katapi HOME The Question about David's Son - Mk.12.35-37  Mt.22.41-46  Lk.20.41-44     | NEB Books | notes

Mark: 12
35And Jesus went on to say, as he taught in the temple, 'How can the teachers of the law maintain that the Messiah is "Son of David"? 36David himself said, when inspired by the Holy Spirit, "The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.'" 37David himself calls him "Lord"; how can he also be David's son?'

There was a great crowd and they listened eagerly. [Or: The mass of the people listened eagerly.]


Matthew: 22
41Turning to the assembled Pharisees Jesus asked them, 42'What is your opinion about the Messiah? Whose son is he?' 'The son of David', they replied. 43'How then is it', he asked, 'that David by inspiration calls him "Lord"? For he says, 44"The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.' 45"If David calls him "Lord", how can he be David's son?' 46Not a man could say a word in reply; and from that day forward no one dared ask him another question.

Luke: 20
41He said to them, 'How can they say that the Messiah is son of David? 42For David himself says in the Book of Psalms: "The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at my right hand 43until I make your enemies your footstool.' " 44Thus David calls him "Lord"; how then can he be David's son?'

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.
