    This is an interesting list. What is your source? It is different from most of what I have studied. Most of the time, I have heard that the Gospel of Luke preceded Matthew and that the Gospel of John was written sometime after 100 CE. It might also be useful to note those letters of Paul which are doubted by most scholars as having actually been written by Paul. I do not have a list handy but I am sure plenty of resources exist to find that information.

    This is a most interesting website. I only wish you might reveal a bit more of yourself. I, too, am a native of Houston but only came to the Epsicopal church in the mid-1970s. I have spent most of my adult years in Austin with a ten year sojourn into Indiana and then back to Austin. I did spend six years back in Houston in the early 1990s. Who knows, we may have crossed paths somewhere along the way.

    Take care, keep up the good work, and God’s blessings and peace be yours, always.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Dating the books of the NT is a fascinating study. Like you, my previous understanding has been turned on its head by recent scholarship. An excellent source for further study is Marcus Borg’s, Evolution of the Word. Borg discusses each NT book in chronological order. This is by no means an exact science but academic opinion is coalescing around these new dates. If you’ve never read the NT chronologically, you’re in for a very interesting time. It would make a great Lenten discipline!

      Thanks too, for mentioning the Pauline Letters. I meant to include a notation and will update the list.

      God’s peace be with you.
