MARK 1:1-8 TEXT
The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
“See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way;
the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight,’”
John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5
And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6
Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 7
He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. 8
I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Anyone who has learnt about Jesus and Christianity from Muslim sources possesses a very distorted knowledge. Any Muslim who would like to find out about Jesus, the seal of the prophets, is welcome to contact us for a study specially customised for your needs. Muhammad Ibn Sereen once said: “This knowledge is a matter of deen [religion], so be careful who you take your deen [religion] from.” This is also true of Christianity, be careful from whom you learn about Jesus. Learn about Jesus from his followers. Salvation from the chains of legalism is for you, Jesus is the only Sharia. Contact us
