katapi HOME Not Peace, but a Sword: Mt.10.34-39  (Lk.12.51-53  Lk.14.26-27    ) | NEB Index | notes
Matthew: 10
34 'You must not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a young wife against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man will find his enemies under his own roof.
37 'No man is worthy of me who cares more for father or mother than for me; no man is worthy of me who cares more for son or daughter; 38 no man is worthy of me who does not take up his cross and walk in my footsteps. 39 By gaining his life a man will lose it; by losing his life for my sake, he will gain it.
Luke: 12
51 Do you suppose I came to establish peace on earth? No indeed, I have come to bring division. 52 For from now on, five members of a family will be divided, three against two and two against three; 53 father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother against son's wife and son's wife against her mother-in-law.'
Luke: 14
26 'If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, even his own life, he cannot be a disciple of mine. 27 No one who does not carry his cross and come with me can be a disciple of mine.

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 first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list.
This column is highlighted in light grey.
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.
