katapi HOME Jesus Brought before Pilate - Mt.27.1-2  Mk.15.1  Lk.23.1-2  Jn.18.28-32   | NEB Books | notes

Matthew: 27
1WHEN MORNING CAME, the chief priests and the elders of the nation met in conference to plan the death of Jesus. 2They then put him in chains and led him away, to hand him over to Pilate, the Roman Governor.

Mark: 15
1AS SOON AS 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.

Luke: 23
1With that the whole assembly rose, and they brought him before Pilate. 2They 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.' [Or: to be an anointed king.]

John: 18
28FROM 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. [Or: could share in the offerings of the Passover season.] 29So 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.' 31Pilate said, 'Take him away and try him by your own law.' The Jews answered, 'We are not allowed to put any man to death.' 32Thus they ensured the fulfilment of the words by which Jesus had indicated the manner of his death.

Notes: 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 the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). 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.
