katapi HOME The Demand for a Sign - Lk.11.29-32  Mt.12.33-37  Mk.8.11-12     | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 11
29With the crowds swarming round him he went on to say: 'This is a wicked generation. It demands a sign, and the only sign that will be given to it is the sign of Jonah. 30For just as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation. 31At the Judgement, when the men of this generation are on trial, the Queen of the South will appear against [Or: will be raised to life together with ...] them and ensure their condemnation, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and what is here is greater than Solomon. 32The men of Nineveh will appear at the Judgement when this generation is on trial, and ensure [Or: At Judgement the men of Nineveh will rise again together with this generation and will ensure ...] its condemnation, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and what is here is greater than Jonah.

Matthew: 12
33'Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; you can tell a tree by its fruit. 34You vipers' brood! How can your words be good when you yourselves are evil? For the words that the mouth utters come from the overflowing of the heart. 35A good man produces good from the store of good within himself; and an evil man from evil within produces evil.
36'I tell you this: there is not a thoughtless word that comes from men's lips but they will have to account for it on the day of judgement. 37For out of your own mouth you will be acquitted; out of your own mouth you will be condemned.'

Mark: 8
11Then the Pharisees came out and engaged him in discussion. 12To test him they asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply to himself and said, 'Why does this generation ask for a sign? I tell you this: no sign shall be given to this generation.'

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.
