The Chosen is a TV series based on the true stories of the gospels of Jesus Christ. There are 8 episodes in Season 1, and we will watch them together over the summer. You don't need to watch in order, and it's OK to join at any time.
A charismatic fisherman drowning in debt. A troubled woman wrestling with real demons. A young tax collector ostracized by society. A religious leader questioning his faith tradition. Join us as we watch episodes together and discuss the director's view of the gospels.
