Acts 8. Romans Ephesians Philemon Not until the eighteenth century did the question of authorship become an issue. More recently, since Matthew does rely heavily on Mark's Gospel see "Date and Location of Composition" below , some scholars have discarded the idea that the author was one of the twelve apostles.
On the other hand, Papias also said that Mark was the interpreter of Peter,  and therefore, the apostle Matthew would not have a problem with deferring to the early leader of the church.
But before a date can be decided, its relation to the Gospel of Mark must first be addressed. If Mark was written first, then Matthew must have a later date and vice-versa. The most widely accepted hypothesis is that both Matthew and Luke used Mark as a source for various reasons. Matthew even reproduced about ninety percent of Mark, while Luke reproduced about sixty percent.
This date allows time for Matthew to have access to Mark's Gospel, and suggests that he completed the Gospel before the destruction of the temple in AD 70, because it would seem strange for the author not to mention this event in light of chapter AD Though dating the Gospel maybe difficult or complicated, it is even more problematic to determine where Matthew wrote the Gospel. Most scholars conclude that Matthew was written in either Palestine or Syria because of its Jewish nature.
Antioch of Syria is usually the most favoured because many in the early church dispersed there Acts , Another reason for favouring Antioch is that the earliest reference to Matthew's Gospel was found in Ignatius' the Bishop of Antioch Epistle to the Smyrnaeans ca. It is quite obvious and widely accepted that Matthew was written to the Jews.
For one, he focuses on the fulfillment of the Old Testament, even quoting from it sixty-two times, which is more than any other Gospel writer. Secondly it is interesting that Matthew does not explain Jewish culture like the other evangelists cf. Mark , John , which also adds to the argument that he is writing to Jews. Matthew uses the phrase, "kingdom of heaven," the only author, in fact, to use this phrase which can be considered as a "reverential Jewish expression"  -a term appropriate to a Jewish audience. His purpose in writing to the Jews was to show them that Jesus of Nazareth was the expected messiah and both his genealogy and his resurrection were legitimate proofs of this.
The overriding theme shows Jesus as the messiah, but there are also several minor themes, some of which directly relate to the major theme. These other themes include the kingdom of heaven, the conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders, Jesus as the fulfiller of the law, and the king who will return in the clouds. The structure of Matthew's Gospel is very remarkable.

The Gospel can be divided into three parts: the prologue - , the body , and the epilogue Matthew constructed his body around five distinct discourses: the Sermon on the Mount , the Commissioning of the Apostles , Parables about the Kingdom , Relationships in the Kingdom , and the Olivet Discourse - This leaves the third discourse Parables about the Kingdom as the focal point.
