Matthew





Whose occupation was that of a toll-gatherer, was born at Nazareth. He

wrote his gospel in Hebrew, which was afterwards translated into Greek

by James the Less. The scene of his labors was Parthia, and Ethiopia, in

which latter country he suffered martyrdom, being slain with a halberd

in the city of Nadabah, A. D. 60.
