Mark: 10
46 They came to Jericho; and as he was leaving the town, with his disciples and a large crowd, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was seated at the roadside. 47 Hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, 'Son of David, Jesus, have pity on me!' 48 Many of the people rounded on him: 'Be quiet', they said; but he shouted all the more, 'Son of David, have pity on me.' 49 Jesus stopped and said, 'Call him'; so they called the blind man and said, 'Take heart; stand up; he is calling you.' 50 At that he threw off his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him, 'What do you want me to do for you?' 'Master,' the blind man answered, 'I want my sight back.' 52 Jesus said to him, 'Go; your faith has cured you.' And at once he recovered his sight and followed him on the road.
Matthew: 20
29 As they were leaving Jericho he was followed by a great crowd of people. 30 At the roadside sat two blind men. When they heard it said that Jesus was passing they shouted, 'Have pity on us. Son of David.' 31 The people rounded on them and told them to be quiet. But they shouted all the more, 'Sir, have pity on us, have pity on us, Son of David.' 32 Jesus stopped and called the men. 'What do you want me to do for you?' 33 he asked. 'Sir,' they answered, 'we want our sight.' 34 Jesus was deeply moved, and touched their eyes. At once their sight came back, and they went on after him.
Luke: 18
35 As he approached Jericho a blind man sat at the roadside begging. 36 Hearing a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, 'Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.' 38 Then he shouted out, 'Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.' 39 The people in front told him sharply to hold his tongue; but he called out all the more, 'Son of David, have pity on me.' 40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. 41 When he came up he asked him, 'What do you want me to do for you?' 'Sir, I want my sight back', he answered. 42 Jesus said to him, 'Have back your sight; your faith has cured you.' 43 He recovered his sight instantly; and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all the people gave praise to God for what they had seen.

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.
