Have you watched "The Chosen" yet? We have watched the series once, were inspired to "pay it forward" so they can make Season 2, and are half way through watching it for the second time. We are finding this second viewing even better as we have figured out who the characters are and what the story is about in each of the 8 videos. Each one is excellent but the series seems to get better (if that is possible) as you continue watching! Most Bible movies do not inspire me. I even almost dread watching them because of unanointed stories and uninspired acting but this series is exceptional! If you don't come away wanting to know more about the stories and the characters they portray, I will be surprised. It is available free but you must download an app to watch it. Here is a link if you want to begin.
As you open the app, you will see over 10,000,000 people have already watched it--all through word of mouth! What a novel concept!
A funny story of how word of mouth works: I don't often go to chiropractors but was having trouble with my neck. Someone recommended one in the town of Robinson which is 30 miles away. In the process of one of my adjustments, he mentioned "The Chosen" and highly recommended it. I came home, looked it up, realized I needed an attachment to hook my iPad to our big screen, purchased it at Walmart and invited friends to watch it with us the next evening. We watched 3 of the 8 and thought they were wonderful so we agreed to meet again the next night to watch more in the series.
Fast forward a couple of weeks. I was getting my hair done by the ex-daughter-in-law of one of those who watched it with us. She said Cindy had recommended it to them and they were loving it. She said her husband had been to the chiropractor last week and recommended it to him. He said they had already watched it and loved it also. Unbeknownst to them it was the same chiropractor who told me, who told Cindy, who told Chastity, and then they told the chiropractor--who had no idea I knew them so didn't realize he was the reason they were watching it. Amazing how effective word of mouth is!
Check it out. You won't be disappointed.
