Marcos 2

Jesús sana a un paralítico

1Unos días después, cuando Jesús entró de nuevo en Capernaún, corrió la voz de que estaba en casa. Se aglomeraron tantos que ya no quedaba sitio ni siquiera frente a la puerta mientras él les predicaba la palabra. Entonces llegaron cuatro hombres que le llevaban un paralítico. Como no podían acercarlo a Jesús por causa de la multitud, quitaron parte del techo encima de donde estaba Jesús y, después de hacer una abertura, bajaron la camilla en la que estaba acostado el paralítico. Al ver Jesús la fe de ellos, le dijo al paralítico:

—Hijo, tus pecados quedan perdonados.

Estaban sentados allí algunos maestros de la ley, que pensaban: «¿Por qué habla éste así? ¡Está blasfemando! ¿Quién puede perdonar pecados sino sólo Dios?»

En ese mismo instante supo Jesús en su espíritu que esto era lo que estaban pensando.

—¿Por qué razonáis así? —les dijo—. ¿Qué es más fácil, decirle al paralítico: “Tus pecados son perdonados”, o decirle: “Levántate, toma tu camilla y anda”? 10 Pues para que sepáis que el Hijo del hombre tiene autoridad en la tierra para perdonar pecados —se dirigió entonces al paralítico—: 11 A ti te digo, levántate, toma tu camilla y vete a tu casa.

12 Él se levantó, tomó su camilla en seguida y salió caminando a la vista de todos. Ellos se quedaron asombrados y comenzaron a alabar a Dios.

—Jamás habíamos visto cosa igual —decían.

Llamamiento de Leví

13 De nuevo salió Jesús a la orilla del lago. Toda la gente acudía a él, y él les enseñaba. 14 Al pasar vio a Leví hijo de Alfeo, donde éste cobraba impuestos.

—Sígueme —le dijo Jesús.

Y Leví se levantó y lo siguió.

15 Sucedió que, estando Jesús a la mesa en casa de Leví, muchos recaudadores de impuestos y pecadores se sentaron con él y sus discípulos, pues ya eran muchos los que lo seguían. 16 Cuando los maestros de la ley, que eran fariseos, vieron con quién comía, les preguntaron a sus discípulos:

—¿Y éste come con recaudadores de impuestos y con pecadores?

17 Al oírlos, Jesús les contestó:

—No son los sanos los que necesitan médico sino los enfermos. Y yo no he venido a llamar a justos sino a pecadores.

Le preguntan a Jesús sobre el ayuno

18 Al ver que los discípulos de Juan y los fariseos ayunaban, algunos se acercaron a Jesús y le preguntaron:

—¿Cómo es que los discípulos de Juan y de los fariseos ayunan, pero los tuyos no?

19 Jesús les contestó:

—¿Acaso pueden ayunar los invitados del novio mientras él está con ellos? No pueden hacerlo mientras lo tienen con ellos. 20 Pero llegará el día en que se les quitará el novio, y ese día sí ayunarán. 21 Nadie remienda un vestido viejo con un retazo de tela nueva. De hacerlo así, el remiendo fruncirá el vestido y la rotura se hará peor. 22 Ni nadie echa vino nuevo en odres viejos. De hacerlo así, el vino hará reventar los odres y se echarán a perder tanto el vino como los odres. Más bien, el vino nuevo se echa en odres nuevos.

Señor del sábado

23 Un sábado, al cruzar Jesús los sembrados, sus discípulos comenzaron a arrancar a su paso unas espigas de trigo.

24 —Mira —le preguntaron los fariseos—, ¿por qué hacen ellos lo que está prohibido hacer en sábado?

25 Él les contestó:

—¿Nunca habéis leído lo que hizo David en aquella ocasión, cuando él y sus compañeros tuvieron hambre y pasaron necesidad? 26 Entró en la casa de Dios cuando Abiatar era el sumo sacerdote, y comió los panes consagrados a Dios, que sólo a los sacerdotes les es permitido comer. Y dio también a sus compañeros.

27 »El sábado se hizo para el hombre, y no el hombre para el sábado —añadió—. 28 Así que el Hijo del hombre es Señor incluso del sábado.

Mark 2

The Paralytic Healed

1When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they *came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men. Being unable to [a]get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof [b]above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying. And Jesus seeing their faith *said to the paralytic, [c]Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins [d]but God alone?” Immediately Jesus, aware [e]in His spirit that they were reasoning that way within themselves, *said to them, “Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’; or to say, ‘Get up, and pick up your pallet and walk’? 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He *said to the paralytic, 11 “I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.” 12 And he got up and immediately picked up the pallet and went out in the sight of everyone, so that they were all amazed and were glorifying God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this.”

13 And He went out again by the seashore; and all the [f]people were coming to Him, and He was teaching them.

Levi (Matthew) Called

14 As He passed by, He saw [g]Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting in the tax booth, and He *said to him, “Follow Me!” And he got up and followed Him.

15 And it *[h]happened that He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and [i]sinners [j]were dining with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many of them, and they were following Him. 16 When the scribes of the Pharisees saw that He was eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they said to His disciples, “Why is He eating and drinking with tax collectors and [k]sinners?” 17 And hearing this, Jesus *said to them, It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

18 John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and they *came and *said to Him, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not fast?” 19 And Jesus said to them, “While the bridegroom is with them, [l]the attendants of the bridegroom cannot fast, can they? So long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day.

21 “No one sews [m]a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise [n]the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results. 22 No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins.”

Question of the Sabbath

23 And it happened that He was passing through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples began to make their way along while picking the heads of grain. 24 The Pharisees were saying to Him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 25 And He *said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions became hungry; 26 how he entered the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the [o]consecrated bread, which is not lawful for anyone to eat except the priests, and he also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath [p]was made [q]for man, and not man [r]for the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
