"Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said,John testified, saying,'After me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me.'I didnít know him, but for this reason I came baptizing in water: that he would be revealed to Israel."
"I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained on him.
"Behold, the Lamb of God!"The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them,
"What are you looking for?"They said to him,
"Rabbi"(which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher),
"where are you staying?"
He said to them,
"Come, and see."They came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about the tenth hour.
One of the two who heard John, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peterís brother.
He first found his own brother, Simon, and said to him,
"We have found the Messiah!"(which is, being interpreted, Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said,
"You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas"(which is by interpretation, Peter).

"Come and see."Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him,
"Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!"Nathanael said to him,
"How do you know me?"Jesus answered him,
"Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."Nathanael answered him,
"Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are King of Israel!"Jesus answered him,
"Because I told you,He said to him,ĎI saw you underneath the fig tree,ído you believe? You will see greater things than these!"
"Most certainly, I tell you, hereafter you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

Jesusí mother was there. Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the marriage.
When the wine ran out, Jesusí mother said to him,
"They have no wine."Jesus said to her,
"Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come."His mother said to the servants,
"Whatever he says to you, do it."Now there were six water pots of stone set there after the Jewsí manner of purifying,
containing two or three metretes apiece.
Jesus said to them,
"Fill the water pots with water."They filled them up to the brim.
He said to them,
"Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast."So they took it.

He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up.
He entered, as was his custom, into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
The book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. He opened the book, and found the place where it was written,
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began to tell them,
All testified about him, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth, and they said,
"Isnít this Josephís son?"
He said to them,
"Doubtless you will tell me this parable,'Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done at Capernaum, do also here in your hometown.'"
"Most certainly I tell you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown.
They were all filled with wrath in the synagogue, as they heard these things.
teaching in their synagogues,
preaching the Good News of the Kingdom,
and healing every disease and every sickness among the people.
The report about him went out into all Syria. They brought to him all who were sick, afflicted with various diseases and torments, possessed with demons, epileptics, and paralytics; and he healed them.
He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons.
He came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. He was teaching them on the Sabbath day, and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority.
In the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying,
"Ah! what have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth?Jesus rebuked him, saying,
"Be silent, and come out of him!"When the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
Amazement came on all, and they spoke together, one with another, saying,
"What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!"
News about him went out into every place of the surrounding region.
They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught.
They were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes.
Immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, saying,
"Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene?Jesus rebuked him, saying,
"Be quiet, and come out of him!"
The unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying,
"What is this? A new teaching? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him!"
The report of him went out immediately everywhere into all the region of Galilee and its surrounding area.
Immediately, when they had come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
He rose up from the synagogue, and entered into Simonís house. Simonís mother-in-law was afflicted with a great fever, and they begged him for her.
He stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her. Immediately she rose up and served them.
When the sun was setting, all those who had any sick with various diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
Demons also came out from many, crying out, and saying,
"You are the Christ, the Son of God!"Rebuking them, he didnít allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.
Now Simonís wifeís mother lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him about her.
Simon and those who were with him followed after him; and they found him, and told him,
"Everyone is looking for you."He said to them,
"Letís go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because I came out for this reason."
But he said to them,
ďI must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other cities also. For this reason I have been sent.Ē
He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
