The gospels that bear the names Matthew and John were written by the apostles Matthew and John, respectively. We are not sure whether they wrote them personally or dictated them to a scribe. 

As for the gospels according to Luke and Mark, these were written by the close disciples of Paul and Peter, respectively, named Luke and Mark.
