Mark 1:7-9 Living Bible (TLB)

Here is a sample of his preaching:

“Someone is coming soon who is far greater than I am, so much greater that I am not even worthy to be his slave.[a] I baptize you with water[b] but he will baptize you with God’s Holy Spirit!”*

Then one day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John there in the Jordan River.

Footnotes:

  1. Mark 1:7 so much greater that I am not even worthy to be his slave, literally, “whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose.”
  2. Mark 1:8 with water, or “in water.” The Greek word is not clear on this controversial point. with God’s Holy Spirit, or “in God’s Holy Spirit”; the Greek is not clear.
