Dallas Jenkins defense ‘The Chosen’ plot twist claiming ‘Jesus does allow suffering’

By Around the Web

(CROSSWALK) – The creator and director of The Chosen is defending a Season 4 plot twist that has sparked pushback from some fans, saying in a live stream this week it was included in the series to convey a biblical truth: “Jesus does allow suffering.” (Warning: Spoilers ahead.) 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.
