THE CHOSEN: The Shepherd

What You Need To Know:

THE CHOSEN is a multi-season series about Jesus. The series begins with the Nativity. Entitled, “The Shepherd,” the first episode focuses on a shepherd who’s crippled who’s raising a little lamb with a blemish. When he brings his lamb to the temple for the offering, the priest rejects the lamb. The shepherd enters a synagogue to hear the stories about the coming Messiah. When the rabbi sees that he has a wound, he’s kicked out. The shepherd returns to Bethlehem, and other shepherds force him to eat alone. However, an angel appears announcing the birth of the Messiah. He hurries to Bethlehem to see the baby Jesus and gets more than he expected when he arrives.

“The Shepherd” is a beautifully made, dramatic short movie about the birth of Jesus. It has powerful jeopardy and good plot points. The costumes, set design and acting are all superior. It’s a perfect short movie to introduce people, especially children and grandchildren, to the story of Jesus. MOVIEGUIDE® is grateful that Dallas Jenkins, one of our favorite directors, has decided to direct this series.

More Detail:

THE CHOSEN is the first multi-season series about the life of Jesus. The series begins, of course, with the Nativity or birth of Jesus Christ. Entitled, “The Shepherd,” the first episode focuses on a shepherd who’s crippled who’s raising a little lamb with a blemish. When he brings his lamb to the temple for the offering, the priest mockingly rejects him and the lamb. The shepherd enters a synagogue because he loves to hear the stories of the prophets about the coming Messiah. When the rabbi sees that he has a wound from falling down, he’s kicked out.

The shepherd returns to Bethlehem to raise his sheep, and other shepherds force him to eat alone. However, an angel appears announcing the birth of the Messiah that the shepherd’s been looking forward to all his life. He hurries to Bethlehem to see the baby Jesus and gets more than he expected when he arrives.

“The Shepherd” is a beautifully made, dramatic short movie about the birth of Jesus. It has powerful jeopardy and good plot points. The costumes, set design and acting are all superior. It’s a perfect short movie to introduce people, especially children and grandchildren, to the story of Jesus.
