John: 19
28 After that, Jesus, aware that all had now come to its appointed end, said in fulfilment of Scripture, 'I thirst.' 29 A jar stood there full of sour wuae; so they soaked a sponge with the wine, fixed it on a javelin, and held it up to his lips. 30 Having received the wine, he said, 'It is accomplished!' He bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Matthew: 27
45 Darkness fell over the whole land from midday until three in the afternoon; 46 and about three Jesus cried aloud, 'Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?', which means, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me ?' 47 Some of the bystanders, on hearing this, said, 'He is calling Elijah.' 48 One of them ran at once and fetched a sponge, which he soaked in sour wine, and held it to his lips on the end of a cane. 49 But the others said, 'Let us see if Elijah will come to save him.'
50 Jesus again gave a loud cry, and breathed his last. 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. There was an earthquake, the rocks split 52 and the graves opened, and many of God's people arose from sleep; 53 and coming out of their graves after his resurrection they entered the Holy City, where many saw them. 54 And when the centurion and his men who were keeping watch over Jesus saw the earthquake and all that was happening, they were filled with awe, and they said, 'Truly this man was a son of God.'
55 A NUMBER OF WOMEN were also present, watching from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and waited on him. 56 Among them were Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
Mark: 15
33 At midday darkness fell over the whole land, which lasted till three in the afternoon; 34 and at three Jesus cried aloud, 'Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?', which means, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' 35 Some of the passers-by, on hearing this, said, 'Hark, he is calling Elijah.' 36 A man came running with a sponge, soaked in sour wine, on the end of a cane, and held it to his lips. 'Let us see', he said, 'if Elijah is coming to take him down.' 37 Then Jesus gave a loud cry and died. 38 And the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion who was standing opposite him saw how he died, he said, 'Truly this man was a son of God.'
40 A NUMBER OF WOMEN were also present, watching from a distance. Among them were Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joseph, and Salome, 41 who had all followed him and waited on him when he was in Galilee, and there were several others who had come up to Jerusalem with him.
Luke: 23
44 By now it was about midday and there came a darkness over the whole land, which lasted until three in the afternoon; the sun was in eclipse. 45 And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Then Jesus gave a loud cry and said, 'Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit'; and with these words he died. 47 The centurion saw it all, and gave praise to God. 'Beyond all doubt', he said, 'this man was innocent.'
48 The crowd who had assembled for the spectacle, when they saw what had happened, went home beating their breasts.
49 HIS FRIENDS had all been standing at a distance; the women who had accompanied him from Galilee stood with them and watched it all.

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.
