katapi HOME The Parable of the Lost Sheep - Lk.15.1-7  Mt.18.12-14       | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 15
1ANOTHER TIME, the tax-gatherers and other bad characters were all crowding in to listen to him; 2and the Pharisees and the doctors of the law began grumbling among themselves: 'This fellow', they said, 'welcomes sinners and eats with them.' 3He answered them with this parable: 4'If one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the missing one until he has found it? 5How delighted he is then! He lifts it on to his shoulders, 6and home he goes to call his friends and neighbours together. "Rejoice with me!" he cries. "I have found my lost sheep." 7In the same way, I tell you, there will be greater joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who do not need to repent.

Matthew: 18
12'What do you think? Suppose a man has a hundred sheep. If one of them strays, does he not leave the other ninety-nine on the hill-side and go in search of the one that strayed? 13And if he should find it, I tell you this: he is more delighted over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that never strayed. 14In the same way, it is not your heavenly Father's will that one of these little ones should be lost.

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.
