Matthew is the first book in the N.T. for good reason. The goal of the book is to present Jesus as a continuation and fulfillment of the O.T. Matthew is a Gospel account written by a Jew, to Jews about a Jew. So it’s perfectly within the focus of this book for Jesus to be presented as Messiah, Teacher and Emmanuel.
