comment What significance does John perceive in the piercing of Christ's side and the flow of blood and water?
A lot of great stuff here. I see the allusion to Eve as an extension of the second theme: the release of the Spirit. There is a tight connection in John's writings between the Spirit, the bride and water, culminating in Rev. 22:17. Do you think there is any significance to the way John interweaves the resurrection narrative in chapter 20 between Mary and the disciples?

comment Is the water jar in John 4:28 a symbol?
Where would something like the twelve stones on the high priest's robe fit in? Do they symbolize anything in your view? Or do the number of stones match the number of tribes by coincidence? Or is there some eschatological truth behind them?

comment Is the water jar in John 4:28 a symbol?
I guess I assumed the standard definition of a symbol as something that stands in for or represents something else. What definition do you consider the OP to be using?

comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
@JonEricson Matthew's account is similar to Mark's and Luke's, but the literary structure doesn't make it quite as obvious and so it would take longer to explain. If you'd like I can add that in as well for completeness; I just thought it would stretch the length of the answer without adding much value.

Hey Matthew, thanks for the answer and welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics! Hope you'll stay around and continue to provide answers like this one.
