Taking an interdisciplinary approach to dating the fourth gospel, this talk contends that arguments for a pre-70 AD dating based on archaeology and history relating to John 5:2 are unsound, covers recent moves to date the gospel manuscript fragment Papyrus 52 to the late second or third century AD, and investigates the authorship and compositional history of the last gospel.
