Our Chosen watch group is not currently meeting at this time. We watched seasons 1 & 2 in the summer and fall of 2022. We may gather back together to watch season 3 if there is enough interest.
We are excited to share that FORMED has produced original Catholic commentary on each episode of The Chosen Season One with professors from the Augustine Institute Graduate School. You can watch Season 1 on FORMED HERE.
The Chosen group study at St. Patrick has the potential to give you a better understanding of Jesus as God and man. The accompanying scriptural references on each Group Guide can help you set the foundation of truth. Then, as we watch the episode, what was happening ‘in-between-the-lines” may be brought to life in a deeper, entertaining, and powerful way. After watching each episode, we will review some of the reflection questions to help us digest what we watched.
The Chosen is a fresh look at the Gospels for those who have been reading the stories for years or for those who are just curious about who Jesus is and was. Our hope is that as we encounter the characters in The Chosen, we are able to relate to them, leading us into a closer relationship with Jesus.
The Chosen is the first, multi-season, television series about the life of Christ, as witnessed through the eyes of those He impacted. Directed by Dallas Jenkins and distributed by VidAngel Studios, The Chosen has grown to become the largest crowdfunded TV series of all time.
No matter where you are at in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you!
Imagine you could see the life of Jesus through the eyes of the people that walked on Earth with him – the disciples, Mary his mother, the Pharisees, the children, those he healed. What would that look like? Now you can experience it!
The Chosen stays faithful to the Gospels and at the same time tells us a story that is in between the lines of scripture. This series brings to life those people that are mentioned in the Bible, using the historical context of life at the time of Jesus. The series does not contradict scripture, but instead puts life around it so that we as viewers can imagine, “What was life like with Jesus?” It really could have been this way.
We believe that as you encounter the characters in The Chosen each week, you will build a new curiosity about the life of Jesus and those that followed him when he walked the earth.
Here you can find materials from the show creators which helps with the making of future episodes since the project is crowdfunded.
