Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the Lucan and Johannine pericopes that evidence does not point to a common source, written or oral, for the two here. Luke, though he used Mark, was not satisfied with Mark's depiction of the scene of Christ on the cross, event which was so scandalous, so difficult for Christians to understand. He was concerned to show that, going to and even on the cross, Jesus Christ was not passive, not despairing, but active and confident to the end. John reflects Luke's order of events at two points; in regard to the mention of the crucifixion of the two others immediately after mention of Jesus' crucifixion, and in the mention of Jesus' burial in a new tomb. John recounts no mocking of Jesus on the cross, excluding it on the ground that it was unbecoming at the time of what was at once Jesus' crucifixion and his glorification.
