Dallas Jenkins on Why ‘The Chosen’ Is Not ‘Adding to Scripture’

“I as an evangelical believer in God’s Word…have all final responsibility for the content of the show, and that’s something that we would never compromise on.”

“My operating principle is the Jesus of the Gospels is who we’re presenting. And there are other faiths, LDS or Catholic or whatever, that might have differences of opinion with us or different approaches or different foundational beliefs about who Jesus was. But most of those, in fact, nearly all of them, take place before Jesus was on earth or after Jesus was on earth. The events of the Gospels, for the most part, we tend to agree on.”
