Saint Matthew (1st Century) - St. Matthew is best known as one of Jesus' 12 Apostles and the author of the New Testament's first gospel. Matthew lived in the first century in Galilee and was a tax collector during the Roman occupation. Due to vast corruption, tax collectors of the time were often considered sinners. “As Jesus…saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, he said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And he rose and followed him.” (Matthew 9:9) Later, when questioned by the Pharisees, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus says “I came not to call on the righteous, but sinners” (9:14). As a disciple, Matthew followed Christ, and was one of the witnesses of the Resurrection and the Ascension. He remained in Jerusalem and proclaimed that Jesus was the promised Messiah. For 15 years, he preached the Gospel in Hebrew to the Jewish community in Judea and his ministry spread to the Ethiopians, Macedonians, Persians, and Parthians. Saint Matthew is the patron saint of Bankers, Tax collectors and Accountants.
