Top best answers to the question «When was the gospel of john published»
The Gospel of Luke was written about fifteen years later, between 85 and 95. Scholars refer to these three gospels as the "synoptic gospels", because they "see" things in the same way. The Gospel of John, sometimes called "the spiritual gospel," was probably composed between 90 and 100 CE.
- Around 200 AD, Irenaeus said that the Gospel of John had been published by John the disciple of the Lord. By the time, John was living in Ephesus which is in Asia. Polycarp, who was a disciple of Jesus, had disclosed this information to Irenaeus. Papias is also cited to have been a witness to the fact that John authored the Gospel of John.
John reached its final form around AD 90–110, although it contains signs of origins dating back to AD 70 and possibly even earlier. Like the three other gospels, it is anonymous, although it identifies an unnamed "disciple whom Jesus loved" as the source of its traditions.
