Luke: 22
14When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him; and he said to them, 15'How I have longed [Or: said to them, 'I longed ...] to eat this Passover with you before my death! 16For I tell you, never again shall I [Some witnesses read: For I tell you, I shall not ...] eat it until the time when it finds its fulfilment in the kingdom of God.' 17Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, 'Take this and share it among yourselves; 18for I tell you, from this moment I shall drink from the fruit of the vine no more until the time when the kingdom of God comes.' 19And he took bread, gave thanks, and broke it; and he gave it to them, with the words: 'This is my body.'

[Some manuscripts add, in whole or in part, and with various arrangements, the following: 'which is given for you; do this as a memorial of me.'] 20[In the same way he took the cup after supper, and said, 'This cup, poured out for you, is the new covenant sealed by my blood.']
21'But mark this—my betrayer is here, his hand with mine on the table. 22For the Son of Man is going his appointed way; but alas for that man by whom he is betrayed!' 23At this they began to ask among themselves which of them it could possibly be who was to do this thing.


Matthew: 26
26During supper Jesus took bread, and having said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples with the words: 'Take this and eat; this is my body.' 27Then he took a cup, and having offered thanks to God he gave it to them with the words: 'Drink from it, all of you. 28For this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, never again shall I drink from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of my Father.'
30After singing the Passover Hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Mark: 14
22During supper he took bread, and having said the blessing he broke it and gave it to them, with the words: 'Take this; this is my body.' 23Then he took a cup, and having offered thanks to God he gave it to them; and they all drank from it. 24And he said, 'This is my blood of the covenant, shed for many. 25I tell you this: never again shall I drink from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.'

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.
