See also: Matthew 16:28-17:2
Matthew and Mark was counting the number of days since the end of Jesus’ sayings at this place. Luke, on the other hand, was counting the number of days since the beginning of Jesus’ sayings at this place, which is why Luke says “about an eight days after these sayings.”
For instance, if we held a revival from Monday to Wednesday, how many days after the revival is Saturday? If we reckon by the end of the revival, it is 3 days, but if we reckon by the beginning, it is 5 days. The same sort of situation applies here.
