katapi HOME The Baptism of Jesus - Lk.3.21-22  Mt.3.13-17  Mk.1.9-11     | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 3
21DURING A GENERAL BAPTISM of the people, when Jesus too had been baptized and was praying, heaven opened 22and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove; and there came a voice from heaven,'Thou art my Son, my Beloved; [Or: Thou art my only Son.] on thee my favour rests.' [Some witnesses read: My Son art thou; this day I have begotten thee.]

Matthew: 3
13Then Jesus arrived at the Jordan from Galilee, and came to John to be baptized by him. 14John tried to dissuade him. 'Do you come to me?' he said; 'I need rather to be baptized by you.' 15Jesus replied, 'Let it be so for the present; we do well to conform in this way with all that God requires.' John then allowed him to come. 16After baptism Jesus came up out of the water at once, and at that moment heaven opened; he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove to alight upon him; 17and a voice from heaven was heard saying, 'This is my Son, my Beloved, [Or: This is my only Son.] on whom my favour rests.'

Mark: 1
9It happened at this time that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. 10At the moment when he came up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him. 11And a voice spoke from heaven: 'Thou art my Son, my Beloved; [Or: Thou art my only Son.] on thee my favour rests.'

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.
