    My wife and I both enjoyed Season 1 but unusually have felt uncomfortable with watching Season 2...we have watched only the first episode.
    We knew there was artistic license and didn't want to be legalistic but focus on the positive parts.

    Ayway have just recently come across comments by Dallas Jenkins director who is involving Mormon friends in the show as it is being filmed in Utah.

    He basically said that we all...Christians and Mormons follow the same Jesus..(that is serious error). He has also said some other erroneous things

    Now I am concerned

    This is from a LDS person helping and he uses the Book of Mormon to justify support of this TV series

    Dallas is confused from these comments...

    All In | E90: Dallas Jenkins: Behind the Scenes of “The Chosen” | LDS Living

    So "The Chosen" has been, for me, a desperate attempt, and an obsessive attempt, to introduce people to the authentic Jesus of Nazareth. And in whatever way I'm doing that through the show, by using some of the people around him and telling their stories, through our devotional book, all of these, my wife and I are obsessed with "The Chosen" being a vehicle for people to be introduced to the authentic Jesus. And my LDS brothers and sisters who disagree with me on many things theologically, most of which—almost all of which—took place after Jesus was here, they have the same passion that I do for this show. In fact, members of the LDS faith are as responsible or more for getting this show out into people in every country of the world as anyone else. So even if you are listening to this right now as an evangelical and are horrified to hear me say some of these things, consider that even if you disagree, even if you think that, "No, it's two different Jesus's, and they worship two different Saviors, and what you're saying is wrong." Fine, believe what you will. I'm not gonna have these arguments with you. However, consider that if you love the show, and you believe the show is an accurate representation of Jesus of Nazareth, and you believe the show is an accurate representation of your Savior, and is having a positive influence all over the world, be assured that everyone who's working on this show who happens to be LDS feels the exact same way, and is also obsessed with getting this show out to everyone in the world. So I'm not sure quite why that would be controversial. The arguments that we can have about theology can still be had, and we've had that.
    The Harmons, who own VidAngel, and I have had plenty of discussions and explored each other's experiences and faith, and it's been a wonderful experience. I've learned a lot that I didn't know before, and I've also had affirmed some things that I did know before and thought, "Yeah, that's why we disagree." But we are both sleeping on the floor, oftentimes on our knees, for this show and for the portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth, and on that we agree. So I'm going to die on the hill of defending my LDS friends from those who say—I mean, I don't mind being attacked myself and I can get attacked every day for this show for the fact that we don't always use scripture in the show or whatever, but I don't like it when my friends get attacked. So that's why I tend to be pretty defensive of my friends, even if not always defensive of the theology on which we sometimes disagree. So that's a very long answer to your question, but the reason I'm giving it is because I know that nuance is required in these matters, because it's so easy to take things out of context, and we live in a in a "cancel culture" right now, but the good news is, I don't really care because I can't be cancelled unless I cancel myself. So I'm totally fine with it. But I'm happy to say, "Yeah, we disagree on some things, but I'm going to die on the hill of, we love the same Jesus, and we want the same Jesus known to the world."

    Wow

    I have watched them carefully but didn't see any mormon theology in it. Guess I will have to search around.

    His father is Jerry Jenkins who co-authored the Left Behind series.

    Here is a statement from Dallas:

    I hadn't seen any mormon theology but that Dallas is getting mormons to impart into the story is concerning and how he says they are brothers in the faith and we follow the same Jesus
