  Greek synopsis  


343 Matt 26 343 Mark 14 338 Luke 22
67 Then they 65 And some began 63 Now the men
          who were holding Jesus
  spat in   to spit on him,   mocked him
  his face,   and to cover his face,    
  and struck him;   and to strike him,   and beat him;
  and some slapped him,        
        64 they also blindfolded him
68 saying, "Prophesy to us,   saying to him, "Prophesy!"   and asked him, "Prophesy!
  you Christ! **      
  Who is it that struck you?" **     Who is it that struck you?"
      And the guards received him    
      with blows.    
        65 And they spoke
          many other words against him,
          reviling him.


**Note: In one 4th c. codex known as the Freer gospels & a few later mss. Mark 14:65 includes wording identical with Matt 26:68. But the words after "Prophesy" in Matt are not found here in other early codices (Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, Bezae Cantabrigiensis) or papyri.
