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.

CHAPTER 1.
1THE beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2As it is written in Isaias the prophet: Behold I send my angel before thy face, who shall prepare the way before thee.
3A voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.
4John was in the desert baptizing, and preaching the baptism of penance, unto remission of sins.
5And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all they of Jerusalem, and were baptized by him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
6And John was clothed with camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and he ate locusts and wild honey.
7And he preached, saying: There cometh after me one mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.
8I have baptized you with water; but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
9And it came to pass, in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10And forthwith coming up out of he water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit as a dove descending, and remaining on him.
11And there came a voice from heaven: Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
12And immediately the Spirit drove him out into the desert.
13And he was in the desert forty days and forty nights, and was tempted by Satan; and he was with beasts, and the angels ministered to him.
14And after that John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
15And saying: The time is accomplished, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe the gospel.
16And passing by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother, casting nets into the sea (for they were fishermen).
17And Jesus said to them: Come after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18And immediately leaving their nets, they followed him.
19And going on from thence a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were mending their nets in the ship:
20And forthwith he called them. And leaving their father Zebedee in the ship with his hired men, they followed him.
21And they entered into Capharnaum, and forthwith upon the sabbath days going into the synagogue, he taught them.
22And they were astonished at his doctrine. For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes.
23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24Saying: What have we to do with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25And Jesus threatened him, saying: Speak no more, and go out of the man.
26And the unclean spirit tearing him, and crying out with a loud voice, went out of him.
27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying: What thing is this? what is this new doctrine? for with power he commandeth even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.
28And the fame of him was spread forthwith into all the country of Galilee.
29And immediately going out of the synagogue they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30And Simon's wife's mother lay in a fit of a fever: and forthwith they tell him of her.
31And coming to her, he lifted her up, taking her by the hand; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
32And when it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all that were ill and that were possessed with devils.
33And all the city was gathered together at the door.
34And he healed many that were troubled with divers diseases; and he cast out many devils, and he suffered them not to speak, because they knew him.
35And rising very early, going out, he went into a desert place: and there he prayed.
36And Simon, and they that were with him, followed after him.
37And when they had found him, they said to him: All seek for thee.
38And he saith to them: Let us go into the neighbouring towns and cities, that I may preach there also; for to this purpose am I come.
39And he was preaching in their synagogues, and in all Galilee, and casting out devils.
40And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down said to him: If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
41And Jesus having compassion on him, stretched forth his hand; and touching him, saith to him: I will. Be thou made clean.
42And when he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean.
43And he strictly charged him, and forthwith sent him away.
44And he saith to him: See thou tell no one; but go, shew thyself to the high priest, and offer for thy cleansing the things that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
45But he being gone out, began to publish and to blaze abroad the word: so that he could not openly go into the city, but was without in desert places: and they flocked to him from all sides.
