Knijga O Kristu

Evanđelje po Marku 1

U knjizi proroka Izaije Bog je rekao:
    'Gledajte, šaljem pred vas svojega glasnika
            i on će vam pripraviti put.[a]
    On je glas koji viče u pustinji:
    "Pripremite put za Gospodnji dolazak!
            Poravnajte za njega staze!''[b]

Taj glasnik bio je Ivan Krstitelj. živio je u pustinji i propovijedao kako se ljudi trebaju krstiti da pokažu kako su se odvratili od svojih grijeha i obratili se Bogu da im oprosti.

Ljudi iz Jeruzalema i iz cijele Judeje putovali su k njemu u pustinju da ga vide i čuju. Ispovijedali su svoje grijehe, a on ih je krstio u rijeci Jordanu.

Ivanova odjeća bila je istkana od devine dlake, a bio je opasan kožnim pojasom. Hranio se skakavcima i divljim medom.

Propovijedao je: 'Uskoro dolazi netko veći od mene, kojemu nisam dostojan ni biti robom.[c]

Ja vas krstim vodom, ali on će vas krstiti Božjim Svetim Duhom.'

Isusovo krštenje

Jednog dana dođe Isus iz Nazareta u Galileji i Ivan ga krsti u rijeci Jordanu.

10 Čim Isus iziđe iz vode, ugleda kako se otvaraju nebesa i kako Duh u obliku goluba silazi na njega.

11 Začuje se glas: 'Ti si moj ljubljeni Sin! Ti si moja radost!'

Isusove kušnje

12 Odmah nakon toga Duh nagna Isusa da ode u pustinju.

13 Tamo je ostao četrdeset dana i Sotona ga je kušao. Boravio je među divljim životinjama, a služili su mu anđeli.

Prvi učenici

14 Pošto je kralj Herod zatvorio Ivana, Isus ode u Galileju propovijedati Božju Radosnu vijest.

15 'Napokon je došlo vrijeme,' naviještao je, 'blizu je Božje kraljevstvo! Odvratite se od svojih grijeha i povjerujte Radosnoj vijesti.'

16 Jednoga dana, prolazeći obalom Galilejskog jezera, opazi Šimuna i njegova brata Andriju kako mrežama hvataju ribu jer su po zanimanju bili ribari.

17 'Pođite za mnom i učinit ću vas ribarima ljudi!' pozove ih Isus.

18 Oni smjesta ostave svoje mreže i pođu za njim.

19 Malo dalje uz obalu ugleda Zebedejeve sinove Jakova i Ivana kako u lađici krpaju mreže.

20 Pozove i njih, a oni odmah ostave svojeg oca Zebedeja u lađi s nadničarima i pođu za njim.

Isus istjeruje nečistog duha

21 Isus i njegovi sljedbenici stigoše u grad Kafarnaum. Odmah u subotu odu u sinagogu te je Isus ondje poučavao.

22 Svi okupljeni bili su zadivljeni njegovim učenjem jer ih je poučavao kao onaj koji ima vlast, a ne kao pismoznanci.

23 Tu se zatekao čovjek opsjednut nečistim duhom, koji počne vikati:

24 'Zašto nas uznemiruješ, Isuse Nazarećanine? Zar si nas došao uništiti? Znam tko si: ti si Svetac Božji!'

25 Isus mu zaprijeti: 'Umukni i iziđi iz njega!'

26 Nato on krikne, žestoko protrese čovjeka i iziđe iz njega.

27 Svi nazočni silno se zaprepaste i počnu raspravljati o tome što se dogodilo. 'Kakvo je to novo učenje?' uzbuđeno su pitali. 'Ima takvu silnu vlast! Čak se i nečisti duhovi pokoravaju njegovim zapovijedima!'

28 Vijest o tome što je učinio brzo se pronijela cijelom pokrajinom Galilejom.

Mnoga ozdravljenja

29 Pošto iziđe iz sinagoge, Isus s Jakovom i Ivanom pođe u Šimunovu i Andrijinu kuću.

30 Ondje je Šimunova punica ležala u velikoj vrućici te to odmah kazaše Isusu.

31 On joj priđe, uhvati ju za ruku i podigne, a vrućica odmah prestane pa se ona digne i pripremi im jelo.

32 Uvečer, kad je sunce zašlo, dovedu mu brojne bolesnike i opsjednute,

33 pa se sav grad skupio pred vratima.

34 Isus je iscijelio brojne bolesnike od najrazličitijih bolesti i brojnim zlodusima zapovjedio da iziđu iz svojih žrtava. Ali nije dopustio zlodusima da govore jer su znali tko je on.

Isus propovijeda u Galileji

35 Drugog jutra ustao je prije zore, povukao se na pusto mjesto i ondje se molio.

36 Šimun i ostali krenu ga potražiti.

37 Kad ga pronađu, rekoše mu: 'Svi te traže.'

38 On im odgovori: 'Hajdemo i dalje, u druga mjesta. I njima moram propovijedati poruku. Zbog toga sam došao.'

39 Tako je proputovao cijelu Galileju propovijedajući po sinagogama i istjerujući zloduhe.

Isus iscjeljuje gubavca

40 Jednom dođe k njemu neki gubavac, klekne pred njega i zamoli ga: 'Ako hoćeš, možeš me ozdraviti!'

41 Isus se sažali, ispruži ruku, dotakne ga i reče: 'Hoću! Budi čist!'

42 Gube odmah nestane i čovjek postane čist.

43 Otpravljajući ga, Isus ga strogo upozori:

44 'Nikome o tomu ne govori, već idi ravno svećeniku te sa sobom ponesi žrtveni dar prema Mojsijevu zakonu, kao javno svjedočanstvo tvojeg ozdravljenja.'

45 Ali čovjek ode i počne svima govoriti što mu se dogodilo; zbog toga Isusa opkoli toliko mnoštvo da više nije mogao javno ući u bilo koji grad, već se morao zadržavati vani, na samotnim mjestima. A ljudi su stizali sa svih strana.

King James Version

Mark 1

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

As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.

I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

12 And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

19 And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

43 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

44 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
