And they left their father Zebedee with the hired-servants in the ship and went after him.




     {Mar 1:21-28 & Luk 4:31-37 Capernaum.}



     1:21 And they travel into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and was teaching. 1:22 And they were being astounded at his teaching; for* he was teaching them like one having authority and not like the scribes.



     1:23 And a man was in their synagogue in him was an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 1:24saying, Ah! What is it to us and to you, Jesus the Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you, I know who you are, the Holy One of God.



     1:25 And Jesus rebuked it, saying, Hush and come out of him.



     1:26 And the unclean spirit came out of him, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice. 1:27And they were all amazed, so-that they began to debate together with themselves, saying, What is this thing?

     1:32 Now when* it became evening, when the sun set, they were bringing to him all who were ill and those who were demon-possessed. 1:33 And the whole city was gathered together next to the door. 1:34 And he healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons, and he was not allowing the demons to speak, because they knew him.




     {Mar 1:35-39 & Mat 4:23-25 & Luk 4:42-44 Preaching through Galilee.}



     1:35 And exceedingly early, having risen* up in the morning, while yet at night, he came out and went away into a desolate place, and he was praying there. 1:36 And Simon, and those who were with him, pursued him; 1:37 and having found him, they say to him, All are seeking you.




     1:38 And he says to them, We should be going into the next towns, in order that I might also preach there; for* I have come *for this purpose.1:39 And he was preaching and casting out demons in their synagogues in the whole of Galilee.

Be cleansed. 1:42 And having spoken, the leprosy immediately went away from him and he was cleansed. 1:43 And he scolded him and immediately sent him out, 1:44 and says to him, See that you say nothing to anyone, but go; show yourself to the priest, and offer the things which Moses commanded concerning your cleansing *for a testimony to them.{Lev 13:49, 14:2-4}1:45 But he went out and began to preach it much, and to broadcast the word, so-that he {i.e. Jesus}was no longer able to openly enter into the city, but was outside in desolate places, and they were coming to him from everywhere.
