Dr. Michael Barber and Dr. Scott Hefelfinger discuss the last episode of Season 3 of The Chosen. In this episode, they consider the scriptural and Jewish tradition of the queen mother, The Chosen's depiction of the Pharisees, and the Catholic understanding of the Eucharist.
1. Scripture and Jewish tradition present the idea of the queen mother, who intercedes to the king on behalf of the subjects. How does Mary ultimately fulfill this role? Ask for her intercession in your life.
2. The multiplication of loaves is a eucharistic miracle providing spiritual and material food. How do you understand the Eucharist? Do you believe it is truly Jesus' Body and Blood that nourishes you materially and spiritually? Talk with Jesus about what arises in response to these questions.
3. The apostles ask Jesus to increase their faith. Where is your own faith lacking? Ask Jesus to increase your faith in these areas.
