Chapter Summary

The acclaimers in John's account are not disciples accompanying Jesus towards Jerusalem, but pilgrims from Jerusalem coming to meet him. The solution to the problem of the relationship between Luke and John is rather that each had a different non-Marcan source, which, however, agreed on a number of points. This chapter determines that both Luke's and John's sources were known to them only as isolated passages, accounts of the entry into Jerusalem alone, and not as parts of continuous sources. Luke and John each had a written non-Marcan source at this point, that neither source was more than an isolated fragment, that both are historically reliable insofar as they presuppose Jesus as having already been active in Jerusalem, and that Luke's source presupposes an account of Jesus' movements such as we find not in Luke's but in John's gospel.

Keywords: Jerusalem; Jesus' movements; John's gospel; Luke; non-Marcan source
