7 We said unto him: Lord, after how many years shall this come to pass ? He said unto us: When the hundredth part and the twentieth part is fulfilled, between the Pentecost and the feast of unleavened bread, then shall the coming of my Father be (so Copt.: When an hundred and fifty years are past, in the days of the feast of Passover and Pentecost, &c., Eth.: . . . (imperfect word) year is fulfilled, between the unleavened bread and Pentecost shall be the coming of my Father, Lat.).

If the End is predicted after 150 years the presumed life of Jesus of Nazareth, then the Gospels have been written around 150 CE, because otherwise the apocalypticism couldn't figure still in the Epistle of the Apostles.
