      I believe there are some agreements in the Feeding scene and in the
      description of Jesus' anointing where pistic nard shows up in the Markan
      and Johannine accounts.

      Does Brown discuss the question? I would be surprised if Percival
      Gardner-Smith (/St. John and the Synoptic Gospels/ [Cambridge: Cambridge
      University Press, 1938]) doesn't do so.
