Dating of gospels
It was in 70 AD that the Romans destroyed the Jerusalem Temple.The Synoptic Gospels include a prediction by Jesus of the destruction of this temple.
Some would like to date the Gospels in the 50s or 60s.
The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
Since it is impossible for people to predict the future, the Gospels must have been written after the destruction in 70 AD.
Some scholars will let Mark be slightly before the event, when it was obvious that something like this would probably be happening. Since I’m a Christian, I don’t see it as impossible that Jesus could have made such a prophecy.Less time for oral history means less time for legends to develop, and this points to a more reliable gospel message.
