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.

Marcos 1

João Batista Prepara o Caminho

1Princípio do evangelho de Jesus Cristo, o Filho de Deus[a].

Conforme está escrito no profeta Isaías:

“Enviarei à tua frente
    o meu mensageiro;
ele preparará
    o teu caminho”[b]
“voz do que clama no deserto:
    ‘Preparem[c] o caminho
    para o Senhor,
façam veredas retas
    para ele’”[d].

Assim surgiu João, batizando no deserto e pregando um batismo de arrependimento para o perdão dos pecados. A ele vinha toda a região da Judéia e todo o povo de Jerusalém. Confessando os seus pecados, eram batizados por ele no rio Jordão. João vestia roupas feitas de pêlos de camelo, usava um cinto de couro e comia gafanhotos e mel silvestre. E esta era a sua mensagem: “Depois de mim vem alguém mais poderoso do que eu, tanto que não sou digno nem de curvar-me e desamarrar as correias das suas sandálias. Eu os batizo com[e] água, mas ele os batizará com o Espírito Santo”.

O Batismo e a Tentação de Jesus

Naquela ocasião Jesus veio de Nazaré da Galiléia e foi batizado por João no Jordão. 10 Assim que saiu da água, Jesus viu o céu se abrindo, e o Espírito descendo como pomba sobre ele. 11 Então veio dos céus uma voz: “Tu és o meu Filho amado; em ti me agrado”.

12 Logo após, o Espírito o impeliu para o deserto. 13 Ali esteve quarenta dias, sendo tentado por Satanás. Estava com os animais selvagens, e os anjos o serviam.

Jesus Chama os Primeiros Discípulos

14 Depois que João foi preso, Jesus foi para a Galiléia, proclamando as boas novas de Deus. 15 “O tempo é chegado”, dizia ele. “O Reino de Deus está próximo. Arrependam-se e creiam nas boas novas!”

16 Andando à beira do mar da Galiléia, Jesus viu Simão e seu irmão André lançando redes ao mar, pois eram pescadores. 17 E disse Jesus: “Sigam-me, e eu os farei pescadores de homens”. 18 No mesmo instante eles deixaram as suas redes e o seguiram.

19 Indo um pouco mais adiante, viu num barco Tiago, filho de Zebedeu, e João, seu irmão, preparando as suas redes. 20 Logo os chamou, e eles o seguiram, deixando seu pai, Zebedeu, com os empregados no barco.

Jesus Expulsa um Espírito Imundo

21 Eles foram para Cafarnaum e, logo que chegou o sábado, Jesus entrou na sinagoga e começou a ensinar. 22 Todos ficavam maravilhados com o seu ensino, porque lhes ensinava como alguém que tem autoridade e não como os mestres da lei. 23 Justo naquele momento, na sinagoga, um homem possesso de um espírito imundo[f] gritou: 24 “O que queres conosco, Jesus de Nazaré? Vieste para nos destruir? Sei quem tu és: o Santo de Deus!”

25 “Cale-se e saia dele!”, repreendeu-o Jesus. 26 O espírito imundo sacudiu o homem violentamente e saiu dele gritando.

27 Todos ficaram tão admirados que perguntavam uns aos outros: “O que é isto? Um novo ensino — e com autoridade! Até aos espíritos imundos ele dá ordens, e eles lhe obedecem!” 28 As notícias a seu respeito se espalharam rapidamente por toda a região da Galiléia.

O Poder de Jesus sobre os Demônios e as Doenças

29 Logo que saíram da sinagoga, foram com Tiago e João à casa de Simão e André. 30 A sogra de Simão estava de cama, com febre, e falaram a respeito dela a Jesus. 31 Então ele se aproximou dela, tomou-a pela mão e ajudou-a a levantar-se. A febre a deixou, e ela começou a servi-los.

32 Ao anoitecer, depois do pôr-do-sol, o povo levou a Jesus todos os doentes e os endemoninhados. 33 Toda a cidade se reuniu à porta da casa, 34 e Jesus curou muitos que sofriam de várias doenças. Também expulsou muitos demônios; não permitia, porém, que estes falassem, porque sabiam quem ele era.

Jesus Ora num Lugar Deserto

35 De madrugada, quando ainda estava escuro, Jesus levantou-se, saiu de casa e foi para um lugar deserto, onde ficou orando. 36 Simão e seus companheiros foram procurá-lo 37 e, ao encontrá-lo, disseram: “Todos estão te procurando!”

38 Jesus respondeu: “Vamos para outro lugar, para os povoados vizinhos, para que também lá eu pregue. Foi para isso que eu vim”. 39 Então ele percorreu toda a Galiléia, pregando nas sinagogas e expulsando os demônios.

A Cura de um Leproso

40 Um leproso[g] aproximou-se dele e suplicou-lhe de joelhos: “Se quiseres, podes purificar-me!”

41 Cheio de compaixão, Jesus estendeu a mão, tocou nele e disse: “Quero. Seja purificado!” 42 Imediatamente a lepra o deixou, e ele foi purificado.

43 Em seguida Jesus o despediu, com uma severa advertência: 44 “Olhe, não conte isso a ninguém. Mas vá mostrar-se ao sacerdote e ofereça pela sua purificação os sacrifícios que Moisés ordenou, para que sirva de testemunho”. 45 Ele, porém, saiu e começou a tornar público o fato, espalhando a notícia. Por isso Jesus não podia mais entrar publicamente em nenhuma cidade, mas ficava fora, em lugares solitários. Todavia, assim mesmo vinha a ele gente de todas as partes.
