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

Mark: 12
35And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, "How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? 36David himself, inspired by [Or: himself, in] the Holy Spirit, declared,

'The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
till I put thy enemies under thy feet.' 37David himself calls him Lord; so how is he his son?" And the great throng heard him gladly.


Matthew: 22
41Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, 42saying, "What do you think of the Christ? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "The son of David." 43He said to them, "How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit [Or: David in the Spirit], calls him Lord, saying, 44'The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
till I put thy enemies under thy feet'? 45If David thus calls him Lord, how is he his son?" 46And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did any one dare to ask him any more questions.

Luke: 20
41But he said to them, "How can they say that the Christ is David's son? 42For David himself says in the Book of Psalms,

'The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
43till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.' 44David thus calls him Lord; so how is he his 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.
