The first two episodes of the third season of The Chosen Season 3 are now available to watch in cinemas and will soon be available online, but who can forget the 2021 Christmas Special which captured the nativity in a festive yet profoundly life-changing way.
People must know
‘People must know!’ This is the far-reaching challenge from the epic TV series, The Chosen which shares the life of Jesus through the eyes of His disciples. This is particularly apt at Christmas, when many are celebrating a holiday without even knowing the Christ of Christmas.
In an episode entitled The Messengers The Chosen tells the Christmas story in a way you have never heard before. Director Dallas Jenkins has masterfully juxtapositioned the Biblical account of Mary and Joseph with reflections from Mary three decades later as the fledgling church withstands grave persecution.
“People must know!” Mary, the Mother of Jesus tells Mary Magdalene in this dramatised version of the nativity. She is remembering the first Christmas and speaking years later when Christianity is being bitterly persecuted. This offers so much hope to believers today who have to practice their faith in secret. However, we know that there is no price too high to share the Gospel and this call has certainly become the rallying cry of The Chosen.
It is now up to us, today’s Church of Jesus Christ, to share His message boldly and The Messengers is an ideal way to share a message of peace and goodwill to all people.
Christmas with The Chosen, The Messengers
The Messengers first aired in December 2021 as part of a two-hour special holiday broadcast, Christmas with the Chosen. The first part is an inspirational carol concert followed by the Christmas story as depicted by The Chosen Actors You will love the outstanding music and vocal talent of the concert. There are also four thought-provoking monologues highlighting the Hebrew names of God which include Jehovah Shalom, the Lord our Peace.
During the concert, actor Luke Dimyan shares this challenge: “For we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard… We are not alone anymore… Emmanuel, God with us. The messages we have received mean that we are not hearers only but doers and messengers of the Word, proclaiming the news to the four corners of the earth, inviting all to come and see. That the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. in Him was the life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. It never can and it never will. It’s not that people ought to know, people could know, people should know, but people must know the wait is over. WE ARE THE MESSENGERS NOW!”
