In late, May, early June, Dallas Jenkins and The Chosen were embroiled over a controversy on how The Chosen had pride flags on set in celebration of sodomy in a blatant display of irreverence towards the source material that loosely inspires the show. Last week, Dallas Jenkins told fans that he would not be depicting the Transfiguration in the Bible on The Chosen.
The lack of this event is a major deviation from Scripture and the event not happening would be yet another biblically implausible event in the series.

Dallas Jenkins implies that the Transfiguration is an unimportant scene in the story he’s trying to tell. As the Transfiguration is one of the most profound miracles in the New Testament and a miracle in which the disciples of Jesus, Peter, James, and John interact with. As The Chosen is a series focusing on the disciples, albeit some invented ones, this miracle is a pivotal opportunity to depict character development.
So why wouldn’t the Transfiguration be part of The Chosen? One answer is that Dallas Jenkins is a wolf who has no interest in biblical accuracy. The other answer is that the Transfiguration is too expensive to depict because of special effects. It’s almost as though The Chosen is not some cash cow, almost.
