Mark 1:9-13

9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens cleaving asunder, and the Spirit like a dove descended upon him:
11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

John 1:1-5

1IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2The same was in the beginning with God.
3All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made.
4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1NOW I make known unto you, brethren, the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye received, wherein also ye stand;
2By which also ye are being saved, if ye hold fast the words in which I preached it unto you, unless ye believed in vain.
3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4And that he was buried, and that he is risen the third day according to the scriptures:
5And that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve:
6After that, he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7After that, he appeared to James; then to all the apostles..
8And last of all he appeared to me also, as to the one ¹born out of due time.

¹ Or, abortively.

Exodus 3:11–15

11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharao, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say unto me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the hildren of Israel, JEHOVAH, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
