Join Dr. Michael Barber and Dr. Scott Hefelfinger as they continue discussing Season 3 of The Chosen. In this episode, they unpack the historical background of the Decapolis, the depiction of the apostles struggling to understand Jesus' words, and the tradition of John as the beloved disciple.
1. The disciples struggle to understand Jesus' words. When you do not understand his teachings, do you wrestle with his words?
2. John is presented as the beloved disciple, but throughout the Gospel, the identity is intentionally left ambiguous to encourage you to see yourself in this role. Do you believe that you are beloved by God? Talk with the Lord about what arises.
3. The disciples are depicted as discussing their strategies for evangelization. What strategies do you use to share the Gospel?
