Mark1:29-34 (NIV)"As soon as they left the synagogue, they went…"

  • 29. As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew.

  • 30. Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her.

  • 31. So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.

  • 32. That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.

  • 33. The whole town gathered at the door,

  • 34. and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.



Mark1:29-34 (MSG)"Directly on leaving the meeting place, they…"

  • 29.Directly on leaving the meeting place, they came to Simon and Andrew's house, accompanied by James and John.

  • 30. Simon's mother-in-law was sick in bed, burning up with fever. They told Jesus.

  • 31. He went to her, took her hand, and raised her up. No sooner had the fever left than she was up fixing dinner for them.

  • 32. That evening, after the sun was down, they brought sick and evil-afflicted people to him,

  • 33. the whole city lined up at his door!

  • 34. He cured their sick bodies and tormented spirits. Because the demons knew his true identity, he didn't let them say a word.



Mark1:40-45 (NIV)"A man with leprosy came to him and begged him…"

  • 40. A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, "If you are willing, you can make me clean."

  • 41. Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"

  • 42. Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.

  • 43. Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:

  • 44. "See that you don't tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."

  • 45. Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.



Mark1:40-45 (MSG)"A leper came to him, begging on his knees, "If…"

  • 40. A leper came to him, begging on his knees, "If you want to, you can cleanse me."

  • 41. Deeply moved, Jesus put out his hand, touched him, and said, "I want to. Be clean."

  • 42. Then and there the leprosy was gone, his skin smooth and healthy.

  • 43. Jesus dismissed him with strict orders:

  • 44. "Say nothing to anyone. Take the offering for cleansing that Moses prescribed and present yourself to the priest. This will validate your healing to the people."

  • 45. But as soon as the man was out of earshot, he told everyone he met what had happened, spreading the news all over town. So Jesus kept to out-of-the-way places, no longer able to move freely in and out of the city. But people found him, and came from all over.



Mark2:1-12 (NIV)"A few days later, when Jesus again entered…"

  • 1. A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.

  • 2. So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.

  • 3. Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them.

  • 4. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on.

  • 5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."

  • 6. Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves,

  • 7. "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?"

  • 8. Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, "Why are you thinking these things?

  • 9. Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'?

  • 10. But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralytic,

  • 11. "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."

  • 12. He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"



Mark2:1-12 (MSG)"After a few days, Jesus returned to Capernaum,…"

  • 1. After a few days, Jesus returned to Capernaum, and word got around that he was back home.

  • 2. A crowd gathered, jamming the entrance so no one could get in or out. He was teaching the Word.

  • 3. They brought a paraplegic to him, carried by four men.

  • 4. When they weren't able to get in because of the crowd, they removed part of the roof and lowered the paraplegic on his stretcher.

  • 5. Impressed by their bold belief, Jesus said to the paraplegic, "Son, I forgive your sins."

  • 6. Some religion scholars sitting there started whispering among themselves,

  • 7. "He can't talk that way! That's blasphemy! God and only God can forgive sins."

  • 8. Jesus knew right away what they were thinking, and said, "Why are you so skeptical?

  • 9. Which is simpler: to say to the paraplegic, 'I forgive your sins,' or say, 'Get up, take your stretcher, and start walking'?

  • 10. Well, just so it's clear that I'm the Son of Man and authorized to do either, or both . . ." (he looked now at the paraplegic),

  • 11. "Get up. Pick up your stretcher and go home."

  • 12. And the man did it - got up, grabbed his stretcher, and walked out, with everyone there watching him. They rubbed their eyes, incredulous - and then praised God, saying, "We've never seen anything like this!"

  • 5. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.

  • 3. He said to the man with the crippled hand, "Stand here where we can see you."

  • 4. Then he spoke to the people: "What kind of action suits the Sabbath best? Doing good or doing evil? Helping people or leaving them helpless?" No one said a word.

  • 5. He looked them in the eye, one after another, angry now, furious at their hard-nosed religion. He said to the man, "Hold out your hand." He held it out - it was as good as new!

  • 6. The Pharisees got out as fast as they could, sputtering about how they would join forces with Herod's followers and ruin him.

  • 28. because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."

  • 29. Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

  • 30. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
