Like millions worldwide, I am addicted to the series "The Chosen." This is the retelling of the story of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. It is unlike most Bible depictions in that it really gives you an appreciation of the characters and the world they lived in.

One of the disciples, Matthew, was a hated tax collector. The actor who plays him has OCD and other issues. Interestingly enough, Matthew is portrayed as someone on the autistic spectrum. Greatly misunderstood and disliked, he is always an outsider, alone, always vacillating between sadness and anger.

Check out the actor who plays Matthew, he's so loveable and brings so much to his character...
