The Evidence for the Traditional Authorship of the Gospels

Is there any evidence that Matthew the tax-collector, John Mark, Luke the physician, and John son of Zebedee, wrote the four Gospels of the New Testament other than Papias’ very brief, non-specific statements in 120-130 AD and Irenaeus’ declaration of their authorship at the end of the second century?

Answer:  No.
