‘The Chosen’ TV Series Brings Jesus’ Story to Netflix

Looking to escape the frigid temperatures and enjoy a new show on Netflix? “The Chosen,” a show that depicts the life and works of Jesus Christ, is now available on the popular streaming service.

The first season of “The Chosen”, which consists of 8 episodes, arrived on Netflix in late November, according to a post on the show’s social media account. 

The trailer for the show’s first season begins with Jesus telling a discouraged and disheartened Simon Peter to cast his net once more into the sea. Simon Peter voices his reluctance, saying “we’ve been doing this all night. Nothing.” However, as the trailer shows, Simon Peter eventually relents and does as Jesus commands. 

The trailer then begins to pick up the pace, showing several quick scenes of Roman soldiers on horseback as well as one drawing his sword on a townsperson. 

Next, we’re introduced to the “great” Nicodemus, as a Roman soldier refers to him. Nicodemus sternly informs the soldier that he serves “only God.” That same soldier answers by stating, “Yes, yes so do your enemies. Rogue preachers in the wilderness raving about coming messiah.”

The trailer then shifts back to Simon Peter informing a woman about his dire circumstances, saying that “if I don’t catch a ton of fish or get some help somehow, they’ll arrest me.”

Next, we’re shown Jesus as he responds to a frightened woman, who is running away from him, and tells her to “fear not” because he has “called her by name.”

The trailer quickly shifts back to Nicodemus informing that same woman who had an interaction with Jesus that what she had experienced was a miracle. 

As the trailer nears its conclusion, we hear Simon Peter ask Jesus, “what do you want from me?” Jesus, looking to make Simon Peter a fisher of men, tells him to “follow me.” 

In the trailer’s closing moments, Nicodemus asks a woman if she would remember Jesus if she were to see him again. She answers empathically that “I will know him for the rest of my life.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
