Then Yeshua was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
When he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry afterward.
The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
But he answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'"
Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will give his angels charge concerning you.' and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, So that you don't dash your foot against a stone.'"
Yeshua said to him, "Again, it is written, 'You shall not test the Lord, your God.'"
Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory.
He said to him, "I will give you all of these things, if you will fall down and worship me."
Then Yeshua said to him, "Get behind me, Hasatan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'"
Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to him.
Now when Yeshua heard that Yochanan was delivered up, he withdrew into the Galil.
Leaving Natzeret, he came and lived in Kafar-Nachum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zevulun and Naftali,
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Yesha`yahu the prophet, saying,
"The land of Zevulun and the land of Naftali, Toward the sea, beyond the Yarden, Galil of the Goyim,
The people who sat in darkness saw a great light, To those who sat in the region and shadow of death, To them light has dawned."
From that time, Yeshua began to preach, and to say, "Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand."
Walking by the sea of the Galil, he saw two brothers: Shim`on, who is called Kefa, and Andrai, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
He said to them, "Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers for men."
They immediately left their nets and followed him.
Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, Ya`akov the son of Zavdai, and Yochanan his brother, in the boat with Zavdai their father, mending their nets. He called them.
They immediately left the boat and their father, and followed him.
Yeshua went about in all Galil, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Good News of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people.
The report about him went forth into all Aram. They brought to him all who were sick, afflicted with various diseases and torments, possessed with demons, epileptics, and paralytics; and he healed them.
Great multitudes from the Galil, Decapolis, Yerushalayim, Yehudah and from beyond the Yarden followed him.
