1 1 [The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ.]

Even as it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
Lo, I send my messenger before thy face,

Who shall prepare thy way!
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness :

Make ready the way of the Lord,

Make level his paths!» 4 John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness ? preaching a baptism of 5 repentance for the remission of sins. And all the country of Judaea

began to go out to him, with all the people of Jerusalem ; and they were 6 baptized by him in the river Jordan, as they confessed their sins. And

John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a leather girdle round his 7 loins, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached saying,

“After me comes he who is mightier than I,

The thong of whose sandals I am not fit to stoop down and untie. 8 I have baptized you with water,

But he shall baptize you with the holy Spirit." 9 And it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of 10 Galilee, and had himself baptized in the Jordan by John. And im

mediately on rising up from the water he saw the skies part asunder and 11 the Spirit like a dove come down upon him ; and a voice out of the skies said,

“Thou art my Son, the beloved,

In thee I delight.” 12 Then immediately the Spirit thrusts him out into the wilderness ; 13 and he was in the wilderness for forty days, tempted by Satan.

And he was with the wild beasts. And the angels ministered to him.

14 Now after John had been delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee 15 preaching the glad tidings of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and

God's reign is near Repent and believe in the glad tidings." 16 And in passing along beside the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew 17 the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea ; for they were fishers. And

Jesus said to them, “Come after me and I will make you fishers of 18, 19 men." Then immediately they left the nets and followed him. And

going a little further on he saw James the son of Zebedee with his 20 brother John, who were also in their boat mending nets. And immedi

ately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee with the hired

servants in the boat, and went away after him. 21 And they go into Kapharnahum. And immediately on the sabbath- . 22 day he went into the synagogue and began to teach. And they were

astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who exerted 23 authority, and not like the scribes. And immediately there was in their

24 synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and it shrieked, “What have we

to do with thee, Jesus of Nazaret? Hast thou come to destroy us? I 25 know who thou art, the holy One of God.” And Jesus rebuked it, 26 “Silence! leave him!” So after convulsing him and crying with a 27 loud voice, the unclean spirit left him. And in amazement they all

discussed it one with another, and said, “What is this?” “New teaching,

with authority !” “He commands even the unclean spirits !” “Yes, 28 and they obey him!” And the report of him went out immediately in 29 all directions into the whole of the surrounding country of Galilee. And

immediately on leaving the synagogue, they went into the house of 30 Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now the mother of Simon's 31 wife was lying in a fever, and immediately they tell him about her. And

he came near, and taking her hand raised her ; and the fever left her, and 32 she ministered to them.

Now in the evening, when the sun had set, they brought him all who were ill and those who were possessed by 33, 34 daemons. And the whole city was gathered at the door. And he healed

many who were ill with manifold diseases, and cast out many daemons; 35 nor would he let the daemons speak, because they knew him.

And very early, long before day, he rose, went away out to a desert place, and 36, 37 there began to pray. And Simon with his companions pursued him and 38 found him; and they say to him, “Everyone is seeking thee!” But he

says to them, “Let us go elsewhere, to the adjoining country-towns, that 39 I may preach there also ; for that is why I came out." Then he went and

preached in their synagogues through the whole of Galilee, and cast out

the daemons. 40 And a leper comes to him, beseeching him and kneeling down, saying 41 to him, “If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” And in compassion

he stretched out his hand and touched him ; and he says to him, “I will : 42 be clean. Then immediately the leprosy left him, and he became clean. 43, 44 And he sternly charged him and immediately sent him off, saying to

him, “See thou tell no one anything; but go, show thyself to the priest,

and offer for thy cleansing what Moses commanded—as a proof to men.” 45 But he went away and began to proclaim it widely and to spread the

affair abroad. The result was that Jesus could no longer enter a city openly. He stayed outside in desert places; and people came to him

from every quarter. 21 And when he entered Kapharnahum again after some days, it was

2 reported that he was at home. And many gathered together, so that

there was no longer any room for them even at the door; and he spoke 3 the word to them. Then people came bringing to him a paralytic man, 4 carried by four men. And as they were unable to bring him to Jesus on account of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was, and after

tearing it up they lower the pallet on which the paralytic man lay. 5 And on seeing their faith, Jesus says to the paralytic man, “My son, 6 thy sins are forgiven.” Now some of the scribes sat there and 7 argued in their hearts, “Why does this fellow speak thus? He is 8 blaspheming. Who can forgive sins except God alone?” And as Jesus

immediately perceived in his spirit that they were thus arguing to them9 selves, he says to them, “Why argue thus in your hearts? Which is

easier, to say to the paralytic man, Thy sins are forgiven,' or to say, 10 ‘Rise and take up thy pallet and walk'? But, to let you know that the

Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins"-he says to the 11 paralytic man—“I say to thee, 'Rise, take up thy pallet and go home.'” 12 Then he rose, took up the pallet immediately, and went out in presence

of them all. So all were amazed, and magnified God saying, “We have

never seen anything like this ! ” 13 And he went out again by the seaside; and all the crowd came to 14 him, and he taught them. And as he passed along he saw Levi the son

of Alphaeus sitting at the tax-office ; and he says to him, “Follow me." 15 And he rose and followed him. And it came to pass that he was reclin

ing at meat in his house, and many tax-gatherers and sinners were

reclining along with Jesus and his disciples (for there were many of them, 16 and they followed him). And on seeing that he ate with the sinners and

tax-gatherers, the scribes of the Pharisees said to his disciples, “Does he 17 eat 1 with the tax-gatherers and sinners?" And when Jesus heard it he says to them,

“ The strong need not a physician, but those who are ill :

I came not to call upright men but sinners.” 18 And the disciples of John and the Pharisees were observing a fast.

And people come and say to him, “Why is it that the disciples of John

and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, while thy disciples fast not ?" 19 And Jesus said to them, “Can the sons of the bride-chamber fast while the bridegroom is

with them?
So long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
But days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away

from them :
And then will they fast on that day.
No man stitches a piece of undressed cloth on an old cloak :
Otherwise, the patch parts from it, the new from the old,

And a worse tear is made.
And no man pours fresh wine into old wine-skins :
Otherwise, the wine will burst the wine-skins,

And they are lost, wine and wine-skins together." ? 23 And it came to pass that he was making his way upon the sabbath

day through the cornfields; and as his disciples journeyed, they began to 24 pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said to him, “Look! why 25 are they doing what is wrong upon the sabbath-day?And he says to

them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need, and 26 he and his companions were hungry? How he went into the house of

God, when Abiathar was high-priest, and ate the show-bread, which no one

except the priests has any right to eat; and gave it also to his com27 panions?" And he said to them,

“The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath : 28

So the Son of man is lord even of the sabbath." 31 And he again entered a synagogue ; and a man was there with his

2 hand withered. And they were watching him narrowly to see if he 3 would heal him on the sabbath-day, in order to accuse him. And he says 4 to the man who had the withered hand, “Rise and come forward.” And

he says to them, “Is it right to help or to harm on the sabbath-day? 5 to save life or to kill it?” But they kept silence. Then after looking

round on them with anger, grieved at the hardening of their heart, he

says to the man,“ Stretch out the hand.” And as he stretched it out, his 6 hand was restored. And the Pharisees went out and immediately proceeded

to consult with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him. 7 And Jesus retired to the sea with his disciples. And a great multi

8 tude followed from Galilee, and from Judaea and from Jerusalem and and from Idumaea and from across the Jordan and the neighbourhood of

Tyre and Sidon-a great multitude, on hearing all that he was doing, 9 came to him. And owing to the crowd he told his disciples to have a 10 small boat in attendance upon him, that he might not be crushed ; for

he had healed many, and the result was that all who had plagues were 11 pressing on him to touch him. And whenever the unclean spirits saw

him, they fell down before him and shouted, “Thou art the Son of God ! ” 12 But he repeatedly charged them not to make him known. 13 Then he goes up the mountain, and summons those whom he would ; 14 and they went away to him. And he appointed twelve, whom he also

named apostles"; that they might be with him, and that he might send 15 them out to preach and to possess authority for casting out the daemons. 16 So he appointed the twelve : Simon (he surnamed him also “Peter"), 17 with James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James (he sur18 named them also “Boanerges," that is, “sons of thunder"), and Andrew

and Philip and Bartholomew and Matthew and Thomas, and James the 19 son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus and Simon (“the zealot'), and Judas of

Kerioth (he who betrayed him). 20 Then he comes home; and again the crowd gathers, so that they could 21 not so much as get their food. And when his relatives heard it, they

went out to seize him; for they said, “ He is out of his mind." 22 And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, “He has

Beelzebub," and, “He is casting out the daemons with the help of the ruler 23 of the daemons.” So summoning them he said to them in parables,

“How can Satan cast out Satan?
And if a realm be divided against itself,

That realm cannot stand :
And if a household be divided against itself,

That house will not be able to stand :
And if Satan has risen against himself and is divided,

He cannot stand; it is all over with him. 27 Nay; no one can enter the house of the mighty man and plunder his

goods unless first of all he binds the mighty man; then indeed he will 28 plunder his house. I tell you truly,

All sins shall be forgiven the sons of men,

And all the blasphemies wherewith ever they blaspheme:

But whoever blasphemes against the holy Spirit

Never nas forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin.” 30, 31 (This was because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.")

And his mother and his brothers come, and standing outside they sent to him 32 and called him. And a crowd was seated round him; and they say to him,

“Here are thy mother and thy brothers and thy sisters, seeking thee 33 outside!” And he says to them in reply, “Who are my mother and my 34 brothers ?” Then looking round on them who sat in a circle about him,

he says, “Here are my mother and my brothers ! 35 Whoever obeys the will of God,

That is my brother and sister and mother.” 41 And again he started to teach by the seaside. Then a very large

crowd gathers to him, so that he entered a boat and sat there on the sea, 2 while all the crowd stayed at the edge of the sea upon the land. And he taught them many things in parables ; and in the course of his teaching he said to them :
