"There is other evidence which is, to my mind, even stronger. The Quartodecimans of Asia, in the middle of the second century and later, defended their practice in regard to the observance of Easter by claiming that in this they followed the example of John who had resided amongst them."

"The Quartodeciman observance in Asia Minor is a topic closely connected with the foregoing. That was on the 14th of Nisan; but what did it commemorate? Many scholars have thought that it was the crucifixion of Jesus. If this be so, it is a direct argument for the interpretation of the Fourth Gospel, which would make the crucifixion on the morning of the day when the lamb was killed and eaten, and at the same time confirms the evangelist's accuracy on this point."
