The article states that a Andrew T. Lincoln, a Briish bible scholar has declared that this took place after Jesus's return to Galilee. I know there is a school that assumes John's chronology is wrong when it conflicts with the other gospels, but in this case there is no conflict. The text actually states: (KJV, but all other texts seem to agree)
39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. 40So when the Samaritans were come to him, they sought him that he would tarry with them: and he stayed there two days. 41And many more believed because of his own word; 42And said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of your saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.
43Now after two days he departed there, and went into Galilee. 44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went to the feast
So this is directly contradicted by the text. I don't think this is original research on my part. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moheroy (talk • contribs) 05:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
