A publican named Levi (telwnen onomati Leuein). Mark 2:13 has also "The son of Alphaeus" while Matthew 9:9 calls him "Matthew." He had, of course, both names. All three use the same words (epi to telwnion) for the place of toll. See discussion of publican (telwnh) on Matthew 9:9 . All three Gospels give the command of Jesus, Follow me (akolouqei).
