katapi HOME A Tree Known by Its Fruit - Mt.7.15-20  Lk.6.43-44       | NEB Books | notes

Matthew: 7
15'Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage as wolves. 16You will recognize them by the fruits they bear. Can grapes be picked from briars, or figs from thistles? 17In the same way, a good tree always yields is good fruit, and a poor tree bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. 19And when a tree does not yield good fruit it is cut down and burnt. 20That is why I say you will recognize them by their fruits.

Luke: 6
43'There is no such thing as a good tree producing worthless fruit, nor yet a worthless tree producing good fruit. 44For each tree is known by its own fruit: you do not gather figs from thistles, and you do not pick grapes from brambles.

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.
