Mark 1:1-15

The Preaching of John the Baptist
1
1 This is the good news about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
a 1.1 the Son of God: These words are not in some manuscripts.
2 It began just as God had said in the book written by Isaiah the prophet,

“I am sending my messenger
to get the way ready
for you.
3 In the desert
1.3 Is 40.3 (LXX).
someone is shouting,
‘Get the road ready
for the Lord!
Make a straight path
for him.’ ”

4 So John the Baptist showed up in the desert and told everyone, “Turn back to God and be baptized! Then your sins will be forgiven.”
5 From all Judea and Jerusalem crowds of people went to John. They told how sorry they were for their sins, and he baptized them in the Jordan River.
6 John wore clothes made of camel's hair. He had a leather strap around his waist and ate grasshoppers and wild honey.
7 John also told the people, “Someone more powerful is going to come. And I am not good enough even to stoop down and untie his sandals.
b 1.7 untie his sandals: This was the duty of a slave.
8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit!”
The Baptism of Jesus
9 About that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River. 10 As soon as Jesus came out of the water, he saw the sky open and the Holy Spirit coming down to him like a dove. 11 A voice from heaven said, “You are my own dear Son, and I am pleased with you.”
Jesus and Satan
12 Right away God's Spirit made Jesus go into the desert. 13 He stayed there for forty days while Satan tested him. Jesus was with the wild animals, but angels took care of him.
Jesus Begins His Work
14 After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee and told the good news that comes from God.
c 1.14 that comes from God: Or “that is about God.”
15 He said, “The time has come! God's kingdom will soon be here.
d 1.15 will soon be here: Or “is already here.”
Turn back to God and believe the good news!”
