*Note 1: The Doré Bible Illustrations (New York: Dover Publications, 1974) connects two of the above prints with other Gospels, although they were associated with Mark's Gospel in The Holy Bible, with Illustrations by Gustave Doré (New York: Cassell Petter & Galpin, 1866-70):

Cassell (1866-70) Dover (1974)
"Jesus Preaching in the Synagogue" (Mark 1:22) "Christ in the Synagogue" (Matt 13:54, 55)
