In the premiere of Season 2 of Catholic Commentary on The Chosen, Dr. Michael Barber and Dr. Scott Hefelfinger explore “Thunder,” the first episode of Season 2 of The Chosen. In this discussion, they comment on how The Chosen weaves together the different Gospel accounts, the composition of the Gospels, and the relationship between John and Mary.
1. How does the episode's depiction of the composition of the Gospel of John influence the way you read it? Does it add to or detract from your interpretation of his Gospel?
Mary comments on the way John loves to talk about how Jesus loved him. 2. Do you see yourself as beloved by the Lord? Talk with Jesus about what arises in response to this question.
3. Jesus calls John and James the "Sons of Thunder". The Chosen grounds this title in their zeal for righteousness. How can you emulate their zeal for the Gospel in your life?
