Mark: 3
31 Then his mother and his brothers arrived, and remaining outside sent in a message asking him to come out to them. 32 A crowd was sitting round and word was brought to him: 'Your mother and your brothers are outside asking for you.' 33 He replied, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?' 34 And looking round at those who were sitting in the circle about him he said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers. 35 Whoever does the will of God is my brother, my sister, my mother.'
Matthew: 12
46 He was still speaking to the crowd when his mother and brothers appeared; they stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone said, 'Your mother and your brothers are here outside; they want to speak to you.' 48 Jesus turned to the man who brought the message, and said, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?'; 49 and pointing to the disciples, he said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 Whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, my sister, my mother.'
Luke: 8
19 His mother and his brothers arrived but could not get to him for the crowd. 20 He was told, 'Your mother and brothers are standing outside, and they want to see you.' 21 He replied, 'My mother and my brothers - they are those who hear the word of God and act upon it.'

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.
