Amen.

Mark 1:9-13

9 Now, it happened in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And just as he was coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parting, and the Spirit coming down upon him like a dove. 11 And a voice came out of the heavens, saying, "You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased."
12 And immediately the Spirit led him out in the desert; 13 and he was in the desert forty days, during which he was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, but the angels were ministering to him.
