From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: (New Testament) disciple of Jesus; traditionally considered

           Matthew, St. Matthew, Saint Matthew the Apostle, St.
           Matthew the Apostle, Levi]
      2: one of the Gospels in the New Testament; includes the Sermon
         on the Mount [syn: Gospel According to Matthew]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    gift of God, a common Jewish name after the Exile. He was the
    son of Alphaeus, and was a publican or tax-gatherer at
    Capernaum. On one occasion Jesus, coming up from the side of the
    lake, passed the custom-house where Matthew was seated, and said
    to him, "Follow me." Matthew arose and followed him, and became
    his disciple (Matt. 9:9). Formerly the name by which he was
    known was Levi (Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27); he now changed it,
    possibly in grateful memory of his call, to Matthew. The same
    day on which Jesus called him he made a "great feast" (Luke
    5:29), a farewell feast, to which he invited Jesus and his
    disciples, and probably also many of old associates. He was
    afterwards selected as one of the twelve (6:15). His name does
    not occur again in the Gospel history except in the lists of the
    apostles. The last notice of him is in Acts 1:13. The time and
    manner of his death are unknown.
