And he dyd eate locustes and wilde hony, 7 and preached sayinge. He that is stronger then I, commeth after me, whose sho latchet I am not worthy to stoupe downe, and vnlose, 8 I haue baptysed you wyth water: but he shall baptyse you with the holy gost. 9 And it came to passe in those dayes, that Iesus cam from Nazareth, of Galile: and was baptysed of Iohn in Iordan: 10 And assone as he was come vp out of the water: he sawe heauen open, & the sprete descendynge vpon him lyke adoue: 11 And ther came a voyce from heauen. Thou art my deare sonne in whom I delyte. 12 And immediatly sprete droue him into wildernes: 13 and he was there in the wyldernes .xl. dayes, and was tempted of Satan, & was with wilde beastes. And the angels minystred vnto hym. 14 After that Iohn was taken Iesus came into Galile preachinge the Gospell, of the kyngdom of God, 15 & sayinge. the tyme is come, & the kyngdom of God is at hand repent, and beleue the Gospell. 16 As he walked by the see of Galile, he sawe Simon & Andrew his brother, castynge nettes into the see, for they were fisshers. 17 And Iesus sayde vnto them: folowe me, & I will make you to become fysshers of men. 18 And strayght waye, they forsoke their nettes, and folowed him. 19 And when he had gone a lytell further thence, he sawe Iames the sonne of Zebede, and Iohn his brother, which also were in the shyppe, mendynge their nettes. 20 And anone he called them. And they leeft their father Zebede in the shyp wyth the hyred seruauntes, and folowed hym. 21 And they came into Capernaum: and streyght waye on the Saboth dayes, he entred into the synagoge, & taught. 22 And they were astonnyed at hys learnynge. For he taught them as one that had auctorite, & not as the Scribes. 23 And there was in their Sinagoge a man vexed with an vnclene spirite, and he cryed 24 sayinge: Alas, what haue we to do with the thou Iesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroye vs? I knowe the what thou art euen that holy one of God. 25 And Iesus rebuked hym sayinge: holde thy peace, and come out of the man. 26 And whan the vncleane spirite had toarne him, & cryed with a loude voyce, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amased, in so moch that they demaunded one of another amonge them selues sayinge: what thyng is this? What newe doctrine is thys? For with auctorite commaunded he the foule spirites, and they obeyed hym. 28 And immediatly his fame spred abroad through out all the region borderinge on Galile. 29 And forth with, whan they were come out of the Synagoge they entred into the house of Symon and Andrew, wyth Iames and Iohn. 30 But Simons mother in lawe laye sycke of a feuer. And anone they tell him of her. 31 And he came, & toke her by the hande: & lifte her vp: & ymediatly the feuer forsoke hyr, & she mynistred vnto them. 32 And at euen when the sonne was downe, they brought vnto him all that were dyseased, and them that were vexed with deuyls. 33 And all the cytie was gathred to gether at the dore, 34 and he healed many that were sycke of dyuers deseases, and cast out many deuyls, & suffred not the deuyls to speake, because they knewe him. 35 And in the mornynge very early, Iesus (whan he was rysen vp) departed, and went out into a solitary place, and there prayed. 36 And Symon and they that were with hym, folowed after hym. 37 And when they had founde him, they saye vnto him: all men seke for the. 38 And he sayd vnto them: let vs go into the next townes, that I maye preach there also: for therfore am I come. 39 And he preached in their Synagoges, in all Galile, and cast the deuyls out. 40 And ther came a leper to him, besechynge hym, and knelyng downe, and sayeng vnto him, yf thou wilt, thou cannest make me cleane. 41 And Iesus had compassion on hym, & puth forth his hande, touched hym, & sayeth vnto him: I wyll, be thou cleane. 42 And assone as he had spoken, immediatly the leprosy departed from him, 43 and he sent him awaye forth with, 44 and sayeth vnto hym. Se thou saye nothynge to any man: but get the hence, shewe thy selfe to the Preaste, and offer for thy clensinge, those thinges whych Moses commaunded, for a witnesse vnto them. 45 But he (assone as he was departed) beganne to tell many thinges, and to publyshe the sayenge: in so moch that Iesus coulde nomore openly entre into the cytie, but was with out in desert places. And they came to hym from euery quarter.
