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 Isaiah the Prophet,
"See, I am sending My messenger before Thee, Who will prepare Thy
way"; 001:003 "The voice of one crying aloud: `In the Desert prepare a
road for the Lord: Make His highways straight.'" 001:004 So John the
Baptizer came, and was in the Desert proclaiming a baptism of the
penitent for forgiveness of sins. 001:005 There went out to him people
of all classes from Judaea, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem of all ranks,
and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, making open confession
of their sins. 001:006 As for John, his garment was of camel's hair, and
he wore a loincloth of leather; and his food was locusts and wild honey.
001:007 His announcement was, "There is One coming after me
mightier than I--One whose sandal-strap I am unworthy to stoop down
and unfasten. 001:008 I have baptized you with water, but He will
baptize you with the Holy Spirit." 001:009 At that time Jesus came
from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan;
001:010 and immediately on His coming up out of the water He saw an
opening in the sky, and the Spirit like a dove coming down to Him;
001:011 and a voice came from the sky, saying, "Thou art My Son
dearly loved: in Thee is My delight." 001:012 At once the Spirit
impelled Him to go out into the Desert, 001:013 where He remained for
forty days, tempted by Satan; and He was among the wild beasts, but
the angels waited upon Him. 001:014 Then, after John had been thrown
into prison, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming God's Good News.
001:015 "The time has fully come," He said, "and the Kingdom of God
is close at hand: repent, and believe this Good News. 001:016 One day,
passing along the shore of the Lake of Galilee, He saw Simon and

Andrew, Simon's brother, throwing their nets in the Lake; for they were
fisherman. 001:017 "Come and follow me," said Jesus, "and I will
make you fishers for men." 001:018 At once they left their nets and
followed Him. 001:019 Going on a little further He saw James the son
of Zabdi and his brother John: they also were in the boat mending the
nets, and He immediately called them. 001:020 They therefore left their
father Zabdi in the boat with the hired men, and went and followed
Him. 001:021 So they came to Capernaum, and on the next Sabbath He
went to the synagogue and began to teach. 001:022 The people listened
with amazement to His teaching-- for there was authority about it: it
was very different from that of the Scribes-- 001:023 when all at once,
there in their synagogue, a man under the power of a foul spirit
screamed out: 001:024 "What have you to do with us, Jesus the
Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--God's
Holy One." 001:025 But Jesus reprimanded him, saying, "Silence!
come out of him." 001:026 So the foul spirit, after throwing the man
into convulsions, came out of him with a loud cry. 001:027 And all
were amazed and awe-struck, so they began to ask one another, "What
does this mean? Here is a new sort of teaching-- and a tone of authority!
And even to foul spirits he
