Harmony: a systematic arrangement of parallel literary passages (as of the Gospels) for the purpose of showing agreement or harmony [from Merriam-Webster Online].

A "harmony" attempts to take parallel passages from Scripture to show the harmony and the agreement of those passages. Another important goal is to show how different accounts vary in their degree of information and detail. The Gospel harmonization below focuses on the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. It is primarily based upon A.T. Robertson's gospel harmony from the early 1900's.
