katapi HOME Blessings and Woes - Lk.6.20-26  Mt.5.1-12       | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 6
20THEN TURNING TO HIS DISCIPLES he began to speak:

'How blest are you who are poor; the kingdom of God is yours.


Matthew: 5
1WHEN HE SAW the crowds he went up the hill.
There he took his seat, and when his disciples had gathered round him 2he began to address them.
And this is the teaching he gave: 3'How blest are those who know that they are poor,
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
4How blest are the sorrowful;
they shall find consolation.
5How blest are those of a gentle spirit;
they shall have the earth for their possession.
6How blest are those who hunger and thirst to see right prevail; [Or: to do what is right.]
they shall be satisfied.
7How blest are those who show mercy;
mercy shall be shown to them.
8How blest are those whose hearts are pure;
they shall see God.
9How blest are the peacemakers;
God shall call them his sons.
10How blest are those who have suffered persecution for the cause of right;
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs. 11'How blest you are, when you suffer insults and persecution and every kind of calumny for my sake. 12Accept it with gladness and exultation, for you have a rich reward in heaven; in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.

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.
