The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are called the Synoptic Gospels, as they follow a similar pattern in describing the Life of Jesus and his teachings. Characteristic of all three are the Parables of Jesus. Matthew relates ten Parables on the Kingdom of Heaven, seven of which occur in Chapter 13 and are central to his Gospel. In the Parable of the Wedding Feast, the King remarks, "For many are called but few are chosen" Matthew is traditionally cited as biblical evidence of Guardian Angels. There are elements to Matthew's Gospel that are unique to it alone. Matthew includes the complete Sermon on the Mount in Chapters 5 through 7; and Matthew's description of his becoming an Apostle in Chapter Matthew is the only one of the Gospel writers to refer to the Church in his reference to establishing Church authority with Peter.

Are you not of more value than they? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? Have you come here to torment us before the time?
