Mark 1

1
The Messiah’s Herald
1The beginning # Jn 1:1; Php 4:15 of the gospel # Mt 3:1-12; Lk 3:1-18 of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. # Jn 5:19; Heb 1:2 2As it is written in Isaiah # Mt 3:3; 4:14; 12:17 the prophet: # Other mss read in the prophets # Lk 16:29
Look, I am sending My messenger # Mt 13:49 ahead of You,
who will prepare Your way. # Other mss add before You
3A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: # Jn 1:23
Prepare the way for the Lord; # Lk 10:1; 17:5
make His paths straight! # Is 40:3; Mal 3:1 # Is 40:3; Mal 3:1
4John came baptizing # Or John the Baptist came, or John the Baptizer came # Lk 7:29; Ac 22:16 in the wilderness # Rv 12:6 and preaching a baptism of repentance # Or a baptism based on repentance # Lk 3:3; Ac 13:24; 19:4; 26:20 for the forgiveness # Mt 9:2; Lk 24:47 of sins. # Jn 15:22; Ac 26:18 5The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem # Mt 23:37; Jn 11:36 were flocking to him, and they were baptized by him in the Jordan # Gn 13:10; Ps 114:3; Lk 3:3 River as they confessed # Ac 19:18 their sins. # Jn 15:22; Rm 6:23; 1Pt 4:1 6John wore a camel-hair garment with a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts # Rv 9:3,7 and wild honey. # Rv 10:9-10 7He was preaching: “Someone more powerful # Rv 18:8 than I will come after me. # Jn 1:15 I am not worthy # Mt 3:11 to stoop down and untie the strap of His sandals. # Lk 3:16; Ac 13:23-25 8I have baptized you with # Or in water, # Jn 1:26,31,33; Ac 1:5; 8:36; 11:16 but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” # Jn 1:33
The Baptism of Jesus
9In # Mt 3:13-17; Lk 3:21-23 those days Jesus came from Nazareth # Mt 2:23; 4:13; 21:11; Lk 1:26; 2:4,39,51; 4:16; Jn 1:45-46 in Galilee # Mt 17:22 and was baptized in the Jordan by John. 10As soon as He came up out of the water, He saw the heavens # Mt 24:35; Lk 12:33; Ac 17:24; Eph 6:9; Rv 21:10 being torn open and the Spirit descending to Him like a dove. 11And a voice # Jn 5:37 came from heaven: # Rv 14:13
You are My beloved # Lk 20:13; Eph 1:6; Phm 1 Son; # Ps 2:7
I take delight # Is 42:1 in You! # Or In You I am well pleased
The Temptation of Jesus
12Immediately # Mt 4:1-11; Lk 4:1-13 the Spirit # Jn 1:33 drove # 3Jn 10 Him into the wilderness. # Mt 3:1; Rv 12:6 13He was in the wilderness 40 days, being tempted # Jms 1:13 by Satan. # Mt 4:1,10; Ac 13:10 He was with the wild animals, # Rv 6:8 and the angels # Mt 13:49; Ac 5:19; Rv 14:6 began to serve Him.
Ministry in Galilee
14After # Mt 4:17; Jn 4:45 John was arrested, # Mt 3:12; Lk 3:20; 9:7-9; Jn 3:24 Jesus went to Galilee, # Mt 17:22 preaching # Mk 13:10 the good news # Other mss add of the kingdom # Or gospel # Mk 1:1 of God: # Either from God or about God # Rm 15:16; 1Th 2:2,8-9 15“The time # Ps 37:39; Lk 20:10; Jn 7:8 is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God # Mt 3:2; 6:33; 12:28; 19:24; 21:31,43; Mk 4:11; 9:1; 10:14; 12:34; 14:25; 15:43 has come # Mk 9:1 near. # Rm 13:11; 1Pt 4:7 Repent # Ac 3:19; 26:20 and believe # Mk 11:24; Jn 3:16; Ac 10:43; Rm 10:9; 1Pt 1:8-10 in the good news! ”
The First Disciples
16As # Mt 4:18-22; Lk 5:1-11 He was passing along by the Sea of Galilee, # Mt 4:18; 15:29; Jn 6:1 He saw Simon # Mt 16:17 and Andrew, # Jn 6:8 Simon’s brother. They were casting a net into the sea, # Mk 7:31 since they were fishermen.
17“Follow Me,” # Mt 4:19 Jesus told them, “and I will make you fish for # Lit you to become fishers of, # Mt 4:18-19; Lk 5:2 people! ” # Mt 4:19 18Immediately they left their nets and followed # Lk 5:11; Jn 8:12 Him. # Lk 18:28 19Going on a little farther, He saw James # Ac 12:2 the son of Zebedee # Jn 21:2 and his brother John. # Jn 21:7 They were in their boat mending their nets. 20Immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed Him. # Lk 18:28
Driving Out an Unclean Spirit
21Then # Lk 4:31-35 they went into Capernaum, # Lk 10:15 and right away He entered the synagogue # Mk 3:1; Jms 2:2 on the Sabbath # Mk 2:23; Lk 13:10 and began to teach. # Mt 28:20; Ac 4:2; 2Tm 4:11 22They were astonished # Mk 6:2 at His teaching # Mt 7:28; 22:33; Mk 11:18; Lk 4:32; Ac 2:42; 17:19 because, unlike the scribes, # Mt 2:4 He was teaching them as one having authority.
23Just then a man with an unclean # 2Co 6:17 spirit # Lk 11:24 was in their synagogue. # Jms 2:2 He cried out, # Other mss add to the beginning of v. 24: “Leave us alone. 24“What do You have to do with us, # Lit What to us and to You Jesus — Nazarene? # Mk 14:67 Have You come to destroy # Jn 6:27 us? I know who You are — the Holy # 1Co 7:14 One of God! ” # Lk 4:34; Jn 6:69; Eph 4:30
25But Jesus rebuked # 2Tm 4:2 him and said, “Be quiet, # Or Be muzzled # Mt 22:12 and come out of him! ” 26And the unclean spirit convulsed him, # Mk 9:26; Lk 9:39 shouted with a loud voice, and came out of him.
27Then they were all amazed, # Mk 10:24,32 so they began to argue # Mk 8:11 with one another, saying, “What is this? A new teaching # Mk 11:18; Ac 2:42 with authority! # Other mss read What is this? What is this new teaching? For with authority # Jd 25 He commands even the unclean # 2Co 6:17 spirits, # Lk 11:24 and they obey Him.” 28News about Him then spread throughout the entire vicinity of Galilee. # Mt 17:22
Healings at Capernaum
29As # Mt 8:14-15; Lk 4:38-39 soon as they left the synagogue, # Jms 2:2 they went into Simon # Mt 16:17 and Andrew’s # Jn 6:8 house # Mk 9:33 with James # Ac 12:2 and John. # Jn 21:7 30Simon’s mother-in-law was lying in bed with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. 31So He went to her, took her by the hand, and raised her up. # Mk 5:41 The fever # Lk 4:38 left her, # Other mss add at once and she began to serve # Phm 13 them. # Rm 12:13
32When # Mt 8:16-17; Lk 4:40-41 evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all those who were sick # Lk 5:31 and those who were demon-possessed. # Mt 9:32 33The whole town was assembled at the door, 34and He healed # Ac 8:7 many who were sick with various diseases # Ac 19:12 and drove out # 3Jn 10 many demons. # Rv 9:20; 18:2 But He would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew Him. # Mk 3:11-12; 5:7
Preaching in Galilee
35Very # Mt 4:23-25; Lk 4:42-44 early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. # Mt 14:13; Mk 6:31-32; Lk 4:42; 9:12; Rv 12:6 And He was praying # Mt 5:44; Ac 12:12 there. 36Simon # Mt 16:17 and his companions went searching for Him. 37They found Him and said, “Everyone’s looking for You! ”
38And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach # Mk 1:4 there too. This is why I have come.” 39So He went into all of Galilee, # Mt 17:22 preaching in their synagogues # Mk 3:1 and driving out demons.
A Man Cleansed
40Then # Mt 8:2-4; Lk 5:12-14 a man with a serious skin disease # Mt 11:5 came to Him and, on his knees, # Other mss omit on his knees # Mt 17:14 begged Him: “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” # 1Jn 1:7
41Moved with compassion, # Lk 15:20 Jesus reached out His hand and touched # Jn 20:17 him. “I am willing,” He told him. “Be made clean.” 42Immediately the disease # Lk 5:12 left him, and he was healed. # Lit made clean 43Then He sternly warned # Mt 9:30; Mk 14:5; Jn 11:33,38 him and sent him away # 3Jn 10 at once, 44telling him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; # Mk 5:43; 7:36; 8:26,30; 9:9; 16:8; Lk 5:14 but go and show # Rv 1:1 yourself to the priest, # Ac 4:1 and offer # Heb 5:1; 8:3 what Moses prescribed for your cleansing, # Lv 13–14; Heb 1:3 as a testimony # Mk 6:11; 1Tm 2:6 to them.” 45Yet he went out and began to proclaim # Mk 1:4; Jn 18:32 it widely and to spread the news, # Mk 4:14 with the result that Jesus could no longer enter a town openly. But He was out in deserted places, and they would come to Him from everywhere.
