Mark 1:1 The beginning of the good
news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
“See, I am sending my messenger ahead
of you, who will prepare your way; 3 the
voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight,’”
4 John the baptiser appeared in the
wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of
repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5
And people from the whole Judean
countryside and all the people of
Jerusalem were going out to him, and
were baptised by him in the river Jordan,
confessing their sins. 6 Now John was
clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather
belt around his waist, and he ate locusts
and wild honey. 7 He proclaimed, “The
one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop
down and untie the thong of his sandals.
8 I have baptised you with water; but he
will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.”
