    Most scholars believe that Mark was the first gospel written and they give it a date of around 50-60 AD. Then Matthew and Luke were written around 60-70 AD. The last was John around the year 90 AD. However, scholars also believe that the gospels may have been written using a collection of saying of Jesus. This is the fabled Q document which may have been around 10-20 years after Jesus' death.

    The first writing of the New Testament was not a gospel but a letter from Paul to the Thessalonians. That letter may have been written around the year 45-50 AD.

    While we don't have the exact dates, a portion of Matthew's gospel was found that dates back to around the year 48. So Matthew was written some time before that. Could have been as early as the year 40, or earlier, who knows?

    The Gospel of John is tgenerally considered to be the latest to have been written - dates for it vary between 80 AD and 95 AD. However it could have been earlier. During the past hundred years, scholarship has been attributing earlier and earlier dates for the Gospels.

    All four were eye-witness accounts.
