Matthew: 26
17On the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to ask Jesus, 'Where would you like us to prepare for your Passover supper?' 18He answered, 'Go to a certain man in the city, and tell him, "The Master says, 'My appointed time is near; I am to keep Passover with my disciples at your house.' " ' 19The disciples did as Jesus directed them and prepared for Passover.
20In the evening he sat down with the twelve disciples; 21and during supper he said, 'I tell you this: one of you will betray me.' 22In great distress they exclaimed one after the other, 'Can you mean me. Lord?' 23He answered, 'One who has dipped his hand into this bowl with me will betray me. 24The Son of Man is going the way appointed for him in the scriptures; but alas for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had never been born.' 25Then Judas spoke, the one who was to betray him. 'Rabbi,' he said, 'can you mean me?' Jesus replied, 'The words are yours.' [Or: It is as you say.]

Mark: 14
12NOW ON THE FIRST DAY of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lambs were being slaughtered, his disciples said to him, 'Where would you like us to go and prepare for your Passover supper?' 13So he sent out two of his disciples with these instructions: 'Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a jar of water. 14Follow him, and when he enters a house give this message to the householder: "The Master says, 'Where is the room reserved for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?'" 15He will show you a large room upstairs, set out in readiness. Make the preparations for us there.' 16Then the disciples went off, and when they came into the city they found everything just as he had told them. So they prepared for Passover.
17In the evening he came to the house with the Twelve. 18As they sat at supper Jesus said, 'I tell you is this: one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.' 19At this they were dismayed; and one by one they said to him, 'Not I, surely?' 20'It is one of the Twelve', he said, 'who is dipping into the same bowl with me. 21The Son of Man is going the way appointed for him in the scriptures; but alas for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had never been born.'

Luke: 22
7Then came the day of Unleavened Bread, on which the Passover victim had to be slaughtered, 8and Jesus sent Peter and John with these instructions: 'Go and prepare for our Passover supper.' 9'Where would you like us to make the preparations?' they asked. 10He replied, 'As soon as you set foot in the city a man will meet you carrying a jar of water. Follow him into the house that he enters 11and give this message to the householder: "The Master says, 'Where is the room in which I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'" 12He will show you a large room upstairs all set out: make the preparations there.' 13They went and found everything as he had said. So they prepared for Passover.
14When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him; and he said to them,

Luke: 22
21'But mark this—my betrayer is here, his hand with mine on the table. 22For the Son of Man is going his appointed way; but alas for that man by whom he is betrayed!' 23At this they began to ask among themselves which of them it could possibly be who was to do this thing.


John: 13
21After saying this, Jesus exclaimed in deep agitation of spirit, 'In truth, in very truth I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.' 22The disciples looked at one another in bewilderment: whom could he be speaking of? 23One of them, the disciple he loved, was reclining close beside Jesus. 24So Simon Peter nodded to him and said, 'Ask who it is he means.' 25That disciple, as he reclined, leaned back close to Jesus and asked, 'Lord, who is it?' 26Jesus replied, 'It is the man to whom I give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.' Then, after dipping it in the dish, he took it out and gave it to Judas son of Simon Iscariot. 27As soon as Judas had received it Satan entered him. Jesus said to him, 'Do quickly what you have to do.' 28No one at the table understood what he meant by this. 29Some supposed that, as Judas was in charge of the common purse, Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to make some gift to the poor. 30Judas, then, received the bread and went out. It was night.

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.
