1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

The Preaching of John the Baptist   Mk.1.1-8 (Judaea ) - written 45-60ce. Story opens c[ Mk.1.1-8 → ] - Mt.3.1-12, Lk.3.1-9, Jn.1.19-28
2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet,
"Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
who shall prepare thy way;

- Behold, I send my messenger Mk.1.2 - Mal.3.1
3 the voice of one crying in the wilderness:
Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight - "

- the voice of one crying in the wilderness   Mk.1.3 ( ) - - Is.40.1
4 John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

5 And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

6 Now John was clothed with camel's hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey.

7 And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.

8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."  
9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

The Baptism of Jesus Mk.1.9-11[ Mk.1.9-11 → ] - Mt.3.13-17, Lk.3.21-22
10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove;  
11 and a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."

12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. The Temptation of Jesus Mk.1.12-13 (Wilderness of Judaea) -[ Mk.1.12-13 → ] - Mt.4.1-11, Lk.4.1-13
13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to him.  
14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, The Calling of Four Fishermen Mk.1.14-20 (Capernaum) -[ Mk.1.14-20 → ] - Mt.4.18-22, Lk.4.14-15, Lk.5.1-11
15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel."  
16 And 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 fishermen.  
17 And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men."  
18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him.

19 And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets.

20 And immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and followed him.  
21 And they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. The Man with an Unclean Spirit Mk.1.21-28 (Capernaum) -[ Mk.1.21-28 → ] - Lk.4.31-37
22 And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.  
23 And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit;

24 and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God."

25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"  
26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.  
27 And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."

28 And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.  
29 And immediately he left the synagogue, and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

Jesus heals many people Mk.1.29-34 (Capernaum) -[ Mk.1.29-34 → ] - Mt.8.14-17, Lk.4.38-41
30 Now Simon's mother-in-law lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him of her.  
31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her; and she served them.

32 That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons.  
33 And the whole city was gathered together about the door.  
34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.  
35 And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose and went out to a lonely place, and there he prayed. Jesus preaches in Galilee Mk.1.35-39 (Galilee) -[ Mk.1.35-39 → ] - Lk.4.42-44
36 And Simon and those who were with him pursued him,  
37 and they found him and said to him, "Everyone is searching for you."  
38 And he said to them, "Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also; for that is why I came out."

39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.  
40 And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, "If you will, you can make me clean." The Cleansing of a Leper Mk.1.40-45 (Galilee) -[ Mk.1.40-45 → ] - Mt.8.1-4, Lk.5.12-16
41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I will; be clean."

42 And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.  
43 And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once,  
44 and said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people."

45 But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
