Matthew and the angel

Matthew, also known as Levi, son of Alphaeus,[1] was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus[2] and one of the four Evangelists. He was a tax collector by trade until Jesus called him to follow Him.[3] This would have made Matthew literate in Aramaic and Greek.[4] Matthew witnessed the Ressurrected Jesus and His ascension.[5] He was also present at Pentecost at the coming of the Holy Spirit in the upper room.[6] Later in life Matthew wrote the Gospel of Matthew.
