Book 41 Mark 001:001 The beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 001:002 As it is written in the prophets, "Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.{Malachi 3:1} 001:003 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make ready the way of the Lord! Make his paths straight!'"{Isaiah 40:3} 001:004 John came baptizing{or, immersing} in the wilderness and preaching the baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sins. 001:005 All the country of Judea and all those of Jerusalem went out to him. They were baptized by him in the Jordan river, confessing their sins. 001:006 John was clothed with camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey. 001:007 He preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen. 001:008 I baptized you in{The Greek word (en) translated here as "in" could also be translated as "with" in some contexts.} water, but he will baptize you in the Holy Spirit." 001:009 It happened in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 001:010 Immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parting, and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 001:011 A voice came out of the sky, "You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." 001:012 Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness. 001:013 He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals; and the angels were serving him. 001:014 Now after John was taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Good News of the Kingdom of God, 001:015 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand! Repent, and believe in the Good News." 001:016 Passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 001:017 Jesus said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you into fishers for men." 001:018 Immediately they left their nets, and followed him. 001:019 Going on a little further from there, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. 001:020 Immediately he called them, and they left their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him. 001:021 They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught. 001:022 They were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes. 001:023 Immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 001:024 saying, "Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!" 001:025 Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" 001:026 The unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. 001:027 They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him!" 001:028 The report of him went out immediately everywhere into all the region of Galilee and its surrounding area. 001:029 Immediately, when they had come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 001:030 Now Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 001:031 He came and took her by the hand, and raised her up...
