  • No. Even the most skeptical of appropriately-accredited scholars do not date ANY of the Biblical Gospels that late. Note: we even have fragments of some of the Gospels radiometrically dated to the second century, i.e. approximately 100 years after the time of Jesus. Given the evidence, it's literally impossible that the first dates to 300 years after the time of Jesus.
  • The average lifespan in that part of the world during that time was only 50-55 years. Some lived well into their 70s, but the fact that children made up a large segment of the statistics skews the timeline back to 50-55.
  • Depends what you mean by "gospel" as there are some fakes and some scrolls, as well as a lot of disputed documents in between. Technically the "oldest" is the book of Adam and Eve from the Hebrew bible.
