Synoptic code-switching.

Select your own markup format to display synopses.


My synoptic project uses a combination of Cascading Style Sheets and JavaScript to enable the visitor to choose from a menu of synoptic coding options. Simply click on the scheme of your choice in the list below and watch the synoptic text change accordingly. You may also choose between two modes, view and print. Click on the word view to change the page to print mode, then click on the word print (which will take the place of the view) to return to view mode.

Code-switching will not work with your browser, as it does not support JavaScript.
Matthew 26.67-68. Mark 14.65. Luke 22.63-65.
67 Τότε
 
 
ἐνπτυσαν εἰς
 
τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ
καὶ
 κολάφισαν αὐτόν,
οἱ δὲ ἐράπισαν*
68 λέγοντες·
Προφήτευσον ἡμῖν,
Χριστέ,
 τίς ἐστιν
ὁ παίσας σε;
65 Καὶ ἤρξαντό τινες
 
 
ἐμπτύειν αὐτῷ
καὶ περικαλύπτειν
αὐτοῦ τὸ πρόσωπον
καὶ κολαφίζ
ειν αὐτὸν
 
καὶ λέγειν αὐτῷ·
Προφήτευσον.
 
 
καὶ οἱ ὑπηρέται
ῥαπίσμασιν*
αὐτὸν ἔλαβον.
63 Καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες
οἱ συνέχοντες αὐτὸν
ἐνέπαιζον

αὐτῷ δέροντες,
64 καὶ περικαλύψαντες 
 
αὐτὸν
 
ἐπηρώτων λέγοντες·
Προφήτευσον,
τίς ἐστιν
ὁ παίσας σε;

65 καὶ ἕτερα πολλὰ
βλασφημοῦντες
ἔλεγον εἰς
 αὐτόν.
67 Then
 
 
they spat
 
upon his face
and buffeted him,
and others slappedhim,
68 saying:
Prophesy unto us, Christ!
Who is it who hit you?
65 And some began
 
 
to spit upon him
and to blindfold
his face
and to buffet him
 
and to say to him:
Prophesy!
 
And the attendants
struck him
with their palms.*
63 And the men
who held him
mocked him,
smiting him,

64 and having blindfolded
 
him
 
they asked him, saying:
Prophesy!
Who is it who hit you?
65 And they spoke 
to
 him with many
other
 blasphemies.

The sample text is the buffeting (or smiting) of Jesus.

I highly recommend choosing print mode and the blank scheme, printing the synopsis out, and coding the text by hand with the scheme of your choice in order to best grasp the nature of the synoptic problem for each set of parallel passages.
