I'm glad it made sense! I was a little worried I wasn't clear enough in explaining each route.

I hope my update makes more sense. The distinctions are often subtle, which makes it harder to explain them.

comment Can John's Passion chronology be reconciled with that of the Synoptics?
@Jas3.1 I'm curious why even translations who support your theory still reckon other references incorrectly (such as footnotes claiming John 1:39 is 4 p.m. rather than 10 a.m. following this time scheme)? This isn't a challenge (you can't answer for translators), just an observation. Even so, there are numerous other clear disparities through out the synoptics when compared to John that makes it hard to even place the events in the same year when put on a big timeline of the entire book. Even so, your points are compelling if only the narrow passages dealing with the passion are handled.

comment Can John's Passion chronology be reconciled with that of the Synoptics?
I still have questions, but this is the clearest attempt I've seen yet. Thank you. +1. So you think everything that preceded the sentencing by Pilate happened before 6 A.M in the morning? Also, if we apply this standard of time here, how does that influence other chronologies of additional events in John (I'm not sure)? Just some thoughts

Beyond that I don't really know what I'm looking for. If I did, I wouldn't have asked the question haha

comment How and why did Jesus weep?
Mike attempts to reconcile the chronology of the passages to say there is no contradiction. I actually think there is a contradiction, but it's intentional.
