Yes, Brother Gilbert Joseph, I agree with your assessment, at least generally. I avoided the Nativity episode because I did not want to view any possible conflicts with Catholic teaching, e.g., Mary’s labor. I’m glad you expressed your opinion on this! However, without disclosing spoilers, including in season 2, I do think (so far) the holiness and divinity of Jesus are illustrated well, e.g., in His sinlessness and miracles. It’s just that The Chosen focuses significantly on the humanity of Christ, e.g., His sense of humor, fantastic rapport with children, etc. I also very much like how Jesus is portrayed in The Passion of the Christ!
