Like millions of other viewers, I have been enjoying The Chosen – a new film series on the life and ministry of Jesus. It is called The Chosen because it is focused not on Jesus but on the twelve disciples, the ones “chosen” by Jesus to follow him. It is a fascinating character study and makes each of the personalities come more alive in the process.
I have to admit that, at first, I wasn’t sure I liked how the writers developed Peter’s character. They had him collaborating with the Romans against his own people (which is not very likely) but, as time goes on, I have to admit that, details aside, they nailed his character exactly right.
