katapi HOME Teaching about Retaliation - Mt.5.38-42  Lk.6.29-30       | NEB Books | notes

Matthew: 5
38'You have learned that they were told, "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." 39But what I tell you is this: Do not set yourself against the man who wrongs you. If someone slaps you on the right cheek, turn and offer him your left. 40If a man wants to sue you for your shirt, let him have your coat as well. 41If a man in authority makes you go one mile, go with him two. 42Give when you are asked to give; and do not turn your back on a man who wants to borrow.

Luke: 6
29When a man hits you on the cheek, offer him the other cheek too; when a man takes your coat, let him have your shirt as well. 30Give to everyone who asks you; when a man takes what is yours, do not demand it back.

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.
