Mark 1:9-13

9Now it came to pass, that in those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10And immediately, as he was coming out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the spirit like a dove descending, and remaining upon him.
11And a voice came from the heavens, saying, "Thou art my son, my beloved, in whom I am well pleased."
12And immediately the spirit forced him away into the wilderness.
13And he was there in the wilderness forty days and forty nights, and was tempted by Satan, and was among wild beasts, and angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

1At the beginning was 'the word;' and 'the word' was with God; and 'the word' was God.
2He was at the beginning with God.
3All things were made through him; and without him was made nothing that was made.
4In him was life, that life which is the light of men.
5And the light shone in darkness; but the darkness received it not.
