Matthew the Apostle (Saint Matthew/Levi) was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and one of the four apostles that wrote a book about the life of Christ and the gospel. Matthew was born in the first century, and he was the son of Alpheus. He also appeared in Mark 2:14 and Luck 5:27, described as the tax collector Levi. As a disciple, Matthew followed Jesus, and he was one the witness of the Resurrection and the Ascension of Jesus.
The book of Matthew was the first book in the New Testaments. The book of Mathew was written according to a time line. It started with “The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah”, which showed that Jesus was from the root of David. Then it tells us about the Magi, and Jesus’ parents went to Egypt to hide from King Herod.
After the death of King Herod, Jesus’ family moved back to their home, Nazareth, so that the prophets will be fulfilled, that Jesus will be called a Nazarene. John the Baptist comes, and gives the baptism of Jesus. Jesus then went to the wildness for test. And in there Jesus said to the devil, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”
