Multitudes Come to Christ in Episode 8 of "The Chosen"

Season two of the streaming series reaches a climax with one of the most memorable moments of Jesus' earthly ministry.

With The Sermon on the Mount serving as the focal point, The Chosen caps off its second season tomorrow night (July 11th) with episode number eight. As is clear from a trailer and social media posts, lead actor Jonathan Roumie will deliver the famous address to an enormous audience...literally thousands of extras took part in the scene.

Though Christian Film Blog was able to screen the episode early, we will refrain from giving away anything beyond what is already being advertised. In addition to the aforementioned details, the Apostle Peter, played by Shahar Isaac, will be reunited with his wife, Eden, portrayed by actress Lara Silva, as you can see in a digital poster from the program's social media accounts.


But by focusing on one of the biggest moments of Jesus' ministry, show creator/director Dallas Jenkins and his fellow writers are finally thrusting the character fully into the open, where he will face more direct confrontation from the Jewish religious authorities, which the trailer points to and is a clear reflection of Scriptural reality. That will also no doubt become a regular feature of the remaining five seasons of the program.


But that's getting ahead of ourselves because the finale of season two is still to come. It releases Sunday night at 8:00 PM EDT (GMT -4) and can be watched for free in all the usual places: the show's app - Android / Apple - its website and YouTube Channel. Jenkins will host the livestream event and it will also feature a visit from Montana-based pastor Levi Lusko and a chat with an as yet unnamed cast member.

All the actors are good in this Chosen Film but the ones who portrayed Jesus, Nicodemus, Quintus (who is the lead Roman Soldier) and the paralyzed man which Jesus healed by the Pool were exceptionally excellent performances. Their acting was memorable and very credible.


Watching and funding the Chosen ( in my view) is highly recommended, as long as people realize it is a Bible based film and Not a word for word adaptation as to avoid confusion about that. Otherwise well done if one keeps in mind some parts are from the creative genius of Dallas Jenkins and other parts are in the actual Gospel.

Definitely some talented actors in this show, with Jonathan Roumie (Jesus) and Erick Avari (Nicodemus) being foremost among them from where we sit. Roumie has a very powerful testimony, by the way, which we reported on earlier: "The Chosen" Star Jonathan Roumie Surrenders to God and a Miracle Follows (christianfilmblog.com)

This actor portraying Jesus is excellent and I love his performance but according to all four Gospels= Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Jesus went about healing and teaching multitudes of people who followed Him. His message and His Plan of Salvation along with the Kingdom of Heaven was NOT just a one time major event.
