Marcos 1:1-45

Ang Pangangaral ni Juan na Tagapagbautismo

(Mat. 3:1-12; Luc. 3:1-18; Juan 1:19-28)

1-2Ito ang Magandang Balita tungkol kay Jesu-Cristo na Anak ng Dios. Nagsimula ito nang matupad ang isinulat ni Propeta Isaias tungkol sa sinabi ng Dios sa kanyang Anak: “Ipapadala ko ang aking mensahero. Mauuna siya sa iyo upang ihanda ang dadaanan mo.1:1-2 Mal. 3:1. 3Maririnig ang kanyang sigaw sa ilang, na nagsasabi,

‘Ihanda ninyo ang daan para sa Panginoon,

tuwirin ninyo ang mga landas na kanyang dadaanan.’ ”1:3 Isa. 40:3.

4-5At natupad ito noong dumating si Juan na tagapagbautismo roon sa ilang. Napakaraming tao ang pumunta sa kanya galing sa Jerusalem at sa buong lalawigan ng Judea. Nangaral si Juan sa mga tao, “Magsisi kayo at talikdan ang inyong mga kasalanan; magpabautismo kayo para sa kapatawaran ng inyong mga kasalanan.” Ipinahayag nila ang kanilang mga kasalanan at binautismuhan sila ni Juan sa Ilog ng Jordan. 6Ang damit ni Juan ay gawa sa balahibo ng kamelyo at ang sinturon niyaʼy gawa sa balat ng hayop. Ang kanyang kinakain ay balang at pulot pukyutan. 7Ito ang ipinapahayag niya, “May isang darating na kasunod ko, mas makapangyarihan siya kaysa sa akin at hindi man lang ako karapat-dapat na maging alipin niya.1:7 Hindi man lang ako karapat-dapat na maging alipin niya: sa literal, Hindi man lang ako karapat-dapat yumuko para magkalag ng tali ng kanyang sandalyas. 8Binabautismuhan ko kayo sa tubig, ngunit babautismuhan niya kayo sa Banal na Espiritu.”

Ang Pagbautismo at Pagtukso kay Jesus

(Mat. 3:13–4:11; Luc. 3:21-22; 4:1-13)

9Sa panahong iyon, dumating si Jesus mula sa Nazaret na sakop ng Galilea at nagpabautismo kay Juan sa Ilog ng Jordan. 10Pagkaahon ni Jesus sa tubig, nakita niyang bumukas ang langit at bumaba sa kanya ang Banal na Espiritu tulad ng isang kalapati. 11At may boses na narinig mula sa langit na nagsabi, “Ikaw ang minamahal kong Anak, na lubos kong kinalulugdan.”

12At noon din ay pinapunta siya ng Banal na Espiritu sa ilang. 13Nanatili siya roon ng 40 araw na tinutukso ni Satanas. May mababangis na hayop doon, pero tinulungan si Jesus ng mga anghel.

Tinawag ni Jesus ang Apat na Mangingisda

(Mat. 4:12-22; Luc. 4:14-15; 5:1-11)

14Nang mabilanggo si Juan na tagapagbautismo, pumunta si Jesus sa Galilea at ipinangaral doon ang Magandang Balita na mula sa Dios. 15Sinabi niya, “Dumating na ang takdang panahon! Malapit na1:15 Malapit na: o, Dumating na. ang paghahari ng Dios. Pagsisihan na ninyo ang inyong mga kasalanan at maniwala kayo sa Magandang Balita!”

16Isang araw, habang naglalakad si Jesus sa tabi ng Lawa ng Galilea, nakita niya ang magkapatid na mangingisdang sina Simon at Andres. Naghahagis sila ng lambat. 17Sinabi ni Jesus sa kanila, “Sumunod kayo sa akin at gagawin ko kayong mangingisda ng mga tao.”1:17 mangingisda ng mga tao: Ang ibig sabihin, tagahikayat ng mga tao na lumapit sa Dios. 18Iniwan nila agad ang kanilang mga lambat at sumunod sa kanya.

19Nagpatuloy si Jesus sa paglalakad, at sa di-kalayuan ay nakita naman niya ang dalawang anak ni Zebedee na sina Santiago at Juan na nag-aayos ng kanilang lambat sa bangka nila. 20Agad silang tinawag ni Jesus. Iniwan nila sa bangka ang ama nilang si Zebedee at ang mga tauhan nila, at sumunod kay Jesus.

Ang Taong Sinaniban ng Masamang Espiritu

(Luc. 4:31-37)

21Pumunta sina Jesus sa Capernaum. Nang dumating ang Araw ng Pamamahinga, pumunta sila sa sambahan ng mga Judio at doon ay nangaral si Jesus. 22Namangha ang mga tao sa mga aral niya, dahil nangangaral siya nang may awtoridad, hindi tulad ng mga tagapagturo ng Kautusan.

23May isang tao roon na sinasaniban ng masamang espiritu ang biglang nagsisigaw: 24“Ano ang pakialam mo sa amin, Jesus na taga-Nazaret? Naparito ka ba upang puksain kami? Kilala kita. Ikaw ang Banal na sugo ng Dios!” 25Pero sinaway ni Jesus ang masamang espiritu, “Tumahimik ka at lumabas sa kanya!” 26Pinangisay ng masamang espiritu ang tao, at sumigaw siya habang lumalabas. 27Namangha ang lahat ng naroon, at sinabi nila sa isaʼt isa, “Ano ito? Isang bagong aral na may kapangyarihan! Pati ang masasamang espiritu ay nauutusan niya at sumusunod sila!” 28At mabilis na kumalat ang balita tungkol kay Jesus sa buong Galilea.

Maraming Pinagaling si Jesus

(Mat. 8:14-17; Luc. 4:38-41)

29Mula sa sambahan ng mga Judio, pumunta sina Jesus sa bahay nina Simon at Andres. Kasama pa rin nila sina Santiago at Juan. 30Nakahiga noon ang biyenang babae ni Simon dahil nilalagnat. Sinabi agad nila ito kay Jesus. 31Nilapitan ni Jesus ang may sakit, hinawakan ang kamay nito at ibinangon. Biglang nawala ang lagnat ng babae, at pinagsilbihan niya sina Jesus.

32Pagkalubog ng araw, dinala ng mga tao kay Jesus ang lahat ng may sakit at ang mga sinasaniban ng masamang espiritu. 33At ang lahat ng tao sa bayang iyon ay nagkatipon-tipon sa harapan ng pinto ng bahay. 34Maraming may sakit ang pinagaling ni Jesus, anuman ang kanilang karamdaman, at pinalayas din niya ang maraming masamang espiritu. Hindi niya pinayagang magsalita ang masasamang espiritu, dahil alam nila kung sino siya.

Nangaral si Jesus sa Galilea

(Luc. 4:42-44)

35Kinabukasan ng madaling-araw, bumangon si Jesus at pumunta sa ilang upang manalangin. 36Hinanap siya nina Simon at ng kanyang mga kasama. 37Nang matagpuan nila si Jesus, sinabi nila, “Hinahanap po kayo ng lahat.” 38Pero sinabi ni Jesus sa kanila, “Pumunta naman tayo sa mga kalapit-bayan, para makapangaral din ako roon, dahil ito ang dahilan kung bakit ako naparito sa mundo.” 39Kaya nilibot ni Jesus ang buong Galilea at nangaral siya sa mga sambahan ng mga Judio at nagpalayas ng masasamang espiritu sa mga taong sinaniban ng mga ito.

Pinagaling ni Jesus ang Isang Lalaking May Malubhang Sakit sa Balat

(Mat. 8:1-4; Luc. 5:12-16)

40Lumapit kay Jesus ang isang lalaking may malubhang sakit sa balat.1:40 malubhang sakit sa balat: Sa ibang salin ng Biblia, ketong. Ang Griegong salita nito ay ginamit sa ibaʼt ibang klase ng sakit sa balat na itinuturing na marumi ayon sa Lev. 13. Lumuhod ito sa harap niya at nagmakaawang pagalingin siya. Sinabi niya, “Kung gusto nʼyo po, mapapagaling nʼyo ako upang maituring akong malinis.”1:40 upang maituring akong malinis: Kapag gumaling na ang taong may malubhang sakit sa balat, kinakailangan niyang magpasuri sa pari at sumailalim sa isang seremonya upang maituring na malinis. 41Naawa si Jesus sa kanya. Kaya hinawakan siya ni Jesus at sinabi, “Gusto ko. Luminis ka!” 42Gumaling agad ang sakit niya, at siya ay luminis. 43-44Pinaalis siya agad ni Jesus at binilinan, “Huwag mo itong ipagsasabi kahit kanino. Sa halip, pumunta ka sa pari at magpasuri. Pagkatapos, maghandog ka ayon sa iniutos ni Moises bilang patunay na malinis ka na.” 45Pero pagkaalis niya, ipinamalita niya ang nangyari sa kanya. Kaya kumalat ang balitang ito hanggang sa hindi na lantarang makapasok si Jesus sa mga bayan dahil pinagkakaguluhan siya ng mga tao. Kaya roon na lang siya nanatili sa mga ilang. Pero pumupunta pa rin doon ang mga tao mula sa ibaʼt ibang lugar.

New International Reader's Version

Mark 1:1-45

John the Baptist Prepares the Way

1This is the beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. 2Long ago Isaiah the prophet wrote,

“I will send my messenger ahead of you.

He will prepare your way.” (Malachi 3:1)

3“A messenger is calling out in the desert,

‘Prepare the way for the Lord.

Make straight paths for him.’ ” (Isaiah 40:3)

4And so John the Baptist appeared in the desert. He preached that people should be baptized and turn away from their sins. Then God would forgive them. 5All the people from the countryside of Judea went out to him. All the people from Jerusalem went too. When they admitted they had sinned, John baptized them in the Jordan River. 6John wore clothes made out of camel’s hair. He had a leather belt around his waist. And he ate locusts and wild honey. 7Here is what John was preaching. “After me, there is someone coming who is more powerful than I am. I’m not good enough to bend down and untie his sandals. 8I baptize you with water. But he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus Is Baptized and Tempted

9At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee. John baptized Jesus in the Jordan River. 10Jesus was coming up out of the water. Just then he saw heaven being torn open. Jesus saw the Holy Spirit coming down on him like a dove. 11A voice spoke to him from heaven. It said, “You are my Son, and I love you. I am very pleased with you.”

12At once the Holy Spirit sent Jesus out into the desert. 13He was in the desert 40 days. There Satan tempted him. The wild animals didn’t harm Jesus. Angels took care of him.

Jesus Preaches the Good News

14After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee. He preached the good news of God. 15“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Turn away from your sins and believe the good news!”

Jesus Chooses His First Disciples

16One day Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee. There he saw Simon and his brother Andrew. They were throwing a net into the lake. They were fishermen. 17“Come and follow me,” Jesus said. “I will send you out to fish for people.” 18At once they left their nets and followed him.

19Then Jesus walked a little farther. As he did, he saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat preparing their nets. 20Right away he called out to them. They left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men. Then they followed Jesus.

Jesus Drives Out an Evil Spirit

21Jesus and those with him went to Capernaum. When the Sabbath day came, he went into the synagogue. There he began to teach. 22The people were amazed at his teaching. That’s because he taught them like one who had authority. He did not talk like the teachers of the law. 23Just then a man in their synagogue cried out. He was controlled by an evil spirit. He said, 24“What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are. You are the Holy One of God!”

25“Be quiet!” said Jesus firmly. “Come out of him!” 26The evil spirit shook the man wildly. Then it came out of him with a scream.

27All the people were amazed. So they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching! And with so much authority! He even gives orders to evil spirits, and they obey him.” 28News about Jesus spread quickly all over Galilee.

Jesus Heals Many People

29Jesus and those with him left the synagogue. Right away they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. 30Simon’s mother-in-law was lying in bed with a fever. They told Jesus about her right away. 31So he went to her. He took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her. Then she began to serve them.

32That evening after sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who were sick. They also brought all who were controlled by demons. 33All the people in town gathered at the door. 34Jesus healed many of them. They had all kinds of sicknesses. He also drove out many demons. But he would not let the demons speak, because they knew who he was.

Jesus Prays in a Quiet Place

35It was very early in the morning and still dark. Jesus got up and left the house. He went to a place where he could be alone. There he prayed. 36Simon and his friends went to look for Jesus. 37When they found him, they called out, “Everyone is looking for you!”

38Jesus replied, “Let’s go somewhere else. I want to go to the nearby towns. I must preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39So he traveled all around Galilee. He preached in their synagogues. He also drove out demons.

Jesus Heals a Man Who Had a Skin Disease

40A man who had a skin disease came to Jesus. On his knees he begged Jesus. He said, “If you are willing to make me ‘clean,’ you can do it.”

41Jesus became angry. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing to do it,” Jesus said. “Be ‘clean’!” 42Right away the disease left the man, and he was “clean.”

43Jesus sent him away at once. He gave the man a strong warning. 44“Don’t tell this to anyone,” he said. “Go and show yourself to the priest. Offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded. It will be a witness to the priest and the people that you are ‘clean.’ ” 45But the man went out and started talking right away. He spread the news to everyone. So Jesus could no longer enter a town openly. He stayed outside in lonely places. But people still came to him from everywhere.
