Mark 1:9-16 - eBook edition
1.9 It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth, Galilee and was submerged in the Jordan River by John.
1.10 Right away as He climbed up out of the water, He saw the skies split and the Spirit as a dove coming down to Him.
1.11 A voice came out of the heavenly regions, "You are My loved Son. I am pleased by You."
1.12 Right away the Spirit sent Him out into the backcountry.
1.13 He was in the backcountry forty days experiencing trouble from the Opponent. He was with the wild animals, and the angels were serving Him.
John 1:1-5 - eBook edition
1.1 The Message was there in the beginning, the Message was close to God, and the Message was God.

1.4 There was life in Him, and the life was the light of the people.
1.5 The light shines in the dark, and the dark does not take it down.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8 - eBook edition
15.1 Brothers, I am informing you about the good news that I shared with you, that you also took in, and that you also have stood in.
15.2 You are rescued through it. I myself shared the good news with you to some type of conclusion if you continue to hold to it. If not, you trusted for no reason.
15.3 You see, I turned over to you some of the first things which I also took in, that the Anointed King died for our sins in line with the Old Testament writings,
15.4 that He was buried, that He got up on the third day in line with the Old Testament writings,
15.5 and that He was seen by Peter, then by the twelve.
15.6 After that, He was seen by more than five hundred brothers at once. Most of them remain until now, but some have fallen asleep.
15.7 After that, He was seen by James, then by all of the missionaries.
15.8 But last of all, he was seen also by me, as if by an aborted fetus.
Luke 16 (´BV` Book 2015)
8 “The master applauded the house manager, who was wrong, because he did it with focus on a goal. The sons of this world are more focused on their own generation than the sons of light.“
9 I tell you, “Make friends for yourselves using the riches that are wrong so that when it ends, they will accept you onto the tents beyond this world.
10 The person who is dependable in the smallest thing is dependable in much, and the person who is wrong in the smallest things is wrong in much.
11 So if you have not become dependable in the wrong riches, who will trust the true riches to you?“
12And if you did not become dependable in another person´s things, he will not give you your own things“.
Ephesians 2 (´BV`, Book 2015)
13 But now, in the Anointed King Jesus, you, the people who were a long way away in the past, have come near in the Anointed King´s blood.
14 You see, He is our peace, the One who made the two one and broke down the dividing hedgerow between them.
15 He made it so that the hostility in His physical body (the law of demands in rules) is useless so that He might create in Himself one new person from the two, making peace
16 and He might completely restore the relationship of the two to God in one body through the cross when He killed the hostility on it
17 and came to tell the good news of peace to you, the people a ling way away and the people near,
18 because through Him we (the two in one spirit) have access to the father.
19 From this, then, it is clear that you are no longer strangers and local foreigners, but you are citizens together wit the sacred people and living in God´s house.
Revelation 20 (´BV`, Book 2015)
1 I saw an angel come down out of the sky who had the key to the bottomless area and a huge chain in his hand.
2 He took the dragon into custody (the original snake who is an accuser and the Opponent) and chained him up 1000 years.
3He threw him into the bottomless area, closed it, and put a seal on it so he would not mislead the nations anymore until the 1000 years were finished. After that it would be necessary for him to be released a little while.
4I saw thrones. People sat on them. Judgement was given to them. I saw the souls of the people whose heads had been cut off with an ax because of what Jesus witnessed and because of God's message. Whoever did not bow down and kiss the wild animal or his image and did not receive the mark on their forehead or on their hand, lived and were kings with the Anointed King a thousand years.
5 The rest of the dead did not live until the 1000 years were finished. THis is the first return back to life.
6The person who has a part in the first return back to life is blessed and sacred. The second death has no authority over these people, but they will be priests of God and of the Anointed king. They will be kings with Him 1000 years.
7When the 1000 years are finished, the Opponent will be released out of his jail.
