Mark 1

Preaching of John the Baptist

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

As it is written in Isaiah the prophet:

Behold, I send My messenger [a]ahead of You,
Who will prepare Your way;
The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make ready the way of the Lord,
Make His paths straight.’”

John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness [b]preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea was going out to him, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins. John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and [c]his diet was locusts and wild honey. And he was [d]preaching, and saying, “After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals. I baptized you [e]with water; but He will baptize you [f]with the Holy Spirit.”

The Baptism of Jesus

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens [g]opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

12 Immediately the Spirit *impelled Him to go out into the wilderness. 13 And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

14 Now after John had been [h]taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, [i]preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God [j]is at hand; repent and [k]believe in the gospel.”

16 As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” 18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 19 Going on a little farther, He saw [l]James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. 20 Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away [m]to follow Him.

21 They *went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. 22 They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 23 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, “What [n]business do we have with each other, Jesus [o]of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” 26 Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. 27 They were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” 28 Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee.

Crowds Healed

29 And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with [p]James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they *spoke to [q]Jesus about her. 31 And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she [r]waited on them.

32 When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were demon-possessed. 33 And the whole city had gathered at the door. 34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.

35 In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. 36 Simon and his companions searched for Him; 37 they found Him, and *said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” 38 He *said to them, “Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may [s]preach there also; for that is what I came for.” 39 And He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, [t]preaching and casting out the demons.

40 And a leper *came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41 Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and *said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. 43 And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away, 44 and He *said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” 45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the news around, to such an extent that [u]Jesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but [v]stayed out in unpopulated areas; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.

Evanjelium Podľa Marka 1

Ján Krstiteľ

1 Úžasný príbeh o Ježišovi Kristovi, Božom Synovi, sa začína takto:

V knihe, ktorú napísal dávny prorok Izaiáš, oznámil Boh, že pošle svojho Syna na zem, no najprv príde zvláštny posol a pripraví svet na jeho príchod. Tento posol bude žiť na vyprahnutej púšti," oznamoval Izaiáš,

a bude hlásať, že každý musí zmeniť svoj život a pripraviť sa na Pánov príchod."

Týmto poslom bol Ján Krstiteľ. Býval na púšti a nabádal ľudí, aby sa dali pokrstiť, a takto dali najavo, že sa odvracajú od svojich hriechov a túžia, aby im ich Pán Boh odpustil.

Ľudia z Jeruzalema i z celého Judska sa pobrali na judskú púšť, aby ho videli a počuli. Keď vyznali svoje hriechy, Ján ich pokrstil v rieke Jordán.

Nosil odev z ťavej srsti a bol prepásaný koženým opaskom, kobylky a med divých včiel mu boli pokrmom.

Tu je úryvok z jeho kázne:

Čoskoro po mne príde ktosi omnoho väčší ako ja. Nie som hodný ani, aby som sa zohol a rozviazal mu remienok na obuvi.

Ja vás krstím vodou, ale on vás bude krstiť Duchom Svätým."

Ján pokrstí Ježiša v Jordáne

Potom istého dňa prišiel Ježiš do Nazareta v Galilei a Ján ho pokrstil v Jordáne.

10 Vo chvíli, keď vystupoval z vody na breh, videl, ako sa otvorilo nebo a na hlavu sa mu zniesol Svätý Duch v podobe holubice.

11 Tu zaznel z neba hlas: Ty si môj milovaný Syn, moja radosť."

Ježiš vystavený satanovým pokušeniam

12 Hneď nato vnukol Svätý Duch Ježišovi, aby odišiel na púšť do samoty.

13 Strávil tam štyridsať dní sám medzi divou zverou, vystavený satanovým pokušeniam. No potom prišli anjeli a starali sa oňho.

Začiatok Ježišovej činnosti

14 Neskôr, keď kráľ Herodes uväznil Jána, prišiel Ježiš do Galiley a zvestoval tam Božie radostné posolstvo:

15 Nadišiel už čas. Božie kráľovstvo je blízko. Odvráťte sa od svojich hriechov a uverte tejto radostnej správe!"

Povolanie učeníkov

16 V istý deň, keď Ježiš šiel po brehu Galilejského mora, zbadal Šimona a jeho brata Andreja, ako hádžu do vody siete, lebo sa živili rybárstvom.

17 Ježiš na nich zavolal: Poďte za mnou! Ja vás urobím rybármi ľudí!"

18 Ihneď nechali všetko tak a odišli s ním.

19 Kúsok ďalej videl pri brehu Zebedejových synov Jakuba a Jána, ako v člne opravujú potrhané siete.

20 Aj ich zavolal a oni ihneď nechali svojho otca Zebedeja v člne s najatými pomocníkmi a pobrali sa za ním.

Ježiš dokazuje svoju moc

21 Ježiš i jeho družina prišli do mesta Kafarnauma a hneď v prvú sobotu vošli do židovskej modlitebne -- synagógy, kde Ježiš začal kázať.

22 Poslucháči žasli, lebo hovoril neobyčajne presvedčivo. Bolo to čosi celkom iné, ako počúvali doposiaľ od učiteľov Zákona.

23 Bol tam istý muž posadnutý démonom a začal vykrikovať:

24 Ježiš z Nazareta, prečo nás trápiš? Prišiel si nás zničiť? Viem, kto si: ten Svätý Boží Syn!"

25 Ježiš rázne pohrozil démonovi, aby stíchol a vyšiel z muža.

26 Vtom démon zreval, divoko tým mužom zalomcoval a opustil ho.

27 Poslucháčov sa zmocnil úžas a začali sa dohadovať, čo sa stalo. Čo to je? Nové učenie?" spytovali sa vzrušene. Ako to, že aj zlí duchovia poslúchajú jeho rozkazy?"

28 Správa o tom, čo vykonal, sa rýchlo rozšírila po celom území Galiley.

Ježiš uzdravuje chorých

29 Keď potom vyšiel zo synagógy, pobral sa s učeníkmi do Šimonovho a Andrejovho domu.

30 Tu našli Šimonovu svokru ležať chorú v posteli s vysokou horúčkou. Povedali Ježišovi, čo ju trápi.

31 Pristúpil k jej lôžku, chytil ju za ruku a pomohol jej sadnúť si. Horúčka jej ihneď klesla, vstala a pripravila im obed.

32 Večer, keď zapadlo slnko, bolo nádvorie plné chorých a posadnutých démonmi, ktorých k nemu priviedli, aby ich uzdravil,

33 a pred domom sa zhromaždil a pozoroval ho obrovský zástup ľudí z celého mesta.

34 V ten večer uzdravil veľký počet chorých a mnohých démonov vyhnal z ich obetí. Ale nedovolil im hovoriť, lebo vedeli, že je Mesiáš -- Svätý Boží Syn.

35 Na druhé ráno vstal Ježiš ešte pred svitaním a odišiel na osamelé miesto, kde sa mohol v pokoji modliť.

36 O trochu neskôr ho Šimon aj ostatní učeníci šli hľadať.

37 Keď ho našli, vraveli mu: Každý sa spytuje len na teba!"

38 On im odpovedal: Musím ísť do okolitých dedín a oznámiť ľuďom moje posolstvo, veď preto som prišiel."

39 A potom kázal v synagógach po celej Galilei a vyháňal démonov.

Uzdravenie malomocného

40 Raz k nemu pristúpil človek postihnutý malomocenstvom, hodil sa pred ním na kolená a úpenlivo ho prosil: Pane, ja viem, že ma môžeš uzdraviť, ak budeš chcieť!"

41 Ježišovi ho prišlo ľúto, natiahol ruku, dotkol sa ho a povedal: Chcem, aby si bol čistý!"

42 Len čo vyslovil tieto slová, nezostalo po malomocenstve ani stopy.

43 Ale Ježiš mu prísne nariadil: Choď a ukáž sa židovskému kňazovi.

44 No cestou sa nikde nezastavuj a s nikým sa nedávaj do reči. Zároveň vezmi so sebou obetný dar, ako to nariadil Mojžiš uzdraveným z malomocenstva, aby všetci mali dôkaz, že si naozaj zdravý."

45 Ale uzdravený nevydržal mlčať a všetkým radostne oznamoval, čo sa s ním stalo. A tak sa Ježiš nemohol verejne dostať do nijakého mesta, lebo zástup by ho bol zadlávil. Zdržiaval sa preto na opustených miestach, ale aj ta sa za ním zbiehali zástupy ľudí zo všetkých strán.
