comment What, exactly, counts as a “vain repetition” (Matthew 6:7)?
@MattGutting I may answer this later. In the meantime, there's useless/vain repetition "prayer" like a machine might give; there's also very good repetitive prayer per concentration, sincerity, etc. Jesus apparently chose the latter...(e.g. biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+14%3A39&version=NASB)

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
