Galatians, written around 48-49 A.D. by Paul, is widely considered the earliest book of the New Testament. Also, Thessalonians 1, written by Paul around 50 A.D. is considered to be one of the earliest books of the New Testament (and some scholars consider it to be the earliest).

Paul's letters are likely the earliest writings included in the New Testament.

The synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark, and Luke are considered to have been written shortly after 70 A.D. when the Jewish Temple was destroyed by the Romans. Mark is considered by many to have been written first with Matthew and Luke expanding upon his work, although a few scholars agree with Christian tradition which places Matthew as the first gospel written.

Revelations is most likely the last book of the New Testament, not only in terms of the order in which it appears, but also in terms of its proposed dating.

When was the book of James in the Bible written?

There are indications that the book was written very early and could be one of the earliest of all the New Testament writings. No reference is made to the controversy at that time, over Gentile circumcisionand the Greek (not Hebrew) term "synagogue" is used to designate the meeting place of the church. Most believe that James was written between 45 A.D. and 49 A.D. If James was written in 45 A.D. then it is the earliest written book in the New Testament.


What was the earliest book of the New Testament?

A:Any of several books could be the earliest book of the New Testament. The Book of Hebrews was very possibly the first book of New Testament to be written,as its theology is relatively primitive and it makes no specific mention of Jesus as the historical Jesus of Nazarus.The General Epistle of James could be substantially pre-Christian, or at least proto-Christian. Its teaching is not about the Christian faith, but about the importance of living a moral life, and the arguments for doing so are set forth as common wisdom.Another contender is 1 Thessalonians, probably the earliest book by Paul, although a few scholars think it may have been written in Paul's name after his death.Mark was the earliest of the gospels but, written approximately 70 CE, is undoubtedly later than any of Paul's epistles.
