The Chosen Season 4 ep 4-6 - NR

We’re in the aftermath of the death of Ramah. The disciples, especially Thomas, are trying to make sense of what happened. It’s something so universal: What happens to your faith after you lose someone you love? When Ramah was killed, I was shocked by the development. Dallas Jenkins mentioned it was something of a precursor to Thomas becoming “Doubting Thomas.” There’s another element that I’ve also picked up on watching Thomas and the other disciples mourn her death: The death of Ramah puts Thomas in the spot of asking how God can allow bad things to happen to good people. But it also brings another perhaps more difficult question, especially as what happens with Lazarus is taken into consideration. Why does God bless others with a specific blessing we want, but not us sometimes? The show does an excellent job of putting the audience in Thomas’ shoes and in turn sparks additional empathy for him.
