The Chosen is a television drama based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. It is the first multi-season series about the life of Jesus, and season one was the highest crowd-funded TV series or film project of all time. The series' creators stated that they had hoped to distinguish the new series from previous portrayals of Jesus by crafting a multi-season, episode-based story. The series portrays Jesus "through the eyes of those who met him, "but also to show him in a way that is more "personal, intimate, immediate."
The first season introduces Jesus and the calling of his initial disciples. The second season focuses on the beginning of his public ministry and what happens as word of his ministry begins to spread. Other seasons are yet to be developed as funds are available.
Great Themes of the Bible
In this program we will explore central themes in the Bible as they are presented first in the Old Testament and then developed in the New Testament. Through themes such as creation, the exodus from Egypt, covenant, biblical theology of history, and wisdom the Bible reveals who God is and what God wants for us and for the whole world.
This program will allow participants not only to gain a greater understanding of the events and themes of the Christian Bible, but also a greater appreciation of the theological and spiritual depth of both Testaments, whose message continues to challenge and encourage Christians today.
Led by Br. John Barker, OFM, PhD in the Bible. Program meets most Wednesday mornings, 9:00-10:30, beginning September 29.
Please call 248-356-8787 and let them know if you are interested. Bring your Bible!
