According to the site the Gospel of Matthew was written by an unknown author. Is this correct?

A mess! Their posted introduction to Matthew is actually the introduction to the Book of Malachi.

This work was composed by an anonymous writer shortly before Nehemiah's arrival in Jerusalem (445 B.C.). Because of the sharp reproaches he was leveling against the priests and rulers of the people, the author probably wished to conceal his identity. To do this he made a proper name out of the Hebrew expression for "My Messenger" (Malachi), which occurs in Malachi 1:1; 3:1.
