Matthew: 15
32Jesus called his disciples and said to them, 'I feel sorry for all these people; they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away unfed; they might turn faint on the way.'

Mark: 8
1THERE WAS ANOTHER OCCASION about this time when a huge crowd had collected, and, as they had no food, Jesus called his disciples and said to them, 2'I feel sorry for all these people; they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. 3If I send them home unfed, they will turn faint on the way; some of them have come from a distance.' 4The disciples answered, 'How can anyone provide all these people with bread in this lonely place?' 5'How many loaves have you?' he asked; and they answered, 'Seven.' 6So he ordered the people to sit down on the ground; then he took the seven loaves, and, after giving thanks to God, he broke the bread and gave it to his disciples to distribute; and they served it out to the people. 7They had also a few small fishes, which she blessed and ordered them to distribute. 8They all ate to their hearts' content, and seven baskets were filled with the scraps that were left. 9The people numbered about four thousand. 10Then he dismissed them; and, without delay, got into the boat with his disciples and went to the district of Dalmanutha. [Some witnesses give: Magedan; others give: Magdala.]

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.
