What do The Beatitudes teach us? Season 2 of The Chosen takes us on a journey with Jesus as he prepares himself and his disciples for the Sermon on the Mount. Each step (episode) illumines the simple and deeper meaning of the kingdom of God.  The seeker and the doubter, the confused and the fearful find new meaning in their life’s travels through the experience of walking with Jesus.

The Chosen is a television series about the life of Jesus. For the next eight weeks or so, we will examine the calling of the disciples and their experiences. The director and writers have developed a backstory that helps to shed light on the culture and daily life of the people living at the time of Jesus’ ministry. Together they will bring to life the lives of the disciples, the character of Jesus, and what it means to be His. Each Adult Christian Education session works in tandem with an episode from the show, bringing the Old and New Testaments to life in a fresh way.
