RE: [XTalk] chronological order and Pilate
- Patrick Maille, greetings.
I am doing research on sabbatical years and recently read something on the
subject which I copied for my notes.
I am quoting Nikos Kokkinos who writes: Hoehner admits that the incident of
the shields could have taken place at any time between 32 and 36; although
he would have preferred a later date [Hoehner, Herod Antipas, 180] he
settles for 32 since he places the Crucifixion in 33. Yet Pilate set up the
shields in honor of Tiberius, who was celebrating his 75th birthday in 33. .
Nikos Kokkinos further writes: In Egesippus, the Latin version of Josephus's
works, the Crucifixion of Jesus follows the uprising of the Samaritan
prophet, but in the Greek version of Antiquities the crucifixion preceded
this uprising (18:63-64; cf. 85-87). That the two events occurred close
together in the year 36 may explain Egesippus's confused chronological
arrangement. Additionally, the Crucifixion in Ant. immediately follows the
episode of Pilate's aqueduct (18:63-64; cf. 6-62), but is represented in the
Jewish Wars as prior to the time of Agrippa I's journey to Rome in 36
(2:175-77; cf. 178).

Can someone tell me the sequential order of Pilate's
actions in Josephus (the shields in the Temple and the
aquaduct project with Temple funds) and the Gospels.
I am curious as to which occurred first and how the
order is determined.
Thanks in advance.
