It’s no secret that when it comes to parenting during a crisis, all screen time rules are out the window. We’ve watched our fair share of Netflix and Disney+ over the last several months, but mama can only take so much Frozen 2.
A friend of ours recommended a series called, The Chosen. And if I’m being honest, he didn’t just recommend it, he RAVED about it.
It’s the first ever multi-season show about the life and Gospel of Jesus Christ, and it’s FREE to stream on any device through The Chosen app.
The series, released by VidAngel, has garnered attention in Christian circles and secular ones, as it became the No. 1 crowdfunded media project in history, with over 16,000 investors giving $10 million to see the project come to fruition.
And it has not disappointed. In January, The Chosen joined acclaimed productions like Netflix’s The Crown and Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, earning two Movieguide Award nominations. Actor Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus in the series, took home the Grace Award for a TV Performance.
“Playing the role of Jesus Christ is the preeminent honor, not only of my career, but of my life,” Roumie said. “With this series, we’re afforded the opportunity to take our time with the greatest story ever told…and savor it.”
