Mark: 7
24 Then he left that place and went away into the territory of Tyre. He found a house to stay in, and he would have liked to remain unrecognized, but this was impo 25 Almost at once a woman whose young daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit heard of him, came in, and fell at his feet. 26 (She was a Gentile, a Phoenician of Syria by nationality.) She begged him to drive the spirit out of her daughter. 27 He said to her, 'Let the children be satisfied first; it is not fair to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs.' 28 'Sir,' she answered, 'even the dogs under the table eat the children's scraps.' 29 He said to her, 'For saying that, you may go home content; the unclean spirit has gone out of your daughter.' 30 And when she returned home, she found the child lying in bed; the spirit had left her.
Matthew: 15
21 JESUS THEN LEFT that place and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from those parts came crying out, 'Sir! have pity on me. Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a devil.' 23 But he said not a word in reply. His disciples came and urged him: 'Send her away; see how she comes shouting after us.' 24 Jesus replied, 'I was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and to them alone.' 25 But the woman came and fell at his feet and cried, 'Help me, sir.' 26 To this Jesus replied, 'It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs.' 27 'True, sir,' she answered; 'and yet the dogs eat the scraps that fall from their masters' table.' 28 Hearing this Jesus replied, 'Woman, what faith you have! Be it as you wish!' And from that moment her daughter was restored to health.

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.
