katapi HOME Tasteless Salt - Lk.14.34-35  Mt.5.13-16  Mk.9.50     | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 14
34'Salt is a good thing; but if salt itself becomes tasteless, what will you use to season it? 35It is useless either on the land or on the dung-heap: it can only be thrown away. If you have ears to hear, then hear.'

Matthew: 5
13'You are salt to the world. And if salt becomes tasteless, how is its saltness to be restored? It is now good for nothing but to be thrown away and trodden underfoot.
14'You are light for all the world. A town that stands on a hill cannot be hidden. 15When a lamp is lit, it is not put under the meal-tub, but on the lamp-stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16And you, like the lamp, must shed light among your fellows, so that, when they see the good you do, they may give praise to your Father in heaven.

Mark: 9
50'Salt is a good thing; but if the salt loses its saltness, what will you season it with?

'Have salt in yourselves; and be [Or: Have the salt of fellowship and be ... ; or: You have the salt of fellowship between you; then be ...] at peace with one another.'


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.
