Murdock’s claim that the Gospels were not composed until the latter part of the second century is without support.

The oldest manuscript we have is a fragment from the Gospel of John and dates to around A. D. 125 (labeled p52 and kept at the John Rylands Library in Manchester, England).

The early Church father, Ignatius (c. A. D. 110), who either knew the apostles or was close to those who did, seems very familiar with the Gospel of Matthew, because of the numerous parallels and apparent quotations from Matthew.

Clement (c. A. D. 95) and Polycarp (c. A. D. 110), who knew the apostles, also make use of Matthew.

2 Clement (c. A. D. 120-140) employs numerous sayings from Matthew, Luke and a few from Mark.

The author of the Shepherd of Hermas (c. A. D. 90-150) almost certainly knew some or all of the four gospels. All of these early Christian writers were from the latter part of the first century through no later than the middle part of the second century.(43)

Therefore there are no respected New Testament critical scholars who embrace her datings.
