Genesis 12:1-5

1 And YAHWEH had said to Abram, Go out from your land and from your kindred, and from your father's house, to the land which I will show you.
2 And I will make of you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great; and you will be a blessing.
3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse the one despising you. And in you all families of the earth shall be blessed2.
4 And Abram went out, even as YAHWEH had spoken to him. And Lot went with him. And Abram was a son of seventy five years when he departed from Haran.
5 And Abram took his wife Sarai, and his brother's son, Lot, and all their substance that they had gained, and the persons they had gotten in Haran. And they went out to go into the land of Canaan. And they came into the land of Canaan.

2 Yahweh's first promise of covenant blessing to Abraham and a prophecy for all time that all nations should support Israel if they want to be blessed.

Psalm 23

1 A Psalm of David.
YAHWEH is my shepherd; I shall not lack.1
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me to waters of rest;2
3 He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.3
5 You prepare a table for me before ones vexing me; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.4
6 Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of YAHWEH for days without end.

1 This is probably David's most beautiful psalm showing his total trust and appeasement with Yahweh as his shepherd. Being a shepherd himself David knew that in order for a sheep to feel totally content he must have security, food, water, and he must feel safety under the hand of his shepherd. David is showing in this psalm that no matter what else is around him, that his trust and security in YHWH is all that he needs for contentment.
2 This compared to a sheep having no pasture and stagnant water to drink. However with Yahweh as shepherd there will always be abundance of food and water for peaceful living.
3 The rod is to fight off predators and the staff is to gently lead the sheep when they go off track. The rod and staff could also be compared to the Torah in the 1st covenant and Yahweh's grace in the New Covenant.
4 This was customary treatment of an honored guest at a banquet and shows YHWH's abundance to those in covenant relationship with Him.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1 Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the water; and he who has no money, come buy grain and eat. Yes, come buy grain, wine and milk without silver and with no price1. (Is 43:18-20,)
2 Why do you weigh out silver for that which is not bread, and your labor for what never satisfies? Listen carefully to Me and eat the good; and let your soul delight itself in fatness2.
3 Bend your ear and come to Me; hear, and your soul shall live; and I will cut an everlasting covenant with you, the faithful mercies of David3.

1 The word of YHWH has no price tag to it and one cannot buy or earn his/her salvation, it is a gift of YHWH paid for by the blood of Yahshua. (Math 10:8, 1 Pe 1:18-20, Math 5:6)
2 Joh 6:32-35, 53-58
3 Whoever, repents and accepts the shed blood of Messiah (who is from the lineage of King David) will inherit the blessings with King David. (Jer 31:31-33, Jer 32:37-40, Ezek 34:24-25, Ps 89:2-5, Acts 13:34)

Mark 1:9-13

9 And it happened in those days, Yahshua came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And going up from the water, immediately He saw the heavens being torn, and the Spirit coming down as a dove upon Him.
11 And there was a voice out of the heavens, You are My Son, the Beloved, in whom I am well pleased. (Psa. 2:7; Gen. 22:2; Isa. 42:1)
12 And the Spirit at once drove Him out into the wilderness.
13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts. And the cherubs ministered to Him.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning1 was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.
2 He was in the beginning with Elohim.
3 Everything existed through His hands, and without Him, not even one thing existed of the things, which have existed2.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men;
5 and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.

1 In the beginning in Hebrew is “B'resheet” and John is paralleling the book of Genesis and showing Yahshua being a part of the creation process with Yahweh the Father. The Aramaic word for “word” is miltha and is not easily translated but can also be manifestation or substance.
2 John is clearly pointing to Yahshua's preexistence with the Father and also that Yahshua was with the Father creating all things. If you look at all creation accounts
in scripture there is always a duality to Elohim in creation consisting of Yah Yahweh the father and Yahshua Yahweh His son. Yahweh is a family name. Elohim is a plural word also. (Gen 1:26, Eccl 12:1, Ps 149:1, Is 54:5)

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1 But, brothers, I reveal to you the good news which I preached to you, which you also received, in which you also stand,
2 by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the Word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you in the first place what I also received, that Messiah died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures,
5 and that He appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.
6 Then He appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, of whom are still standing until now, but some also fell asleep.
7 Then He was seen by Jacob, then by all the apostles;
8 and last of all, He was also seen by me; ignorant and imperfectly trained as I was.
