Matthew I of Jerusalem was the Bishop of Jerusalem (Aelia Capitolina) during the period between the revolt in Palestine of 66 to 70 and that of 132/135, during which, according to Eusebius, there were thirteen bishops of Jerusalem, all Jewish Christians. Matthew was probably bishop for few years after Tobias until 120. While he was persecuted under emperor Hadrian, Matthew was said to have died in peace.
