Genesis 12:1-5

1 Now the Lord had said to Abram, "Get out of your country, and from your relatives, and from your father's house, to a land that 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'll be a blessing.
3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse him that curses you, and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.
4 So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he went out of Haran.
5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gotten, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran, and they went out to go into the land of Canaan, and into the land of Canaan they went.

Psalm 23

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I won't lack what I need.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul, he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I won't fear any evil, for you are with me, your rod and your staff comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, you anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I'll live in the house of the Lord forever.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1 Ho, everyone that thirsts, come to the waters, and he that has no money, come, buy, and eat, yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread? And your labor for what doesn't satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come to me, hear, and your soul shall live, and I'll make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Mark 1:9-13

9 And in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan River.
10 And immediately, coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending on him,
11 And a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
12 And immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

1 The Word was there in the beginning, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him, and nothing that was made was made without him.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shined in darkness, and the darkness didn't understand it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1 Also brothers, I declare to you the gospel that I preached to you, that you've also received, and in which you stand,
2 By which also you're saved, if you keep in mind what I preached to you, unless you've believed for nothing.
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures,
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures,
5 And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve,
6 After that, he was seen by more than five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have died.
7 After that, he was seen by James, then by all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen by me also, as if by someone born at the wrong time.
