comment Details on “Western Unical D”?
Interesting. I highly recommend Holmes's book. On the odd pages he provides the English translations, and on the even pages the language concerned (Greek, Latin, etc.), so that readers can see what the Apostolic Fathers wrote during the First and Second centuries.

Please click here for page 741, and then here for page 742. Please note that ONLY the italicized words comprise about 50% of "verbatim text" as is found in John 7:53ff. Thus I had said that Papias "almost cited verbatim" the Pericope Adulterae in the Second Century AD.

@NoahSnyder - Eusebius was referring to fragment #3. You can view fragment #4 by clicking here, and then "look inside" to Page 741. The parallels are VERBATIM.

comment Why does Numbers 29:39 (LXX) refer to “your salvation” instead of “peace offerings”?
@MonicaCellio - Your comment is valid and well taken; however the idea in the contexts at hand is that בְּרִית is implied through "oaths" and "vows," which are parallel in meaning to בְּרִית. In other words בְּרִית is the backdrop of Torah. It is בְּרִית which "saves."

comment Can John's Passion chronology be reconciled with that of the Synoptics?
@MonicaCellio - Thanks. I always take your feedback to heart. I have improved the graph incorporating your suggestions to include an updated reference to the Feast of Unleavened Bread and its significance to the body of Jesus. In fact, I have added some more verses and have incorporated the reference and significance of the Festival of First Fruits as well (16 Nisan). Again, thanks.

comment Explanation of Chronological Disparities between St. John and the Synoptic Gospels Concerning Jesus' Passion
The Passover Lamb was sacrificed on the "Day of Preparation." On the very early hours of this day (14 Nisan) Jesus "OBSERVED" the Passover (in accordance with Ex 12:17-18). Several hours later Judas betrayed him. The same day (early morning hours) he was tried, and then crucified. Before dusk of that very same day (14 Nisan), he was entombed, since Passover was only a few hours away, which "doubled" as a High Sabbath Day (Luke 23:54). Remember: the "first day" of the OBSERVATION of the Feast (14 Nisan) is NOT the "first day" of the Feast itself (15 Nisan) -- and therein lies the confusion.

Okay - I added Mk 14:12; Mk 15:42; and Lk 22:7 to show that the Day of Preparation was the "first day" of the OBSERVATION of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (the 14th of Nisan).
