Mark: 8
27JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES set out for the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, 'Who do men say I am?' 28They answered, 'Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, others one of the prophets.' 29'And you,' he asked, 'who do you say I am?' Peter replied: 'You are the Messiah.' 30Then he gave them strict orders not to tell anyone about him.

Matthew: 16
13WHEN HE CAME to the territory of Caesarea Philippi, Jesus asked his disciples, 'Who do men say that the Son of Man is?' [Some witnesses read: that I, the Son of Man, am.] 14They answered, 'Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.' 15'And you,' he asked, 'who do you say I am?' 16Simon Peter answered: 'You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.' 17Then Jesus said: 'Simon son of Jonah, you are favoured indeed! You did not learn that from mortal man; it was revealed to you by my heavenly Father. 18And I say this to you: You are Peter, the Rock; and on this rock I will build my church, and the forces of death shall never conquer it. [Or: the gates of death shall never close upon it.] 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; what you forbid on earth shall be forbidden in heaven, and what you allow on earth shall be allowed in heaven.' 20He then gave his disciples strict orders not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.

Luke: 9
18One day when he was praying alone in the presence of his disciples, he asked them, 'Who do the people say I am?' 19They answered, 'Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, others that one of the old prophets has come back to life.' 20'And you,' he said, 'who do you say I am?' Peter answered, 'God's Messiah.' 21Then he gave them strict orders not to tell this to anyone.

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.
