Harmony of the Gospels
This chart organizes events from the life of Christ in approximate chronological order. When an event appears in more than one gospel, the parallel accounts are grouped together.
   Understand that this is a general guide. Since many passages omit clear time references, some of the sequencing is speculative.
   This gospel harmony is also available in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.

Dynamic Sorting
You can sort this chart by book and by event title by clicking on a table header. For example, selecting John will display all the events from that book in the order which the author presents them.
