Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re joined by Dallas Jenkins, creator and writer/director/producer of “The Chosen,” the first multi-season show on the life of Jesus. We talk about his career in filmmaking and how a career failure led to an important lesson that changed his life. He shares why he created the show and why it seems to resonate so deeply with people. Then, we discuss how much work truly goes into writing a show that uses the Bible as its source. The goal, for Dallas, is to ask, “What is biblically plausible?” as he gets insight from biblical, historical, and cultural scholars to craft the characters. We discuss criticism of the show, much of which has centered around skepticism about LDS involvement in the show’s distribution. And ultimately Dallas reminds us that while “The Chosen” is based on the Bible and the life of Jesus and his disciples, it doesn’t claim to be the Bible, as only the Bible itself is the true authority. You can watch the third season of “The Chosen” on the Chosen app.
