9At this time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As he was coming up from the water he saw the heavens torn open and the Spirit coming down upon him, like a dove. 11And a voice from heaven said, "You are my beloved Son; you have I chosen.
12Immediately afterwards God's Spirit drove him out into the desert. 13There he remained for forty days, being tempted by Satan and living among the wild beasts. And afterwards angels came to serve him.
1In the beginning the Word already was,
The Word was with God;
the Word was himself God.
2 From eternity the Word was with God.
3Through him all things came to be;
without him nothing whatever came to be.
4All that exists had life in him,
and the life was the light of men.
5The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness did not overcome it.
