Preaching of John the Baptist

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, 1the Son of God. 2 2As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: "3BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER aAHEAD OF YOU, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY; 3 4THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, 'MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.' " 4 John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness b5preaching a baptism of repentance for the 6forgiveness of sins. 5 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. 6 John was clothed with camel's hair and wore 7a leather belt around his waist, and chis diet was locusts and wild honey. 7 And he was dpreaching, 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. 8 "I baptized you ewith water; but He will baptize you fwith the Holy Spirit."

The Baptism of Jesus

9 8In those days Jesus 9came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens gopening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: "10You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased." 12 11Immediately the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the wilderness. 13 And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by 12Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

14 13Now after John had been htaken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, i14preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, "15The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God jis at hand; 16repent and kbelieve in the gospel." 16 17As 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.
