“The Chosen”

            Sometime in the middle of June 2022, I was enjoying fellowship with many of my colleagues from the mathematics department in the high school where we teach.  It was a nice time to get together after the school year had just completed. We were socializing and talking about many different topics. One question I was asked is if I had seen any episodes of “The Chosen.” I was honest with everyone there when I said, “I have no idea what you are talking about.” Several of my friends were in disbelief. They could not believe that I did not know anything about this series about Jesus Christ. They told me to watch the first season, one episode at a time, and see how it goes. This is exactly what I did.

            In the first episode of season one, one story line is about Mary Magdalene and her being possessed by the devil. No matter what anyone tried, nothing was working with dispelling the demons from her body. In steps Jesus. Guess what happened? He heals her and the demons that were overtaking her body were dispelled from her. What was nice to see is that Mary could not live a normal life because of the demons within her. Jesus took care of all of this. Once Jesus healed her, Mary went back to living as normal a life as she could possible live. It was an incredible act of God to see Mary healed on the spot by Jesus Christ.

            Even though Mary was healed in the first episode of the first season, I was not a fan of “The Chosen” right away. I told a few of my friends about my experience watching this episode. They told me that it is just one episode, I should watch that episode again, and I should watch some of the other episodes of the other seasons. This is exactly what I did. When I watched the first episode of the first season again, I liked it more, mainly because I feel like I had a better understanding of what took place in several of the scenes. After this, I continued watching the remaining episodes of the first season. Then, I moved onto season two. Then, I move on to season three. Currently, season four is in production as I write this blog entry. I have watched each episode of all three seasons at least two times. There are some scenes (Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus has a one-on-one meeting with Nicodemus, Jesus reading the Isaiah scrolls in the temple, Jesus conversing with His apostles about their mission to preach God’s word and heal the sick, Jesus giving His sermon on the mountainside, Jesus healing a number of different people who are sick) that are my favorites. Before season four is released, I will watch many of the episodes of all three seasons that I have watched already.

            Notice in the previous paragraph that my favorite scenes all involve Jesus. This is what “The Chosen” is mainly about for me. It is an opportunity for me to learn more about Jesus Christ, what He teaches, and what He did to reach out and help others during His three-year ministry. Please take the opportunity to check out “The Chosen.” If you do not like an episode or two, then give it a few more tries. I am hooked on “The Chosen.” I will continue to watch all the episodes of seasons one, two and three. I am so looking forward to season four already! What is cooler than cool is that the production crew’s goal is to have seven total seasons. Wow! The information below can help you with beginning your journey of watching episodes of “The Chosen.” It may change your life in a positive way just like it has done for me!
