At a conference not too long ago, I was asked to give a review of The Chosen TV Series. I did so, but before I began my critique, I informed the audience that I hadn’t watched even one frame of the series, and my guess was that that revelation would make more than a few people upset with my criticisms. The immediate response by those enamored with the series about the life of Christ was to scorn everything I said, saying, “He’s like those who criticize books, even the Bible, without having read them!” I can relate to that. I’ve had many discussions with some who tell me what the Bible says without having read it themselves, so I can see why my initial review and its approach would put some people off.

Since my first critique I have viewed a couple of the programs, parts of which I’ll address. However, I want to explain why I believe watching the series is not necessary for rejecting it. In doing so, my explanations will appeal to Scripture and reason in light of Isaiah’s words, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 1:18). Why isn’t it necessary to watch The Chosen in order to criticize it, and how would that be any different than critiquing a novel without having read it? First of all, a novel is defined generally as “a fictitious prose narrative of book length, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism.” In other words, it’s a made-up story. Yet it must be read in order to be evaluated.

  • Pro 18:13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

  • Attention., THE BEREAN CALL.

    FIRST & FOREMOST, I FOLLOW NO BELIEF, NOT ONE! I FOLLOW GOD of Jewish belief. For you, and your opinion, I have one as well.

    David Charles Haddon Hunt, didn’t know the man, but did listen to his programs, didn’t always agree, ‘that’s THE human imperfection in all humanity, right.

    CONCERNING YOUR PERSONAL VIEWS. The Chosen Series

    Do NOT FOLLOW MAN’S WAYS, or ANY RELIGION or BELIEVE, RELIGION IS DIVISIVE. Fact.

    This includes Christianity, which is Catholic born, or any religion thereof., any other man-made religion… none! I’m certain you know this, or don’t want to accept this fact, inclusive I’m sure you’ve studied the following.,

    SO… 

    Tell us please, HOW MANY TIMES HAS, SCRIPTURAL WRITINGS, TEACHINGS BEEN ...RE-EDITED, RE-WRITTEN?
    Context-content, verbiage, alliteration makes a difference as well., then comes that preacher? = Alliteration once more, adding to facial expressions.

    Catholic Church is guilty, Jewish, Baptist, Islam, all are guilty and many more.

    TRANSLATION to TRANSLITERATION

    Losing its true richness interpretation, or actual meaning? Over many countless seasons Scriptural Writings as I mentioned, aren’t original, opinion’s mine to own, and have found prove. Take for example, THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS? NO MENTION OF …Jesus Christ? Why?

    DEAD SEA SCROLLS?

    The following of many studies done by well known researchers. Not me, I’m studying them. Following quote from one of them. “the RIGHTEOUS ONE?” = Jesus Christ? As this one continues with the following.

    “So, who were these people who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls? The beliefs and lineage of the “Dead Sea Sect,” as they’re generally referred, have been debated, but many believe them to have been a group of Jewish ascetics, known as the Essenes..” moving on.

    KJV IS ALL CATHOLIC. ALL. TELL ME OTHERWISE.

    Many bibles are lying, have deleted verses, I'm sure you know this? I HAVE RESEARCHED to many, tired of it! Do you know this? All those re-writes. NIV IS THE WORSE, as they too publish SATAN’S BIBLE, KNOW THIS?

    THE CHOSEN SERIES?

    The Chosen series IS NOT TAKING AWAY but researching, writing THE WHAT IF?
    I don’t get taken IN BY LIES, I’M WELL VERSED IN SCRIPTURAL WRITINGS, but not perfect, still studying, praying for guidance from God. Not from man, you! ‘feeding the emotions?””” not to me dude! You did say as such.

    THERE WAS NO EVIL WRITTEN IN-TO THE MOVIE SCRIPT. NONE. More-OVER.

    THE NAME? calling the KETTLE BLACK?

    AS you know '''Jesus -Christ... that NAME didn't exist... THE NAME... Jesus Christ is A ... ROMAN CATHOLIC DEITY., NAME.

    Stating that fact, JESUS CHRIST ... IS A ROMAN CATHOLIC CITIZEN’S name. Fact. Ask the Pope.

    HE WAS BORN A JEWISH MAN, DIED A JEWISH MAN, IS THE ONLY SAVIOR! That Jewish man is, not your Jesus Christ. FACT! You’re guilty of this, as well many more. “My name is forever.””” You know this verse. You worship the Catholic deity. FACT.

    '''BIBLICAL ACCURACY?'''' You state?

    Would be to worship in his TRUE NAME, again.
    ''''I came in my fathers name?"""" "No-one had the right to change his name too., ''''''JESUS CHRIST.....the Roman Catholic ....your deity? Fact. I leave my breathing freedoms from God, of Ysrael with the following, which I’m certain y’all have studied. Gives the answers to the name change, and you know this.

    FIRST SEVEN First ECUMENICAL CONSULS OF NICAEA.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_seven_ecumenical_councils...

    I love my creator God, of YSRA’EL, my Messiah, Savior.

  • The Chosen fiction is PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE. It is specifically refuted by Paul and certainly by Jesus .But it persist.

  • I watched patiently for 9 minutes before stopping this video. It is apparently a lengthy exercise in straw man fallacy. The very first part of The Chosen Episode 1 starts off with saying:

    "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.

    The original names, locations and phrases have been transliterated into English for anything spoken."

    Clearly, The Chosen is not a translation of the gospels. This video is reviling the creators for making something that is intended to honor our Lord. This video doesn't acknowledge that the series makes this disclaimer, so in that regard this video is deceitful (or at least misleading).

    Film has nothing to do with Revelations' warnings to scribes instructing them to not add or remove content from the copies they make and distribute. This is a series based on a true story. It's an interpretation of how things could have happened.

    For example: People who have read the gospels know that nothing is said about Peter and Matthew having a relationship before meeting Jesus. They know that it is added on to make the characters and story relatable and entertaining. Peter being a fisherman owing significant taxes to Matthew (Rome) at the tax collector booth, filing for too many extensions, struggling to make ends meet, sinning by gambling and by ratting out fellow fishermen to Rome for fishing on the Sabbath, etc. We know the Bible doesn't specify these things, but it doesn't rule them out either. I think it is a great depiction of how Jesus' disciples were struggling with the sinful lives they were living prior to meeting and walking with our Lord and Savior. It is character development, and portrays the miracle of the fish caught in the nets as being more than a demonstration of power, but rescuing Peter from a seemingly inescapable bad situation (by providing a way to pay his debt to Rome) while simultaneously teaching.

    As for people who haven't read the gospels, by watching this they should enjoy a great and inspiring story, and become more interested in actually reading the Bible. The Bible (Old Testament) is cherished by the characters and is often referred to.

  • His name is not Jesus for one, it is Yahshua and the Shroud that he was resurrected in exists and it has been proven to have properties that are explainable by modern science. The Artwork of early Christendom changed from the clean shaven Roman to the long haired bearded man we recognize as Christ when the Shroud of Turin was displayed in Edessa to Constantinople, to France then to Italy.. Scientists know that the 3 dimensional image on the shroud was caused by light energy that we are not able to reproduce today. The Shroud even has pollen on it that only comes from the area around Jerusalem and it has the rarest blood type on Earth, AB.. The Sudarium of Oviedo in Spain, is a perfect match forensically and the scriptures confirm there were two pieces of linen used for his burial.
