The Chosen Pt 3: Dallas Jenkins

The True Tunes Podcast

On this unexpected Part 3 of our exploration of the music behind the first episodic drama about the life and ministry of Jesus, we get to hear from Dallas Jenkins himself. Jenkins created "The Chosen" after a devastating failure as a filmmaker. He didn’t know if he’d ever get to make another project again. We’ll hear about how that failure prepared him to approach "The Chosen" with a certain punk spirit. Who is "The Chosen" for? Where is the harshest criticism coming from? Are there similarities between the way this – the most successful crowd-funded media project in history – is growing and the way Christian music detached from the mainstream, or is there something else going on here? And how has the careful use of music supported the storytelling all along? This “bonus episode” closes out our conversation about the music behind "The Chosen" by exploring some of the most challenging issues that face faith-based artists in the marketplace today, including some core questions about what it means to be "faith-based" in the first place. Full Show Notes are available at TrueTunes.com.  Special thanks to VisionTrust.org. Please consider joining us on the sponsorship journey today. Don't miss our conversations with the artists behind the score and songs of "The Chosen," Dan Haseltine and Matthew S. Nelson on Parts 1 and 2 of this series.

Ep 103 | Who Is the Real Jesus? | Dallas Jenkins | The Glenn Beck Podcast

The Glenn Beck Program

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller. And he’s telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible. Jenkins is the creator of “The Chosen,” a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God. Glenn and Dallas break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is and paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, “God with us,” now more than ever.

Dallas Jenkins and The Chosen: Getting to Know Jesus in a Whole New Way

Mint Arrow Messages

If you’re a Christian (and even if you’re not!) there’s a good chance you’ve heard people talk about the new TV series about Jesus called The Chosen. The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season series television show about Jesus Christ. It’s the #1 highest crowd-funded project of all-time at $10 million from over 19,000 people, and it has already been translated into 50 languages and counting. Today, I get to sit down with the director and creator of The Chosen, Dallas Jenkins, and ask him all about the inspiration, the behind-the-scenes magic, and the miracles that have taken place while filming, producing, and directing this show that has swept the world with a new passion for learning about the character of Christ. So many people like me have become super fans of this project because it’s giving us an entirely new perspective on what Jesus must really be like as a person, and this ignites our desire even more to know Jesus and understand His life as recorded in scripture. In this episode, you will hear: Tapping into Jesus as a human being How Dallas built up the characters to explore the context and the human element so these biblical moments are made even more impactful  Jesus’ unique relationship with women The profound, visceral, emotional experience that happens to the actors when they’re playing their roles The Chosen as a reminder to set aside the things that take us away from God (vices, addiction, pride, narcissism, and other things we’re not willing to give up yet) Total surrender comes after true brokenness How God is using the show to pierce through your heart The more you empty yourself, the more you can be filled by the replacement, which is Spirit How God’s impossible math works Why your job is not to feed the 5,000, but to be the best baker and the best fisherman Supporting Resources: The Chosen Series https://studios.vidangel.com/the-chosen The Chosen YouTube Channel  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBXOFnNTULFaAnj24PAeblg The Chosen Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/InsideTheChosen/ Subscribe and Review Have you subscribed to our podcast?
