Dallas Jenkins Defends ‘The Chosen’ Season 4 Shocking Plot Twist

The Chosen Director Dallas Jenkins has defended a plot twist in season four of his hit Jesus show, featuring the Savior choosing not to heal the Apostle Thomas’s fiancee after a Roman official straight up murders her in front of them. According to Crosswalk Headlines:

The plot twist occurs at the end of Season 4, Episode 3, when a Roman official, Quintus, grows irate at his inability to capture Jesus in a large crowd and begins swinging a sword. In his anger, Quintus stabs Ramah, the fiancee of the apostle Thomas in the series. Quintus then flees the scene. 

With Ramah lying on the ground, bleeding and dying, she urges Thomas to “stay with” Jesus. Thomas then pleads with Jesus to raise her back to life. A tearful Jesus expresses remorse but responds, “It is not her time. I love you, Thomas. He loves you. I’m so sorry.” Moments later, the credits appear on the screen.

We hesitate to think how many people will believe this story is somewhere in the scriptures. Thomas and Ramah’s relationship was frequently featured in The Chosen, and it will almost certainly play a crucial role in why Thomas is given the moniker “Doubting Thomas” following Jesus’ resurrection.

Responding to criticism and comments in his post-episode livestream, Jenkins offered:

“This was not something that we just did to be interesting or to be shocking. This is something that we have thought about and planned since season 1, actually — since we were first coming up with all seven seasons of the show. What you just saw is not something that took place in Scripture … but the truth, the spiritual truth of what we portrayed just now, is extremely important.”

  2. There are so many things like this inside and outside of the Church, which are, in one way or another, testing Christians, especially their discernment. All of this has, of course, revealed a stunning lack of discernment.

    This is similar to, but not exactly like:

    “…you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
    Deuteronomy 13:3

    1. not sure what you are talking about but discernment has nothing to do with trite entertainment that embodies one heresy after another. Nothing in the Chosen is representative of Christianity.

      1. You’re not sure about the verse, discernment, etc?

        Discernment has EVERYTHING to do with detecting, avoiding, and reproving heresy (e.g. what is not “representative of Christianity”). Nor sure how they could be more obvious.

  3. Adding to the Word of God by fictionalilizing the Gospel accounts of Christ is a very dangerous Sin.

  4. I grew suspicious of the “Jeff Bezos’ Story of Jesus” early in the first season. There was just way too much romanticism and focus on what Biblically was only the ancillary discipleship of Mary Magdalene. I quit watching after maybe the 4th episode and have never been inclined to pick it back up. And now, as the writers run out of historical record, they have fully confirmed that I discerned correctly. This show is a heresy trap.
