  • 00:12:48.858 --> 00:12:50.893
  • THESE STORIES IN THEGOSPELS, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:12:50.893 --> 00:12:54.163
  • WHEN MARY MAGDALENE ISINTRODUCED TO US IN THE
  • 00:12:54.163 --> 00:12:56.799
  • GOSPELS, IT SAYS SHEHAD BEEN POSSESSED
  • 00:12:56.799 --> 00:12:59.602
  • BY 7 DEMONS.
  • 00:12:59.602 --> 00:13:00.736
  • WE KNOW THAT SHE WAS THEFIRST PERSON TO SEE JESUS
  • 00:13:00.736 --> 00:13:02.738
  • AFTER THE RESURRECTION,BUT OTHER THAN THAT WE
  • 00:13:02.738 --> 00:13:05.574
  • DON'T KNOW HER BEFORE.
  • 00:13:05.574 --> 00:13:07.576
  • WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TOOKPLACE BEFORE THEN.
  • 00:13:07.576 --> 00:13:09.478
  • SIMON PETER, WE KNOW ATON ABOUT HIM AFTER HE
  • 00:13:09.478 --> 00:13:11.380
  • MET JESUS.
  • 00:13:11.380 --> 00:13:12.514
  • WELL, YOU CAN IMAGINEWHAT HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:13:12.514 --> 00:13:13.816
  • LIKE BEFORE HE MET JESUS.
  • 00:13:13.816 --> 00:13:14.884
  • WE KNOW HE WAS MARRIEDBECAUSE IT MENTIONS HIS
  • 00:13:14.884 --> 00:13:16.518
  • MOTHER-IN-LAW SO WEEXPLORE THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:13:16.518 --> 00:13:18.420
  • AND SEEING THE CONTEXT OFWHO THESE PEOPLE WERE AND

  • JESUS WENT TO MARY,BECAUSE AS YOU SAID, WE
  • 00:19:00.562 --> 00:19:04.733
  • DON'T KNOW A LOT ABOUTTHE PRE-STORY OF THESE
  • 00:19:04.733 --> 00:19:07.769
  • FOLKS, YOU KNOW, ANDSO SHE'S OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:19:07.769 --> 00:19:12.274
  • CONSIDERING SUICIDE?
  • 00:19:12.274 --> 00:19:13.909
  • - YES.
  • 00:19:13.909 --> 00:19:15.377
  • - THE SETUP, IT LEAVESYOU THAT BUT IT GIVES YOU
  • 00:19:15.377 --> 00:19:17.813
  • A LITTLE BIT OF JUST KINDOF A DIVINE INTERRUPTION
  • 00:19:17.813 --> 00:19:19.982
  • WITH THE BIRD, AND THENFOLLOWING IT, AND THEN
  • 00:19:19.982 --> 00:19:23.118
  • ENDING BACK TO IT SEEMEDLIKE SHE HAD A DARKER
  • 00:19:23.118 --> 00:19:26.221
  • SIDE OF HER LIFE ANDGOING BACK TO THAT LIFE.
  • 00:19:26.221 --> 00:19:28.991
  • AND THEN JESUS JUST KINDOF APPEARS TO HER, AND
  • 00:19:28.991 --> 00:19:32.761
  • IT'S LIKE SO HOW DOESTHAT APPLY, DO YOU FEEL
  • 00:19:32.761 --> 00:19:36.932
  • LIKE, TO A NORMAL VIEWERWATCHING IT AND THE
  • 00:19:36.932 --> 00:19:40.002
  • WAY JESUS COMES TO US.
  • 00:19:40.002 --> 00:19:41.637
  • - THAT'S A GREATQUESTION. WE ARE--
  • 00:19:41.637 --> 00:19:43.138
  • THE WHOLE POINT OF THISSHOW IS WE BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:19:43.138 --> 00:19:45.340
  • IF YOU CAN SEE JESUSTHROUGH THE EYES OF THOSE
  • 00:19:45.340 --> 00:19:46.942
  • WHO ACTUALLY MET HIM, YOUCAN BE CHANGED AND
  • 00:19:46.942 --> 00:19:48.777
  • IMPACTED IN THE SAMEWAY THAT THEY WERE.
  • 00:19:48.777 --> 00:19:50.746
  • SO YOU WATCHING THECHOSEN MIGHT NOT BE DEMON
  • 00:19:50.746 --> 00:19:53.949
  • POSSESSED LIKE MARY WAS,YOU'RE NOT LIVING IN
  • 00:19:53.949 --> 00:19:56.184
  • FIRST CENTURY JERUSALEMOR FIRST CENTURY
  • 00:19:56.184 --> 00:19:59.221
  • CAPERNAUM LIKE MARY WAS,BUT YOU CAN IDENTIFY WITH
  • 00:19:59.221 --> 00:20:02.658
  • BEING OPPRESSED, WITHBEING CUT APART FROM
  • 00:20:02.658 --> 00:20:05.294
  • JESUS, WITH HAVINGA VICE OF SOME KIND.
  • 00:20:05.294 --> 00:20:08.930
  • AND SO WHEN JESUS SHOWSUP WHERE MARY'S AT, SHE
  • 00:20:08.930 --> 00:20:12.200
  • GOES TO A BAR, SHE GOESTO A PLACE OF ILL REPUTE,
  • 00:20:12.200 --> 00:20:15.604
  • SHE'S TRYING TO DROWN HERPAIN IN SUBSTANCES THAT
  • 00:20:15.604 --> 00:20:19.241
  • AREN'T RIGHT FOR HER, ANDTHE FIRST LINES WE HEAR
  • 00:20:19.241 --> 00:20:21.143
  • OUT OF JESUS' MOUTH WERETHAT'S NOT FOR YOU.
  • 00:20:21.143 --> 00:20:24.513
  • HE PUTS HIS HAND ON TOPOF HERS BECAUSE SHE'S
  • 00:20:24.513 --> 00:20:26.682
  • REACHING FOR ALCOHOL, ANDHE SAYS THAT'S NOT FOR YOU.
  • 00:20:26.682 --> 00:20:29.951
  • AND SHE OF COURSE, LIKEWE DO, TRIES TO GET AWAY
  • 00:20:29.951 --> 00:20:32.187
  • FROM HIM SOMETIMES.
  • 00:20:32.187 --> 00:20:33.355
  • WE SOMETIMES REJECT THEHELP THAT GOD AND CHRIST
  • 00:20:33.355 --> 00:20:35.590
  • ARE SO CLEARLY OFFERING US,AND SHE RUNS AWAY FROM
  • 00:20:35.590 --> 00:20:38.827
  • HIM, AND HE PURSUES HER.
  • 00:20:38.827 --> 00:20:40.362
  • AND THEN HE QUOTES ISAIAH43 WHERE HE SAYS I'VE
  • 00:20:40.362 --> 00:20:42.764
  • CALLED YOU BY NAME,YOU ARE MINE, AND HE
  • 00:20:42.764 --> 00:20:45.167
  • IDENTIFIES HER AS HIS.
  • 00:20:45.167 --> 00:20:46.635
  • HE CALLS HER BYHER REAL NAME.
  • 00:20:46.635 --> 00:20:48.070
  • HE REDEEMS HER.
  • 00:20:48.070 --> 00:20:49.438
  • AND THAT IS WHAT SO MANYLITERALLY MILLIONS OF
  • 00:20:49.438 --> 00:20:53.241
  • PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLDHAVE TOLD US IS THAT EVEN
  • 00:20:53.241 --> 00:20:55.844
  • JUST THAT SCENEALONE CHANGED THEIR LIFE
  • 00:20:55.844 --> 00:20:58.280
  • BECAUSE IT MADE THEMREALIZE THAT'S WHAT JESUS
  • 00:20:58.280 --> 00:21:00.782
  • IS DOING IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:21:00.782 --> 00:21:02.050
  • HE COMES TO ME IN MYDARKEST MOMENT, HE SAYS
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:03.819
  • THAT'S NOT FOR YOU, I'MGONNA TAKE YOU AND MAKE
  • 00:21:03.819 --> 00:21:06.188

  • WHO HE WANTS US TO BE.

  • - WHO'S THE EXTRA SEAT FOR?
  • 00:26:00.415 --> 00:26:01.816
  • [KNOCK AT DOOR]
  • 00:26:01.816 --> 00:26:03.084
  • - SOMEONE ELSE?
  • 00:26:03.084 --> 00:26:10.258
  • - TOM NEWMAN: WOW.
  • 00:26:10.759 --> 00:26:12.027
  • - THAT'S NICODEMUSPURSUING MARY GOING--
  • 00:26:12.027 --> 00:26:14.129
  • HE HAD TRIED TOEXORCISE HER DEMON.
  • 00:26:14.129 --> 00:26:17.265
  • - WHO IS THE ACTORWHO PLAYS NICODEMUS?
  • 00:26:17.265 --> 00:26:19.167
  • - ERICK AVARI. HE'S BRILLIANT.
  • 00:26:19.167 --> 00:26:21.169
  • HE'S BEEN AROUNDFOR DECADES.
  • 00:26:21.169 --> 00:26:23.271
  • BUT YEAH, THAT SCENE,THAT'S WHEN HE HAD TRIED
  • 00:26:23.271 --> 00:26:25.306
  • TO EXORCISE HER DEMONSAND IT FAILED, AND HE
  • 00:26:25.306 --> 00:26:27.175
  • THOUGHT WELL NO ONECOULD HAVE HELPED HER.
  • 00:26:27.175 --> 00:26:29.077
  • SHE WAS BEYOND HELP.
  • 00:26:29.077 --> 00:26:30.679
  • AND THEN WHEN HE SEESTHAT SHE WAS HELPED
  • 00:26:30.679 --> 00:26:32.280
  • AND HE'S LIKE WHATIS HAPPENING?
  • 00:26:32.280 --> 00:26:33.848
  • HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?THAT LEADS HIM TO--
  • 00:26:33.848 --> 00:26:35.216
  • - THAT'S A GREAT EXAMPLEOF THIS SERIES BECAUSE WE
  • 00:26:35.216 --> 00:26:40.422
  • DON'T KNOW THAT FROM ABIBLICAL SOURCE THAT'S
  • 00:26:40.422 --> 00:26:42.791
  • WHAT HAPPENED, BUT WHATYOU'VE DONE IS YOU'VE
  • 00:26:42.791 --> 00:26:45.794
  • WOVEN IN FAMILIAR,THE FAMILIAR.
  • 00:26:45.794 --> 00:26:49.898
  • NICODEMUS, A PHARISEEWHO GETS POSITIONED,
  • 00:26:49.898 --> 00:26:55.303
  • AS WE ALL KNOW THROUGHTHE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:26:55.303 --> 00:26:57.739
  • HE GETS POSITIONEDWELL WITH JESUS.
  • 00:26:57.739 --> 00:27:00.241
  • SO IT'S INTRIGUING THEWAY THAT THAT HAPPENS, SO
  • 00:27:00.241 --> 00:27:03.712
  • IT BEGINS HIS JOURNEY OFCURIOSITY, SO I'M SURE
  • 00:27:03.712 --> 00:27:06.915
  • YOU FOLLOW THATTHREAD WITH HIM.
  • 00:27:06.915 --> 00:27:08.850
  • - WELL, OF COURSE, SO WESTART WITH WHAT WE KNOW
  • 00:27:08.850 --> 00:27:10.618
  • WHICH THE FIRST TIMEWE SEE NICODEMUS IN
  • 00:27:10.618 --> 00:27:12.087
  • SCRIPTURE, HE'S APHARISEE WHO BELIEVES
  • 00:27:12.087 --> 00:27:13.722
  • JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD,SO HE GOES TO SEE JESUS.
  • 00:27:13.722 --> 00:27:17.425
  • - SOMETHING HAPPENED.
  • 00:27:17.425 --> 00:27:18.526
  • - SO HE SEES JESUS ATNIGHT, AND WE KNOW THAT
  • 00:27:18.526 --> 00:27:20.995
  • THAT WAS VERY RARE FOR APHARISEE TO BELIEVE IN
  • 00:27:20.995 --> 00:27:23.598
  • JESUS, WHICH IS WHY HEMET WITH HIM AT NIGHT
  • 00:27:23.598 --> 00:27:25.834
  • UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS.HE WAS HIDING.
  • 00:27:25.834 --> 00:27:27.669
  • I MEAN HE WASKEEPING IT QUIET.
  • 00:27:27.669 --> 00:27:29.637
  • SO WE WORK OURWAY BACKWARDS.
  • 00:27:29.637 --> 00:27:30.939
  • WHAT WOULD HAVE LED HIM,ESPECIALLY AS A TOP
  • 00:27:30.939 --> 00:27:33.508
  • PHARISEE, TO BREAKRANK AND BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:27:33.508 --> 00:27:36.077
  • JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH?
  • 00:27:36.077 --> 00:27:37.779
  • THAT WOULD HAVE TAKENSOMETHING SPECIAL,
  • 00:27:37.779 --> 00:27:40.715
  • AND WE PORTRAY THATIT WAS THIS MIRACLE
  • 00:27:40.715 --> 00:27:43.585
  • THAT HE WITNESSES.
  • 00:27:43.585 --> 00:27:44.953
  • WE SEE HIM WITNESS A FEWOTHER MIRACLES BUT YES,
  • 00:27:44.953 --> 00:27:48.022
  • WE'RE ALSO THINKING AHEADTO WHEN HE AT THE CROSS
  • 00:27:48.022 --> 00:27:51.426
  • BECOMES A MORE PASSIONATEFOLLOWER OF JESUS MORE
  • 00:27:51.426 --> 00:27:53.428
  • PUBLICLY. HE HAD KINDOF KEPT IT PRIVATE.
  • 00:27:53.428 --> 00:27:56.765
  • MAYBE HE WASN'T A FULLFOLLOWER BECAUSE HE WAS
  • 00:27:56.765 --> 00:27:59.934
  • AFRAID TO GIVEUP HIS POSITION.
  • 00:27:59.934 --> 00:28:01.836
  • BUT ONCE JESUS DIED AND ITHINK THE FULL WEIGHT OF
  • 00:28:01.836 --> 00:28:04.339

  • WE'RE NOT BEHOLDEN TOAN HOUR OF BROADCAST
  • 00:33:09.944 --> 00:33:12.613
  • TELEVISION, SO SOMEEPISODES ARE A LITTLE
  • 00:33:12.613 --> 00:33:14.449
  • SHORTER THAN OTHERS, SOMEARE A LITTLE LONGER THAN

  • - IF YOU'RE GONNA BINGESOMETHING, YOU MIGHT
  • 00:33:34.702 --> 00:33:36.037
  • AS WELL BINGE ON JESUS.
  • 00:33:36.037 --> 00:33:37.371
  • BINGE IS DEFINED ASHAVING AN OBSESSION WITH
  • 00:33:37.371 --> 00:33:39.207
  • SOMETHING, AND IT COULDBE UNHEALTHY, BUT IT ALSO
  • 00:33:39.207 --> 00:33:41.676

  • YOU GET TO 75 MILLIONPEOPLE WATCHING, THE

  • LEVEL OF EXPECTATION ANDWHAT YOU HAVE TO DELIVER
  • 00:34:10.638 --> 00:34:13.975
  • HAS GOT TO BE HIGH.
  • 00:34:13.975 --> 00:34:15.676
  • TELL US ABOUT SOMEOF THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:34:15.676 --> 00:34:17.044
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH.
  • 00:34:17.044 --> 00:34:18.146
  • - WELL IT'S DEFINITELYONE OF THOSE THINGS WHERE
  • 00:34:18.146 --> 00:34:19.747
  • I MEAN PRODUCTIONIN GENERAL IS HARD.
  • 00:34:19.747 --> 00:34:21.315
  • LIKE YOU SAID, WE'VE ALLBEEN DOING THIS A LONG
  • 00:34:21.315 --> 00:34:22.683
  • TIME AND KNOWN EACHOTHER AND DONE FILMS,
  • 00:34:22.683 --> 00:34:24.318
  • AND MAKING MOVIESIS A HARD THING.
  • 00:34:24.318 --> 00:34:26.287
  • I THINK YOU THROW IN THEFACT THAT YOU'RE WANTING
  • 00:34:26.287 --> 00:34:28.689
  • TO DO SOMETHINGFOR THE LORD.
  • 00:34:28.689 --> 00:34:30.424
  • I MEAN, I THINK THE DEVILIS GONNA COME AFTER YOU
  • 00:34:30.424 --> 00:34:32.326
  • IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY.
  • 00:34:32.326 --> 00:34:34.562
  • AND AS WE FACE PROBLEMS,AGAIN THERE'S KIND OF
  • 00:34:34.562 --> 00:34:36.797
  • THESE RUNNING JOKES, ANDDALLAS SAYS IT ALL THE
  • 00:34:36.797 --> 00:34:39.600
  • TIME, IT'S JUST KINDOF OUT OF OUR CONTROL.
  • 00:34:39.600 --> 00:34:41.335
  • WE HAVE TO KIND OFCONTINUE TO DO WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:34:41.335 --> 00:34:42.970
  • GONNA DO, BUT THE JOKEHAS KIND OF BECOME WELL
  • 00:34:42.970 --> 00:34:45.072
  • IT'S THE CHOSEN, RIGHT?
  • 00:34:45.072 --> 00:34:46.641
  • WHETHER IT'S FLOODS THATWE'VE HAD BEFORE, WHETHER
  • 00:34:46.641 --> 00:34:48.976
  • IT'S EXCESSIVE HEAT,WHETHER IT'S,
  • 00:34:48.976 --> 00:34:50.778
  • YOU NAME THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:34:50.778 --> 00:34:52.046
  • OBVIOUSLY RIGHT NOW WE'REFACING THIS PANDEMIC THAT
  • 00:34:52.046 --> 00:34:54.348
  • WE'RE IN, BUT WE ALSOCONSIDER OURSELVES VERY
  • 00:34:54.348 --> 00:34:56.617
  • BLESSED TO BE ABLE TODO WHAT WE'RE DOING
  • 00:34:56.617 --> 00:34:58.486
  • RIGHT NOW, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:34:58.486 --> 00:35:00.054
  • - GUYS, WHEN YOU CAME ONTHE SET TODAY,
  • 00:35:00.054 --> 00:35:01.656
  • YOU SAID LISTEN, DON'TWORRY ABOUT GETTING
  • 00:35:01.656 --> 00:35:03.991
  • COVID FROM US. WHY?
  • 00:35:03.991 --> 00:35:06.494
  • - WELL, THAT'SINTERESTING BECAUSE WE
  • 00:35:06.494 --> 00:35:07.495
  • TEST THREE TIMES A WEEK.
  • 00:35:07.495 --> 00:35:09.263
  • I MEAN, THERE ARE THESESTANDARDS THAT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:35:09.263 --> 00:35:12.567
  • CREATED IN THE INDUSTRYTO DO WHAT WE DO TO KEEP
  • 00:35:12.567 --> 00:35:16.971
  • PEOPLE SAFE, RIGHT?
  • 00:35:16.971 --> 00:35:18.306
  • AND ONE OF THE BIGGESTREASONS OBVIOUSLY IS
  • 00:35:18.306 --> 00:35:19.807
  • ACTORS ARE EXPOSED, THEYCAN'T WEAR MASKS WHEN
  • 00:35:19.807 --> 00:35:21.642
  • THEY'RE ACTING ANDTHOSE TYPE OF THINGS.
  • 00:35:21.642 --> 00:35:23.077
  • DURING THE PROCESS OFRAMPING UP TO SAY OKAY,
  • 00:35:23.077 --> 00:35:25.680
  • ARE WE ACTUALLYGONNA TRY TO SHOOT
  • 00:35:25.680 --> 00:35:27.114
  • DURING A PANDEMIC?
  • 00:35:27.114 --> 00:35:28.349
  • DURING THIS TIME WHENTHERE'S SO MUCH FEAR AND
  • 00:35:28.349 --> 00:35:30.918
  • SO MUCH CONFUSION?
  • 00:35:30.918 --> 00:35:32.086
  • I THINK WE PROBABLY DEALWITH THAT MORE THAN
  • 00:35:32.086 --> 00:35:33.621
  • ANYTHING IS PEOPLE'SQUESTIONS, PEOPLE'S
  • 00:35:33.621 --> 00:35:35.823
  • FEARS, NOT NECESSARILYTHE SICKNESS ITSELF.
  • 00:35:35.823 --> 00:35:39.060
  • - IT'S ONE THING TO BE ATYOUR HOME AND JUST TO GO,
  • 00:35:39.060 --> 00:35:41.195
  • LOOK, IF I GET COVID,BIG DEAL. IT'S FINE.
  • 00:35:41.195 --> 00:35:43.531
  • AND I'LL BE OUT FOR AWEEK AND IT'S NO BIG DEAL,
  • 00:35:43.531 --> 00:35:45.199
  • AND THAT'S HOW WE WEREWHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED.
  • 00:35:45.199 --> 00:35:47.101
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE ON A SET,AND YOU'VE GOT LITERALLY
  • 00:35:47.101 --> 00:35:49.136
  • HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE COMINGIN EVERY SINGLE DAY, AND
  • 00:35:49.136 --> 00:35:51.806
  • IF WE HAVE A LITTLEOUTBREAK, EVEN IF IT'S
  • 00:35:51.806 --> 00:35:54.809
  • MINOR, IT CAN SHUT DOWNTHE ENTIRE PRODUCTION FOR
  • 00:35:54.809 --> 00:35:56.844
  • WEEKS AND THAT COSTSMILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
  • 00:35:56.844 --> 00:35:58.279
  • - YOU'VE GOT ONE SCENECOMING UP SOON,
  • 00:35:58.279 --> 00:36:00.248
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE?
  • 00:36:00.248 --> 00:36:01.616

  • THE SET UNTIL THEY'VEBEEN TESTED RAPIDLY.
  • 00:36:37.018 --> 00:36:39.287

  • WHAT YOU'RE DOING?
  • 00:36:41.188 --> 00:36:42.356
  • - THAT'S CHAD'SJOB TO WORRY ABOUT.
  • 00:36:42.356 --> 00:36:43.557
  • I JUST TELL HIM HEY,HERE'S WHAT I WANT TO DO.

  • - BUDGET BUT GET IT DONE.
  • 00:36:45.526 --> 00:36:46.861
  • - THAT'S AN INTERESTINGTHING TOO BECAUSE AS
  • 00:36:46.861 --> 00:36:49.664
  • AMAZING TO SEE WHAT GODHAS DONE TO RAISE THE
  • 00:36:49.664 --> 00:36:52.867
  • MONEY, RIGHT, AND WE'VEALL BEEN IN THIS INDUSTRY
  • 00:36:52.867 --> 00:36:54.402
  • AND IT'S DIFFICULT TORAISE MONEY, DIFFICULT TO
  • 00:36:54.402 --> 00:36:55.636
  • DO THESE TYPES OF THINGS.
  • 00:36:55.636 --> 00:36:57.004
  • WE STILL ARE MAKING ASHOW ON A FRACTION OF

  • IT'S ALSO A HUGERESPONSIBILITY, RIGHT?
  • 00:37:12.286 --> 00:37:13.921
  • BECAUSE IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'REANSWERING TO
  • 00:37:13.921 --> 00:37:14.922
  • TWO OR THREE PEOPLE.

  • YOU'RE ANSWERING TO TWENTY,THIRTY, FORTY THOUSAND PEOPLE.
  • 00:37:16.223 --> 00:37:18.025

  • WE ANSWER TO GODWITH THAT MONEY.
  • 00:37:19.460 --> 00:37:21.529

  • ONE PERSON'S THING.
  • 00:41:40.154 --> 00:41:42.222

  • THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH, BUTTHEN OTHER PEOPLE PAY IT
  • 00:41:46.994 --> 00:41:49.096

  • 00:46:07.221 --> 00:46:08.522
  • HE'S OUT IN A CAMPSITE BYHIMSELF, AND A GROUP OF
  • 00:46:08.522 --> 00:46:10.591
  • CHILDREN KIND OF COME ALONGJUST TO SEE HIM, AND THAT'S
  • 00:46:10.591 --> 00:46:14.161
  • BEEN ONE OF THE MOST TALKEDABOUT EPISODES OF THE WHOLE
  • 00:46:14.161 --> 00:46:15.796
  • SEASON BECAUSE YOU START TOSEE ALMOST A PREVIEW OF HIS
  • 00:46:15.796 --> 00:46:18.298
  • MINISTRY WITH THESE CHILDRENAND HOW HE IMPACTS THEM.
  • 00:46:18.298 --> 00:46:21.301
  • THAT'S WHY THE EPISODE ISCALLED "JESUS LOVES
  • 00:46:21.301 --> 00:46:22.603
  • THE LITTLE CHILDREN".
  • 00:46:22.603 --> 00:46:23.804
  • - SO TEAM, AS YOU APPROACHTHIS, BECAUSE YOU'RE USING
  • 00:46:23.804 --> 00:46:28.575
  • THE BIBLE AND EXTRA-BIBLICALSOURCES WEAVING THINGS
  • 00:46:28.575 --> 00:46:32.312
  • THROUGH, ARE YOU TRYINGTO JUST BE INCLUSIVE OF
  • 00:46:32.312 --> 00:46:36.450
  • EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING?
  • 00:46:36.450 --> 00:46:38.085
  • HOW ARE YOU BEING DIRECTEDTO KIND OF LINE
  • 00:46:38.085 --> 00:46:40.287
  • OUT THE EPISODES?
  • 00:46:40.287 --> 00:46:42.456
  • - YOU MEAN IN TERMS OF THECHARACTERS IN THE GOSPELS?
  • 00:46:42.456 --> 00:46:44.558
  • - WELL, NOT NECESSARILY,JUST THE MATERIAL ITSELF.
  • 00:46:44.558 --> 00:46:47.728
  • I MEAN, THAT ONE WASFOCUSED TOWARDS CHILDREN.
  • 00:46:47.728 --> 00:46:49.930
  • - YES.
  • 00:46:49.930 --> 00:46:50.931
  • - OBVIOUSLY, SOYOU'VE GOT CHILDREN.
  • 00:46:50.931 --> 00:46:52.866
  • YOU'VE GOT MARY MAGDALENE,YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:46:52.866 --> 00:46:55.469
  • STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION.
  • 00:46:55.469 --> 00:46:56.837
  • - I UNDERSTAND,THE AUDIENCE.
  • 00:46:56.837 --> 00:46:58.272
  • - ARE YOU JUST KIND OFMAKING A LIST AND SAYING,
  • 00:46:58.272 --> 00:47:00.040
  • HERE'S THE PROBLEMSWE'RE CONFRONTING.
  • 00:47:00.040 --> 00:47:01.475
  • WE NEED AN EPISODE ABOUTTHIS AND AN EPISODE -- HOW
  • 00:47:01.475 --> 00:47:03.210
  • ARE YOU DOING IT?
  • 00:47:03.210 --> 00:47:04.378
  • - THAT'S A REALLY GOODQUESTION, AND THE ANSWER IS
  • 00:47:04.378 --> 00:47:06.580
  • WE GENUINELY, AND THIS MAYSOUND SCARY, BUT IT'S TRUE,
  • 00:47:06.580 --> 00:47:10.450
  • WE GENUINELY AREN'T THINKINGABOUT THE AUDIENCE WHEN
  • 00:47:10.450 --> 00:47:13.320
  • WE'RE MAKING THIS SHOW.
  • 00:47:13.320 --> 00:47:14.521
  • WE'RE FEELING ONE HUNDREDPERCENT BEHOLDEN TO WHAT WE
  • 00:47:14.521 --> 00:47:17.190
  • BELIEVE GOD WANTS SAID.
  • 00:47:17.190 --> 00:47:18.892
  • SO WHEN I'M GOING TO WRITEAN EPISODE, AND MY PARTNERS
  • 00:47:18.892 --> 00:47:21.028
  • ARE WRITING AN EPISODE,THERE'S ENOUGH PRESSURE
  • 00:47:21.028 --> 00:47:23.664
  • JUST TO MAKE A GOODTELEVISION SHOW.
  • 00:47:23.664 --> 00:47:25.632
  • ADDING TO THAT PRESSURE THEIDEA OF WELL, WHO CAN WE TRY
  • 00:47:25.632 --> 00:47:29.469
  • TO MAKE SURE WE APPEAL TO?IT'S TOO MUCH.
  • 00:47:29.469 --> 00:47:32.973
  • - SO IT'S NOT ABOUTINCLUSION THAT WAY, IT'S
  • 00:47:32.973 --> 00:47:35.309
  • JUST ABOUT DIRECTION.
  • 00:47:35.309 --> 00:47:36.677
  • - IT'S ABOUT DIRECTION,VERY WELL SAID.
  • 00:47:36.677 --> 00:47:38.478
  • WE WANT TO TELL THE STORIESOF LIFE CHANGE FROM THE GOSPELS.
  • 00:47:38.478 --> 00:47:42.149
  • - WHICH AREWHOLLY INCLUSIVE.
  • 00:47:42.149 --> 00:47:44.952
  • - THAT'S THE THING. ITHAPPENS NATURALLY.
  • 00:47:44.952 --> 00:47:46.753
  • WE DIDN'T SET UP TO GO,LET'S MAKE SURE WE COVER
  • 00:47:46.753 --> 00:47:48.722
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE DEPRESSED,MAKE SURE WE COVER PEOPLE
  • 00:47:48.722 --> 00:47:50.824
  • WHO ARE STRUGGLINGFINANCIALLY.
  • 00:47:50.824 --> 00:47:53.260
  • BUT THE STORY OF THE GOSPELSHAPPENS TO BE THE
  • 00:47:53.260 --> 00:47:55.762
  • STORY OF HOW GOD REDEEMS THELOWEST OF THE LOW AND THE
  • 00:47:55.762 --> 00:47:59.032
  • HIGHEST OF THE HIGH EQUALLY.
  • 00:47:59.032 --> 00:48:01.168
  • IF ANYTHING, HE ERRS ONTHE SIDE OF THE LOWEST.
  • 00:48:01.168 --> 00:48:04.204
  • AND SO JUST BY TELLING THESTORY AUTHENTICALLY, IT HAS
  • 00:48:04.204 --> 00:48:08.241
  • PROVEN TO BE EXTREMELYINCLUSIVE OF ALL
  • 00:48:08.241 --> 00:48:11.078
  • DIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:48:11.078 --> 00:48:12.245
  • NOW, THE STORY OF CHRIST,THE STORY OF THE GOSPELS, WE
  • 00:48:12.245 --> 00:48:14.047
  • DON'T WATER IT DOWN AT ALL.
  • 00:48:14.047 --> 00:48:15.615
  • WE DON'T CHANGE THEMESSAGE WHATSOEVER.
  • 00:48:15.615 --> 00:48:17.818
  • OUR AGENDA IS TO TELL THESTORY OF CHRIST HONESTLY.
  • 00:48:17.818 --> 00:48:21.154
  • BUT THE GOSPEL IS INCLUSIVETO ALL THOSE WHO RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:48:21.154 --> 00:48:25.892
  • - SURE. I DON'T KNOW, I'VE NEVERSET A STOP WATCH ON HOW LONG IT
  • 00:48:25.892 --> 00:48:29.997
  • TAKES ME TO READ THE NEWTESTAMENT, BUT I IMAGINE
  • 00:48:29.997 --> 00:48:33.800
  • THAT ALONE, THE TIME THATWOULD BE SEVEN SEASONS, IF I
  • 00:48:33.800 --> 00:48:38.472
  • JUST DID THAT, AND YOU AREDOING FLASHBACKS FROM OLD
  • 00:48:38.472 --> 00:48:41.141
  • TESTAMENT, YOU'RE BEINGINCLUSIVE THAT WAY, SO I CAN
  • 00:48:41.141 --> 00:48:43.610
  • IMAGINE THE MATERIALIS PLENTIFUL.
  • 00:48:43.610 --> 00:48:46.179
  • - SURE.
  • 00:48:46.179 --> 00:48:47.414
  • - SO I IMAGINE BY THE TIMEYOU GET TO THE 7TH SEASON,
  • 00:48:47.414 --> 00:48:49.583
  • YOU'LL THINK OF 7 MORESEASONS, AND IT
  • 00:48:49.583 --> 00:48:51.418
  • WILL KIND OF KEEP COMING.
  • 00:48:51.418 --> 00:48:52.519
  • - WELL, WE'REGETTING PEOPLE TO --
  • 00:48:52.519 --> 00:48:53.720
  • - YES [GIGGLING].
  • 00:48:53.720 --> 00:48:55.122
  • - WELL, WE'RE GOING TO TAKEA YEAR-LONG NAP [LAUGHTER],
  • 00:48:55.122 --> 00:48:58.825
  • BUT WE HAVE PEOPLE ALREADYASKING US ARE YOU GOING TO

  • ARE YOU GOING TO START TOGO MORE BIBLE PROJECTS?
  • 00:49:02.462 --> 00:49:04.031
  • AND HONESTLY, THE WAY THAT--FOR AMANDA AND ME, WE
  • 00:49:04.031 --> 00:49:07.667
  • BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS CALLEDUS, PERHAPS LATER IN LIFE
  • 00:49:07.667 --> 00:49:11.972
  • THAN MAYBE WE WERE AWARE OF.
  • 00:49:11.972 --> 00:49:14.207
  • WE SHOULD HAVE PROBABLYSEEN THIS COMING EARLIER.
  • 00:49:14.207 --> 00:49:15.876
  • - WE WERE SLOW LEARNERS.
  • 00:49:15.876 --> 00:49:17.744
  • - BUT HE'S CALLED US TOTELL THE STORIES OF THE
  • 00:49:17.744 --> 00:49:20.447
  • BIBLE UNTIL HE COMESOR UNTIL WE DIE FIRST.
  • 00:49:20.447 --> 00:49:24.451

  • BOOK OF ACTS, THENWE'LL KEEP GOING.
  • 00:49:26.887 --> 00:49:28.588
  • - SURE. I THINK THAT'S ABEAUTIFUL THING, AND I THINK
  • 00:49:28.588 --> 00:49:32.225
  • WE'LL ALL BE ANTICIPATING TO SEEWHAT'S COMING NEXT.

  • WE PLOT OUT THE SEASONSWE'RE WORKING ON.
  • 00:50:20.373 --> 00:50:21.808
  • WE PLOT OUT THE EPISODESWE'RE WORKING ON, BUT IT ALL
  • 00:50:21.808 --> 00:50:24.377

  • HOW CAN IT BE TOLD IN THEMOST AUTHENTIC WAY POSSIBLE?
  • 00:50:27.481 --> 00:50:29.850
  • THAT'S OUR OPERATINGPRINCIPLE.
  • 00:50:29.850 --> 00:50:31.585
  • - SO DO YOU GUYS GETTOGETHER AND PRAY?
  • 00:50:31.585 --> 00:50:33.787

  • - ALL OF THE ABOVE.
  • 00:50:37.591 --> 00:50:38.892
  • SO IT STARTS WITH, OFCOURSE, PRAYER, AND OF
  • 00:50:38.892 --> 00:50:41.294
  • COURSE MAKING SURE THAT WEARE NOT GETTING IN THE WAY
  • 00:50:41.294 --> 00:50:44.498
  • OF WHAT GOD IS DOING BECAUSETHAT'S VERY EASY FOR US
  • 00:50:44.498 --> 00:50:46.967
  • HUMAN BEINGS TO DO. I'M SUREYOU'VE EXPERIENCED IT.
  • 00:50:46.967 --> 00:50:48.969
  • MANY TIMES YOU'VEGONE, YOU KNOW WHAT?

  • THAT WAS MY MIND TRYING TOINFLUENCE THIS DECISION.
  • 00:50:50.337 --> 00:50:53.874
  • I NEED TO DOEVERYTHING I CAN.
  • 00:50:53.874 --> 00:50:55.842
  • WE HINTED AT THIS EARLIER,THE STORY OF
  • 00:50:55.842 --> 00:50:57.577
  • THE FEEDING OF THE 5.000.
  • 00:50:57.577 --> 00:50:59.246
  • OUR OPERATING PRINCIPLE ISIT'S NOT YOUR JOB TO FEED
  • 00:50:59.246 --> 00:51:03.250
  • THE 5.000. IT'S ONLY TO PROVIDETHE LOAVES AND FISH.
  • 00:51:03.250 --> 00:51:05.852
  • SO WE, AS WRITERS, OUR JOBIS TO SIMPLY PROVIDE THE
  • 00:51:05.852 --> 00:51:08.555
  • FIVE LOAVES AND TWO FISHTHAT WE CAN, MAKE THEM THE
  • 00:51:08.555 --> 00:51:11.291
  • HEALTHIEST AND THEBEST THAT THEY CAN BE.
  • 00:51:11.291 --> 00:51:13.193
  • THAT'S OUR PART SO THAT IFGOD CHOOSES TO MULTIPLY
  • 00:51:13.193 --> 00:51:15.195
  • THAT, THEN HE CAN, BUTTHAT'S WHAT WE
  • 00:51:15.195 --> 00:51:17.564
  • START WITH FOR SURE.
  • 00:51:17.564 --> 00:51:19.399
  • - I AM SEARCHING FOR ANEXPLANATION FOR SOMETHING I
  • 00:51:19.399 --> 00:51:24.504
  • -- I CANNOT UNSEE.
  • 00:51:24.504 --> 00:51:26.740
  • - WE NEED TO TALK.
  • 00:51:26.740 --> 00:51:28.241
  • HE'S THE MESSIAH, AND HECALLED ME TO FOLLOW HIM,
  • 00:51:28.241 --> 00:51:30.911
  • TO GO WHERE HE GOES ANDTO LEARN FROM HIM.
  • 00:51:30.911 --> 00:51:33.113
  • HE SAID THAT I WOULDN'T BEA FISHERMAN ANYMORE,
  • 00:51:33.113 --> 00:51:34.881
  • BUT [GIGGLES] CANYOU BELIEVE THIS?
  • 00:51:34.881 --> 00:51:37.551
  • - YOU BEEN HERE LONG?
  • 00:51:37.551 --> 00:51:39.019
  • - PERFECT DAY FORA WEDDING, HUH?

  • KNOW WILL BE THERE.
  • 00:51:42.088 --> 00:51:43.223
  • - OH, YEAH?- MY MOTHER.
  • 00:51:43.223 --> 00:51:44.758
  • - DILUTE THE WINE.PEOPLE WILL NOTICE.
  • 00:51:45.659 --> 00:51:48.094
  • - IF THEY DID, I FEEL LIKETHIS FAMILY WILL DIE OF SHAME.
  • 00:51:48.094 --> 00:51:51.031
  • - MY SON, THEY'VERUN OUT OF WINE.
  • 00:51:51.031 --> 00:51:55.135
  • - SO THAT'S EPISODE FIVEPREVIEW WHERE, AS YOU CAN
  • 00:51:56.169 --> 00:51:59.039
  • TELL, THEY'RE AT A WEDDING,AND THEY'VE RUN OUT OF WINE,
  • 00:51:59.039 --> 00:52:01.808

  • IT'S JUST ALL NATURALLY DONE.
  • 00:52:16.356 --> 00:52:19.392
  • SO WHEN YOU HIT INTO THEBIBLICAL SCENES, WHAT IT IS

  • IT'S ALL TAKING US THERE.
  • 00:52:39.012 --> 00:52:40.680

  • ARE YOU ADDING TO THE BIBLE?
  • 00:53:02.369 --> 00:53:03.536
  • I WANT TO MAKE IT FIRST OFALL VERY CLEAR, WE'RE NOT
