  Gospel Of St Matthew - LoveToKnow 1911
The actual phenomena, however, of this Gospel, and of its relation to sources that have been used in it, cannot be explained consistently with either of the two views just mentioned.
In the Gospel of Luke also, it is true, this same source has been used for the teaching of Jesus.

 USCCB - NAB - Matthew - Introduction
The antitheses of the Sermon (Matthew 5:21-48) both accept (Matthew 5:21-30, 43-48) and reject (Matthew 5:31-42) elements of that law, and in the former case the understanding of the law's demands is deepened and extended.
The time of the latter is unknown (Matthew 24:36, 44), and the disciples are exhorted in various parables to live in readiness for it, a readiness that entails faithful attention to the duties of the interim period (Matthew 24:45-25:30).
Matthew's portrayal of Jesus in his passion combines both themajestic serenity of the obedient Son who goes his destined way in fulfillment of the scriptures (Matthew 26:52-54), confident of his ultimate vindication by God, and the depths of fear and abandonment that he feels in face of death (Matthew 26:38-39; 27:46).

All of the aforementioned texts are distinct from the Gospel of the Ebionites, Gospel of Pseudo-Matthew, and Gospel of the Hebrews.

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 24.
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" [12]—a term appropriate to a Jewish audience.
Matthew constructed his body around five distinct discourses: the Sermon on the Mount (5:1-7:29), the Commissioning of the Apostles (10:1-42), Parables about the Kingdom (13:1-52), Relationships in the Kingdom (18:1-35), and the Olivet Discourse (24:1-25:46).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Gospel of St. Matthew
Gospel of Matthew was a reproduction of his preaching, and this we know, was in Aramaic.
Where Matthew alone quotes the Lord's words, the quotation is sometimes borrowed from the Septuagint (v, 21 a, 27, 38), or, again, it is a free translation which we are unable to refer to any definite text (v, 21 b, 23, 43).

And it is indeed likely that Papias himself closely associated the latter with the Hebrew (or Aramaic) work by Matthew, of which he had been told, since the traditional connexion of this Greek Gospel with Matthew can hardly have begun later than this time.
On the other hand, unexpurgated copies were made in Matthew's lifetime; though the offending passages are duly omitted or softened in his abridgment of his longer work, the Historia Anglorum (written about 1253), the real sentiments of the author must have been an open secret.

After having written a book on the Gospel of Mark, which was the first gospel written around 70 A.D., I have turned my attention to the Gospel of Matthew, the second Gospel, written around 80 A.D.

Readers of the gospel are impressed with certain general characteristics that distinguish it from other writings in the New Testament, one of which is the systematic way in which the contents of the gospel have been arranged.
As the only gospel that makes a direct mention of the church, much of the instruction recorded in Matthew is especially appropriate for particular situations that arose in the Christian churches of the first century.
