1The beginning of the good message of Jesus Anointed, [Son of God]. 2As it has been written in Isaian the prophet, "Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You, 3the voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Master! Make straight the paths.'" 4John came baptizing in the wilderness, and proclaiming a baptism of repentence for forgiveness of failures. 5And all the Judean country, and the Jerusalemites, went out to him, and were all baptized in the Jordan River by him, having confessed their failures. 6And John was clothed in the hair of a camel, and had a leather girdle about his loin, and eating locusts and wild honey. 7And he proclaimed, saying, "He who comes after me is stronger than me, of Whom I am not fit to stoop down to loosen the thong of His sandals. 8Truly, I baptize you [in] water, but He will baptize you in the Mentality of Separation."
9And it was in those days that Jesus came from Nazerath of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10And going up from the water immediately, He saw the heaven being torn, and the Mentality as a dove coming down upon him. 11And there was a voice out of the heavens, "You are My Son, the Beloved, in Whom I take delight."
12And the Mentality at once thrust Him out into the wilderness. 13And He was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts, and the messengers ministered to Him.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through Him, and without him not even one came into being. What has come into being 4in Him was life, and the life was the light of men, 5and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1But brothers, I make known to you the good message which I proclaimed to you, which you also received, in which you also stand; 2by which you also are being saved if you hold fast the word I announced to you, unless you had persuasion in vain. 3For I delivered to you in the first place what I also received, that the Anointed died for our failures according to the Scriptures, 4and that He was buried, and has been raised the third day, according to the Scriptures, 5and that He was seen by Cephas; then by the twelve; 6afterwards, He was seen by over five hundred brothers at one time, of whom, most remain until now, but also some fell asleep. 7Afterward, he was seen by Jacob, then by all the Ambassadors, 8and lastly of all, even as if to one born out of time, He was seen by me also.
