katapi HOME The Man with an Unclean Spirit - Lk.4.31-37  Mk.1.21-28       | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 4
31Coming down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, he taught the people on the Sabbath, 32and they were astounded at his teaching, for what he said had the note of authority. 33Now there was a man in the synagogue possessed by a devil, an unclean spirit. He shrieked at the top of his voice, 34'What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you [Or: You have.] come to destroy us? I know who you are?the Holy One of God.' 35Jesus rebuked him: 'Be silent', he said, 'and come out of him.' Then the devil, after throwing the man down in front of the people, left him without doing him any injury. 36Amazement fell on them all and they said to one another: 'What is there in this man's words? He gives orders to the unclean spirits with authority and power, and out they go.' 37So the news spread, and he was the talk of the whole district.

Mark: 1
21They came to Capernaum, and on the Sabbath he went to synagogue and began to teach. 22The people were astounded at his teaching, for, unlike the doctors of the law, he taught with a note of authority. 23Now there was a man in the synagogue possessed by an unclean spirit. 24He shrieked: 'What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you [Or: You have.] come to destroy us? I know who you are-the Holy One of God.' 25Jesus rebuked him: 'Be silent', he said, 'and come out of him.' 26And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry left him. 27They were all dumbfounded and began to ask one another, 'What is this? A new kind of teaching! He speaks with authority. When he gives orders, even the unclean spirits submit.' 28The news spread rapidly, and he was soon spoken of all over the district of Galilee.

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.
