The New Testament gospels were all written anonymously, which means we do not really know who wrote any of them. Beginning with Mark's Gospel, the earliest New Testament gospel to be written, all the gospels were written in Greek Koine. The Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on Mark, with further sayings material attributed to Jesus being taken from the hypothetical 'Q' document. Last of all came John's Gospel, which was loosely based on Luke, with some material taken direct from Mark.

1. The life and teachings of the Church- took place around A.D. 28-302. Oral Tradition- The New Testament had to be written down because many of the apostles were dying ~ happened around A.D. 653. The Written Gospels- the gospels were written between A.D. 60s and 90s
Modern theologians see three stages in the development of the gospels.The life, mission and resurrection of JesusThe post-resurrection teaching of the apostlesThe actual writing of the gospels by the evangelists.Those who look at the development of the gospels in three clear-cut stages often see the third stage as the most important for Christianity, because the gospels are not so much literal histories but reflections on the meaning of Jesus.Some scholars would not find the three-stage model very useful, because it may encourage assumptions about the linear progression of early Christianity.the three stages are:1. events: jesus' life death and resurrection2. oral tradition:stories about jesus are spread by word of mouth3. written texts: the good news is written down to preserve it and make it easier to educate the growing number of chistians.
No, the Gospels were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Traditionalists would say that two of the gospels, those of Matthew and John, were written by eyewitnesses to the mission of Jesus, and that the authors simply wrote down what they had seen and experienced. However scholars say that the four gospels were written anonymously and only attributed to the disciples whose names they now bear later in the second century. Moreover, scholars say that the gospels could not have been written by eyewitnesses to the events they portray, or even by close associates of eyewitnesses to those events.From very early times, Church leaders were aware of a literary dependence among the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. There was simply no other explanation for the gospels using exactly the same words in the Greek language. They made the assumption that Matthew was written first, with Mark andLukebased on Matthew. Modern scholars, using more advanced analyses, say that Mark was the first gospel and that Matthew and Luke were each independently based on Mark, with additional sayings material from the hypothetical 'Q' document. They also say that John's Gospel was inspired by Luke, with some material taken direct from Mark. So the three major stages in the formation of the gospels are:The development of Mark's Gospel, based on unknown sources;The development of Matthew's Gospel and Luke's Gospel, based on Mark's Gospel and the hypothetical Q document;The development of John's Gospel, based on Luke's Gospel and, to a lesser extent, Mark's Gospel.

A "CrossRoads minicourse" describes Three Stages of Gospel Development as:The ministry of JesusPostresurrectional preaching of the apostlesThe Writing of the Gospels by the EvangelistsThe minicourse says 'The Evangelists didn’t write the Gospels to give us “histories,” as we use the term. They wrote so readers would “come to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God” (John 20:31)'. In other words, the gospels may not always be based on actual events or sayings of Jesus, but at least they were written to convince their audiences.A popular view, at least in the twentieth century, was that the gospels were finally written down because those who had experienced the message of Jesus were becoming old and it was feared that the stories would be lost unless they were written down soon. This implies that the Evangelists wrote the gospels as accurate "histories", as we understand the term - a view that would be in direct contradiction to the statement above.The gospels were originally anonymous and were actually written much later than formerly believed. The first New Testament gospel to be written was Mark's Gospel, now believed to have been written approximately 70 CE. We know the other gospels were written much later, because the Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on Mark and the Gospel of John appears to have been loosely based on material from both Mark and Luke.Thus, Matthew, Luke and John could not have been written until Mark had been written and was circulating in Christian communities. Mark's Gospel appears to have been influenced by Paul's epistles, so this gospel could not have been written until after the time of Paul. This places us in the final stage of gospel formation.
Circa 700 AD
Quite a few gospels are known to have been written, most of them attributed to various of the apostles although biblical scholars say that none of the apostles really wrote any of the gospels. Only four gospels were selected for inclusion in the Bible - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
