Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist - Hand-Painted Icon
Iconographer: Michael Father
Commemorates on: November 16
This Apostle, who was also called Levi, was the son of Alphaeus and had Galilee as his homeland. A publican before being called by Christ, he became one of the Twelve Apostles, and an Evangelist. While still in Palestine, he wrote his Gospel first in Hebrew, being also the first of all to write the Gospel. When he is depicted in icons, there is portrayed next to him the likeness of a man, one of the symbolic living creatures mentioned by Ezekiel, which, as Saint Irenaeus writes, is a symbol of our Saviours Incarnation.
