When Matthew left his tax collector’s booth in Galilee to follow Jesus, he became an eyewitness to the Savior’s ministry. His record gives the teachings of Jesus and assures believers that Jesus is the Messiah foretold by so many Old Testament prophecies. For these reasons, his gospel has become the first book of the New Testament.
