 Gospel According to Matthew
Matthew is generally held to have been written about AD 80, although scholars have argued for dates as early as 65 and as late as 100.
He wrote the Gospel of Christ according to his own plans and aims, and from his own point of view, as did also the other "evangelists." As to the time of its composition, there is little in the Gospel itself to indicate.
The main feature of this Gospel may be expressed in the motto, "I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." As to the language in which this Gospel was written there is much controversy.

In his view, there are three sections in the Gospel of Matthew, headed by superscriptions, corresponding to three phases in the appearance of "Jesus Messiah." These superscriptions are intended to indicate the broadest divisions of the gospel, functioning as major transitions and summaries of the content of the sections that follow.
If one assumes that the author of the Gospel of Matthew used the Gospel of Mark as a source (rather than assuming that Mark is an abbreviation of Matthew or that they are literarily independent), it is impossible to hold that the Greek Gospel of Matthew is a translation of an Aramaic or Hebrew original.
On the assumption that Matthew would not include sayings of Jesus that were not longer relevant to his readers, it might be argued that the Gospel of Matthew was written before the destruction of the temple (70 CE).

Ambrose: Observe that Matthew does not name both without a meaning; for though the object of his writing only required the mention of Phares, yet in the twins a mystery is signified; namely, the double life of the nations, one by the Law, the other by Faith.
His first proposition was, Matthew begins thus, “When she was espoused.” Behold, he says, you have her espoused, but as ye say, not yet committed; but surely not espoused for any other reason than as being to be married.
For that which Matthew the Evangelist says, “Shall have in her womb,” the Prophet who is foretelling something future, writes, “shall receive.” The Evangelist, not foretelling the future but describing the past, changes “shall receive,” into “shall have;” but he who has, cannot after receive that he has.

Miller is the author of many books and articles, including Healing the Jewish-Chriatian Rift, The Hidden Gospel of Matthew (Skylight Paths), The Gospel of Thomas: A Guidebook for Spiritual Practice (Skylight Paths), Dialogue and Disagreements: Franz Rosenzweig's Contribution to Jewish-Christian Dialogue (University Pree of America), and Wisdom of the Carpenter (Ulysses Press).
Using Miller's excellent translation of Matthew's gospel, Bernstein identifies and clarifies for Christian readers the Jewish heart, soul, and practices of Jeshu (Jesus) and points out the many instances where Matthew's biases are anachronistic and/or corrupt historical reality.
This packed, lucid little book belongs to that admirable kind of scholarship in which the labor of acquiring Greek and Coptic, Hebrew and Aramaic, the exhausting study of ancient fragments of text against the background of an intimate knowledge of religious history, can be represented as a spiritual as well as an intellectual exercise.

 Amazon.com: The Gospel of Thomas: A Guidebook For Spiritual Practice: Books: Ron Miller,Stevan L. Davies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
This guidebook, using Stevan Davies's translation, introduces the gospel and encourages readers to "become Jesus' twin," an image based on the name Thomas, which means "twin." Each chapter includes commentary on five to six sayings, along with a section on practice and questions for reflection.
Of the books written on the Thomas Gospel, I highly recommend Professor Stevan Davies' book on the same subject (also by Skylight Publishers) as it is the only definitive work presenting the full translation as-is with side annotations, stopping short of jumping onto the bandwagon of deciphering Jesus' cryptic sayings in an overly simplistic manner.
The Gospel of Thomas: A Guidebook for Spiritual Practice is an academic and spiritual commentary upon the Gospel of Thomas, a text discovered in Egypt in 1945 that brings new light to Jesus Christ's teachings, offering insights in following in His footsteps and in effect, becoming His "twin".

 The Hidden Gospel - by Neil Douglas Klotz
Considering all that we know from the witnesses of the canonical Gospels, from non-canonical books like the Gospel of Thomas, and from the various hypothetical textual strands identified by scholars, there is much that Jesus could have said and done.
In addition to the Aramaic version of the canonical Gospels, I have also referred to sections of the Gospel of Thomas, which most scholars now believe was also originally collected and composed by Eastern Jewish Christians in Syria in the first century.
The Hidden Gospel is a bit different, in that it is meant to be read from beginning to end.

 Gospel of Matthew: Discourses
Felix Just, S.J. The Gospel according to Matthew begins by identifying Jesus as "the son of David, the son of Abraham" (1:1), thus indicating his Davidic/royal and Abrahamic/Jewish heritage, respectively.
Admittedly, the name "Moses" is not directly used in a Christological Title, nor can Jesus be called the "Son of Moses," since Jesus belongs to the Tribe of Judah, while Moses belongs to the Tribe of Levi (see a chart of Abraham's Descendants).
Most biblical scholars today believe that Mark is the oldest Gospel, and that Matthew used Mark's Gospel as one of his written sources (see the Synoptic Problem).

 Catena Aurea - Gospel of Matthew (ii.xxvii)
Jerome: In the Gospel entitled ‘according to the Hebrews,’ Barabbas is interpreted, ‘The son of their master,’ who had been condemned for sedition and murder.
If indeed Matthew had said that both the thieves had reviled the Lord, there would be some discrepancy; but when he says merely, “The thieves,” without adding ‘both,’ we must consider it as that common form of speech in which the singular is signified by the plural.
For indeed from the beginning eclipses of the sun have happened in their proper seasons; but such an eclipse as would be brought about by the ordinary course of the seasons could only be at such time as the sun and moon come together, when the moon passing beneath intercepts the sun’s rays.

This is close to Matthew, where the cruel Herod, attempting to destroy Israel's king, employs foreign magi who in the event bring only honour to the king's rival.
The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy, 7, and Theophylact must be right in identifying the magi's star with an angel, and one may compare the angelic guide of the Exodus (Ex 23:20,23; 32:34)...
