Mark: 15
1 WHEN MORNING CAME the chief priests, having made their plan with the elders and lawyers and all the Council, put Jesus in chains; then they led him away and handed him over to Pilate. 2 Pilate asked him, 'Are you the king of the Jews?' He replied, 'The words are yours.' 3 And the chief priests brought many charges against him. 4 Pilate questioned him again: 'Have you nothing to say in your defence? You see how many charges they are bringing against you.' 5 But, to Pilate's astonishment, Jesus made no further reply.
Matthew: 27
1 WHEN MORNING CAME, the chief priests and the elders of the nation met in conference to plan the death of Jesus. 2 They then put him in chains and led him off, to hand him over to Pilate, the Roman Governor.
Luke: 23
11 Then Herod and his troops treated him with contempt and ridicule, and sent him back to Pilate dressed in a gorgeous robe. 12 That same day Herod and Pilate became friends: till then there had been a standing feud between them.
13 Pilate now called together the chief priests, councillors, and people, 14 and said to them, 'You brought this man before me on a charge of subversion. But, as you see, I have myself examined him in your presence and found nothing in him to support your charges.
John: 18
28 FROM CAIAPHAS Jesus was led into the Governor's headquarters. It was now early morning, and the Jews themselves stayed outside the headquarters to avoid defilement, so that they could eat the Passover meal. 29 So Pilate went out to them and asked, 'What charge do you bring against this man?' 30 'If he were not a criminal,' they replied, 'we should not have brought him before you.' 31 Pilate said, 'Take him away and try him by your own law.' The Jews answered, 'We are not allowed to put any man to death.' 32 Thus they ensured the fulfilment of the words by which Jesus had indicated the manner of his death.
33 Pilate then went back into his headquarters and summoned Jesus. 'Are you the king of the Jews?' he asked. 34 Jesus said, 'Is that your own idea, or have others suggested it to you?' 35 'What! am I a Jew?' said Pilate. 'Your own nation and their chief priests have brought you before me. What have you done?' 36 Jesus replied, 'My kingdom does not belong to this world. If it did, my followers would be fighting to save me from arrest by the Jews. My kingly authority comes from elsewhere.' 37 'You are a king, then?' said Pilate. Jesus answered, '"King" is your word. My task is to bear witness to the truth. For this was I born; for this I came into the world, and all who are not deaf to truth listen to my voice.' 38 Pilate said, 'What is truth?', and with those words went out again to the Jews. 'For my part,' he said, 'I find no case against 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.
