And there went out unto him all the land of Judea, & they of Jerusalem, & many were baptized of him in the river 3/ Jordan, confessing their sins. 3/ And John Was clothed with camel’s hair, & with a girdle of Skin about his loins; & he did eat Locusts & wild honey; & Preached, saying, There cometh one mighter then I after me, the latchets of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down & unlose. I indeed have baptized you with water; but he shall not only bap4/tize you with water but with fire & the Holy Ghost. 4/ And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazereth of Gallilee, & was baptized of John in Jordan. & And straitway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, & the spirit like a dove decending upon him; And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased. And John bear record of 5/ it. And immediately the Spirit took him into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness forty days, Satan Seaking to tempt him; & was with the 6/ wild beasts; & the angels ministered unto him. 6/ Now after that John was put into Prison, Jesus came into Gallilee Preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, & saying, The time is fulfilled, & the kingdom of God is at hand; 7/ repent ye, & believe the gospel. 7 And now as he walked by the sea of Gallilee, he saw Simon & Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. & And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, & I will make you to become fishers of men.

Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee, who thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, & come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torne him, & cried with a loud 11/ voice, he came out of him. 11/ And they were all amazed, insomuch [p. 9 (second numbering)]
