This article claims that the author of the Gospel of John witnessed Jesus. So either the author of Luke or John is a liar re: Passover. I prefer to believe that Luke is true and John is 100 years after the fact with a vivid imagination. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jerome (talk) March 2007

This comment makes no sense, or at the very least doesn't explain things very well. Yes, John knew Jesus. So how does that make one a liar? I see that the comment did result in a change to the article, but I don't know why. However, I think I'm correct in saying that Mark didn't know Jesus, so was not have been totally accurate. I'll reinstate a modified version. Philip J. Rayment 02:00, 16 January 2008 (EST)
Mark was a protege of Peter; Luke was a protege of Paul. Of the four, Peter was a disiple of Jesus, and Paul (as Saul, prior to his conversion) met Jesus on the Damascus road in the book of Acts; the other two never met Him. John wrote his gospel on the island of Patmos nearly 70 years after he was a Jerome's above rant is still a rant. Karajou 05:28, 16 January 2008 (EST)
