Yesterday afternoon my girls and I watched the first episode of "The Chosen". The series is an attempt to portray Jesus "through the eyes of those who meet him". I have not watched the whole series. Like any dramatic portrayal, it will fail in one way or another to fully capture the full Biblical vision of Jesus. But I am heartened by the admonition in its opening credits of the first episode:

The Chosen is based on the true stories of the gospels of Jesus Christ. Some locations and timelines have been combined or condensed. Backstories and some characters or dialogue have been added.

However, all biblical and historical context and any artistic imagination are designed to support the truth and intention of the Scriptures. Viewers are encouraged to read the gospels.

I would encourage you to 'check it out' and let me know what you think.
