Dating books of the new testament written
Welcome to the Christianity--Stack Exchange, by the way!
According the Holman Handbook of the Bible, probable dates for each of the books of the NT is as follows: I combed through the Holman Handbook of the Bible to pull out a possible chronology.
New Testament (n.b., this is a "higher chronology" than you will find elsewhere = dates are earlier; numbers in bold represent the traditional New Testament English order; parenthetical bold numbers are the traditional order in the Bible overall): series (wherein a verse by verse exegesis of the entire book).
Original translations of specific verses from throughout the Bible can be found in the Translation Index.
However, in the court of public opinion the testimony of several hundred New Testament scholars is strong evidence and far outweighs the opinions of radical scholars, skeptics and nonbelievers. Permission to copy this data for written publications or classes can be obtained by writing Gary Butner at(1) John Mark - John was his Hebrew name and Mark his Latin name.(2) Author unknown.
The latter groups seek to discredit the Gospel accounts, and create another Jesus they claim was produced by legends over a long time frame. Opinions include Luke, Paul, Barnabas, Apollos, Priscilla and Aquila.(3) John the Apostle or John the Elder. (4) There is a pronounced difference between scholars for the book of James, and so we have excluded the scholars with higher dates from Modified James.
For my purposes I will look at the most relevant information from before A. Unfortunately, the questions of New Testament authorship and dating are not cut and dried. There is substantial variation in the writings of the church fathers.
The church fathers did not have the current understanding of history and authorship. To determine New Testament authorship as best we can, we use the earliest of the patristic sources augmented by the internal evidence of the New Testament.
We must understand as much as we can about the authors of the New Testament and when they wrote it.This area of discussion is one where charity, grace, and humility are called for above all.Sons of Korah wrote Psalms 42, 44-49, 84-85, 87; Asaph wrote Psalms 50, 73-83; Heman wrote Psalm 88; Ethan wrote Psalm 89; Hezekiah wrote Psalms 120-123, 128-130, 132, 134-136; Solomon wrote Psalms 72, 127.Much will be uncertain; but this we will know; and this is what we need in order to continue our investigation of scripture and Christian history.Much of the information we have about the authors of the New Testament comes from the church fathers, the leaders of the church in the post-apostolic age.
