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.

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.
