Mark 1:9-13

And it happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. And as soon as he came out of the water he saw the skies split and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him; and there came a voice from the skies, saying: You are my son whom I love, with you I am well pleased. And immediately the Spirit drove him out into the desert. And he was in the desert forty days, being tested by Satan, and he lived with the wild animals, and the angels served him.

John 1:1-5

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, and the word was with God, and the word was God. He was in the beginning, with God. Everything came about through him, and without him not one thing came about. What came about in him was life, and the life was the light of mankind; and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

ΒΆ I remind you, brothers, of the gospel which I brought to you, which you accepted, on which you have stood fast, by which you are saved; what I said when I brought the gospel to you, if you retain it still, if you did not become believers frivolously. To you I handed on what I had been given to believe which was of the highest importance: that Christ died for our sins, as in the scrip-tures; and that he was buried, and that he rose on the third day, as in the scriptures, and that he was seen by Peter, and then by the twelve. Then he was seen by more than five hundred brothers all at once, and most of them are still with us, but some have died. And then he was seen by James, and then by all the apostles; and last of all, as to an aborted child, he appeared also to me.
