comment How and why did Jesus weep?
@DanO'Day I'm sorry. I meant Noah Snyder. I also think there is a contradiction and harmonization merely obscures the point that John is trying to make. Jesus is crucified at the time the Passover Lambs are being slaughtered.

@DanO'Day Was Jesus as the passover Lamb what you were looking for? And did Mike already answer it?

comment How and why did Jesus weep?
@DanO'Day I should say I wouldn't take this approach with every book in the Bible. But with John I think it's warranted. It's not allegorical or sensus plenior. I would call it spiritual/symbolic. Clement of Alexandria in the second century said that the first three gospels presented the "bodily facts" while John wrote a "spiritual gospel". I've found that the early church recognized what John was doing and saying more than we do today.
