1 The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 As it has been written by the prophet Isaiah: "Behold, I send my Angel before your face, who shall prepare your way before you.
3 The voice of one crying out in the desert: Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight his paths."
4 John was in the desert, baptizing and preaching a baptism of repentance, as a remission of sins.
5 And there went out to him all the region of Judea and all those of Jerusalem, and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.
6 And John was clothed with camel's hair and with a leather belt around his waist. And he ate locusts and wild honey.
7 And he preached, saying: "A stronger one comes after me. I am not worthy to reach down and loosen the laces of his shoes.
8 I have baptized you with water. Yet truly, he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9 And it happened that, in those days, Jesus arrived from Nazareth of Galilee. And he was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And immediately, upon ascending from the water, he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit, like a dove, descending, and remaining with him.
11 And there was a voice from heaven: "You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased."
12 And immediately the Spirit prompted him into the desert.
13 And he was in the desert for forty days and forty nights. And he was tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the Angels ministered to him.
14 Then, after John was handed over, Jesus went into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of the kingdom of God,
15 and saying: "For the time has been fulfilled and the kingdom of God has drawn near. Repent and believe in the Gospel."
16 And passing by the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew, casting nets into the sea, for they were fishermen.
17 And Jesus said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
18 And at once abandoning their nets, they followed him.
19 And continuing on a little ways from there, he saw James of Zebedee and his brother John, and they were mending their nets in a boat.
20 And immediately he called them. And leaving behind their father Zebedee in the boat with his hired hands, they followed him.
21 And they entered into Capernaum. And entering into the synagogue promptly on the Sabbaths, he taught them.
22 And they were astonished over his doctrine. For he was teaching them as one who has authority, and not like the scribes.
23 And in their synagogue, there was a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24 saying: "What are we to you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God."
25 And Jesus admonished him, saying, "Be silent, and depart from the man."
26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, departed from him.
27 And they were all so amazed that they inquired among themselves, saying: "What is this? And what is this new doctrine? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
28 And his fame went out quickly, throughout the entire region of Galilee.
29 And soon after departing from the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But the mother-in-law of Simon lay ill with a fever. And at once they told him about her.
31 And drawing near to her, he raised her up, taking her by the hand. And immediately the fever left her, and she ministered to them.
32 Then, when evening arrived, after the sun had set, they brought to him all who had maladies and those who had demons.
33 And the entire city was gathered together at the door.
34 And he healed many who were troubled with various illnesses. And he cast out many demons, but he would not permit them to speak, because they knew him.
35 And rising up very early, departing, he went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
36 And Simon, and those who were with him, followed after him.
37 And when they had found him, they said to him, "For everyone is seeking you."
38 And he said to them: "Let us go into the neighboring towns and cities, so that I may preach there also. Indeed, it was for this reason that I came."
39 And he was preaching in their synagogues and throughout all of Galilee, and casting out demons.
40 And a leper came to him, begging him. And kneeling down, he said to him, "If you are willing, you are able to cleanse me."
41 Then Jesus, taking pity on him, reached out his hand. And touching him, he said to him: "I am willing. Be cleansed."
42 And after he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
43 And he admonished him, and he promptly sent him away.
44 And he said to him: "See to it that you tell no one. But go and show yourself to the high priest, and offer for your cleansing that which Moses instructed, as a testimony for them."
45 But having departed, he began to preach and to disseminate the word, so that he was no longer able to openly enter a city, but had to remain outside, in deserted places. And they were gathered to him from every direction.

1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet,
Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
Who shall prepare thy way;
3The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make ye ready the way of the Lord,
Make his paths straight;
4John came, who baptized in the wilderness and preached the baptism of repentance unto remission of sins. 5And there went out unto him all the country of Judæa, and all they of Jerusalem; and they were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and had a leathern girdle about his loins, and did eat locusts and wild honey. 7And he preached, saying, There cometh after me he that is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8I baptized you in water; but he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit.
9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him: 11and a voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.
12And straightway the Spirit driveth him forth into the wilderness. 13And he was in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
14Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe in the gospel.
16And passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishers. 17And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18And straightway they left the nets, and followed him. 19And going on a little further, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending the nets. 20And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him.
21And they go into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught. 22And they were astonished at his teaching: for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes. 23And straightway there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus thou Nazarene? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. 27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What is this? a new teaching! with authority he commandeth even the unclean spirits, and they obey him. 28And the report of him went out straightway everywhere into all the region of Galilee round about.
29And straightway, when they were come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30Now Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever; and straightway they tell him of her: 31and he came and took her by the hand, and raised her up; and the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
32And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were sick, and them that were possessed with demons. 33And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him.
35And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed. 36And Simon and they that were with him followed after him; 37and they found him, and say unto him, All are seeking thee. 38And he saith unto them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end came I forth. 39And he went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons.
40And there cometh to him a leper, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 41And being moved with compassion, he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou made clean. 42And straightway the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean. 43And he strictly charged him, and straightway sent him out, 44and saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing the things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 45But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to spread abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
