katapi HOME Jesus before Pilate: Jn.18.28-38  (Mt.27.1-2, 11-14  Mk.15.1-5  Lk.23.1-5  ) | NEB Index | notes
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.
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.
3 When Judas the traitor saw that Jesus had been condemned, he was seized with remorse, and returned the thirty silver pieces to the chief priests and elders. 4 'I have sinned,' he said; 'I have brought an innocent man to his death.' But they said, 'What is that to us? 5 See to that yourself.' So he threw the money down in the temple and left them, and went and hanged himself.
6 Taking up the money, the chief priests argued: 'This cannot be put into the temple fund; it is blood-money.' 7 So after conferring they used it to buy the Potter's Field, as a burial-place for foreigners. 8 This explains the name 'Blood Acre', by which that field has been known ever since; 9 and in this way fulfilment was given to the prophetic utterance of Jeremiah: 'They took the thirty silver pieces, the price set on a man's head (for that was his price among the Israelites), 10 and gave the money for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me.'
11 Jesus was now brought before the Governor; and as he stood there the Governor asked him, 'Are you the king of the Jews?' 'The words are yours', said Jesus; 12 and to the charges laid against him by the chief priests and elders he made no reply. 13 Then Pilate said to him, 'Do you not hear all this evidence that is brought against you?'; 14 but he still refused to answer one word, to the Governor's great astonishment.
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.
Luke: 23
1 With that the whole assembly rose, and they brought him before Pilate. 2 They opened the case against him by saying, 'We found this man subverting our nation, opposing the payment of taxes to Caesar, and claiming to be Messiah, a king.' 3 Pilate asked him, 'Are you the king of the Jews?' He replied, 'The words are yours.' 4 Pilate then said to the chief priests and the crowd, 'I find no case for this man to answer.' 5 But they insisted: 'His teaching is causing disaffection among the people all through Judaea. It started from Galilee and has spread as far as this city.'

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.
