    I don't care that you don't care!
    But I'm puzzled as to why you take the time to tell us?

    Who is "us"?

    I tell you, because you asked. The answer is that it's not important.

    As I said once before, we don't really have a need to know. It makes zero difference to the bigger purpose of the Gospels.

    "Us" is anyone who reads this thread.
    If I was asking you personally I would have PMed you.
    If you believe it's expected for you to "tell me because I asked" then using
    the same 'logic' you are presumably expecting everyone who frequents this
    forum to reply? (Or are you just special?)

    And finally, regarding a 'need to know' it is a valid and interesting
    historical question. As interesting as discovering when any religious
    texts were written.

    (And this thread is not about the purpose of the gospels)

    Also, determining who wrote the Gospels and why would be an important step
    in determining what their purpose was.

    Mark may have started first, but he obviously did not finish first.

    Yeah, you'd hate to listen to bible scholars, and their suggestions that instill ... doubt (😲) about the authorship of certain books.

    Mark came first in a foot race, but he had to run away naked, John came last in a foot race, but it was to Peter, who reached the tomb of Christ first, being a younger man.

    Matthews gospel is considered to have come first (41CE) , then Lukes, then Marks then Johns (98CE) 😀

    sigh. . . a sad reflection of that type of Christianity which prizes faith'n'love above knowledge and reason

    'I dont care, I have my faith', - - - slaps his forehead

    Is that a JW stance?
    I thought all the gospels were later than that and that Matt & Luke were
    bad copies of Mark.

    No, there is the retelling of the same accounts, but also differences. Luke is a superlative Gospel but Matthews is considered to have been first, if you like I can find out the reason why its considered to have come first, but I have no time at present. I am sure jaywill posted a video link once in which a lecture was given detailing just how early the gospels were actually considered to have been written.

    Got a source for that? From what I have a read Mark's Gospel came first.
