Matthew is the Author.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Gospel of Matthew (The New International Greek Testament Commentary) (Hardcover)
John's assertion that Matthew is not the author is made because he can make that assertion. Of course any first century student would know that just as we have Kinko's and Staples around on every corner to help us out with our printing needs, first century Rome had the same type of shops around town to help out those who needed to write letters. Of course these people who worked in these shops were well versed in Koine Greek. No mystery here.
