Mark: 1
14 AFTER JOHN HAD BEEN ARRESTED, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the Gospel of God: 15 'The time has come; the kingdom of God is upon you; repent, and believe the Gospel.'
16 Jesus was walking by the shore of the Sea of Galilee when he saw Simon and his brother Andrew on the lake at work with a casting-net; for they were fishermen. 17 Jesus said to them, 'Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men.' 18 And at once they left their is nets and followed him.
19 When he had gone a little further he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in the boat overhauling their nets. 20 He called them; and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, they went off to follow him.
Matthew: 4
14 This was in fulfilment of the passage in the prophet Isaiah which tells of 15 'the land of Zebulun, the land of Naphrali, the road by the sea, the land beyond Jordan, heathen Galilee', and says: 16 'The people that lived in darkness saw a great light;
Light dawned on the dwellers in the land of death's dark shadow.' 17 From that day Jesus began to proclaim the message: 'Repent; for the kingdom of Heaven is upon you.'
18 JESUS WAS WALKING by the Sea of Galilee when is he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the lake; for they were fishermen. 19 Jesus said to them, 'Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men.' 20 They left their nets at once and followed him.
21 He went on, and saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in the boat with their father Zebedee, overhauling their nets. He called them, 22 and at once they left the boat and their father, and followed him.
Luke: 4
14 THEN JESUS, armed with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee; and reports about him spread through the whole countryside. 15 He taught in their synagogues and all men sang his praises.
Luke: 5
1 One day as he stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and the people crowded upon him to listen to the word of God, 2 he noticed two boats lying at the water's edge; the fishermen had come ashore and were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore; then he went on teaching the crowds from his seat in the boat. 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.' 5 Simon answered, 'Master, we were hard at work all night and caught nothing at all; but if you say so, I will let down the nets.' 6 They did so and made a big haul of fish; and their nets began to split. 7 So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. This they did, and loaded both boats to the point of sinking. 8 When Simon saw what had happened he fell at Jesus's knees and said, 'Go, Lord, leave me, sinner that I am!' 9 For he and all his companions were amazed at the catch they had made; 10 so too were his partners James and John, Zebedee's sons. 'Do not be afraid,' said Jesus to Simon; 'from now on you will be catching men.' 11 As soon as they had brought the boats to land, they left everything and followed him.

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.
