Mark 1:9-13

9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed by John in the Jordan.
10And when he came up from the water, immediately he saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him.
11And a voice came from the heavens, saying, You are my beloved Son, in whom I delight.
12And immediately the Spirit conveyed him into the desert;
13And he continued there in the desert for forty days, and was tempted by Satan; and was among wild beasts; but the angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2He was in the beginning with God.
3And by him everything was made, and without him not even one thing was made, of the things which have been made.
4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5And the light shone in darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-9

1Now, brethren, I declare to you the gospel, which I preached to you, which you also received, in which you also stand,
2By which you are also saved, if you retain that word which I preached to you, unless, indeed, you have believed in vain.
3For I delivered to you, among the first things, what I also received first - that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures;
4And that he was buried; and that he was raised the third day, according to the Scriptures;
5And that he was seen by Cephas; and then by the twelve;
6And after that he was seen by more than five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater number of them remain until now, but some have fallen asleep.
7After that he was seen by James; then by all the apostles;
8And last of all, he was seen by me also, as if by one born out of season;
9For I am the least of the apostles; one not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
