Please, can you interpret by reading the first sentence that it was Matthew who edited and added to his original record?

(1342.1) 121:8.6 Matthew’s original record was edited and added to in A.D. 40 just before he left Jerusalem to engage in evangelistic preaching. It was a private record, the last copy having been destroyed in the burning of a Syrian monastery in A.D. 416.

Also please, what "original record" are they referring to? In the previous paragraph we read about a "certain record":


(1341.6) 121:8.5 The Apostle Matthew did not write this Gospel. It was written by Isador, one of his disciples, who had as a help in his work not only Matthew’s personal remembrance of these events but also a certain record which the latter had made of the sayings of Jesus directly after the crucifixion. This record by Matthew was written in Aramaic; Isador wrote in Greek. There was no intent to deceive in accrediting the production to Matthew. It was the custom in those days for pupils thus to honor their teachers.



Thank you!

I think a "certain" record just means one that was secondary to the larger story "about Jesus" told in his "original" record which survived for some centuries. The secondary record was just parables and teachings or the words of Jesus as Matthew remembered them - a record of the red letters or words of Christ then placed into the gospel(s).
