This error sets many reader upon a trail they do not belong...they are reading someone else's mail. Just as you likely do not believe the Prophet Isaiah is writing to a Gentile, what made you think Matthew was writing to a Gentile? Paul says, "I am writing to Gentile believers as the apostle sent to the Gentiles." Well, now, that really is to us. Read from there on BEFORE you look back. Then go re-read the entire Book with Gentile eyes looking over the shoulders of the First Group...the Jews.
