    Harris quotation “Matthew and Mark—even John—(are) written by  anonymous writers who write within 60 years of  Jesus’ death. All of them write with passion and  conviction for the purpose of instilling faith in  Jesus and strengthening their churches. We don’t  know who they are—but their writings have stood  the test of time and are being read by us still— imparting faith in Jesus and strengthening the  church.”

    Matthew--Background Consensus view=author unknown; perhaps  a Christian “scribe”— 13:52—And he said to them,  “Therefore every scribe who has  been trained for the kingdom of  heaven is like the master of a  household who brings out of his  treasure what is new and what is  old.”

    Matthew—Background  Date, after Temple’s destruction between 80-90  C.E. 21:41—They said to him, “He will put those wretches  to a miserable death, and lease the vineyard to other  tenants who will give him the produce at the harvest  time.” The miserable death refers either to the final  judgment or to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70  C.E. 22:7—The king was enraged. He sent his troops,  destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.”  This seems to refer to the destruction of Jerusalem  by Titus in 70 C.E.
