Mattai ben Alphaeus haLevi

Matthew (Mattai), the son of Alphaeus, a Levi, was a Jewish man born in the Galilee in the first century C.E. He worked as a tax collector for the Roman Empire and was literate in Aramaic and Greek. While sitting at the "receipt of custom" in Capernaum, he was called to follow Yeshu (Jesus) and became famous as one of his disciples.
