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) pp. 183-184.  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     Luke  
44 Ὁμοία ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐραῶν    
  ϑησαυρῷ κεκρυμμένῳ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ,    
  ὃν εὑρὼν ἄνϑρωτος ἔκρυψεν,    
  καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς χαρᾶς αὐτοῦ ὑπάγει    
  καὶ πωλεῖ ὅσα ἔχει    
  καὶ ἀγοράζει τὸν ἀγρὸν ἐκεῖνον.    
Matthew 13  Mark   Luke 
45 Πάλιν ὁμοία ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν    
  ἐμπόρῳ ζητοῦντι  καλοὺς  μαργαρίτας·    
 46  εὑρὸν δὲ ἕνα πολύτιμον μαργαρίτην    
  ἀπελϑὼν πέπρακεν πάντα ὅσα εἶχεν    
  καὶ ἠγόρασεν αὐτόν.

Matthew 13  Mark   Luke 
47 Πάλιν ὁμοία ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν    
  σαγήνῃ βλεηϑείσῃ εἰς τὴν ϑάλασσαν    
  καὶ ἐκ παντὸς γένους συναγογούσῇ·     
48 ἣν ὅτε ἐπληρώϑη    
  ἀναβιβάσαντες ἐπὶ τὸν αἰγιαλὸν    
  καὶ καϑίσταντες    
  συνέλεξαν τὰ καλὰ εἰς ἄγγη,    
  τὰ δὲ σαπρὰ ἔξω ἔβαλον.    
49 οὕτως ἔσται ἐν τῇ συντελεία τοῦ αἰῶνος.    
  ἐξελεύσονται οἱ ἄγελλοι    
  καὶ ἀϕοριοῦσιν τοὺς πονηροὺς    
  ἐκ μέσου τῶν δικαίων,    
50 καὶ βαλοῦσιν αὐτοὺς    
  εἰς τὴν κάμινον τοῦ πυρός·    
  ἐκεῖ ἔσται ὁ κλαυϑμὸς    
  καὶ ὁ βρυγμὸς τῶν ὀδόντων.
