Mark - Chapter 1

The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
  • It is printed in the prophet Isaiah: Look, I am going to send my messenger in front of you to prepare your way before you.
  • A voice of one that cry in the desert: Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight.
  • John the Baptist was in the desert, proclaiming a baptism of the repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
  • All Judaea and all the people of the Jerusalem made their way to him, and as they were baptised by him in the river Jordan they confessed their sins.
  • John wore a garment of the camel-skin, and he lived on locusts and wild honey.
  • In the course of his preaching and he said, 'After me is coming someone who is more powerful than me, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals.
  • I have baptised you with the water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.'
  • It was at this time that Jesus came from the Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised in the Jordan by John.
  • And at once, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, was like a dove, descending on him.
  • And a voice came from the heaven, 'You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.'
  • And at once one of the Spirit drove him into the desert
  • And he remained there for upto forty days, and was put to the test by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and the angels were looked after him.
  • After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel of God saying,
  • The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at his hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.'
  • As he was walking along by the Lake of Galilee he saw Simon and Simon's brother Andrew casting a net in the lake -- for they were been fishermen.
  • And at once they left their nets and then followed him.
  • Going on a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they too were in their boat, mending with the nets.
  • At once he called them and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed, they went one after him.
  • They went as far as Capernaum, and at once on the Sabbath he went into the synagogue and began to teach them.
  • And his teaching made a deep impression on them because, they unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority.
