There is reason to believe that the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew was most to the mind of the Hebrew Christians, and that it took different forms in the hands of the sects into which the Jewish Christian church became divided.
Thus the Gospel of the Nazarenes was the Gospel according to the Hebrews, which in all probability had some affinity with the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.
The Gospel of the Ebionites, which seems to have been the same as the Gospel of the Twelve Apostles, was something of a more divergent doctrinal tendency suited to the exclusive and heretical views of that sect.

Compared with the Gospel which bears the name of Matthew, the Gospel of the Hebrews, so far as we can judge by the fragments which remain to us, was less refined in its symbolism, more logical, less subject to certain objections of exegesis, but of a stranger, coarser supernaturalism, more like that of Mark.
If the Hebrew Gospel never bore an author’s name, or rather a title of traditional guarantee, it was the title of “the Gospel of the Twelve Apostles,” sometimes also that of “the Gospel of Peter.” Still, we believe that these names were given later, when Gospels bearing the names of the Apostles came into use.

The gospels of the Nazoraeans, of the Ebionites, and according to the Hebrews.
When it comes to the Ebionite gospel in 30.13, however, he calls it not all very complete (ουχ ολω πληρεστατω), which must indicate that the Nazoraean and the Ebionite gospels were two different texts, despite their both being called according to the Hebrews, and despite the fact that Jerome appears to confuse the two.
This connection between the Diatessaron and the gospel of the Hebrews is perhaps surprising, yet at least one ancient author appears to have regarded the Diatessaron as a harmony of five gospels, perhaps including the Hebrew gospel, instead of merely the canonical four.

 Radical Faith - exploring faith in a changed world
That the Gospel of the Hebrews was judged to contain bad theology doesn't mean, of course, that it did not contain valuable historical evidence.
The existence of these three gospels indicates that there were probably Jewish communities in what we now call Palestine until at least the middle of the second century, and probably much later.
The Gospel is unusual in that it depicts the Holy Spirit as female, probably stemming from the traditional Jewish idea of Wisdom, one of God's most important attributes, as female.

 Did Matthew exist in Hebrew?
The ‘Gospel of Hebrews’ omits the genealogy of Jesus, and it does not record the birth.
Mark’s Gospel is so lean and spare, so lacking in details about Jesus’ life that Jesus’ ministry could only have lasted a little over one year, as we have seen.
In conclusion, the Gospel of Matthew was written separately from the Hebrews gospel; and the writer of Matthew may have borrowed from Hebrews, since it was composed before it.
