Michael Foust sits down with Rabbi Jason Sobel about his role as a consultant on 'The Chosen.'

An author and leader within the Messianic Jewish movement says he converted from Judaism to Christianity after a friend helped open his eyes to Old Testament passages that prophesied the coming of Christ.

Rabbi Jason Sobel, the author of Mysteries of the Messiah and multiple other books, told Christian Headlines he grew up in a Jewish home in the New York area but didn’t examine the Messianic prophecies until he was an adult.

Sobel is well-known in the Messianic Jewish movement and serves as a consultant for the hit television series 'The Chosen.' He is the host of the TBN series 'The Chosen Unveiled.'

His conversion, he said, began with a general dissatisfaction with life.
