The Gospel of Matthew (literally, "according to Matthew"; Greek, ?at? ?a??a??? or ?at? ?at?a???) is one of the four Gospel accounts of the New Testament. It narrates an account of the life and ministry of Jesus, from his genealogy to his post-resurrection commissioning of his Apostles to "go and make disciples of all nations." Bibles traditionally print Matthew as the first gospel, followed in order by Mark, Luke and John. Authorship is traditionally ascribed to Matthew the Evangelist. (Summary from Wikipedia).
