comment How many days elapsed between Jesus's baptism and his return to Galilee?
@Jas 3.1 ...knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were), 3 He left Judea and went away again into Galilee.” Q: Is Mark 1:8-14 be the same stretch of time as John 1:9 to John 4:2 was?

comment How many days elapsed between Jesus's baptism and his return to Galilee?
@Jas 3.1 Help me with this; I was about to ask a question and found Matthew Miller’s here. In Mark 1:8 John baptizes Jesus. Only a few verses later, in Mark 1:14, John has already been imprisoned, Jesus has returned to Galilee, and Jesus/his disciples are doing the baptizing. I’m thinking those 7 verses cover a long stretch of time. In John 1 to John 2:2, John baptizes Jesus, who then goes to the wedding in Cana. Three chapters later, in John 4, Jesus returns to Galilee, John has been imprisoned and Jesus/the disciples are doing the baptizing. John 4:1-3 “Therefore when the Lord

@Pete At the bottom I implemented "Partial Explanation" with part of the Gary Michuta article. Also, another article focuses on Greek perfect tense and gives the same conclusion (from different Christian beliefs). Thanks.

@Pete It’s too bad Gabriel can’t answer this for you, and that we’re not able to obtain Jesus’ view/choice.

comment Translation of Luke 1:28 “Greetings, favored one!”
Looking at Luke 1:28 only in English Bibles, I'm noticing some considerable differences due to adverbs used (or not used). While some Bibles show only "favored" (NASB, YLT), others have "highly favored" (KJV, ASV); I've also read wording such as "truly blessed" (CEV). While the Bible you're referencing shows only "κεχαριτωμενη", others will show "χαιρε κεχαριτωμενη", and I think just that wording difference will have quite an effect on interpretations here. I'll see what else I'm able to find.
