Jonathan Roumie, known for playing Jesus Christ in “The Chosen,” expressed a deep sense of mission and purpose in portraying the role, attributing it to a gift from God.

He emphasized the intensity and maturity of the upcoming season, particularly as the series approaches the crucifixion of Jesus.

Roumie highlighted the hope that the show will encourage viewers to reflect on their faith and resilience in the face of adversity, emphasizing themes of compassion and leadership.

“There’s — for me, there’s a sense of mission at what I’m doing and it happens to be in the form of entertainment,” Roumie said. “And that’s the gift that I was equipped with by God, I believe.”

“So, I’m just kind of following where he’s leading me,” he said. “And my entire life and career has led me to this point.”

The new season is “by far, the most intense and mature and challenging season” yet, he noted.

“Not just for me, but I think for everybody on the cast and crew,” Roumie said. “But I think what we created is going to be pretty beautiful.”

“I just had to really put it all to prayer and inform as much of my own humanity as was scripted in the page and hope that that kind of gets in the ballpark of what Jesus may have felt during these moments,” he added.

“If they’re surrendering to the idea of resisting, I think turning the other cheek is something that we really get out of season 4, and walking a mile in somebody else’s shoes while going the extra mile,” Roumie said.

“I think it’s contrarian to what [the disciples] would have normally expected, but I think it then builds this sense of compassion that they’re going to need for the rest of their fellow man as they go through all the trials that are going to be coming their way, as they mature in their leadership once Jesus is no longer with them,” he added. “They are now being taught the ground rules for how to become ministers and leaders of the faith and perpetuators of the faith.”

The fourth season will be released in theaters, with the first three episodes coming in February 2024.
