The Gospel Paraphrased
There are many fine translations of the Gospels readily available. This paraphrase is not meant to replace them. Rather the intention here is to offer a more contemporary rendering so that you can imaginatively translate the Gospel into your own situation.
This Sunday's Gospel Paraphrased
Mk 1: 12-16
After Jesus’ baptism when the heavens opened, the Spirit descended and the Father’s voice was heard saying, ‘You are my Beloved Son!’ the Spirit immediately drove Jesus out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness for forty days begin tested by Satan. He was with the wild beasts and the angels cared for him.
