Mark: 13
28'Learn a lesson from the fig-tree. When its tender shoots appear and are breaking into leaf, you know that summer is near. 29In the same way, when you see all this happening, you may know that the end is near, [Or: that he is near.] at the very door. 30I tell you this: the present generation will live to see it all. 31Heaven and earth will pass away; my words will never pass away.

Matthew: 24
32'Learn a lesson from the fig-tree. When its tender shoots appear and are breaking into leaf, you know that summer is near. 33In the same way, when you see all these things, you may know that the end is near, [Or: that he is near.] at the very door. 34I tell you this: the present generation will live to see it all. 35Heaven and earth will pass away; my words will never pass away.

Luke: 21
29He told them this parable: 'Look at the fig-tree, or any other tree. 30As soon as it buds, you can see for yourselves that summer is near. 31In the same way when you see all this happening, you may know that the kingdom of God is near.
32'I tell you this: the present generation will live to see it all. 33Heaven and earth will pass away; my words will never pass away.

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.
