The Chosen is not the Gospel and is not a substitute for studying the Gospel. There is no better source about God than God Himself. The best fact checker is Jesus Himself, he is available 24/7 with no call waiting and no call forwarding…. Jesus can hear and answer each of us directly at the same time.
The Chosen is “the first-ever multi-season series about the life of Christ. The free show tens of millions of people won’t stop talking about.”
The success of the series is a powerful reminder to Hollywood that faith-focused projects can sometimes become breakthrough hits.

Take it from a critic and a Christian with an aversion to Christian entertainment: The show is good.
– Chris DeVille
The Chosen carries the character development of House of Cards or The Crown, but with an authenticity to the biblical narrative like nothing I’ve ever witnessed in faith-based media.

The Chosen is a television drama based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth, created, directed and co-written by American filmmaker Dallas Jenkins. It is the first multi-season series about the life of Jesus, and season one was the top crowd-funded TV series or film project of all time. The series’ creators stated that they had hoped to distinguish the new series from previous portrayals of Jesus by crafting a multi-season, episode-based story. The series portrays Jesus “through the eyes of those who met him”.
The show has used innovative methods to finance its production and stream the series. The show is financed via crowdfunding; the show is free to watch and viewers are asked to “pay it forward” by contributing whatever amount they wish to fund future seasons, and contributors may receive perks such as appearing as an extra in the film. As of 2021, viewers had contributed $40 million towards its production, making it by far the most successful crowdfunded entertainment project. The show is available through a free app. It is also available on streaming platforms like the free Angel Studios, Amazon Prime Video and Peacock.

It uses scripture as the skeleton for its story and obviously adds a TON of stuff. I’m not aware of anything that contradicts scripture. Just make sure you don’t let it become Gospel to you.
Currently watching it with my family and it is really good. We are about half way through season 1. It is heavily based on scripture and gives a disclaimer that some stories are mashed together or shortened for the sake of brevity (i.e. including it in a 45min episode).
It is entertaining and Biblically accurate. Would recommend
