Data content collected and input by Gary Butner, Th.D. Original spreadsheet designed by R.A.Sickler, Ph.D.

(1) John Mark - John was his Hebrew name and Mark his Latin name.
(2) Author unknown. Opinions include Luke, Paul, Barnabas, Apollos, Priscilla and Aquila.
(3) John the Apostle or John the Elder. The evidence is strongest for the apostle.
(4) There is a pronounced difference between scholars for the book of James, and so we have excluded the scholars with higher dates from Modified James.
