On this years Passover Special we invite Dr. Brant Pitre onto the show to discuss his book “Jesus and the Last Supper” and more specifically, his views on the chronology of the Passion. Dr. Pitre has written extensively on what has been termed the “Passover Hypothesis” and reconciles all four Gospel accounts together.
The chronology of the crucifixion is hotly debated every year. In this article, Tim Hegg lays out a chronology that makes the Synoptic Gospels line up with the Gospel of John. Previously, scholars have seen either John or the Synoptics to be wrong. As a result, this has brought the question of whether the New Testament can be claimed to be historically accurate and inerrant. In more recent scholarship, scholars are beginning to realize all four Gospels are harmonious. Most noteworthy, Hegg places John in his first century context.
