katapi HOME Ask, Seek, Knock - Mt.7.7-12  Lk.11.9-13       | NEB Books | notes

Matthew: 7
7'Ask, and you will receive, seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened. 8For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
9'Is there a man among you who will offer his son a stone when he asks for bread, 10or a snake when he asks for fish? 11If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him!
12'Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the prophets.

Luke: 11
9And so I say to you, ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened. 10For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
11'Is there a father among you who will offer his son [Some witness insert: a stone when he asks for bread, or ...] a snake when he asks for fish, 12or a scorpion when he asks for an egg? 13If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit [Some witnesses read: a good gift; some others read: good things.] to those who ask him!'

Notes: The most generally known harmonies of the Gospels are based upon the Huck-Lietzmann Synopsis (1936) of the three gospels and Sparks' Synopsis (1964) of four gospels. Many of the passages in these harmonies are too short to display in a useful manner on a web-page.
The katapi New Study Bible Synopsis of the Gospels is based upon the headings displayed in the New Study Bible reference table which in turn follows the headings printed in the United Bible Societies' New Testament in Greek. These sections are more useful for bible study. Columns are arranged so that the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). The harmonies that follow across the web-page are then in the normally accepted order.
For Old Testament references quoted by New Testament authors, you should either go back to the passage listing web-page and select the link on the 'version' column; or click on the column heading and search through the chapter for the relevant passage; than select the OT passage from the reference column.
