    The external evidence is ancient and universal that Matthew the tax collector, also called Levi, wrote the First Gospel. Since he was not a prominent member of the apostolic band it would be strange to attribute the First Gospel to him if indeed he had nothing to do with it.Besides the ancient document known as the “Didache” (Teaching of the Twelve Apostles), Justin Martyr, Dionysius of Corinth, Theophilus of Antioch, and Athenagoras, the Athenian quote the Gospel as authentic. Eusebius, the church historian, quotes Papias as saying that “Matthew composed the Logia in the Hebrew language, and everyone interpreted them as he was able.” Irenaeus, Pantaenus, and Origen basically agree with this. “Hebrew” is widely thought to mean the dialect of Aramaic used by the Hebrews in our Lord’s time, as the word is used in the NT. But what are the “Logia”? Usually this Greek word means “oracles,” as the OT contains the oracles of God. It cannot mean that in Papias’ statement. There are three main views on his statement: (1) It refers to the Gospel of Matthew as such. That is, Matthew wrote an Aramaic edition of his Gospel especially to win the Jews to Christ and edify Hebrew Christians, and only later did a Greek edition appear. (2) It refers to sayings of Jesus only, which later became incorporated into his Gospel. (3) It refers to testimonia, i.e., citations of OT Scriptures to show that Jesus is the Messiah. Views 1 and 2 are more likely than view 3.The Greek of Matthew does not read like a mere translation, but such a widespread tradition (with no early dissent) must have some factual basis. Tradition says that Matthew preached for fifteen years in Palestine and then left to evangelize in foreign parts. It is possible that about a.d. 45 he left behind for the Jews who had accepted Jesus as their Messiah a first draft of his Gospel in Aramaic (or just the discourses of Christ), and later made a Greek edition for universal use. A similar thing was done by Matthew’s contemporary, Josephus. This Jewish historian made an Aramaic first draft of his Jewish Wars and then the final form of the book in Greek.

    Moreover, Matthew is written in 3rd person: “And when Jesus passed on from thence, he saw a man sitting in the custom house, named Matthew; and he saith to him: Follow me. And he arose up and followed him” (Mt 9:9). Eusebius (c. 310 CE) wrote that “tradition” is why people accepted that the first book was written by Matthew, the second by Mark: VI.25.4. Among the four Gospels, which are the only indisputable ones in the Church of God under heaven, I have learned by tradition that the first was written by Matthew, who was once a publican, but afterwards an apostle of Jesus Christ, and it was prepared for the converts from Judaism, and published in the Hebrew language. VI.25.5. The second is by Mark, who composed it according to the instructions of Peter, who in his Catholic epistle acknowledges him as a son, saying, ‘The church that is at Babylon elected together with you, salutes you, and so does Marcus, my son.’ [1 Peter 5:13]

    “It is physically impossible for the matthew who wrote the book to be the same as the apostle. That could not have happened, and even God would call you an idiot for saying. it. So if you aren’t in support of my work, god says you’re an idiot.”That should do the trick. You need to jab, and when they parry, thats when you thrust low. And when they’re recovering, you give them the coup de grâce to the head: by the time that last sentence is read, you should have pre-emptively given yourself the best marks possible.Its flawless.

    >My argument is that, Matthew the apostle is not the author of matthew. Correct, they are not the same person.How about “YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BIBLE!”?==>So who DO you think wrote the book of Matthew if it wasnt Matthew? And what makes you think that?We do not know who worte the gospel. Yet, it certainly was not Matthew the apostle otherwise he would have given his own account rather than copy Paul’s and draw off Mark and Q.Not too difficult to work out once you have read the bible.
