The Patrick Madrid Show: June 20, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick examines the widespread appeal and the creative liberties taken by the popular series “The Chosen.” While he acknowledges the exceptional acting and the relatable portrayal of Jesus by Jonathan Roumie, Patrick voices his concerns about certain artistic decisions, particularly in the portrayal of biblical characters and events. He explores whether it’s appropriate for directors to deviate from the New Testament’s gospel accounts, citing examples like the show’s depiction of a fabricated plot twist involving the apostle Thomas and his fiancée, Rama. Patrick engages with callers to discuss the impact of these deviations and the challenges of balancing artistic license with scriptural fidelity.
