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?
