1 The office of Iohn the Baptist. 9 Iesus is baptized, 12 tempted, 14 he preacheth: 16 calleth Peter, Andrew, Iames and Iohn: 23 healeth one that had a deuill, 29 Peters mother in law, 32 many diseased persons, 41 and cleanseth the Leper.
27And they were all amased, insomuch that they questioned among themselues, saying, What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authoritie commandeth he euen the vncleane spirits, and they doe obey him.
45But he went out, and beganne to publish it much, and to blase abroad the matter: insomuch that Iesus could no more openly enter into the citie, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from euery quarter.45

Mr 1:1 The Beginning of the Ministry of Christ SUMMARY OF MARK 1: The Mission of John the Baptist. His Preaching in the Wilderness. His Baptism in the Jordan. The Baptism of Jesus and the Anointing. The Temptation. Christ's Ministry in Galilee Begun. The Call of Four Apostles. An Unclean Spirit Cast Out. The Increased Fame of Jesus. Peter's Wife's Mother. Solitary Prayer. Preaching Throughout Galilee. Healing the Leper. The beginning, etc. This is a sort of title. The whole history of Jesus is an unfolding of the gospel. Gospel. Good news. Jesus. The personal name given by the angel (Mt 1:21), meaning "Savior". Christ. The official title of the Lord. It means "the anointed". Kings and priests were anointed in Israel, and Jesus, "the Lord's Anointed" (see 1Sa 24:10) is our Priest and King. They were anointed with oil; Jesus with the Holy Spirit (Ac 10:38).
Mr 1:2,3 As it is written in the prophets. Isa 40:3 Mal 3:1. See notes on Mt 3:3 11:10.
Mr 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness. For account of the wilderness and John the Baptist, see PNT "Mt 3:1". And preach the baptism of repentance. He preached, as well as baptized. Only those who repented were fit subjects of baptism. Hence it was called "the baptism of repentance". Repentance signifies not only sorrow for sin, but the resolve to sin no more. For the remission of sins. This indicates the object of repentance and baptism. Those who repented and were baptized were pardoned. Both were needful to remission. Compare Ac 2:38.
Mr 1:5 There went out unto him. See notes on Mt 3:5,6.
Mr 1:6 John was clothed with camel's hair. See PNT "Mt 3:4".
Mr 1:7 There cometh one . . . after me. See PNT "Mt 3:11".
Mr 1:8 He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. See PNT "Mt 3:11".
Mr 1:9 In those days. When John had been preaching and baptizing about six months. For the account of the baptism of Jesus see notes on Mt 3:13,17.
Mr 1:10 Straightaway coming up out of the water. The Greek preposition translated "out of" is "ek", which means out from within. This could only be true of immersion. Thus all great and candid Pedo-baptist scholars concede that Christ was baptized.
Mr 1:13 Tempted of Satan. See notes on Mt 4:1-11.
Mr 1:14 Now after John was put in prison. Mark proceeds to the account of the Savior's public ministry in Galilee. Between Christ's baptism and this occurred the events narrated in John, chapters 2,3, and 4. For notes on this ministry see Mt 4:12-25.
Mr 1:16 He saw Simon and Andrew. For notes on the call of the four apostles see Mt 4:18-22.
Mr 1:21 They went into Capernaum. For account of Capernaum, see PNT "Mt 4:13". Entered into the synagogue. For description of Jewish synagogue, see PNT "Mt 4:23".
Mr 1:22 They were astonished at his doctrine. See PNT "Mt 7:28". Scribes. For account of scribes, see PNT "Mt 5:20".
Mr 1:23 A man with an unclean spirit. See PNT "Mt 8:28". Compare Lu 4:31-37. The New Testament plainly teaches that demoniac possession was a real and actual possession of the soul by a fallen spirit.
Mr 1:24 What have we to do with thee? A common Jewish way of saying, "Do not trouble us". Art thou come to destroy us? An admission that Christ came to destroy the devil and his works. I know thee. The demon made a better confession that most of the Jews.
Mr 1:26 He came out of him. At the command. The whole account shows that there was a real possession by an evil spirit.
Mr 1:27 They were all amazed. Those in the synagogue.
Mr 1:28 His fame spread abroad. For notes on the increasing fame of Christ, see Mt 4:25.
Mr 1:29-34 For notes on the healing of Peter's wife's mother, see Mt 8:14.
Mr 1:35 And in the morning. See PNT "Mt 8:17".
Mr 1:36 Simon. Peter. They that were with him. The other disciples.
Mr 1:38 Let us go into the next towns. The villages of Galilee.
Mr 1:39 Throughout all Galilee. This was the first missionary circuit of Galilee. Galilee was then densely peopled. Josephus says it contained 240 towns and villages.
Mr 1:40 There came a leper. See notes on Mt 8:2-4. Compare also Lu 5:12-15. This miracle occurred after the Sermon on the Mount. Leprosy, that terrible scourge of the East, is unknown in our times, or even in the United States.
Mr 1:44 Show thyself to the priest. At Jerusalem. Those things which Moses commanded. See Le 14:4-7 and see PNT "Mt 8:4".
