katapi HOME The Calming of a Storm - Mk.4.35-41  Mt.8.23-27  Lk.8.22-25     | NEB Books | notes

Mark: 4
35THAT DAY, in the evening, he said to them, 'Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.' 36So they left the crowd and took him with them in the boat where he had been sitting; and there were other boats accompanying him. 37A heavy squall came on and the waves broke over the boat until it was all but swamped. 38Now he was in the stern asleep on a cushion; they roused him and said, 'Master, we are sinking! Do you not care?' 39He stood up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, 'Hush! Be still!' The wind dropped and there was a dead calm. 40He said to them, 'Why are you such cowards? Have you no faith even now?' 41They were awestruck and said to one another, 'Who can this be whom even the wind and the sea obey?'

Matthew: 8
23Jesus then got into the boat, and his disciples followed. 24All at once a great storm arose on the lake, till the waves were breaking right over the boat; but he went on sleeping. 25So they came and woke him up, crying: 'Save us. Lord; we are sinking!' 26'Why are you such cowards?' he said; 'how little faith you have!' Then he stood up and rebuked the wind and the sea, and there was a dead calm. 27The men were astonished at what had happened, and exclaimed, 'What sort of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?'

Luke: 8
22One day he got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, 'Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.' 23So they put out; and as they sailed along he went to sleep. Then a heavy squall struck the lake; they began to ship water and were in grave danger. 24They went to him, and roused him, crying, 'Master, Master, we are sinking!' He awoke, and rebuked the wind and the turbulent waters. The storm subsided and all was calm. 25'Where is your faith?' he asked. In fear and astonishment they said to one another, 'Who can this be? He gives his orders to wind and waves, and they obey 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.
