heard the stories of Jesus countless times. I’ve also seen every Jesus movie and miniseries ever made, and there have been dozens. So why a new TV show about Jesus? Because I have a passion for people to hear the “old, old story” again … for the very first time. When I see Jesus movies, it’s sometimes hard for me to feel moved or excited. I've heard the stories before, and many Jesus projects just take you from Bible story to Bible story, not spending as much time on the humanity and backstories of all these characters. And they sometimes feel stiff and formal. So when we started to write a show that explores Jesus through the eyes of those around Him, we were repeatedly moved and excited. We explored the backstories of Simon Peter, Matthew, Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, and a few of Jesus’ miracle recipients, and in turn experienced Him in the way they did. We couldn’t help but identify with their recklessness, rough pasts, religious piety, and desperation for life change. And ultimately, their redemption. One of our favorite responses from an early screening? "The story of Jesus that actually appealed to my teenagers!" No matter where you’re at in your journey with Christ—whether you’re one of the many people in the gospels who encountered Jesus after a horrific past without Him, or you’re a Nicodemus who’s been a lifelong member of the God team—Jesus proved over and over that we have so much to learn and innumerable traits that need change. We hope this show allows you to see Jesus as they did. The end of the trailer tells you how to watch this show right now.

  • Best Bible app ever

    By Kate0916
    So I was out playing outside with my brother and my dad comes out and says guys I want you to come see this is a Bible show and I heard about it and it’s really cool ! So me and my brother went inside and we started to watch episode one by one and on the third episode right when it was Jesus loves the little children I realize that it was an app I thought you had to buy it on TV but I realized it was an app so my dad got it for me and I really enjoyed it it’s like one of my favorite shows now even though I’ve seen all the episodes it’s just so amazing I watch it every time and I’m pleased every time I watch it and every time I watch it I ask my question to myself am I learning some thing and then I know I am because I now know that Jesus talk to Nicodemus and the woman at the well that was a really good one and it was super awesome too ! but my favorite episode of all was probably Jesus loves the little children I love Abby and all her friends and Jesus teaching them all about how much he loves them because that brought me closer to the Lord and I know I’m even more Closer with the Lord than I was before now so please get this app it’s really amazing and it moved my heart closer to God than it’s ever been in my entire life !!!!
  • Blessed beyond measure!!

    By mrsbean88
    Oh I am so blessed by this series! Blessed to tears, many times! I grew up watching more Bible movies and stories than I can count, and this is now my favorite of them all. Even watching the whole first season twice, I look forward to watching it again before long and am on the edge of my seat in anticipation for season 2! What matters to me most when watching Bible accounts, is: does the depiction of Jesus show authenticity, love in his eyes, tenderness and compassion? In this series not only do I see that every scene he's in, but he portrays a calm confidence that is neither cocky nor insecure, and that is a very necessary attribute. Also it reveals his humor and genuine understanding as he meets each and every person right where they're at and connects with them! I also appreciate the time and care that directors and writers took to capture the real humanity of each of the disciples, in their varied and relatable struggles. Thank you Chosen team, from the bottom of my heart for passionately putting this together! I will continue to pray that this production will radically touch the hearts of believers and not-yet-believers alike! That they may come to realize more than before the truth of the love of Jesus more deeply and fully!
  • “I have called you by name, you are mine”

    By _ashleyeliz_
    Can’t believe I just found out about this show today. I’ve already watched episodes 1-7 and about to watch episode 8. Hey go hard or go home. & we aren’t supposed to leave home right now 😂.. but I can’t express how much this show moved me in just one day. The healing of Mary Magdalene was so moving. I was raised in church. I know all the stories. But to see some of them acted out through the eyes of someone like Mary ... really puts it in perspective. Possessed to the point she was declared unable to be saved by man. & they are calling her Lilith. When Jesus said “Mary” for the first time I was shook. Then he healed her. 😭😭 I’ve been praying for a long time that God would help me learn to understand the love of him and Jesus because I am very physical. I can’t see him. I know he’s there. But how can I love something I can’t see? Watching these stories depicted on screen by the INCREDIBLE acting crew, shows how loving and giving Jesus really is. & that all God wants us to do is follow him. I can’t wait to see more!!!!! I wish there were ten seasons to binge 😭 I cry every episode. What a perfect time for this show to start really surfacing too.. these are trying times. The world needs the healer.

    I have watched it in one day and then lent it to my daughter who took forever to sit down and watch it but when she FINALLY did, she called to tell me how much they enjoyed it and the many emotions she felt. She has since lent it to her little sister who loved it and wanted to hold onto it because she wants her husband and 14 year old son to also watch it AGAIN LIKE PULLING TEETH lol. Then it will go to our 3rd daughter who tried to watch it once but with her 3 kids under ten constantly interrupting her she gave up. We had a discussion and told her she needed to TRY AGAIN when she was alone and the children were in bed. Yes, the children should also watch it but they are not ready YET... I will then give it to our son who stated he’s not sure if he believes in God, that broke my heart but I am hoping he will take it and watch it. BABY STEPS! There are many other family members that it will be passed onto before I get it back TO RE-WATCH IT. I am so looking forward to the second one but I continue to work on my patience because all good things come with patience. I SO ENJOYED THE CHOSEN and felt so many different emotions. God bless all that are involved in this project because it is powerful.
  • A New and Refreshing, Relatable, and Rewatchable Form of Christian Media

    By pianoTF20
    The Chosen takes a fresh look at the stories of Jesus Christ found in the Gospels of the Bible, mostly through the eyes of His followers: real human beings with real human, relatable problems, whose lives changed forever through their encounter with the man called Jesus of Nazareth. What separates this show from previous adaptations of Bible stories is an intentional focus on the humanity of Jesus that allows Him to relate with imperfect people, while still maintaining the “character” of Jesus as the Son of God. The app allows users to watch this unique show directly without needing a subscription to some streaming service, and has the capabilities of casting the episodes from the app to a TV. Given the nature of the uniqueness and newness of this app, some bugs have occasionally occurred. However, the developers have a direct help section of the app and have responded (and fixed) issues previously experienced. The overall experience with this app is fantastic and highly inspirational that breaks down barriers and allows people from various backgrounds and faiths (or even lack thereof) to have an enjoyable, potentially life changing experience.
  • Knowing Jesus vs know About Jesus

    By Aranimzi
    I am trying to remember on how i did find this app but i cannot; but i am soo glad that i found it. I have watched so many stories about Jesus , heard about the stories & read my Bible about Jesus. I grew up in church & i am a preacher’s daughter. To make the long story short i became a prodigal daughter....but God....found me. I have never encountered Him growing up in church.. I thought my life was ok because my dad is a preacher. But God has a greater plans for my life. Jesus changed my heart & turned everything for my good. My past does not define me but God gave me a new name. Daughter of the King of kings. Every time i thought about Jesus’ love for me i get so overwhelmed. I see myself to some of the characters here when i watch this series “The Chosen”. I have always wondered before of what kind of a person or what kind of life they have before and after they meet Jesus. I cried to some of the episodes because it reminded when I met Jesus & got to know Him more as my Savior & Lord!! Thank you for making this series! Taking for pointing people to Jesus Christ! Your reward is in heaven! To God be all the Glory!
  • Learned so much!

    By Stormellaaa
    Learned many things I didn’t already know this really gave me a sense of what it may have been like to the communities Jesus taught at and how the people lived back in that time. The historical context is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately and this helped! The deep dive with biblical scholars helped break down each episode and give me a greater understanding from other religious views as well which was really neat growing up in a community where I only ever had a Christian (methodist) outlook. Downloaded on iOS device (ios 13) the app works just fine when streamed on my phone no issues other than sometimes if I clicked off the screen and came back I had to hit pause and play again. As for the reviewers saying it’s click bait they must not read well- as of aug 2020 there’s an option to pay it forward and support the show and help others watch for free or you can accept a pay it forward and watch for free you don’t have to pay to watch but you can if you so feel inclined. Super excited for the seasons and stories to come!
  • Amazing, Fresh take on the life of Jesus and The disciples

    By hopleus
    Unlike any Hollywood rendition or Christian one for that matter, of the Life of Christ and His followers. Jesus is shown to have humor, and human like characteristics as well as Devine characteristics, which is more realistic to the True Jesus, than a lot of movies portray Him as. Because He is Fully Human, Fully God. I love that they show Both sides of Him. I also love the way the disciples are portrayed and how a lot of the Biblical accounts are show, unlike other movies or shows. That skip a lot, and have no character development or backstories. The backstories in “The Chosen” really enhance the show. As it makes them more relatable and more dynamic to the viewer. I also particularly love how the show is exciting and really puts things into perspective. And How the creator urges his viewers to not replace the show with actual scripture and how the show makes people want to read scripture and bring them to God. So it’s amazing. I would recommend this is anyone who wants to have solid and serious/ entertaining series about Jesus. (Not cheesy all, so that’s a plus) God Bless you
  • Unique and interesting

    By Masks banana Shane d
    I’ve watched a lot of Jesus movies, and I’m not the type to automatically like a movie/show because it’s Christians. I think shows should be judged by equal standards of story-telling, regardless of their message. But I have to say, this show keeps me interested in a way that other Jesus movies often don’t. It immerses you in the culture and customs of the time period, makes you think about what the lives of the characters were probably like by telling stories that are pieced together from the biblical details yet not explicitly told in the Bible, telling stories that are not simply re-hashes from other Bible movies. This show does not stray from its biblical source material, but it does tell stories you’re probably not used to seeing depicted on the screen. Also, the overall cinematic quality is better than many low-budget Bible movies, making the story come to life. Finally, I can watch Gospels with my motivation being actual interest, rather than feeling like I need to support another Christian cause.
  • Absolutely love it!

    By Pmwhit
    If you haven’t watched this yet, do yourself a favor and watch it. Yes, it’s that good. I found myself getting caught up in the characters, and wishing each episode was longer. This series portrays the life of Jesus through the eyes of those around him. I like the shows because it doesn’t sugar coat the message. We see the flaws in people, but we also see their strengths. I love how they portray the human side of Jesus, yet we never lose sight of his deity. It makes you so aware of why the inner group around Jesus called him Friend, as well as Savior. It’s amazing how Jesus called the disciples, each so different in personalities and backgrounds in some cases, and turned them into men that evangelized others so that the Good News continued to spread around the world. If the other seasons are as good as season one, it will be an informative, faith renewing journey that I can’t wait to take. It so makes me want to tag along with them on their missionary journey. I want to be able to call Jesus friend, and the disciples, friends.
