Your points are well taken. However, the man was known as a wisdom teacher, despite a lot of what one reads in the Gospels that would lead to your conclusion. If he was indeed a wisdom teacher, then one purpose of his healings and such was to gain attention to his teachings. Another may have been to show the potential within the human spirit for doing good.

So if he indeed was a wisdom teacher, that suggests to me that much within the Gospel of Matthew, e.g., were the falsified teachings of its author, such as: Don't save up any money, Don't worry about tomorrow or where your next meal is coming from, Don't resist evil, Turn the other cheek and invite further abuse, Give to others whatever they ask for without question, The first is last, Gentiles are as lowly as tax collectors, etc., etc.

It would be nice to know what the man's original teachings had been, if he had indeed been a wisdom teacher.
