9In those days, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and he got baptized in the Jordan by John. 10And right away, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the sky split apart, and the Holy Spirit was coming down to him. 11And there was a voice out of the heavens: "You're my son! I love you. I'm pleased with you!"
12Right away, the Spirit sent Jesus out into the wilderness. 13He was in the wilderness forty days, being tested by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were serving him.
1In the beginning, was the Word. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2This Word existed in the beginning with God. 3Everything came to be through the Word — and without the Word not even one thing came to be. What came to be in the Word was Life. 4And Life was the light of human beings. 5The light's shining in the dark, and the dark hasn't understood it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1Now, brothers and sisters, I want to tell you about the good news that I preached to you. It's the good news that you accepted, and in which you stand. 2You're being saved by his message, which I preached to you,if you hold on to it. That is, unless you've believed for nothing!
3Because I handed over to you, right at the beginning, what I received:
that Christ died for our sins in line with the scriptures, 4that he was buried, and that he rose on the third day in line with the scriptures, 5and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve, 6and then by more than five hundred brothers and sisters all at once.
Of these, most are still around today, but some have passed away. 7Then he was seen by James, then by all the apostles. 8And last of all, almost in an emergency birth, he was seen by me too.
