An intimate and rare exploration of the world of Messianic Judaism and Jews who believe in Jesus. Filmed in Canada for a period of five years, the film follows members of the city of David congregation from Toronto, Canada as they try to carve out a life for themselves in their Jewish community, by following what many Jews believe to be Christian Dogma. The Chosen People reveals the most controversial group in the Jewish community and their crusade to have the North American Jewish community accept Jesus (Yeshua) of Nazareth as the Jewish Messiah.
