Was Matthew Originally Written in Hebrew?

This guy makes a good case that Matthew was written in Hebrew. It's a long video (2 hours) and covers much more than this one point, but highly recommended if you have an interest in understanding the teachings of Jesus. I'm exhausted and my brain hurts.

One of the evidences he produced is a quote from a disciple of John, Papias, who lived about 60-130 AD, who wrote in the early second century:
Matthew collected the words in the Hebrew language, and each translated them as best he could.
Go watch the video; it's well worth it.
