are surprisingly similar."
It's a delightful cartoon and I suspect I will be using it in class too. But it's clearly not a cartoon designed by an academic. The saintly character on the right is the eponymous "Young Jesus" and an academic would never make Jesus contemporary with the evangelists. And New Testament scholars would not dream of characterizing John's Gospel as "surprisingly similar" to the Synoptics. This teacher might just deserve an F herself for not paying careful enough attention to the contents of the evangelists' book reports. Unless, of course, the younger author of the Fourth Gospel was inclined to be somewhat more "Synoptic" than he became in his maturity.
