First Round is acceptance, and your position.

Just to make a few things clear:

1. This is about Dating only, not authorship, reliability etc.

2. I hold the position that the 4 gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are dated at the very latest 100 AD, I won't be argueing exact dates or try to go any earlier than the 1st century

Thank you

Everything I have heard puts them anywhere from 30 years to about 70 years after the Christ.

Based on information I've gathered, this is basically a truism, as virtually every source I've seen agrees with the resolution. It'd be very hard to argue against it.

I don't know and as far as I know no one really knows so it would be nice to see what kind of evidence and sources can by provided by people interested in the subject.
