Jesus Calls Levi (Matthew) to Follow Him
13 Jesus went out to walk near Lake Galilee, and a massive crowed gathered, so he taught them. 14 As he walked along, he found Levi, the son of Alphaeus,[b] sitting at the tax booth, collecting taxes. He approached him and said, “Come follow me.” Immediately he got up from his booth and began to follow Jesus.
