The order of the matrix emphasizes differences among the gospels and refers to identical verses merely by the notation of chapter and verse. Where you see a chapter and verse cited without the saying, etc., assume that it is identical to the verse in the left hand column which is mostly Matthew's Gospel.
The Matrix shows how Matthew embellished, as it were, Mark's gospel and Luke followed Matthew and Mark, noting differences in chronology and also correcting Matthew. In Matthew the man with the withered arm, for instance, Luke shows is a man whose right arm is withered. So Luke elaborates where he thought appropriate. I have high-lighted texts which Matthew should have been following in Mark but did not pick up from Mark; likewise do we see details in Luke which he omits though presumably following Matthew and Mark.
In the matrix we also see how Luke remembers two beatitude scenes as to Matthew's remembrance of the Sermon on the Mount (but we see also in Matthew a reminder by Jesus how he had fed the 5,000 and then the 4,000 with fishes and loaves).
Jesus then went by ship to a desert
place; people followed on foot
disciples complained, "This is a
desert place; send them home to eat".
Jesus answered: how many loaves have
ye? Five and two fishes they answered
Fed 5,000; had 12 baskets left over
Then sent disciples into ship and sent
the multitude away
Went up a mountain to pray alone 'till
But the ship now midst a tossing sea
in 4th watch Jesus walked to them
on the sea
Disciples afraid; thought him a spirit
"Be of good cheer; it is I"
Peter answered: Lord bid me to come
in the water to thee
Peter walked to him
When Peter & Jesus came to the ship
the wind ceased
Worshipped him: Thou art truely the
Son of God
Came to the land of Gennesaret (Lake
Healed many; people wanted to touch
the hem of his garment
Scribes and pharisees from Jerusalem
came to him
They saw that his disciples did not
wash their hands before they ate
and complained about it
Jesus answered, why do you justify
being free by honoring not thy
mother & father?
Ye hypocrites: Esaias prophesied
this people draweth unto me with
their mouth, etc.
Called to the multitude: not that which
goeth into the mouth defileth
every plant which my Heavenly Father
hath not planted shall be rooted up
Leave them alone: let the blind
lead the blind
Peter said, declare unto us this
Then Jesus went to Tyre & Sidon
On the way a woman cried, "Have
mercy on me, Son of David"
Her daughter was vexed with a devil
Jesus did not answer her. Said
I am sent unto the lost sheep of
Woman begged: you toss crumbs to
Jesus went back to Sea of Galilee
Multitudes followed; Jesus healed
many; were with him 3 days
Fed multitude with seven loaves &
a few fishes; 4,000 people
Sent multitudes away & took ship &
came to Magdala
Pharisees & Saduccess came and
tempted him; asked him for a sign
Can discern the face of the sky etc.
Parable of the Sign of Jonas
Separated to the other side of the lake

Went to Bethsaida & healed blind man
Jesus came to coasts of Caesarea-
Whom do men say the Son of Man is?

the Son of the Living God
Thou Peter..upon this rock I will

the Keys to the Kingdom..whatosever
thou shalt loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven; whatsoever thou
shalt bind on earth shall be bound
From then on he began talking about
going to Jerusalem to suffer & be
raised the third day.
Peter rebuked him on these things
Anyone who follows me let him take
up his cross
"Whosoever shall save his life shall

5.1 (after he went into a
desert place) And it came
to pass, that the people
pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the land of Gennesaret.
11.37 As he spake a certain
pharisee besought him to
dine with him.
11.38...he marvelled that
he had not first washed
11.39 Lord said, "now do
ye pharisees make clean the
outside of the cup but your
inward part is full of
ravening & wickedness.
11.14 and he was casting out a devil and it was dumb; some say he casteth out devils by Beezelbub (see above also)
11.16..and others tempting
him sought of him a sign
11.19 There shall be no sign given it but the sign of Jonas the prophet
12.1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together a multitude, etc. said, Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy
9.18 and it came to pass,
as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him, and he asked them, Whom do people say I am?
9.19 They answering said
John the Baptist, but some
say Elias; and others say that one of the old prophets is risen again.
9.20 turning to Peter he asked, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God
9.22 Saying, the Son of Man must suffer many things & be rejected of the elders & chief priests and
scribes and slain and be
raised the 3rd day.
9.23 Let him take up his
cross & follow me.
9.24 Whosoever will save
his life will lose it
5.25 Verily, verily, I say unto you the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
6.28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice.
5.29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
5.39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: & they are they which testify of me.
5.46 For had ye believed Moses ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
5.47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
6.1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
6.2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
6.3 And Jesus went up into a mountain and there he sat with his disciples.
6.4 and the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
6.5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great compnay come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat?
6.7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them...
6.8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
6.9 There is a lad here, which hath five barely loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
6.19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
6.21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
6.41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
6.47 Verily, verily, I say unot you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
6.48 I am that bread of life.
6.49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
6.50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
6.51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any men eat of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread I will live is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
6.54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
6.59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernum
6.65 And he said, Therefore siad I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my father.
6.66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
6.67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
6.68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.
6.68 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
7.1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
7.2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7.3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
7.4 For there is no man that doeth anything in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
7.5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7.6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but yur time is always ready.
7.7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, tht the works thereof are evil.
7.14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught.
7.15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
7.16 Jesus answered them, and said My doctrine is not mine but his that sent me.
7.17 If any man do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
7.19 Did not Moses give you the law and yet none of you keepeth the Law. Why go ye about to kill me?
7.20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
7.23 If a man on the Sabbath day receive circumcision that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man whole on the Sabbath day?
9.1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from birth.
9.3 Jesus answered, neither
hath this man sinned, nor his
parents: but that the works
of God should be made
manifest in him
9.4 I must work the works
of Him that sent me, while it
is day: the night cometh,
when no man can work.
9.5 As long as I am in the
world, I am the light of the
9.6 When he had thus
spoken, he spat on the
ground, and made clay of the
spittle, and he anointed the
eyes of the blind man with
9.7 And said unto him, Go,
wash in the pool of Siloam
(which is by interpretation,
Sent.) he went his way
therefore, and washed, and
came forth seeing.
9.14 And it was the Sabbath
day when Jesus made the
clay, and opened his eyes
9.16 Therefore said some of
the Pharisees, This man is
not of God because he
keepeth not the sabbath
