Knijga O Kristu

Marko 1:1-45

Uloga Ivana Krstitelja

(Mt 3:1-12; Lk 3:2-16; Iv 1:19-28)

1Ovo je početak Radosne vijesti o Božjemu Sinu Isusu Kristu. 2U Knjizi proroka Izaije Bog je rekao:

“Gledajte, šaljem pred vas svojega glasnika

i on će vam pripraviti put.1:2 Malahija 3:1.

3On je glas koji viče u pustinji:

‘Pripremite put za Gospodnji dolazak!

Poravnajte za njega staze!’”1:3 Izaija 40:3.

4Taj 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. 5Ljudi 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. 6Ivanova odjeća bila je istkana od devine dlake, a bio je opasan kožnim pojasom. Hranio se skakavcima i divljim medom. 7Propovijedao je: “Uskoro dolazi netko veći od mene, toliko velik da mu ja nisam dostojan ni robom biti.1:7 U grčkome: odvezati sandale. 8Ja vas krstim vodom, ali on će vas krstiti Svetim Duhom.”

Isusovo krštenje

(Mt 3:13-17; Lk 3:21-22; Iv 1:32-34)

9Jednog dana dođe Isus iz Nazareta u Galileji i Ivan ga krsti u rijeci Jordanu. 10Čim Isus iziđe iz vode, ugleda kako se otvaraju nebesa i kako Duh u obliku goluba silazi na njega. 11Začuje se glas: “Ti si moj ljubljeni Sin! Ti si moja radost!”

Isusove kušnje

(Mt 4:1-11; Lk 4:1-13)

12Odmah nakon toga Duh nagna Isusa da ode u pustinju. 13Tamo je ostao četrdeset dana i Sotona ga je kušao. Boravio je među divljim životinjama, a služili su mu anđeli.

Prvi učenici

(Mt 4:12-22; Lk 4:14-15; 5:2-11)

14Pošto 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!”

16Jednoga dana, prolazeći obalom Galilejskog jezera, opazi Šimuna i njegova brata Andriju kako mrežama hvataju ribu jer su po zanimanju bili ribari. 17Reče im: “Pođite za mnom i ja ću vas učiniti ribarima ljudi!”. 18Oni smjesta ostave svoje mreže te pođu za njim.

19Malo dalje uz obalu ugleda Zebedejeve sinove Jakova i Ivana kako u lađici krpaju mreže. 20Pozove i njih, a oni odmah ostave svojeg oca Zebedeja u lađi s nadničarima i pođu za njim.

Isus istjeruje nečistog duha

(Lk 4:31-37)

21Isus i njegovi sljedbenici stigoše u grad Kafarnaum. Odmah u subotu odu u sinagogu te je Isus ondje poučavao. 22Svi okupljeni bili su zadivljeni njegovim učenjem jer ih je poučavao kao onaj koji ima vlast, a ne kao pismoznanci.

23Tu 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!”

25Isus mu zaprijeti: “Umukni i iziđi iz njega!” 26Nato on krikne, žestoko protrese čovjeka i iziđe iz njega.

27Svi 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!” 28Vijest o tome što je učinio brzo se pronijela cijelom pokrajinom Galilejom.

Mnoga ozdravljenja

(Mt 8:14-17; Lk 4:38-41)

29Pošto iziđe iz sinagoge, Isus s Jakovom i Ivanom pođe u Šimunovu i Andrijinu kuću. 30Ondje je Šimunova punica ležala u velikoj vrućici te to odmah kazaše Isusu. 31On joj priđe, uhvati ju za ruku i podigne, a vrućica prestane. Žena stane ih posluživati.

32Uvečer, kad je sunce zašlo, dovedu mu sve bolesnike i opsjednute, 33pa se sav grad skupio pred vratima. 34Isus 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

(Lk 4:42-44)

35Drugog jutra ustao je prije zore, povukao se na pusto mjesto i ondje se molio. 36Šimun i ostali krenu ga potražiti. 37Kad ga pronađu, rekoše mu: “Svi te traže!”

38On im odgovori: “Hajdemo i dalje, u druga mjesta. I njima moram propovijedati poruku. Zbog toga sam došao!” 39Tako je proputovao cijelu Galileju propovijedajući po sinagogama i istjerujući zloduhe.

Isus iscjeljuje gubavca

(Mt 8:2-4; Lk 5:12-16)

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

41Isus se sažali, ispruži ruku, dotakne ga i reče: “Hoću! Budi čist!” 42Gube odmah nestane i čovjek postane čist. 43Otpravljajući 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 svojeg ozdravljenja.”

45Ali 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 1:1-45

1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; 2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5And there went out unto him all the land of Judæa, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6And 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; 7And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. 9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 12And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. 13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. 14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. 16Now 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. 17And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. 19And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. 20And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him. 21And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24Saying, 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. 25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27And 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. 28And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee. 29And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. 31And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. 32And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. 33And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34And 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. 35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 36And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. 37And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. 38And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 39And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils. 40And 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. 41And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 44And 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. 45But 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.
