Last year, my sons and I watched the first season TV series called “The Chosen.” It's basically the story of Jesus and his “chosen” disciples told in a very, very compelling manner.

Imagine this…

A charismatic fisherman struggling with debt.

A troubled woman wrestling with demons.

A gifted accountant ostracized from his family and people.

In “The Chosen,” you witness how Jesus reaches each of these and more as He works His first miracles and embarks on His ministry to change the world. You see Him through the eyes of those who knew Him, in a very joyful, sometimes funny, and personable way.

While speaking with a friend about “The Chosen,” he commented to me that he knew the creator of the project, and the guy actually happened to be into fitness, recovery, mind-body connection, biohacking, and many of the healthy living subjects we often discuss on this show. So he made the introduction to the man himself: Dallas Jenkins.

Dallas Jenkins, son of celebrated Left Behind author Jerry Jenkins, first produced the independent feature “Hometown Legend” at the age of 25 and shepherded it to distribution by Warner Brothers. In the nearly 20 years since, he has directed and produced over a dozen feature and short films for companies such as Universal, Lionsgate, Pureflix, Hallmark Channel, and Amazon. He is now the creator of the largest crowd-funded media project of all time, The Chosen.

  4. Josh StPierre says:

    Great episode! I jumped on to see the link to the band stretch exercise that you talked about doing every day for your posture, but the link takes me to a BFR band retail site on Amazon. If you could upload that link on the overhead band exercise, that would be fantastic! Thank you so much.
