Any reason to think that Matthew isn't giving an eyewitness account
here? Sure, he may be using Mark as source material but if he was
there to witness the event for himself he could be adding details
that he saw for himself.
No doubt some of our scholars will have a good laugh with the
suggestion that Matthew wrote Matthew and that it was written prior
to AD 70 within Matthew's lifetime. But there is a good body of
respectable conservative scholarship (scholars who even know the
meaning of "haggadaic midrash") who would agree with this suggestion.
