‘The Chosen’ Season 3 Actor Noah James Shares the Weight of Playing a Martyr

The long awaited moment is finally here. The first two episodes of “The Chosen” Season Three hits theatres on Nov. 18th. The theme for this season is out of Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Creator of “The Chosen” Dallas Jenkins says the latest season will pick back up where Season Two left off, “With Jesus delivering the most famous sermon in history. What follows are the consequences of living out His teachings,” Jenkins says.

Charisma News sat down with “The Chosen” actor Noah James to talk about the upcoming season and what you need to be watching out for. James encourages viewers that this will be the season that they will watch the disciples move forward into becoming the apostles. He also says this season the audience will be introduced to Judas among other new biblical characters.

“I connected with Andrew right away,” James says of his character in the show. Playing the life of a biblical figure that gave their life for Jesus is no easy task. He says there is weight that he carries which has tremendously impacted his life. The show has touched millions of people around the world as they see what the life of Jesus and the disciples really looked like.

“When I see some of the images or paintings of some of the disciples, for instance being martyred, that affects me and it affects all of us quite deeply,” James says.

The show is paving the way for new and unique ways to reach people. The first two episodes are out in theatres Nov. 18th which provides an opportunity for people who may not be interested in Christian content to get a glimpse into the gospel. Tune into the full interview to hear all of the sneak peeks that are coming to Season Three of “The Chosen.”
