What day was Jesus crucified, Passover or the day before?

JW:

Bible scholar Bart Ehrman points out the following contradiction in Jesus, Interrupted:

Per "Mark" Jesus is crucified on Passover day:

Mark 14:16 And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

Per "John" Jesus is crucified on the day before Passover day:

John 19:14 Now it was the Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he saith unto the Jews, Behold, your King!

When was Jesus crucified, the third hour or the sixth hour?

JW:

Bible scholar Bart Ehrman points out the following contradiction in Jesus, Interrupted:

Per "Mark" Jesus is crucified at the third hour:

Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

Per "John" Jesus is crucified at the sixth hour:

John 19:14-16

14 Now it was the Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he saith unto the Jews, Behold, your King!
15 They therefore cried out, Away with [him], away with [him], crucify him! Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
16 Then therefore he delivered him unto them to be crucified.

Explanation for why "John" contradicts "Mark" as to when Jesus was crucified

JW:

Bible scholar Bart Ehrman points out why "John" contradicts "Mark" as to when Jesus was crucified in Jesus, Interrupted:

"John" is making a theological statement that Jesus is the "lamb" of God:

John 1:35-36

35 Again on the morrow John was standing, and two of his disciples;
36 and he looked upon Jesus as he walked, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God!

"John's" Jesus is crucified/sacrificed at the same time that the lambs would have been slaughtered for Passover in 1st century Jerusalem, the day before Passover.
