The timestamp can be up to two hours different.  Block thus won't always be in chronological order for the timestamp.

Why? (How can this be?)

From the Bitcoin wiki:

Quote
Each block contains a Unix time timestamp. In addition to serving as a source of variation for the block hash, there are also validity checks, that make it more difficult for an adversary to manipulate the block chain.
A timestamp is accepted as valid if it is greater than the median timestamp of previous 11 blocks, and less than the network-adjusted time + 2 hours. "Network-adjusted time" is the median of the timestamps returned by all nodes connected to you.
