Matthew


Matthew
One of the Twelve [[➝ Twelve, the]] (Mark 3:18) whose call to follow Jesus came to him while he sat in his tax office (Matt. 9:9). In the parallel narrative in Mark (2:14) the tax official's name is Levi—perhaps a second name for the same person—though, if the disciples were intended to correspond to the tribes of Israel (Luke 22:30), then on some reckonings there are thirteen tribes (Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, counting as one each) and thirteen apostles (counting Levi and Matthew as two persons). As a tax collector, Matthew was collaborating with the occupying power.
