馬可福音 3

治好手枯的人

1耶穌又進了會堂,那裡有個人一隻手是萎縮的。 當時有好些人密切地監視耶穌,看祂是否會在安息日醫治這個人,好找藉口控告祂。

耶穌對那一隻手萎縮的人說:「起來,站在中間。」 然後問眾人:「在安息日應該行善還是作惡?救人還是害人?」他們都不吭聲。

耶穌生氣地看著四周這些人,為他們的心剛硬而感到極其難過。祂對那人說:「把手伸出來!」那人一伸手,手就立刻復原了。 法利賽人離開後,立刻和希律黨的人策劃怎樣除掉耶穌。

群眾跟隨耶穌

耶穌和門徒退到湖邊,有一大群人從加利利來跟隨祂。 還有很多人聽見耶穌所做的一切,就從猶太、耶路撒冷、以土買、約旦河東,甚至泰爾和西頓一帶來找祂。 耶穌見人多,就吩咐門徒為祂預備一條小船,以免人群擁擠祂。 10 因為祂醫好了很多人,凡有疾病的人都想擠過來摸祂。 11 每當污鬼看見祂,就俯伏在祂面前,大喊:「你是上帝的兒子!」 12 耶穌卻嚴厲地吩咐牠們不要洩露祂的身分。

選立十二使徒

13 耶穌上了山,把合自己心意的人召集到跟前, 14 從中選出十二個人,設立他們為使徒,讓他們跟隨自己,並且差遣他們出去傳道, 15 賜他們趕鬼的權柄。

16 這十二位使徒是:西門——耶穌給他取名叫彼得、 17 西庇太的兒子雅各和雅各的兄弟約翰——耶穌給他們取名叫「半尼其」,就是「雷霆之子」的意思、 18 安得烈、腓力、巴多羅買、馬太、多馬、亞勒腓的兒子雅各、達太、激進黨人西門、 19 及後來出賣耶穌的加略人猶大。

耶穌和別西卜

20 耶穌剛進家門,人群又聚集起來,以致祂和門徒連吃飯的時間也沒有。 21 祂的親屬聽見這個消息,就出來要拉住祂,因為人們說祂瘋了。

22 從耶路撒冷下來的律法教師說:「祂被別西卜附體。」又說:「祂是靠鬼王趕鬼。」

23 耶穌叫他們來,用比喻對他們說:「撒旦怎能驅逐撒旦呢? 24 一個國內部自相紛爭,必然崩潰。 25 一個家內部自相紛爭,必然破裂。 26 同樣,撒旦如果與自己為敵,自相紛爭,就站立不住,必然滅亡。 27 沒有人能進入壯漢家裡搶奪他的財物,除非先把那壯漢捆綁起來,才有可能搶劫他的家。

28 「我實在告訴你們,世人一切的罪和褻瀆的話都可以得到赦免, 29 唯有褻瀆聖靈的人永遠得不到赦免,他們要永遠擔罪。」 30 耶穌這樣說是因為他們誣衊祂被污鬼附身。

誰是耶穌的親人

31 這時候,耶穌的母親和兄弟來了,他們站在外面,託人叫耶穌。 32 有許多人圍坐在耶穌身邊,他們告訴祂說:「看啊!你的母親和兄弟在外面找你。」

33 耶穌說:「誰是我的母親?誰是我的弟兄?」 34 然後祂望著周圍坐著的人說:「看啊!我的母親、我的弟兄在這裡。 35 凡遵行上帝旨意的人就是我的弟兄、姊妹和母親。」

Mark 3

Jesus Heals on the Sabbath

1Jesus went into the synagogue again and noticed a man with a deformed hand. Since it was the Sabbath, Jesus’ enemies watched him closely. If he healed the man’s hand, they planned to accuse him of working on the Sabbath.

Jesus said to the man with the deformed hand, “Come and stand in front of everyone.” Then he turned to his critics and asked, “Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” But they wouldn’t answer him.

He looked around at them angrily and was deeply saddened by their hard hearts. Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored! At once the Pharisees went away and met with the supporters of Herod to plot how to kill Jesus.

Crowds Follow Jesus

Jesus went out to the lake with his disciples, and a large crowd followed him. They came from all over Galilee, Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, from east of the Jordan River, and even from as far north as Tyre and Sidon. The news about his miracles had spread far and wide, and vast numbers of people came to see him.

Jesus instructed his disciples to have a boat ready so the crowd would not crush him. 10 He had healed many people that day, so all the sick people eagerly pushed forward to touch him. 11 And whenever those possessed by evil[a] spirits caught sight of him, the spirits would throw them to the ground in front of him shrieking, “You are the Son of God!” 12 But Jesus sternly commanded the spirits not to reveal who he was.

Jesus Chooses the Twelve Apostles

13 Afterward Jesus went up on a mountain and called out the ones he wanted to go with him. And they came to him. 14 Then he appointed twelve of them and called them his apostles.[b] They were to accompany him, and he would send them out to preach, 15 giving them authority to cast out demons. 16 These are the twelve he chose:

Simon (whom he named Peter),
17 James and John (the sons of Zebedee, but Jesus nicknamed them “Sons of Thunder”[c]),
18 Andrew,
Philip,
Bartholomew,
Matthew,
Thomas,
James (son of Alphaeus),
Thaddaeus,
Simon (the zealot[d]),
19 Judas Iscariot (who later betrayed him).

Jesus and the Prince of Demons

20 One time Jesus entered a house, and the crowds began to gather again. Soon he and his disciples couldn’t even find time to eat. 21 When his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him away. “He’s out of his mind,” they said.

22 But the teachers of religious law who had arrived from Jerusalem said, “He’s possessed by Satan,[e] the prince of demons. That’s where he gets the power to cast out demons.”

23 Jesus called them over and responded with an illustration. “How can Satan cast out Satan?” he asked. 24 “A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse. 25 Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart. 26 And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive. 27 Let me illustrate this further. Who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger—someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house.

28 “I tell you the truth, all sin and blasphemy can be forgiven, 29 but anyone who blasphemes the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. This is a sin with eternal consequences.” 30 He told them this because they were saying, “He’s possessed by an evil spirit.”

The True Family of Jesus

31 Then Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him. They stood outside and sent word for him to come out and talk with them. 32 There was a crowd sitting around Jesus, and someone said, “Your mother and your brothers[f] are outside asking for you.”

33 Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” 34 Then he looked at those around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. 35 Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
