katapi HOME The Would-Be Followers of Jesus - Lk.9.57-62  Mt.8.19-22       | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 9
57As they were going along the road a man said to him, 'I will follow you wherever you go.' 58Jesus answered, 'Foxes have their holes, the birds their roosts; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.' 59To another he said, 'Follow me', but the man replied, 'Let me go and bury my father first.' 60Jesus said, 'Leave the dead to bury their dead; you must go and announce the kingdom of God.'
61Yet another said, 'I will follow you, sir; but let me first say goodbye to my people at home.' 62To him Jesus said, 'No one who sets his hand to the plough and then keeps looking back [Some witnesses read: No one who looks back as he sets hand to the plough ...] is fit for the kingdom of God.'

Matthew: 8
19A doctor of the law came up, and said, 'Master, I will follow you wherever you go.' 20Jesus replied, 'Foxes have their holes, the birds their roosts; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.' 21Another man, one of his disciples, said to him, 'Lord, let me go and bury my father first.' 22Jesus replied, 'Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.'

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.
