Greek Text

The reconstruction of the gospel texts below is based on the critical edition of E. Nestle's Novum Testamentum Graece presented with a fuller critical apparatus in Kurt Aland's Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum  ed. ii (Stuttgart: Württembergische Bibelanstalt, 1964) p. 179.  The matched column format & color coding employed here is the original work of the author of this electronic edition. The accented Greek script used to compose this synopsis is the unicode font, Palatino Linotype.

Matthew 13 Mark 4 Luke 8
    24  Καὶ ἔλεγεν αὐτοῖς,    
      Βλέπετε  18  Βλέπετε οὖν
      τὶ ἀκούετε·   πῶς ἀκούετε·
      ἐν ᾧ μέτρῳ    
      μετρηϑήσεται ὑμῖν,    
    ** προστεϑήσεται ὑμῖν.    
 12  ὃστις γὰρ ἔχει, 25  ὃς γὰρ ἔχει,   ὃς ἄν γὰρ ἔχῃ,
  δοϑήσεται αὐτῷ   δοϑήσεται αὐτῷ·   δοϑήσεται αὐτῷ·
  καὶ   καὶ   καὶ
  ὃστις δὲ οὐκ ἔχει,   ὃς οὐκ ἔχει,   ὃς ἂν μὴ ἔχῃ,
  καὶ   καὶ   καὶ
  ὃ ἔχει   ὃ ἔχει   δοκεῖ ἔχειν
  ἀρϑήσεται   ἀρϑήσεται   ἀρϑήσεται
  ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ.   ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ.   ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ.

** Note: Mark 4:24 -- The text follows the oldest mss. in the Egyptian recension (Sinaiticus & Vaticanus); the majority of later Byzantine codices have τοῖς ἀκούουσιν instead of  ὑμῖν. 

Compare: Mark 4:24 (above) with 

Matthew 7 Mark Luke 6
 2  Ἐν ᾧ γὰρ κρίματι      
  ἐν ᾧ μέτρῳ    38b  γὰρ μέτρῳ
  μετρεῖτε     μετρεῖτε
  μετρηϑήσεται ὑμῖν.     ἀντιμετρηϑήσεται ὑμῖν.

Compare: Matt 13:12 // Mark 4:25 // Luke 8:18  (above) with

Matth 25 Mark Luke 19
       26  Λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι
29  Τῷ γὰρ ἔχοντι παντὶ,     παντὶ τῷ ἔχοντι,
  δοϑήσεται     δοϑήσεται
  καὶ περισσευϑήσεται·      
  τοῦ δὲ μὴ ἔχοντος     ἀπὸ δὲ τοῦ μὴ ἔχοντος
  καὶ ὃ ἔχει     καὶ ὃ ἔχει
  ἀρϑήσεται     ἀρϑήσεται.
  ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
