55 Did Mary stand close to the crucifixion cross

Now we come to Mr. Mark vs Mr. John

In the Gospel of Mark, Mary Magdalene stood at a distance from the cross when Jesus was crucified. That is, she stood watching from afar

Mark 15:24 Then they crucified him. ... 40 Some women were there, looking on from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of the younger James and of Joseph, and Salome. 41 They had followed Jesus while he was in Galilee and had helped him. Many other women who had come to Jerusalem with him were there also.

But in the Gospel of John, Mary Magdalene stood close to the cross

John 19:16 Then Pilate handed Jesus over to them to be crucified. ... 25 Standing close to Jesus’ cross were his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

Thus Mark vs John.
