The Chosen Season 3 Episode 1 Recap
A small four minute scene was shown in the recent livestream of The Chosen. That was a rough cut from the opening of season 3. It shows flashback scenes where Matthew is shown talking to his father, Alphaeus.
This also answers to our question why Matthew’s father disowned him. It was because Matthew was supporting the tax collectors and helping enemies to slay his own people. He was building huge wealth for himself without caring for his people.
That’s why people despised him and his father decided to disown him because Matthew has bring shame to the family.
