DIE UUR VAN DIE KRUISIGING EN DAGREKENING IN DIE ANTIEKE

J P Louw

Abstract


The discrepancy between the hour of the day when Jesus was crucified, as reported in Mk 15:25 and Jn 19:14, led to many suggested solutions – one of which argued for a Roman (Mark) and Greek (John) system of counting the hours of the day. Though very attractive and quite popular as a harmonizing device, there is no evidence whatsoever for a distinction. All the data from ancient Greek and Latin texts substantiate a single unified system of counting the hours of the day from sunrise to sunset. However, the Roman legal calendar did differ from that of the Greeks and other ancient peoples
