Amplified Bible

Mark 1

The Preaching of John the Baptist

1The beginning of the [facts regarding the] good news of [a]Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

As it is written and forever remains in the [writings of the] prophet Isaiah:

Behold, I send My messenger ahead of You,
Who will prepare Your way—

A voice of one shouting in the wilderness,
Prepare the way of the Lord,
[b]Make His paths straight!’”

[c]John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins [that is, requiring a change of one’s old way of thinking, turning away from sin and seeking God and His righteousness]. And all the country of Judea and all the people of Jerusalem were continually going out to him; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair and had a [wide] leather [d]band around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And he was preaching, saying, “After me comes He who is mightier [more powerful, more noble] than I, and I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the straps of His sandals [even as His slave]. As for me, I baptized you [who came to me] with water [only]; but He will baptize you [who truly repent] [e]with the Holy Spirit.”

The Baptism of Jesus

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 [f]Immediately coming up out of the water, he (John) saw the heavens torn open, and the [g]Spirit like a dove descending on Him (Jesus); 11 and a [h]voice came out of heaven saying: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased and delighted!”

12 Immediately the [Holy] Spirit forced Him out into the wilderness. 13 He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted [to do evil] by Satan; and He was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered continually to Him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

14 Now after John [the Baptist] was arrested and [i]taken into custody, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the good news of [the kingdom of] God, 15 and saying, “The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] and believe [with a deep, abiding trust] in the good news [regarding salvation].”

16 As Jesus was walking by the shore of the [j]Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon [Peter] and Simon’s brother, [k]Andrew, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, [l]Follow Me [as My disciples, accepting Me as your Master and Teacher and walking the same path of life that I walk], and I will make you fishers of men.” 18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him [becoming His disciples, believing and trusting in Him and following His example]. 19 Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and his brother John, who were also in the boat mending and cleaning the nets. 20 Immediately Jesus called to them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired workers, and went away to follow Him [becoming His disciples, believing and trusting in Him and following His example].

21 They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 They were completely amazed at His teaching; because He was teaching them as one having [God-given] authority, and not as the scribes. 23 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out [terribly from the depths of his throat], 24 saying, “[m]What business do You have with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” 25 Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet (muzzled, silenced), and come out of him!” 26 The unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions, and screeching with a loud voice, came out of him. 27 They were all so amazed that they debated and questioned each other, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits (demons), and they obey Him.” 28 Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere throughout the district surrounding Galilee.

Healing the Crowds

29 And immediately they left the synagogue and went into the house of Simon [Peter] and Andrew, accompanied by James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they told Him about her. 31 Jesus went to her, and taking her by the hand, raised her up; and the fever left her, and she began to serve them [as her guests].

32 Now when evening came, after the sun had set [and the Sabbath Day had ended, in a steady stream] they were bringing to Him all who were sick and those who were under the power of demons, 33 until the whole city had gathered together at the door. 34 And Jesus healed many who were suffering with various diseases; and He drove out many demons, but would not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him [recognizing Him as the Son of God].

35 Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left [the house], and went out to a secluded place, and was praying there. 36 Simon [Peter] and his companions searched [everywhere, looking anxiously] for Him, 37 and they found Him and said, “Everybody is looking for You!” 38 He replied, “Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so I may preach there also; that is why I came [from the Father].” 39 So He went throughout Galilee, preaching [the gospel] in their synagogues and casting out demons.

40 And a leper came to Him, begging Him and falling on his knees before Him, saying, “If You are willing, You are able to make me [n]clean.” 41 Moved with compassion [for his suffering], Jesus reached out with His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 The leprosy left him immediately and he was cleansed [completely healed and restored to health]. 43 And Jesus [deeply moved] admonished him sternly and sent him away immediately, 44 saying to him, “See that you tell no one anything [about this]; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your purification what Moses commanded, as proof to them [that you are really healed].” 45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the news [of his healing], to such an extent that Jesus could no longer openly enter a city [where He was known], but stayed out in the unpopulated places; yet people were still coming to Him from everywhere.

Notas al pie

  1. Mark 1:1 Mark’s gospel is believed to be directed primarily to Gentile believers in Rome. Since Gentiles would not necessarily be familiar with the Jewish title Messiah, he emphasizes instead the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.
  2. Mark 1:3 A ruler or nobleman traveling in the wilderness would have a crew of workmen preparing and clearing the road ahead of him. In spiritual terms, John the Baptist was clearing the way for the arrival of the Messiah by preparing the hearts of his followers.
  3. Mark 1:4 Considered the last of the Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist was the son of Zecharias (Zechariah) the priest and his wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were related (Luke 1:36), and Mary may have been with Elizabeth at the time John was born (Luke 1:56). John the Baptist is not to be confused with John the Apostle who, along with his brother James, was among the twelve disciples of Jesus.
  4. Mark 1:6 This band (sash, girdle) was about six inches wide and had clasps or fasteners in front. It was used to carry personal items such as a dagger, money or other necessary things.
  5. Mark 1:8 The Greek here can be translated with, in, or by.
  6. Mark 1:10 Mark uses the word “immediately” almost forty times in his gospel.
  7. Mark 1:10 The three persons of the Godhead were present: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  8. Mark 1:11 See note Matt 3:17.
  9. Mark 1:14 Cf 6:17 ff.
  10. Mark 1:16 A fresh water lake about 13 miles long and 7 miles wide, almost 700 feet below sea level and center of a busy fishing industry.
  11. Mark 1:16 One of the followers of John the Baptist (John 1:40).
  12. Mark 1:17 The concept of “follow” can represent three separate possibilities: in the early stages of His ministry, (1) walking with Him physically (literally), that is merely being in His presence regardless of personal belief or commitment; (2) accepting and identifying with the salvation He offered; and later on (3) being identified with Him by being subject to the scorn and rejection of unbelievers because of personal belief and commitment to Him.
  13. Mark 1:24 Lit What to me and to you, originally a Hebrew idiom which does not translate well into English. The idiom is meant to inform the other person that the speaker is not aware of any obligation between them and does not wish to deal with the other person (cf 2 Sam 16:10).
  14. Mark 1:40 Lepers were ceremonially unclean according to OT law (Lev 13:45, etc.) and were not to come into physical contact with other people. The leper’s request was the same as asking for healing.

마가복음 1

1하나님의 아들 예수 그리스도에 대한 기쁜 소식의 시작이다.

[a]예언서에는 [b]“보라! 내가 너보다 앞서 내 사자를 보내겠다. 그가 네 앞에서 네 길을 준비할 것이다.”

[c]“광야에서 어떤 사람의 외치는 소리가 들린다. ‘너희는 주를 위해 길을 준비하라. 그의 길을 곧게 하라’ ” 고 쓰여 있다.

세례 요한

이 말씀대로 [d]세례 요한이 광야에 나타나 죄를 용서받게 하려고 회개의 [e]세례를 전파하였다.

그러자 온 유대 지방과 예루살렘 사람이 모두 나아와 죄를 고백하고 요단강에서 요한에게 세례를 받았다.

요한은 낙타 털옷을 입고 허리에 가죽띠를 띠고 메뚜기와 산꿀을 먹고 살았다.

그리고 그는 이렇게 외쳤다. “내 뒤에 나보다 더 능력 있는 분이 오신다. 나는 몸을 구푸려 그분의 신발끈을 풀어 드릴 자격도 없다.

나는 너희에게 물로 세례를 주지만 그분은 성령으로 세례를 주실 것이다.”

그 무렵 예수님이 갈릴리 나사렛에서 요단강으로 오셔서 요한에게 세례를 받으셨다.

10 예수님은 물에서 올라오시는 순간 하늘이 열리고 성령님이 비둘기같이 자기에게 내리시는 것을 보셨다.

11 그리고 하늘에서 “너는 내가 사랑하고 기뻐하는 내 아들이다” 라는 음성이 들려왔다.

12 그러고 나서 즉시 성령님은 예수님을 광야로 내보내셨다.

13 예수님이 거기서 40일 동안 사탄에게 시험을 받으며 들짐승과 함께 지내시자 천사들이 시중들었다.

14 요한이 잡힌 후 예수님은 갈릴리로 가셔서 하나님의 기쁜 소식을 전파하시며

15 “드디어 때가 왔다! 하나님의 나라가 가까웠으니 회개하고 기쁜 소식을 믿어라!” 하고 말씀하셨다.

제자들을 부르심

16 예수님은 갈릴리 [f]바닷가를 지나가시다가 그물을 던져 고기 잡는 어부 시몬과 그의 형제 안드레를 보셨다.

17 예수님이 그들에게 “나를 따라오너라. 내가 너희를 사람 낚는 어부가 되게 하겠다” 하시자

18 그들은 곧 그물을 버려 두고 예수님을 따랐다.

19 예수님은 좀더 가시다가 세베대의 두 아들 야고보와 요한이 배에서 그물을 손질하는 것을 보시고

20 즉시 부르셨다. 그러자 그들은 자기들의 아버지 세베대와 일꾼들을 배에 남겨 둔 채 예수님을 따라 나섰다.

21 그들 일행은 가버나움으로 갔다. 곧 안식일이 되어 예수님은 회당에 들어가 가르치셨다.

22 그의 가르침이 율법학자들과는 달리 권위가 있으므로 사람들은 놀라지 않을 수 없었다.

많은 병자를 고치심

23 마침 그 회당에 더러운 귀신 들린 사람 하나가 있었다. 그가 큰 소리로

24 “나사렛 예수님, 우리가 당신과 무슨 상관이 있습니까? 우리를 없애려고 오셨습니까? 나는 당신이 하나님의 거룩한 아들임을 압니다” 하고 외쳤다.

25 예수님이 그를 꾸짖으며 “떠들지 말고 그 사람에게서 나오너라” 하시자

26 더러운 귀신은 그 사람에게 발작을 일으켜 놓고 큰 소리를 지르며 나왔다.

27 이 광경을 본 사람들이 모두 놀라 “이게 어떻게 된 일이냐? 정말 권위 있는 새로운 가르침이다! 더러운 귀신들도 그 명령에 복종하는군!” 하며 서로 이야기하였다.

28 그래서 곧 예수님의 소문이 갈릴리 온 지방에 널리 퍼졌다.

29 예수님은 회당을 떠나 야고보와 요한을 데리고 시몬과 안드레의 집으로 들어가셨다.

30 이때 시몬의 장모가 열병으로 누워 있었다. 사람들이 이 일을 예수님께 말씀드리자

31 예수님은 가셔서 그녀의 손을 잡아 일으키셨다. 그러자 즉시 열병이 떠나고 시몬의 장모는 예수님의 일행에게 시중을 들었다.

32 날이 저물었을 때 사람들이 병들고 귀신 들린 사람들을 모두 예수님께 데려왔다.

33 그리고 온 마을 사람들도 문 앞에 모여들었다.

34 그래서 예수님은 갖가지 병으로 고생하는 많은 사람들을 고쳐 주시고 귀신들을 쫓아내셨다. 그러나 예수님은 귀신들이 자기를 잘 알기 때문에 귀신들이 말하는 것을 허락하지 않으셨다.

35 이른 새벽 예수님은 일어나 외딴 곳에 가서 기도하고 계셨다.

36 예수님을 찾아다니던 시몬과 그 일행은

37 예수님을 만나자 “모든 사람이 주님을 찾고 있습니다” 하고 말하였다.

38 예수님은 그들에게 “가까운 이웃 마을에도 가서 전도하자. 나는 이 일을 하려고 왔다” 하시고

39 온 갈릴리를 다니시며 회당에서 전도하고 귀신들을 쫓아내셨다.

40 한 문둥병자가 예수님께 와서 무릎을 꿇고 “주님께서 원하시면 저를 깨끗이 고치실 수 있습니다” 하였다.

41 예수님이 불쌍히 여겨 그에게 손을 대시며 “내가 원한다. 깨끗이 나아라” 하고 말씀하시자

42 즉시 그의 문둥병이 나았다.

43 예수님은 곧 그를 보내시며 엄하게 타일렀다.

44 “너는 아무에게도 이 일을 말하지 말고 제사장에게 가서 네 몸을 보이고 모세가 명령한 예물을 드려 네가 깨끗해진 것을 사람들에게 증거하여라.”

45 그러나 그는 나가서 이 일을 마구 퍼뜨렸다. 그래서 예수님은 더 이상 드러나게 마을로 들어가실 수가 없어서 외딴 곳에 가 계셨다. 그러나 사람들은 계속 여기저기서 모여들었다.
