The Chosen Season 4 Episode1 &2 in Cinemas, One Weekend ONLY!

Rise up. Experience the next chapter in the groundbreaking series. In theaters February 1 for one weekend only. In Season 4 of The Chosen, the enemies of Jesus close in while His followers struggle to keep up, leaving him to carry the burden alone. Threatened by the reality of Jesus’ growing influence, religious leaders do the unthinkable – ally with their Roman oppressors. As the seeds of betrayal are planted and opposition to Jesus’ message turns violent, he’s left with no alternative but demand his followers rise up.

See the first 2 episodes of Season 4 at once in select cinemas from February 1 to February 5. Find cinemas and book tickets at thechosentv.com.au.
