      Speaking for myself, I pretty much accept the work of Birger Gerhardsson on this pericope. It is a kind of midrash on Deut 6, reflecting the life of Jesus and its major challenges, in a thoroughly Jewish perspective of the obedience son of God, Jesus being identified as the new Israel. Thoroughly compatible with Matthew's genealogy, and with the theology of Matthew as a whole (particularly the passion narrative).

      Can anyone here tell me what the Griesbachian position is (let alone if
      there here is one, or only one) on the origin of Matt. 4:1-11? What
      source or sources, if any, do Griesbachians claim Matthew employed in
      constructing his Wilderness testing story? What are the arguments that
      Griesbachian's use to show that their position on this matter is valid?
