Good news today from the man at the helm of The Chosen. Dallas Jenkins, the creator/director of this faith-based drama about Jesus' earthly ministry, announced that episode four of the second season will release next Tuesday.

In a note to investors, Jenkins mentions that he's currently in Los Angeles - which is where they edit the show - and "just completed my work on episode 4," though he still has "got a few little tweaks to make in visual effects." The 45-year-old Washington State native and his team take care of that at the post-production facilities of Kappa Studios, a Christian company that is the outfit behind faith-based movies like Selfie Dad and Grace Unplugged.


Since season two of The Chosen consists of eight episodes, this next one - entitled The Perfect Opportunity - marks the halfway point. And Jenkins is evidently very enthusiastic about the way it turned out, because he really raises expectations for viewers in his note, announcing it with quite the superlative.

"This is easily our biggest episode ever, and I can't wait to show it to you."

Wow, it must be something else. Though the director does not give away any details, the picture above from a related social media post would seem to indicate that the Jesus character, played by Jonathan Roumie, will heal the paralytic at the Pool of Bethesda, a well-known miracle recorded in chapter five of the New Testament book of John. The episode debuts next Tuesday, May 11th, at 9:00 PM EDT (GMT -4) and you can watch it for free either via the show's app - Android / Apple - or on its website.
