The question might sound simple, but the answer isn't. I was trying to find an answer to this question, and as per the answers the Internet gives me, the gospels could have been written anywhere between 50 A.D (or should I say C.E?) to somewhere in the second or third centuries. I am asking this question mainly for links and sources. So, please respond only if you have made a study of this and know good sources and links. Of course, you can get funny if you want to. I have a brilliant sense of humor, and I won't be marking any negatives. :) Cheers and happy mylotting

The bottom line is this, whether they were written 50 years or 100 years CE, they are nothing more than fairy tales for adult chldren. Lash

In which case your BR for this discussion becomes even more incomprehensible. Lash

But grandpa, how do you substantiate your point? I guess it's important because Christians do not take the Gospels to be some kind of fairy tale for adults. If they are fairy tales, ok, but one needs to support one's argument with some evidences. That's my take!

Hi positiveminded, I really don't think anyone knows when it was written, but I can imagine a group of men wiriting it down on a scroll of paper, well it was a story in their days like we tell stories about faries. Tamara
