Why the difference in Crucifixion Time between John and Mark?

Why the difference in Crucifixion Time between John and Mark?

Why the difference in Crucifixion Time between John and Mark? Actually there is none. 6th Hour mentioned by John refers to the Roman time and the Third Hour mentioned by Mark is according to the Hebrew Clock. Mark mentions the exact Crucifixion time of 9 A.M in the Morning, in Hebrew time called the 3rd Hour of the Day. John shows the time of Jesus being taken away to Golgotha as 6th Roman Clock Hour.

John 19 Does not mention Crucifixion TIME, but that He was taken away and He was tortured more before hanging for Atonement for Sin after 3 Hours which also included carrying His Cross to Golgotha.

Apostle John uses Roman Time instead of Hebrew time. Hebrew Day always started from 7 Pm in the Evening to the Morning of the next day. Evening to Morning is reckoned in Genesis account of Creation in 
Genesis 1.

John 19 14 Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he *said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!” 15 So they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate *said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” Mark reveals His exact Crucifixion Time, read Mark 15 The Crucifixion
22 Then they *brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.

23 They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it. 24 And they *crucified Him, and *divided up His garments among themselves, casting]lots for them to decide what each man should take.

25 It was the third hour when they crucified Him. 26 The inscription of the charge against Him read, “THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

The Day Jesus was Crucified the Sunset set for 3 hours between 6A.M to 9 A.M in the Morning a sign of God’s Judgment on Jesus while He bore our sins on the Cross.

In Matthew 27:45 we read of a great miracle that took place during the crucifixion. A strange darkness covered the land for three hours. [See the Clock illustration given earlier in this chapter.] This darkness lasted from the sixth hour (which is _________ o’clock our time) to the ninth hour (which is ________ o’clock our time)! This is usually the brightest time of the day when the sun is the highest! In the Bible, darkness is often a symbol of the judgment of God. For example, one of the judgments on the land of Egypt was darkness (Exodus 10:21-22).

See also Zephaniah 1:15. It was during these three hours on the cross that God Himself was judging His Son and punishing Him for the sins which we have done.

Why was the cross of Christ so terrible? Many men were crucified just as Christ was, and most of these men remained on the cross much longer than Christ did. Also there have been people who were tortured and put to death by means and methods even worse than crucifixion. Other individuals have had to greatly suffer for years as a result of an injury or illness or disease before death finally came What was so terrible about the death of Christ?

If we think only of the physical sufferings that Christ went through, then we are missing the whole point. When Jesus looked ahead to the cross, what was it that He dreaded the most (Mark 14:36 and John 18:11)? Circle the correct answer:

a. The nails that would pierce His hands and feet
b. The spear that would pierce His side
c. The agony of being suspended on a cross for about six hours 9 A.M to 3 P.M
d. The cup which the Father would give Him to drink

According to Christ’s own words in Matthew 27:46, what was the most terrible part of the crucifixion experience? Circle the correct answer:

a. Being nailed to the cross by the Romans
b. Being mocked and reviled by the unbelieving Jews
c. Being tortured by the weight of His own body coming down on the nails
d. Being forsaken and abandoned by Almighty God

Christ was not overly concerned about what the Roman soldiers would do to Him, but He was greatly concerned about what God the Father would do to Him because of your sins and mine! In Isaiah chapter 53 we learn about some of the things that God did to the Lord Jesus:

Isaiah 53:24: God struck Him and afflicted Him.
Isaiah 53:6: God laid on Him all of our iniquities (sins).
