The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752





THE HOLY GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST ACCORDING TO ST. MARK

St. Mark, the disciple and interpreter of St. Peter (saith St. Jerome),
according to what he heard from Peter himself, wrote at Rome a brief
Gospel at the request of the Brethren, about ten years after our lord's
Ascension; which when Peter had heard, he approved of it and with his
authority published it to the church to be read. Baronius and others say
that the original was written in Latin: but the more general opinion is
that the Evangelist wrote it in Greek.


Mark Chapter 1

The preaching of John the Baptist. Christ is baptized by him. He calls
his disciples and works many miracles.

1:1. The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

1:2. As it is written in Isaias the prophet: Behold I send my angel
before thy face, who shall prepare the way before thee.

1:3. A voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the
Lord; make straight his paths.

1:4. John was in the desert, baptizing and preaching the baptism of
penance, unto remission of sins.

1:5. And there went out to him all the country of Judea and all they of
Jerusalem and were baptized by him in the river of Jordan, confessing
their sins.

1:6. And John was clothed camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his
loins: and he ate locusts and wild honey.

1:7. And he preached, saying: There cometh after me one mightier than I,
the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.

1:8. I have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the
Holy Ghost.

1:9. And it came to pass, in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of
Galilee and was baptized by John in Jordan.

1:10. And forthwith coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens open
and the Spirit as a dove descending and remaining on him.

1:11. And there came a voice from heaven: Thou art my beloved Son; in
thee I am well pleased.

1:12. And immediately the Spirit drove him out into the desert.

1:13. And he was in the desert forty days and forty nights, and was
tempted by Satan. And he was with beasts: and the angels ministered to
him.

1:14. And after that John was delivered up, Jesus came in Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

1:15. And saying: The time is accomplished and the kingdom of God is at
hand. Repent and believe the gospel:

1:16. And passing by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his
brother, casting nets into the sea for they were fishermen.

1:17. And Jesus said to them: Come after me; and I will make you to
become fishers of men.

1:18. And immediately leaving their nets, they followed him.

1:19. And going on from thence a little farther, he saw James the son of
Zebedee and John his brother, who also were mending their nets in the
ship:
