Chronological Order of Gospel Events

Below is a chronological outline of the gospels.  Every chronological order may be different because some gospel events are very hard to place into a timeline.  For instance, Jesus would have often taught the same sermon multiple times.  What one gospel records as taking place earlier in Jesus' ministry may be repeated later in His ministry and recorded by a different author. 

Other events are just difficult to place in order because of a lack of context to compare with the other events.  This is particularly true with events from John that are not found in the other gospels.  In all, this will give you a good outline of the order of the events in the gospel.  It may not be 100% accurate but no one can be certain any such outline is.  It is nevertheless a valuable resource in studying the gospels and placing certain events in order.
