As Jesus’ ministry grew, more and more people wanted to hear and be healed by this man claiming to be the Messiah. Some were eager; others were critical and reluctant. All, by encountering Jesus, were forever changed. Follow along with Jesus’ disciples as they witness miraculous healings, confrontations with the religious establishment, growing concern among Roman officials over Jesus’ popularity, and, most of all, love personified. Based on the acclaimed TV series, The Chosen, the most amazing story ever told—the life of Jesus—gets a fresh, new telling from author Jerry B. Jenkins.
The Chosen: Come and See does much more than reflect the show. It also takes us into the backstory, thoughts, and motivations of key characters like Simon (who will later be called Peter), Matthew, Philip, Mary Magdalene, Simon the Zealot, and others. It helps us see them even more as very real, very human, and very much like us.
