katapi HOME Walking on the Water - Jn.6.16-21  Mt.14.22-27  Mk.6.45-52     | NEB Books | notes

John: 6
16At nightfall his disciples went down to the sea, got into their boat, 17and pushed off to cross the water to Capernaum. Darkness had already fallen, and Jesus is had not yet joined them. 18By now a strong wind was blowing and the sea grew rough. 19When they had rowed three or four miles they saw Jesus walking on the sea and approaching the boat. They were terrified, 20but he called out, 'It is I; do not be afraid.' 21Then they were ready to take him aboard, and immediately the boat reached the land they were making for.

Matthew: 14
22Then he made the disciples embark and go on ahead to the other side, while he sent the people away; 23after doing that, he went up the hill-side to pray alone. It grew late, and he was there by himself. 24The boat was already some furlongs from the shore [Some witnesses read: already well out on the water.], battling with a head-wind and a rough sea. 25Between three and six in the morning he came to them, walking over the lake. 26When the disciples saw him walking on the lake they were so shaken that they cried out in terror: 'It is a ghost!' 27But at once he spoke to them: 'Take heart! It is I; do not be afraid.'

Mark: 6
45As soon as it was over he made his disciples embark and cross to Bethsaida ahead of him, while he himself sent the people away. 46After taking leave of them, he went up the hill-side to pray. 47It grew late and the boat was already well out on the water, while he was alone on the land. 48Somewhere between three and six in the morning, seeing them labouring at the oars against a head-wind, he came towards them, walking on the lake. 49He was going to pass them by; but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought it was a ghost and cried out; 50for they all saw him and were terrified. But at once he spoke to them: 'Take heart! 51It is I; do not be afraid.' Then he climbed into the boat beside them, and the wind dropped. At this they were completely dumbfounded, 52for they had not understood the incident of the loaves; their minds were closed.

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.
