St Matthew Icon 3"
Saint Matthew, also known as Levi, was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ and the author of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament. Originally a tax collector, Matthew's encounter with Jesus led to his profound conversion and subsequent call to discipleship. He faithfully followed Jesus throughout his ministry, witnessing his teachings, miracles, and ultimately his death and resurrection. After the Ascension, Matthew played a crucial role in spreading the Gospel, particularly among Jewish communities. His Gospel emphasizes Jesus' role as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies and the establishment of the Kingdom of God. Saint Matthew's life serves as a testament to the transformative power of encountering Christ and the call to discipleship for believers throughout history.
