The Temptation of Jesus
(Mark 1:12–13; Luke 4:1–13)

1Then was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil. 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungry. 3And the tempter came to him and said: If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread. 4But he answered and said: It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

5Then the devil took him into the holy city, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple,

6and 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 in their hands shall they take you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.

7Jesus said to him: It is again written, You shall not put the Lord your God to the proof.

8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, 9and said to him: All these things will I give you, if you will fall down and worship me. 10Then Jesus said to him: Get behind me, Satan, for it is written: You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. 11Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to him.

Jesus Begins His Ministry
(Mark 1:14–15; Luke 4:14–15)

12Now when Jesus heard that John was delivered up; he withdrew into Galilee; 13and, leaving Nazareth, he went and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea, in the borders of Zebulon and Naphtali, 14that the word might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:

15The land of Zebulon, and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

16the people that sat in darkness saw great light; and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has risen.

17From that time Jesus began to preach and to say: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The First Disciples
(Mark 1:16–20; Luke 5:1–11; John 1:35–42)

18And as he was walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, throwing a net into the sea, for they were fishers.

19And he said to them: Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20And they immediately left their nets and followed him. 21And going on thence, he saw other two brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. 22And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

Jesus Heals the Multitudes
(Mark 3:7–12; Luke 6:17–19)

23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease, and every kind of sickness among the people.

24And his fame went abroad into all Syria. And they brought to him all that were sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, and those who were possessed with demons, and lunatics, and paralytics; and he cured them. 25And many multitudes followed him from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.
