Matthew

 

Occurrences:  5

First Reference:  Yeshua 8:2

 

And departing from there he entered a boat and came again unto Capernaum, and there came out to meet him a certain tax collector whose name was Matthew.

 

 

See:  Capernaum, Chuza

 

Summary:  When Mathew (a tax collector from Capernaum) heard that Yeshua was in the city, he invited the master and certain of his disciples to his house for dinner. After hearing Yeshua speak, and after witnessing the healing of Mary Magdala, Matthew became a devoted follower of Yeshua (Y:8:63-67). Little is mentioned about Matthew other than he was friends with Chuza, Herod’s chief steward, and that he eventually served a mission which — according to Azrael’s Commentary — was financially supported by Joseph of Arimathea.

 

 

Notes/References:

 

[...] Joseph of Arimathea was one of the most devoted disciples of Yeshua. He freely gave to the poor, and he used his vast wealth to finance the missions of Paul, Silas, Barnabas, Cephas and Matthew. [...]

AZC — Joseph of Arimathea

 

 

63. And Matthew, being made witness to all these things, inclined his soul unto Yeshua; and turning to Chuza, Herod’s chief steward, he said:

64. “When first I bid him to my house, I thought to honor him, for all Israel speaks of him. But he, by his grace, has honored me beyond measure.

65. How then shall all these riches give me joy again, seeing that in the light of his word alone I am made alive?

66. For in the absence of his word is there a desert found, but in his speech is paradise revealed again unto man; for at the sound of his voice are all our dreams come alive, and like the wind he has carried us all unto God.”

67. Now on the day following was Matthew made busy counting taxes, and Yeshua, walking by, said: “Come, follow me.” And Matthew, forsaking all else, followed after him in the selfsame hour.
