comment Acts 20:28 variants, what are the six variants?
I don't think it's better - it's just different. According to their website: "the selection of passages for the apparatus has undergone considerable revision. The evaluations of all sets of variants cited in the apparatus have been reconsidered."

comment Acts 20:28 variants, what are the six variants?
As a side note, I would be interested to know whether UBS4 has all of those readings. My understanding is that the critical apparatus underwent a considerable revision in the fourth edition.

comment When was Jesus's body 'broken'?
Great answer - I agree (after quickly checking my UBS), and it seems to confirm the "interpretive gloss" statement made in the IB.

comment How does John use the Feast of Dedication in John 10?
After a bit more digging, most people who say Ezekiel 34 was a lesson assigned on the Feast of Dedication (that is most people who reference their sources!) refer to Aileen Guilding's 1960 book "The Fourth Gospel and Jewish worship". Unfortunately, without a copy on hand (and no good libraries near by), I am unable to go any further and find out what she bases her claim on.

comment How does John use the Feast of Dedication in John 10?
A quick Google search showed up levhashem.org/documents/hanukkah.html (see the third to last paragraph). I wonder if we only know of the tradition because of John 10, or if this is recorded elsewhere?
