katapi HOME The Anointing at Bethany - Mk.14.3-9  Mt.26.6-13  Lk.12.1-8     | NEB Books | notes

Mark: 14
3Jesus was at Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper. As he sat at table, a woman came in carrying a small bottle of very costly perfume, pure oil of nard. She broke it open and poured the oil over his head.

Matthew: 26
6JESUS WAS AT BETHANY in the house of Simon the leper, 7when a woman came to him with a small bottle of fragrant oil, very costly; and as he sat at table she began to pour it over his head. 8The disciples were indignant when they saw it. 'Why this waste?' they said; 9'it could have been sold for a good sum and the money given to the poor.' 10Jesus was aware of this, and said to them, 'Why must you make trouble for the woman? It is a fine thing she has done for me. 11You have the poor among you always; but you will not always have me. 12When she poured this oil on my body it was her way of preparing me for burial. 13I tell you this: wherever in all the world this gospel is proclaimed, what she has done will be told as her memorial.'

Luke: 12
1MEANWHILE, WHEN A CROWD of many thousands had gathered, packed so close that they were treading on one another, he began to speak first to his disciples: 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees; I mean their hypocrisy. 2There is nothing covered up that will not be uncovered, nothing hidden that will not be made known. 3You may take it, then, that everything you have said in the dark will be heard in broad daylight, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the house-tops.
4'To you who are my friends I say: Do not fear those who kill the body and after that have nothing more they can do. 5I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Believe me, he is the one to fear.
6'Are not sparrows five for twopence? And yet not one of them is overlooked by God. 7More than that, even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Have no fear; you are worth more than any number of sparrows.
8'I tell you this: everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God;

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.
