Mark 1:35-44

35

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.

36

And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him.

37

When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.”

38

But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.”

39

And He was preaching in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons.

40

Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”

41

Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”

42

As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.

43

And He strictly warned him and sent him away at once,

44

and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”


John 5:24-30 (Departed)

24

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

25

Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.

26

For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,

27

and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.

28

Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice

29

and come forth-those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

30

I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
