The Chosen Bible Study
The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season television series based on the life of Christ. The series has captured the attention of millions of people around the world. The Chosen has impacted countless lives in helping them to either connect or reconnect with the Bible message of the gospel.
The Chosen is NOT the Bible. The Chosen does not seek to be or replace reading and studying the Bible. The creator of The Chosen makes the following statement that is worth noting:
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 However, all biblical and historical content and artistic imagination are designed to support the truth and intention of the Scriptures. Viewers are encouraged to read the gospels. – Dallas Jenkins
And that is exactly what we will do. We are going to take the opportunity to pair viewing The Chosen with diving into the gospel message of the Bible.
The format for this Bible study will be watching a short portion of an episode, discussing the scriptural connections, and exploring the main themes and messages for our own personal life application. Since we will not be viewing entire episodes in one sitting during our Bible study time, you will be encouraged to watch the episodes in their entirety at home so that you can understand the full context intended.
The Chosen Bible Study will be held on Sunday mornings in the church lower level from 9:35-10:20 a.m. The study will run from Mar. 12 through May 21 (Sunday, Apr. 9 off for Easter). During these Sundays, we will be covering the first half of Season 1 of The Chosen. While we welcome you to come every week, please attend any Sunday morning that works for you. All are welcome!
