The gospels of Matthew , Mark , and Luke are referred to as the synoptic Gospels because they include many of the same stories, often in a similar sequence and in similar or sometimes identical wording. They stand in contrast to John , whose content is largely distinct. This strong parallelism among the three gospels in content, arrangement, and specific language is widely attributed to literary interdependence. Broadly speaking, the synoptic gospels are similar to John: all are composed in Koine Greek , have a similar length, and were completed within a century of Jesus' death. They also differ from non-canonical sources, such as the Gospel of Thomas , in that they belong to the ancient genre of biography,   collecting not only Jesus' teachings, but recounting in an orderly way his origins, his ministry and miracles, and his passion and resurrection. In content and in wording, though, the synoptics diverge widely from John but have a great deal in common with each other.
Table I is a chronological overview. Table III gives the Deuterocanonical books. Table IV gives the books of the New Testament, including the earliest preserved fragments for each. The tables are in chronological order in reference to how they read in the Bible. This table summarises the chronology of the main tables and serves as a guide to the historical periods mentioned. The five books are drawn from four "sources" distinct schools of writers rather than individuals : the Priestly source , the Yahwist and the Elohist these two are often referred to collectively as the "non-Priestly" source , and the Deuteronomist.
