All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she believed in a woman's right to choose. Until the day she saw something that changed everything.
In 1944, in Brooklyn, two Jewish kids become friends. One is from a very conservative family, and the other is more liberal. The issues of importance of tradition, parental expectations and the formation of Israel cause constant friction.
When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.
Powerful! It gets all the feels right without diverting from the true message of scripture.
A warning needs to be added, do not watch this without a tissue box nearby! I've watched the first four episodes multiple times now... and it still moves me. The first episode is especially powerful. The Chosen gives you the powerful experience of what an encounter with the walking Jesus Christ would be like if you were there. But the most important thing about The Chosen is that with the creative freedom it takes...it does try to add modern political agendas into its storyline. It stays true to the spirit of the Gospel scripture.
Must see!! Can't wait for the next episodes!
