Price: Free! Words: 169,560. Language: English. Published: November 9, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / New Testament
John’s Gospel is unique. He alone reports on Jesus’ attendance at the three Jewish pilgrim festivals–Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot. He even reports on Jesus’ attendance at Dedication (Hanukkah).
