The tax collector named Matheus was in the service of the Roman occupants, which is why he was misused and despised by the doctors of the law and the Pharisees. However, it was he who, while exercising his profession, Jesus called: "Follow me." The adhesion was immediate. Matthew is attributed to the writing of one of the four Gospels; Before in Aramaic. The Gospel of Matthew, as we possess today, written in Greek, was influenced by Mark and Luke. However, he retained his own physiognomy. It is the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, of fulfillment in Christ of the Old Covenant; The Gospel of the Sermon on the mountain and the church. Regarding the Apostolate of Matthew and the circumstances of his death or martyrdom, there are no sufficient and reliable evidence.
