katapi HOME Coming Persecutions - Mt.10.16-25  Mk.13.9-13  Lk.21.12-17     | NEB Books | notes

Matthew: 10
16'Look, I send you out like sheep among wolves; be wary as serpents, innocent as doves.
17'And be on your guard, for men will hand you over to their courts, they will flog you in the synagogues, 18and you will be brought before governors and kings, for my sake, to testify before them and the heathen. 19But when you are arrested, do not worry about what you are to say; when the time comes, the words you need will be given you; 20for it is not you who will be speaking: it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking in you.
21'Brother will betray brother to death, and the father his child; children will turn against their parents and send them to their death. 22All will hate you for your allegiance to me; but the man who holds out to the end will be saved. 23When you are persecuted in one town, take refuge in another; I tell you this: before you have gone through all the towns of Israel the Son of Man will have come.
24'A pupil does not rank above his teacher, or a servant above his master. 25The pupil should be content to share his teacher's lot, the servant to share his master's. If the master has been called Beelzebub, how much more his household!

Mark: 13
9'As for you, be on your guard. You will be handed over to the courts. You will be flogged in synagogues. You will be summoned to appear before governors and kings on my account to testify in their presence. 10But before the end the Gospel must be proclaimed to all nations. 11So when you are arrested and taken away, do not worry beforehand about what you will say, but when the time comes say whatever is given you to say; for it will not be you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 12Brother will betray brother to death, and the father his child; children will turn against their parents and send them to their death. 13All will hate you for your allegiance to me; but the man who holds out to the end will be saved.

Luke: 21
12'But before all this happens they will set upon you and persecute you. You will be brought before synagogues and put in prison; you will be haled before kings and governors for your allegiance to me. 13This will be your opportunity to testify; 14so make up your minds not to prepare your defence beforehand, 15because I myself will give you power of utterance and a wisdom which no opponent will be able to resist or refute. 16Even your parents and brothers, your relations and friends, will betray you. Some of you will be put to death; 17and you will be hated by all for your allegiance to me.

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.
