馬可福音 1

施洗者約翰預備道路

1有關上帝的兒子耶穌基督的福音是這樣開始的。

以賽亞先知書上說:
「看啊,
我要差遣我的使者在你前面為你預備道路。
他在曠野大聲呼喊,
『預備主的道,
修直祂的路。』」

果然,約翰出現了,他在曠野勸人悔改,接受洗禮,使罪得到赦免。 猶太全境和耶路撒冷的居民都到約翰那裡承認他們的罪,在約旦河裡接受他的洗禮。

約翰身穿駱駝毛的衣服,腰束皮帶,吃的是蝗蟲和野蜜。 他傳道說:「在我之後,有一位能力比我更大的要來,我連彎腰替祂解鞋帶也不配。 我是用水給你們施洗,但祂要用聖靈給你們施洗。」

耶穌受洗

那時,耶穌從加利利的拿撒勒來約旦河接受約翰的洗禮。 10 耶穌從水中一上來,就看見天開了,聖靈好像鴿子一樣降在祂身上, 11 從天上有聲音說:「你是我的愛子,我甚喜悅你。」

耶穌受試探

12 聖靈隨即催促祂到曠野。 13 祂在曠野受撒旦的試探四十天。祂與野獸在一起,有天使服侍祂。

呼召四漁夫

14 約翰被捕後,耶穌來到加利利宣講上帝的福音,說: 15 「時候到了,上帝的國臨近了,你們要悔改,相信福音。」

16 耶穌沿著加利利湖邊走,看見兩個漁夫——西門和他的弟弟安得烈正在湖上撒網捕魚。 17 耶穌對他們說:「來跟從我!我要使你們成為得人的漁夫。」 18 他們立刻拋下漁網,跟從了耶穌。

19 耶穌往前走了不遠,又看見西庇太的兩個兒子雅各和約翰正在船上補網, 20 便立刻呼召他們。他們就辭別父親和船上的工人,跟從了耶穌。

傳道趕鬼

21 他們到了迦百農,耶穌在安息日去會堂裡講道。 22 那裡的人都很吃驚,因為祂教導他們時像個有權柄的人,不像律法教師。 23 當時會堂裡有一個被污鬼附身的人喊道: 24 「拿撒勒的耶穌啊,我們和你有什麼關係?你是來毀滅我們嗎?我知道你是誰,你是上帝的聖者!」

25 耶穌責備牠說:「住口,從他身上出來!」

26 污鬼使那人抽搐了一陣,大叫一聲,就出來了。 27 在場的人十分驚訝,彼此議論說:「這是怎麼回事?真是充滿權柄的新教導啊!竟然連污鬼都服從祂的命令。」 28 於是,耶穌的名聲立刻傳遍了整個加利利。

醫病趕鬼

29 耶穌同雅各和約翰離開會堂,來到西門和安得烈家。 30 當時西門的岳母正發燒,躺在床上,他們立刻把這事告訴耶穌。 31 耶穌走到她的床邊,拉著她的手扶她起來,她的燒立刻退了,便起來服侍他們。

32 日落之後,有人把病人和被鬼附身的人都帶來見耶穌。 33 全城的人都聚在門前。 34 耶穌醫好了許多患各種疾病的人,又趕出很多鬼。祂不准鬼說話,因為鬼認識祂。

在加利利傳道

35 第二天清早,天還沒亮,耶穌就起來獨自走到曠野去禱告。 36 西門和同伴們四處尋找耶穌, 37 找到了,便對祂說:「大家都在找你呢!」

38 耶穌卻回答說:「我們到附近的鄉鎮去吧,我也好在那裡傳道,因為我就是為這事來的。」

39 於是,耶穌走遍加利利,在各會堂傳道,趕鬼。

治好痲瘋病人

40 有一次,一個患痲瘋病的人來到耶穌面前,跪下央求:「只要你肯,一定能使我潔淨。」

41 耶穌動了慈心,就伸手摸他,說:「我肯,你潔淨了吧!」 42 那人的痲瘋病立即消失了,他就潔淨了。 43 耶穌讓他回去並鄭重地叮囑: 44 「不要把這事告訴別人,要去讓祭司察看你的身體,並照摩西的規定獻祭,向眾人證明你已經潔淨了。」

45 但那人離開之後,卻到處傳揚這件事,以致耶穌無法再公開進城。祂只能待在城外的曠野,可是人們仍從各處來找祂。

New Living Translation

Mark 1

John the Baptist Prepares the Way

1This is the Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.[a] It began just as the prophet Isaiah had written:

“Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
    and he will prepare your way.[b]
He is a voice shouting in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming!
    Clear the road for him!’[c]

This messenger was John the Baptist. He was in the wilderness and preached that people should be baptized to show that they had repented of their sins and turned to God to be forgiven. All of Judea, including all the people of Jerusalem, went out to see and hear John. And when they confessed their sins, he baptized them in the Jordan River. His clothes were woven from coarse camel hair, and he wore a leather belt around his waist. For food he ate locusts and wild honey.

John announced: “Someone is coming soon who is greater than I am—so much greater that I’m not even worthy to stoop down like a slave and untie the straps of his sandals. I baptize you with[d] water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit!”

The Baptism and Temptation of Jesus

One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River. 10 As Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Holy Spirit descending on him[e] like a dove. 11 And a voice from heaven said, “You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.”

12 The Spirit then compelled Jesus to go into the wilderness, 13 where he was tempted by Satan for forty days. He was out among the wild animals, and angels took care of him.

14 Later on, after John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee, where he preached God’s Good News.[f] 15 “The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”

The First Disciples

16 One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon[g] and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. 17 Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 18 And they left their nets at once and followed him.

19 A little farther up the shore Jesus saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat repairing their nets. 20 He called them at once, and they also followed him, leaving their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired men.

Jesus Casts Out an Evil Spirit

21 Jesus and his companions went to the town of Capernaum. When the Sabbath day came, he went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike the teachers of religious law.

23 Suddenly, a man in the synagogue who was possessed by an evil[h] spirit cried out, 24 “Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”

25 But Jesus reprimanded him. “Be quiet! Come out of the man,” he ordered. 26 At that, the evil spirit screamed, threw the man into a convulsion, and then came out of him.

27 Amazement gripped the audience, and they began to discuss what had happened. “What sort of new teaching is this?” they asked excitedly. “It has such authority! Even evil spirits obey his orders!” 28 The news about Jesus spread quickly throughout the entire region of Galilee.

Jesus Heals Many People

29 After Jesus left the synagogue with James and John, they went to Simon and Andrew’s home. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. They told Jesus about her right away. 31 So he went to her bedside, took her by the hand, and helped her sit up. Then the fever left her, and she prepared a meal for them.

32 That evening after sunset, many sick and demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. 33 The whole town gathered at the door to watch. 34 So Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who he was, he did not allow them to speak.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

35 Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray. 36 Later Simon and the others went out to find him. 37 When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.”

38 But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will preach to them, too. That is why I came.” 39 So he traveled throughout the region of Galilee, preaching in the synagogues and casting out demons.

Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy

40 A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus, begging to be healed. “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said.

41 Moved with compassion,[i] Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” 42 Instantly the leprosy disappeared, and the man was healed. 43 Then Jesus sent him on his way with a stern warning: 44 “Don’t tell anyone about this. Instead, go to the priest and let him examine you. Take along the offering required in the law of Moses for those who have been healed of leprosy.[j] This will be a public testimony that you have been cleansed.”

45 But the man went and spread the word, proclaiming to everyone what had happened. As a result, large crowds soon surrounded Jesus, and he couldn’t publicly enter a town anywhere. He had to stay out in the secluded places, but people from everywhere kept coming to him.
