‘God Is Sowing Seeds for a Fertile Revival,’ Says Actor Who Plays Jesus in ‘The Chosen’

by | Dec 28, 2021 | Culture

Walking along Paris’ famed Champs-Élysées this week, actor Jonathan Roumie, who plays Jesus in the television series The Chosen, tells CBN News that he’s humbled by how God is using the show to touch millions of people around the world.

“Do you often pinch yourself realizing the magnitude of the role that you are playing and how well the show has done?” CBN News asked.

“I don’t know if I pinch myself, I’m more ‘bow my head to the ground’ because I never feel that I’m worthy of the things that are happening as a result,” Roumie replied.

Three years after its premiere episode, the series now hits television screens for the first time across France airing on one of this country’s top TV channels.

“To be on a major network is a first,” said Katherine Warnock, one of the show’s producers. “We love our platform; we love having a free app that’s available to the whole world, but to be embraced by Canal + has been such an honor.”

Roumie and cast members joined 500 people for a showing of The Chosen at a Paris movie theater ahead of next week’s broadcast, many watching it for the first time.

“The intimacy between the disciples and Jesus, I like that very much,” said one attendee.

“It was different from other films about Jesus, it was just fantastic, I can say,” said another.
