The Hour Motif in John (AKA Frustration #9380 with the NIV)

While trying to trace the hour motif in John, I’m frustrated (again) with the NIV rendering; rather than simply letting ὥρα be “hour” throughout, they switch from “time” in 2:4; 7:30; 8:20 to “hour” in 12:23, 27 and then back to “hour” in 13:1.
