According to the Bible, Saint Matthew was one of the 12 Disciples and the first author of the New Testament.
He was born in Palestine in the 1st Century and became one of Jesus' 12 disciples and also one of the four Evangelists. Matthew worked as a tax collector in Capernaum.   He authored the first Gospel of the Bible's New Testament, now known as the Gospel of Matthew.  He is the patron saint of tax collectors and accountants. The Feast of Saint Matthew is celebrated each year on the 21st of September.
