HARMONY OF THE GOSPELS

Harmony of the Four Gospels

Comparison of the Four Gospels in the Bible

Harmony of the Gospels of Jesus in the Bible - shows the Comparisons of the Four Gospels of Jesus Christ in the Bible.

All Four Gospels in the Bible that tell the story of Jesus Christ -- Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John -- stand alone, emphasizing a unique aspect of Jesus' life. But when these are blended into one complete account, or Harmonized, we gain new insights about the life of Christ. This Harmony combines the Four Gospels into a single chronological account of Christ's life on earth. It includes every Chapter and Verse of each Gospel, leaving nothing out. The Harmony is divided into 250 events.
