Note carefully the strictly correct translations following (with my emphasis added):
- “…and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is THE PLACE where one ought to worship” Samaritan woman to Jesus in John 4:20 (Note: not “Jerusalem is the place”)
- “…and the Romans will come and will be taking away from us both THE PLACE and the nation.” Literal translation of John 11:48 where the Chief Priests and Pharisees gathered after the raising of Lazarus. Note that some translations (eg NIV) actually say Temple here although that word is not used.
- ‘This title therefore many of the Jews read, for THE PLACE of the city where Jesus was crucified was near; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, Latin..’ John 19:20 in Darby translation—one of the few that is strictly accurate; the Greek, transliterated says, ‘for near was THE PLACE of the city.’
