Nevertheless, the time required for Luke to receive and incorporate Mark might suggest a mid- to late-60s time frame . This is because Mark is often placed in the 60s . To get a 60s date for Luke, all the Synoptic Gospels need to be placed before the destruction, since his gospel is often seen to be the third one written . In other words, to defend a date in the 60s requires a fairly tight window for the production of each of the Synoptic Gospels . For this pre-Jerusalem-fall date it is noted that the last event Luke discusses is Paul’s imprisonment in Rome .
